HOW TO DEAL WITH fear


fear has no substance, it's like a bubble, it has nothing it in, just hot air....... but it stops people in their tracks and slows them down when they try to achieve their goals.


fear causes you:


Anxiety

Makes you think negatively

Stops you believing in yourself and that you can achieve your goals

Makes you doubt yourself


Treat fear like that negative friend who says all the things you don't want to hear, makes you scared and makes you think about giving up on your goals.


fear is usually based on the past or the present when you can't see a way to achieve your goals...


A really powerful exercise is to write down all the goals you have ever achieved, include everything going right back to your childhood:


-First Day at School

-Passed 1st and 2nd Swimming Certificate

-Performed on Stage

-Passed Driving Test

-Buying your first car

-Passed Exams

-Got your first job

-Rented your first house

-Brought a house

Think about how you felt before you achieved these goals, I'm guessing the fear was there.... but you overcame it and went on to achieve more goals.


What did you say to yourself when you were trying to achieve your first goals....... I remember passing my 2nd swimming certificate and it was so hard....... but little me just said to myself "HAVE FAITH, HAVE FAITH, HAVE FAITH" and I passed, I must have been about 8 years old - Try motivating yourself by saying the positive things you said to yourself as a child - there is something in that because there is a younger self in all of us and using these motivating words will help them to feel safe and you can then relax and get on with achieving your goals.


WRITE THAT LIST AND TAKE IT OUT WHENEVER YOU FEEL FEAR OR ANXIETY ABOUT ACHIEVING YOUR GOALS, READ THE LIST OUT LOUD AND YOU WILL SEE THAT THE FEAR WILL GO AWAY!!!



Don't let fear stop you from getting to the top!!!
