There is so much that happens in human life. We call these expiriences. Our life is like a stage, and we, the characters in it!
We cannot have control of everything that happens to us. We cannot always choose to have the good things and avoid the bad. Bad things will happen as well as good things. It is part of our living. It is that which makes living worthwhile.
The constant expiriencing of failures gives birth to a beautiful phenomenon in human life and that’s hope!
Hoping that tomorrow will be better than today.
I sometimes wonder how will it be if we were to have all we wished for?
If life was all about merry and bliss and happiness….
I think the essence of living would have been missing!
Errors are bound to happen and the course of our lives sometimes will end up not as it should. But there’s a glory that meets the eye…lying far beyond the horizons….a hopeful lifestyle we wish we could acheive after several moments of tussling and struggling.
For it’s only after moments of battles that victory can be achieved.
We cannot change the past but we can certainly make our tomorrow beautiful! But that which stands as a barrier is Fear!
But why do we fear?…
We are afraid when outcomes are unknown and unpredictable. We become afraid when we have little or no confidence in ourselves.
However, getting through fear is a skill that anyone can learn. And I would probably say there is no general way to overcoming fears. It’s relative. At a more individualistic level, each person has this self devising strategy to battle fear.
We can’t live without fear, because it’s an emotion. It is what makes us human. However, we can subdue it, not to blur our vision of what we tend to realize.
How to Start Overcoming Fear
1. Have that awareness:
We need to bring ourselves to the point of realising that fear destroys, it stagnates and it regresses our progress.
2. Identify your fears:
Know what makes you scared. What limits you. If you can’t identify your fears you can’t challenge them.
3. Challenge your fears:
As difficult as it may sound, the best way to overcome your enemy is not to run away from it but to face it. Start doing what makes you scared. Start acting upon that dream you think it’s too daring. Do one thing everyday that scares you. High achievers, regardless of occupation, understand that taking risks and massive action is a vital part in getting from where you are to where you want to go. And that goes for in life — and in business. But often these risks are met with fear, which can cause people to question their ambitions and prevent them from taking action.
The lion is not the king of the jungle because it’s large. There are larger animals than it. It is because, it is not afraid to dare….
We have that power to defeat our fears and not let it get the best of us. And above all believe conquers fear.
