You Can Conquer All Of Your Fears Today

Has fear ever overwhelmed you to the point that you couldn’t do something you really wanted to do?  This is a very common dilemma faced by lot’s and lot’s of people in our society.
People have fear of many different things, and everybody has a fear of something. Some people have a fear of heights, bugs and insects, public speaking, fear of disease, dying, fear of failure, fear of success, etc.  Luckily, there are many ways to combat fear.

Fear has the power to imprison you by keeping you in a state of paralysis in regards to your goals, plans, and your dreams.  Fear eats away at the core of your being, while holding you back and eroding your quality of life.

While Fear is the brain’s automatic conditioned natural response to a frightening or unfamiliar situation, it can also be controlled. Here are a few suggestions to help you manage the fear response better.

Acknowledge Your Fear.

The first step in controlling fear is to admit you have a fear.  Accept the fear for what it is. Remember that fear is just a feeling that can be controlled.  Repeatedly tell yourself that you are no longer worried or concerned about the situation.  Remove the emotion attached to fear and you start to remove the fear itself.

Control Your Imagination
An uncontrolled imagination can allow fear to run rampant.  Those who misuse their imagination suffer much more anxiety than those who project positively.
Start by closing your eyes and slowing breathing in deeply, holding it for as long as possible then exhaling. Repeat this for about 90 seconds and you’ll start to calm down.  Doing this regularly will recondition your mind to feel calmer and more upbeat.

Use Affirmations
There’s an expression, “Fake it ‘till you Make it.”  Use the way you talk to yourself to do exactly that. If you speak it long enough, you’ll start to believe it. Make only confident positive statements. You can start with the following:

I welcome positive change in my life.
I always make good decisions.
I am a fearless, confident and capable human being.
I know that I can change my life for the better.

Change Your Fear Expectations.

Negative expectations are a major cause of fear. Do you always expect the worst case scenario’s? Worrying about what could go wrong and expecting the worst from every situation takes your focus away from your strengths and capabilities?
Make an effort to see the positive side of every situation.

Get Busy and Take Action.
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”
Dale Carnegie
The best way to eliminate fear and build self confidence is taking action. The first time is always the hardest, and after you do it once, each time after that become easier. If you weigh the pros and cons, you may decide that the negative consequences of fear are very minimal.
