Fear is a common underlying factor in almost everyone’s life. It is human nature to be afraid of failure, success, being alone, dying or change of any kind. We hold onto what we know and believe, and it is difficult to make changes.
Fear controls our actions and our lives, leaving us powerless and uncertain. It can keep us from making a clear choice of something better and moving forward.
If a person never challenges the fear, or tries to understand it, it can become paralyzing, create extreme anxiety and inability to make any choice. Fear is based on protection and survival instincts which are often outdated and no longer relevant. Fear of making the wrong choice is always a factor and again this fear is outdated and trying to keep us safe.
Eventually, life will cause something to shift and will force a choice for those who have not adjusted. It may feel uncomfortable, but this change is effortless when there is understanding. The more choices one makes the more confidence it builds because there is always something new to learn or improve.
Steps to act on understanding fear: Get unstuck from an old belief. Symptoms will get louder until we pay attention to small messages from our body. Explore options and make small changes one step at a time. Prioritize your needs before you think about your wants. Bite the bullet and do what you need to do. Drop the unnecessary stuff. Line up encouraging support before a difficult task.
Even when we must choose something crappy, it doesn’t mean forever because something different is going to come along soon and we can make another choice or go in another direction.
While our fears don’t ever go away, they don’t have to dictate our actions. We always have the power to change our minds and the freedom to choose again, and again.
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.” Marie Curie
