Don’t Allow Your Fears to Control Your Decisions!
Today I want to talk with you about fears. And how important it is not to allow your fear too much power above you.
In other words, when you refuse to do something because you afraid to do it – fears gradually become stronger and stronger.
And in one moment you will start to feel quite helpless to overcome them. Although it all is IN YOUR MIND, in your perception. But feels like real threat to your life.
One simple technique I would like to share with you – imagine what is the worst scenario what could happen if you would try to do what you afraid of. As we all know - unless we try, we don’t know what will be good for us and what will not give us the expected results we were hoping to get.
But when you live in this fear state, it often happens so that your fears become stronger because of.. the same fears. It is like vicious circle. You are living being afraid from your fear. And it will never be healthy for you . It will never allow experience freedom for you.
Try this technique: just imagine what is the worst thing what could happen if you would try to do you really want to experience - but because of fear you are not allowing yourself to make steps toward to that your wish, desire, dream.
I bet you will realize that NOTHING, nothing dangerous will happen to you if you will give yourself possibility to just try! Because the truth is: the reality is not so dramatic as fears make us to act and think. Again it’s all about our perception, our mindset, how we look into this world. We can look being afraid of anything and we can look with open heart looking for opportunities and possibilities which help our dreams become reality.
And it is our choice. And what we choose - is what we experience.
When we overcome this fear state, by becoming aware that we are the ones who make this decision – stop to allow fears to control our decisions – it the very one of the first steps to our inner freedom.
And each time when we can celebrate victory above our fears, our joy and our inner strength increases. And it makes us more confident about ourselves, helps to boost our confidence and self-esteem. Our perception shifts from fearful to fearless. And where courage comes, nothing can stop us!
Don’t allow Your fear dictate your decisions. Any decision which you make because of fear – will lead you deeper in powerless state, forcing you to live with victim’s mindset. Every decision you make because of fear - will take your strength off, will lower your self-esteem and how you see yourself. But your opinion about yourself it that one which matters the most. It will dictate your beliefs, your behavior, each your daily step and decisions you will be making in your life.
You are not helpless. You were helpless when you were infant, when you were child. That was moment you were fully dependent on others. But not anymore! Not now, being adult. Just become aware of it.
Your fears are not stronger than you. You are creator. And you choose the thoughts which will be the leading ones in your life. Step out of fear state. Try! And experience this endless sense of freedom what will come as a result of overcoming your fear, giving back to yourself belief in your strength.
And what you believe you are - is what you become!
