Overcoming fear has been on my mind lately. It’s a strong emotion, isn’t it? Letting go of fear can open up our whole lives. Relationships, finances and the vision for our life can all radically be changed when we put an end to that 4 letter word.
What is fear holding you back from?
- Finding or creating a new job you love
- Getting healthy
- Ridding yourself of negative relationships
- Starting a new hobby
- Joining a new social group
- Trying a new workout
- Starting a new relationship
- Investing in yourself or education
I asked myself: What are you afraid of? Are you afraid people will see you differently? Afraid you will fail?
I realized my fear is in this blog. What if no one likes me? Can I really be consistent with it? What if it fails to take off?
Coming to the realization showed me I was not working as hard as I could on the blog or my fitness business. I am now overcoming fear and have the goal to stop my negative thinking.
6 Tips to Letting Go of Fear
These 6 tips offer me peace and help motivate me to push past my comfort zone to my goals. I hope they help you as well!
1. Prayer Time
Taking time each day to spend with God and His Word gives me a peace unlike anything else.
Getting my goals out of my head and on paper gives me a guide. My planner actually has a place to brainstorm your goals and set realistic timelines. It also has a place to review how you did each month which I love. You can see all about it here.
A planner lets me take baby steps to overcoming a fear. I hate public speaking so practicing at Toastmasters or on a Youtube Video vs speaking live in front of people helps me build up my confidence.
4. Educate Yourself on Whatever Scares You
I was so confused and intimidated about budgeting and saving money. With jsut one or two books, I felt more empowered and able to take action to invest my money.
5. Keep In Touch with Supportive Friends
Often times we are our own worst enemy. Your friends can help you refocus and see all of the strength you have inside you.
Don’t have any people like that in your life? Find some! Even if it is an online group or motivational speakers, you need positive people in your life.
6. Figure out what you really want in a world.
Two of my favorite books talk about living life to the fullest. Below are affiliate links to both books.
