Fear is always irrational.
It is also something many people cannot shake off most of the time. It is hard, we know, especially when fear is the first thing that comes to mind the moment a plan is conceived.
You have plans and dreams and aspirations in life. It is time to be fearless, and these are the tricks we use that work all the time:
What do you fear about? How does it affect you and what you do? How long has it been going on? Accept that there are things you fear about. Don’t be in denial. Recognizing how you feel is the first step to getting out of it.
The sooner you face your fear, the sooner you can get it over with. Do exactly what you are afraid of. You will be surprised to discover that it’s not as bad as you thought and it’s not as scary as you thought it was. Face your fear and be free.
Take the plunge
Don’t think about it, don’t overanalyze and don’t worry about it. Be spontaneous and always go for what you want even when you think it is the scariest thing you will ever do. In fact, you will realize that you have been capable all along.
Learn from it
There are always lessons to be learned from failure, and the same is true when it comes to fear. When you have tried and failed, it is a learning experience. You might have feared it, but you still added something to your experience and that you can always try again.
Move on from it
Being fearless is not just about facing your fears, it is also about moving on from something you know is not working out or not adding value to your goals and purpose and your life. Fear is irrational, and you can decide always to face it instead.
Fear is a choice, and so is being fearless.
