How do you deal with your fears? Are you willing to face them and learn how to live fearlessly?
According to a research from Business Enterprises (a group of coaches that help people thrive in their vocational pursuits), the four FEARS that hold us back, avoiding us to succeed, are: - the fear of failure, the fear of blame, the fear of harm, and the fear of not being liked.
When we accept that protecting ourselves from harm will also protect us from opportunities, we stop declining opportunities that we are perfectly ready to take on!
Carl Jung said: “Nothing has a stronger influence psychologically on their environment and especially on their children then the unlived life of the parent.”
Yes, we were raised by parents that might expect us to be what THEY want, and we respect them because they are our base, our family, our strength. But are we in our own path, doing what our hearts feel passionate about, or we are just following what our parents and the society imposed to us?
According to Dr. Ivan Kos (Head of Radiological Laboratory at Institute of Hygiene and Medical Ecology, Academy of Medical Science of Ukraine, Ukraine), "Newborn babies have only two fears: of loud noises and falling. These are normal, and considered alarm system given by nature as a means of self-preservation. All other fears are abnormal, caused by particular experiences, or passed on by parents, and others who influence us as we grow up."
Traumatic incidents in life are the top responsible for fear, but many "victim" words that should be avoided in our thoughts, are usually and unconsciously holding us back, as "what if", or the expression "woulda coulda shoulda".
How to overcome your fears?
First, be aware that NOW is all you have, and even though decisions in the present affect your future, you never really have to say "forever" about anything, because you don't actually know what will happen in the future.
Take AWAY the pressure that freaks you out, and ENJOY your present!!!
And, remember:“Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone…”
