Do you have a phobia you’d like to overcome?
Begin by comprehending this…
Fear is a mental construct. You can utilise your thoughts to stop it and live a more fulfilling life because it’s a mental process.
Now, if you have a phobia—a dread that can make you feel helpless in particular situations—you’ll almost certainly need expert counselling to overcome it.
If you’re like most of us, however, you don’t have that kind of crippling terror. Instead, you struggle with many minor forms of dread that prevent you from enjoying the life you truly desire.
You may hear all kinds of anxieties if you just listen to people talk. You name it: fear of losing, fear of talking to strangers, fear of looking awful or foolish, fear of making a phone call, fear of beginning a business…
It’s a terrible way to live to spend your life living in dread and never completely exploring your goals.
Whether you’re afraid of the unknown or previous unpleasant experiences, keep in mind that it’s not the situation that’s making you nervous. It’s a mental process that’s driving you to be worried and doubtful. With a little knowledge, you can reverse the process.
Here are some ways for dealing with a fearful situation:
Face the Person or Thing You Are Afraid Of
Backing away from a fear-inducing circumstance or person causes your fear to grow larger and larger until you confront it. It can get to the point that it takes over your thoughts and feelings during the day, and it can even keep you awake at night.
However, if you confront your fear, it will vanish. The key to mental freedom is your ability to confront and act despite your worries. It makes you happier and helps you achieve more achievement.
Here’s a useful practise for confronting your concerns.
Identify a scenario or person in your life that you are frightened of, and make a commitment to address that fear right away. Allowing it to rule you or make you unhappy for another day is a waste of time.
When you resolve to tackle a fear-inducing circumstance, you naturally gain in self-esteem, confidence, and courage.
Don’t waste time trying to figure out the “how.”
The next time you have a fearful objective, don’t try to figure out how you’re going to achieve it. Worry, doubt, and anxiety will only increase as a result of this.
Complete the following three practises to avoid feeling overwhelmed and paralysed when pursuing a goal that inspires you:
- Recognize that you’ve introduced a new idea that doesn’t yet fit with your old self-perception, and that this is what’s making you uncomfortable.
- Recognize that your old paradigm (idea) does not want you to change. It wants you to keep doing what you’re doing, where you’re doing it, and how you’re doing it.
Rather than succumbing to your paradigm, constantly impressing the new notion on the subconscious mind with thankfulness and faith (using affirmations, a goal card, and visualization).
- Follow the advice given to you about what your initial step should be. Then, keep your eyes peeled for further indications and keep moving forward, pushing into the uncharted region you’ve fallen in love with.
Act in a “As If” manner.
This is a strong technique that allows you to walk, talk, carry yourself, and, most importantly, feel as if you were completely fearless in a given scenario.
Create a mental image of who you want to be in the scenario, then act like that person. You’ll notice that you stand up straight, smile, move quickly and confidently, and act as though you already possess the confidence you seek in every way.
Gratitude is one of the most powerful feelings a person can have. A grateful mentality is so powerful that it leaves no room for fear, worry, or uncertainty.
So, the next time you’re afraid, think of a few things you’re grateful for and truly appreciate them. That may seem like a hard request, but if you can accomplish it, things will begin to alter in an instant.
It’s possible for you to succeed.
If you looked into why so few people reach their full potential and proceed to higher levels of performance, you’d find one common factor: fear.
When a person steps out of their comfort zone, they are afraid, doubtful, and worried, and they withdraw to what they consider to be safety. When, in reality, it is the most dangerous location to live since there is no room for growth.
There is disintegration when there is no progress. Nothing is ever the same. Either we’re moving forward and towards something greater and greater, or we’re moving backwards.
We must do the thing we think we can’t do in order to progress. We need to face our fears head on and go straight through them. We enable fear to ruin our success if we don’t.
Make the decision that fear will not prevent you from doing what you want to do. You’re a lot stronger and more resilient than you realise. Today is the day to take action.
