We live in a world where the fearless rule & reign whilst the fearful live as slaves. Fear has dominated in many people’s lives which has led to failure, death, poverty, hate, the list goes on.
Before we get in depth with this, let’s understand what fear is. Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm. Fear relates to worry, angst, unease, anxiety, agitation, panic, timidity or nervousness. We were all victims of fear at some point and we all know the pain that we went through at that point.
Most fear is just bad management of our own mental faculties. The man who will conquer in today’s world is one who is not afraid; if you will not fear you will conquer and create a great lifestyle for yourself. Fear robs your God-given blessings and channels you to make wrong decisions that create an unpleasant living.
So how do you overcome fear?
Don’t accept it. Fear is a spirit that only has one agenda, destruction. When you refuse to be afraid you will live in a real of possibilities and endless opportunities. Fear has a platform that holds it up, and the platform for fear is selfishness.
Stop being selfish. Selfishness creates more room for fear and in most cases selfish people are often victims of the results of fear. When you are selfish, you are always afraid and worried. A selfish person always hurts the people around them mostly close ones, doings things to satisfy themselves regardless of its impact on other people. Selfishness creates lots of conflicts and in the end leaves you with no friends around you. If you are this person, break the habit; put your needs last and always put yourself in other people’s shoes. Get off your high horse and look at the worry, pain, loss that was created by your selfishness.
Manage your anger. The long term physical effects of uncontrolled anger include increased anxiety, high blood pressure and headaches. Anger is a positive and useful emotion, if it is expressed appropriately. Anger prevents logical thinking, usually decisions made in anger are made in haste, and don’t hold up well to the light of the day. You will almost always regret things said or done in anger. Too much anger can also be literally bad for your health. Anger leads to hate and hate leads to suffering. When you manage your anger, you can use it as a motivating force to overcome fear. You can create and focus on goals and work on them to avoid facing the situations of being angry. Constructive anger can make you feel strong and powerful and helps to push you on to get what you want.
Learn to see challenges, change, and outcome as something spicy in our lives. The grass is not always greener; learn to accept the circumstances when you face them. Take time to make decisions, don’t rush to make decisions and choices out of anger or in pain, relax and take deep breaths to calm yourself down. Exercise making decisions slowly, exercise doing the impossible when everyone says don’t do it. Exercise listening to your own gut. Sometimes you have to be a fool when everyone else is laughing at you. Learn to listen to the inner voice than the voices outside. Have faith in yourself more than anyone else; believe that you are the best in all that you do, believe that you can be more than what you have been demonstrating.
Fear is a thief, and it can only steal from you when you allow it. You are worth more than you think, live to bring the change you desire.
