.:Changing Fear into Determination:.
I was just talking with a friend and he was telling me about how he had been feeling very anxious and nervous lately. When I asked why that was, he was able to tell me the exact reason. And this made me think…if we know what it is that is causing the fears and anxiety we have in our lives why can’t we turn that negativity around and use it for good.
In life we can use fear to drive our engines. Its about turning that fear we hold in our guts into positivity and determination. Whatever it is that you are worrying about or feel scared to do in your life take a moment to step back, notice what it is and flip the switch. Say “Hey, I CAN change. I CAN do this thing!” (whatever it is) Let that fear be your personal inspiration coach.
When you know exactly what it is your worrying about, use it to push harder in order to make change. If your scared about something it is you have to DO, think about conquering that fear. Think of how amazing it will feel when you actually do it. The more fear you conquer, the more you believe in yourself, and the more you will advance in your life.
I’ve personally have sat in front of my boss, heart pounding through my chest before bringing up a topic I thought I’d never have the guts to confront. I’ve been unhappy with my home life which caused weeks of anxiety thinking “How will I ever get out of this? How will this change ever happen?” In both situations I sat and saw the fear that was causing stress in my life and also holding me back. Instead of allowing myself to drown in that fear, I essentially smacked myself in the face, took a deep breath and overcame those issues. I felt an incredible feeling of self pride in both situations and talking to my boss about anything at all has become easier. My confidence grew, and now whenever I find myself in a rut I know I have the ability to make the necessary change. We ALL have the power to do the same.
When have you defeated your fear, and how has it made you grow as a person? ♥
