Anyone else remember this grade school acronym?
Well that’s exactly what fear is. No matter how small or large your fear may appear, you CAN conquer it! Here’s how:
Do something you’re scared of.
Do the things you’re scared of. Crazy statement, right?! No. The number one way to conquer a fear is to confront it. Please don’t go trying insane things that put you or others in harms way. But do your best and try to face even your smallest fears head on. Slowly expose yourself to what makes you feel uncomfortable until it becomes more familiar.
Forget about it.
Forget how scary that thing is and retrain your brain to think about the positive and optimistic points of what you fear. Our thoughts enhance our reality. You ever notice the more you think about how scary something is the more tense you get? Well challenge yourself to take a deep breath and turn your brain off. Focus you attention on the things that give you strength and keep you calm. Mind over matter.
Connect with fearless people.
If you are having trouble harnessing your inner strength then connect with fearless people. Observe their habits and even ask them how they stand up and face their fears. You become the people that you align yourself with.
