“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
Fear is a common denominator in our lives. It is a current of thought energy that, if allowed, can keep us imprisoned in a useless place of comfort and predictability.
Using fear as a point of reference, we could say there are two types of people:
Type One are those who are controlled and consumed by their fears.
Type Two are those who choose to embrace them, make friends with them and harness their energy to fuel their dreams.
The difference between them is that Type One will surely live an incomplete life of guilt and unhappiness, while Type Two will most likely come out the other side stronger, smarter, wiser and on their way to success.
We all experience fear. It can paralyze us or bring the best out of us, and we’re not talking about danger here; the danger is very real, while fear is only the product of our interpretation of a certain event in our lives.
It is said that the word FEAR stands for Fantasized Experiences Appearing Real (it’s also said that it stands for F*** Everything And Run, but let’s stick to the first one); whatever you may call it, you can use it to remember what’s important to us, and fuel your success.
For the following 3 articles, we’ll be covering three practical ways to look at fear:
- Fear is excitement in disguise
- It shouldn’t paralyze you but energize you
- It is a great motivator for personal growth
Quoting Eleanor Roosevelt again, you gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this. I can take the next thing that comes along…
Looking forward to our next delivery.
In the meantime, stay strong!
