Conquering Your Fears

Fear is very powerful. It affects everyone from time to time. Doesn’t matter who you are or where you come from, even if you are the most successful person on this planet.

Fear can be both good and bad.

It can be good in the sense that sometimes it allows us to escape from harm.

On the other hand, fear can be bad for us in the sense that it may prevent us from pursuing what we truly desire in life.

Some examples of this include: talking to an attractive woman for the first time, starting a new business, climbing a mountain, and so on and so forth.

Getting over our fears is necessary in order to pursue the things we want to accomplish in our lives.

The way a person engages fear determines how successful that person can be throughout their life.

If a person let’s fear take over when he wants to pursue a beneficial opportunity, he will be unable to even start his pursuit.

However, if a person faces her fear and pushes through it, this fear will start to become less and less powerful.

She will be considered a courageous person and will naturally increase the amount of self-confidence and success in her life.

Fear of failure is the one of the most common fears we face from day to day, but exercising courage can help us to break down this fear.

Lesson #2:

Find something you truly want to accomplish in your life right now, something that you are afraid to do, but if you are successful, will be able to reap many personal and maybe even financial rewards.

Pursue this opportunity, despite the fear you feel and put it in the back of your mind that you don’t care about being successful in the short term, because you are just gaining experience in this field.

This will take off a lot of pressure from your mind and will allow you to enjoy the experience, while building your skill set, increasing your chances of becoming successful in the future.

Also, if whatever you want to pursue requires financial stability and/or more preparation, then by all means take care of that first.

Otherwise, you will have a bad start and might even be worse off than before. Strike a balance between preparation and pursuing the opportunity in order to become successful later down the road.

I hope you all enjoyed today’s post and hope you will join me on the journey to self-confidence mastery!

Cheers!

  1. Steve, your lessons are simple, but not ‘easy’ — and powerful!

    In this one, I found this statement especially resonated: “Put it in the back of your mind that you don’t care about being successful in the short term, because you are just gaining experience in this field.” I think when we can do that — forget about ‘measurable success’ in the short term, we can focus on learning, growing, mastering and enjoying! All great athletes know this. How much can our confidence increase if we take that same attitude day-to-day? Thank you for the insights!

    • Thank you, Janice! I always love hearing your feedback! I’m glad you’re enjoying the “life lessons” portion of each of my blog posts!! Our confidence can potentially skyrocket once we gain experience in something just for the sake of experiencing it, look back at our “old” self, and see the positive changes within ourselves.
