What are the things you would do if you were not afraid? I always ask myself this question to be more aware of how fear affects the endeavours and decisions I want to take in my life. I experienced that fear is a major obstacle for me in making the best out of my personal and private life. Fortunately, by trial and error I learned six tips that hopefully will also help you to wave your fears goodbye and set yourself up for success. Are you ready to take on the journey towards banishing your fears?
Adopt the attitude of “I have not done it before, so I think I can achieve it”
Things that you have not done before can make you feel uncertain because there are no (identical) past experiences you can rely on to make it work. So the fear will arise that it is too hard or too complicated for you to accomplish. The key is to change your attitude. Precisely because it will be the first time, it forms a great opportunity for you to shine and to pull out all the stops.
Do not compare your success with those of others
Embrace the fact that you cannot be good at everything. My belief has always been that people are made to be unique with their own definition of success. It makes no sense to compare with other people as you are walking your own path towards attaining your dreams. Strive to be the best version of yourself in all times and celebrate your own triumphs.
Embrace the fear
Embrace the fear and see it as something positive instead. The fear you feel is a sign that something is coming that help you step outside your comfort zone and grow. So do not stress but rather accept it is as an inevitable yet imperative step towards your road of success. Know that your hard work and dedication will eventually conquer your fear!
Take good care of yourself
It is important to care and nurture yourself to improve your physical, mental, spiritually well-being. Broken down in smaller steps this means to eat well, move a lot, sleep enough and be truly at peace & in touch with yourself. Once you have mastered this, you will notice that you emit power from within and receive a mental boost. You will be more resistant for fear and are more able to overcome fear.
Trust your own values and strengths
In most cases, if not all, fear is not justified. it is not based on any facts. On the contrary, your strengths and values are justified. They always have your back. Try to remember this. So when your feel your fear feelings rise up, tell yourself this. You feel immediately that your fear begins to reduce.
Be willing to work for what you want
Use your life goals and aspirations as guide in your way to beat your fear. Nobody said that the journey to your dreams is easy but it will be so worth it, trust me! So do not let fear rule you out. Instead see it as something positive, as it signals that you are about to achieve something great that will positively amaze you. Be prepared that you will come across fear in your way to success. Encounter it positively with hard work and perseverance.
