Have you ever wanted something so badly but just couldn’t bring yourself to take the leap and just “go for it”. You feel anxious; your hands start to get sweaty just at the mere thought of moving forward. I get it. I have been there. I think it is safe to say we all have. What if you just let go? Try asking yourself, “what is the worst thing that could happen?” I want you to just sit with that for a moment.
Fear can be our worst enemy if we allow it. Fear can take a hold of you in so many areas of your life and keep you from living the life you are intended to live and love. But I believe in you and I believe you can eliminate that fear and get the start you need to living your best life and finding that Dream 4 you.
While it may not be easy let’s start with these 4 helpful tips to start removing some of that fear from your life.
I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments section on what are some of your fears and how you have overcome them in the past.
4 Fear Eliminators – Moving You from Limited to Limitless!
1. Get rid of those “what ifs,”“should dos,” and “what might happens.”
These paralyzing thought obstacles can hinder you from living in the present moment and thus prevent you from seeing the opportunities and possibilities that are right in front of you at any given moment. Often times they can be reduced, if not removed, by simply asking yourself the question:“What is my fear, and how real is my fear?” or “How important is it?”What you will find is that most of the time, it isn’t very real or important. Our imaginations just like to create these life blocking stories.
2. Do something spontaneous from time to time.
Being more spontaneous keeps us in the present moment and more aware of the beauty that is all around us. And because we are thinking and acting with our intuition, there is very little space for limited thinking.
The key to being more spontaneous is to not overthink or overanalyze—that only leads to paralysis of the mind. Just trust and have faith that everything will work out just as it is supposed to work out to get you to where you need to be!
3. Take a pause occasionally.
Many of us put unnecessary pressure and time constraints on ourselves to act quickly or do too much. This unsettles us and prevents us from recognizing the choices we have. Pausing, whether to refocus, meditate, or simply to reflect, helps keep you grounded and opens your mind to clearer thinking.
4. Let go of control.
Most limited thinking is “controlled” thinking that comes from our false assumptions (and expecting) that events will unfold in a set, linear fashion, particularly if we plan well.
We tend to worry and become fearful of the unknown if we allow events to proceed in their natural course. Ultimately, we become resistant to considering other alternatives or anything new. In so doing, however, we fail to account for life’s constant shifts and ever changing patterns.
