Hello, I want to talk to you about ways to Confront and Overcome Fear.
Fear is an emotion and I find myself suffering with it all the time. There’s probably nothing more crippling to ourselves and the people we connect with. In most cases, fear is the very bondage that keeps us stuck doing what we’re doing even though we hate it. It’s something that can appear in an instant without even knowing where it came from, and disappear just as fast, we just need to know how to handle it.
Here are some ideas to help you handle fear:
Take everything as a lesson.
No matter what happens, it always better prepares you for what’s next. With this mindset, ultimate failure is impossible.
Find people who have successfully done it before.
It’s likely that you’re not alone in your quest. Understand what others went through and how to approach the fears that are going to come up. No fear is worse than the fear of the unknown. Find out what’s coming.
Purposely go out and experience failure.
Instead of avoiding it, seek it out. Get turned down. Start getting some “no’s.” Go experience what causes you to be scared.
Set real expectations.
Often things take longer than expected. Don’t take it too hard if you experience delays.
Become an expert.
Study up. Learn everything you can about what scares you. Lack of preparation is a leading cause of failure. It’s also completely in your control.
Understand what you truly stand to gain from your Success.
If your reasons for accomplishing something are compelling enough, nothing can stop you. Find the right reasons for you.
Realize what you have to lose if you don’t go after what you care about.
Understand your worst-case scenario.
It’s never as bad as you think. Often, it’s a lot closer to your current situation than most realize.
Collaborate and get a support team.
Don’t work on things all alone. Bring on a partner or teammate with similar expertise and similar goals who can support you, trade ideas, and keep you accountable. They can make the lows not quite as low and highs even higher.
Learn to see opportunity.
Many of us are hardwired to see what makes a situation brutal, but you can train yourself to see the Positive. Make a habit of listing all the opportunities situations create.
