Do you want to use fear to empower you?
“Fear does not shut you down, it wakes you up.” – Veronica Roth
The one thing that cripples more people is fear. The fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of the unknown… It is the fear that things won’t work out and we will be worse off that stops most people in their tracks.
What some of us don’t realise is that fear is merely an emotion. An intense emotion, yes, but an emotion nonetheless. And all emotions are good if we heed the message that they are trying to tell us. The action signal that fear is giving us is to prepare for something. Remember a few days before your big exams, the feeling of fear would rear its ugly head. That’s a good thing. That feeling of fear is telling you to prepare for the exams coming up. To sit down and study. When it comes close to the end of the tax year and fear appears again, it’s a good thing. It’s telling you to prepare for your financials.
The problem is that most people sit in the fear and let it cripple them. They don’t use it as an action signal or a drive to move forward… and that is when fear takes over and stops you in your track. Remember, fear is an action signal here to help you through and keep you aware of what is important. Don’t brush it off. As the famous self-help book says, “Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway.”
Fear is nothing more than just an emotion… use it as an action signal and triumph on your dreams. For more similar videos go to www.laurensboel.com.
