“If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.” Robert H Schuller.
Up until now, fear has been the bane of my life, stopping me from doing all sorts of things. Fear, it is said, is the killer of dreams. I’m not talking about fear when there’s real danger – that’s a necessity – but fear of a perceived danger. How many times have you stopped yourself from doing something, not because it’s physically dangerous but because of that all-pervading fear?
So you limit yourself and your life thinking that this will make you safe. The opposite is actually true because deep down, it makes you feel unworthy. That’s because you are in fact rejecting yourself. So there is no better time than now to take a stand.
You have to be prepared to stand up and look fear straight in the face. Because when you do, it loses its power. So let me ask you a question.
“How would you look at fear knowing that it stands for?
False Evidence Appearing Real – it’s just our imagination or
Full-on Exquisite Adrenaline Rush – it can be a signal for excitement
In fact, the energy of fear and excitement are identical; it’s only the interpretation which is different.
It’s all a question of perception and perception is just about how you look at something. Because HOW you look at something determines HOW you see it. And HOW you look at it is determined by your thought processes. Ultimately, this means that there are always more ways of looking at something than you originally thought.
Fear is just a habit. It’s an automatic response based on past programming and you keep listening to the programming. Stop listening, change the record, tell yourself something different and your experience will be different.
Fear is one of the biggest reasons why you are not charging what you’re worth! So, are you willing to challenge you fears and choose differently?
