"Inaction breeds doubt and fear, Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit somewhere and think about it, go out and get busy"
Without a doubt, fear has been one of the greatest form of human weakness. It weakens every part of the human soul, and worst of all, it proves to be an hindrance to success.
To succeed in life, it is one thing to not give in to failures, or I should say to not break down due to experiences of failure, but it is also another thing to realise that anxiety and fear are two hindrances to success, guess what, they are frequently berated and underestimated.
People don't really see them as stumbling blocks, and they are. Of course, you can't expect to have a pleasant ride, but what happens when you were literally expecting failure as the challenge, but fear and anxiety show up. It can be tricky, and if care isn't taken intimidating as well.
Without mincing words, fear is an unpleasant feeling triggered by the perception of danger, real or imagined.
It is a mutual feeling common among humans. We tend to have the fear of the unknown, the fear of failure, the fear of living a purposeful life, and even the fear of making impacts.
We mostly ask ourselves questions like... "What if I don't make it to the top?" "What if my application letter got rejected?" "What if I don't pass this examination?" A real lot of questions like this has led people to the FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN.
However, if one's fear is not properly looked into and corrected, it might lead to dangers, reason being that fear is a false experience appearing real. Of course it's Apparent!!
Moreover, I've been a victim of fear in diverse areas of my life. Fear of failure was my main classification of fear. I feared failure to the extent of not wanting to take risks at all but all these happened before I learned to face my fears in whatever situation I find myself.
Yes! I learnt to face my FEARS!
Facing your fears is the best way to come out of your fears. You might be wondering... "How do I face my fears?" "How do I look at my fears directly and tell it.. Hey you, I'm gonna face you today..?"
Before you can tactfully overcome and conquer fear and anxiety, you have to first muster the courage to face your fears.
You're not going to do either of this. Instead, you're going to do what you feared doing. I know right..
A friend once asked me, "what would you do if you were not afraid?"... I never gave him a direct answer but in my heart, I there are many things I'd have done if I wasn't afraid.
While writing this article, I asked myself again... "What would you do if you were not afraid?"
Then I told myself, DO IT! If I can, then you can too.
Do what you'd do if you were not afraid. Assume you're not afraid and DO IT!
Yes you can! You can pass that interview, you can fix that thing. All you need is a positive and strong mindset.
I hope you got value. Don't forget to ask yourself this simple question...
"What would I do if I wasn't afraid..?"
Cheers to your success and development.
