Afraid…

What if I couldn’t speak,

What if I couldn’t breathe,

What if I couldn’t live,

Will there ever be a me?

What if I couldn’t see,

What if I be in need,

What if I’m engolfed with greed,

What will become of me?

What if I’m all alone,

Walking on this long lost road,

What if I got no home,

What will become of me?

What if my life’s complicated

And I’m feeling all frustrated

What if nothing ever works

What will become of me?


What if moments in our lives will always be. That moment when we are seized and gripped with “unhappened fears”.

But it all depends on you to change the what ifs to what is…

Fear often comes when we are about changing our usual routine. When the body is about accepting or facing change, fear always comes in a disguised form of hypothetical thoughts.

We can never stop fear….but we can always overcome it!

And the best way of overcoming fear I doing what makes you afraid…

Do what makes you afraid to overcome fear

Fear keeps you away from making bold steps in life which will propel you closer to your goals and dreams in life. And most often it attacks the mind and subsequently the body refuses to take actions. If you’re constantly caught in the web of confusion and panick in face of an innovation in your life…then that’s fear!

However there’s a thin line between being afraid and being cautious

The Difference

Being Afraid:

I want to start my own business, but I’m too afraid of failing and what people might think of me If I fail.

Being Careful:

I want to start my own business, but before I do, I’ll make sure everything is in place.

Being Afraid:

I want to approach this girl I like, but what If she doesn’t like me? (Fear)

Being Careful:

I want to approach this girl I like, but before I do I have to dress my best and make sure I look the part so I stand a better chance.

Sometimes when we’re too careful we try to make everything “perfect” to the point of never getting it done.

And when we’re afraid, we stop ourselves from doing the things we want through justification and excuses.

Liberate yourself off the bondage of fear and start doing what makes you afraid!

Facing your Giants

Fear is the outcome of self doubt. Con trary to confidence. It’s the thought of….”what if things go wrong?”. It’s an unwanted feeling and an undesirable one at that but inevitable. It springs forth from us, yet we have that power to overcome them.

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, bc 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.

The problem most faced at this point is that most people cling to their fears, because it’s part of who they are.

There are two options: Facing our fears, or running away from them.

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. More than anything in the world, faith and believe ward off fear and renders it meaningless.
