Some choose to face their fears by helping them not be afraid. I knew someone who was afraid of horses, so he chose to take horse lessons. I have a fear of being on a motorcycle bc of all the people I know who die on them. But, I decided I needed to get on one and "live a little." :) Face them..head on. :)
"Great Failures of the Extremely Sucessful" by Steve Young is a great book to help ease anxiety. It's a book explaining how many well-known successful people got to where they are today. It talks about how failure is not a thing to be feared, but a neccesity for success. This book inspires people to power through adversity and not to give up or let fears get in the way of achieving their goals. It's a great read. I'd recommend reading it before bed. Makes for a good night sleep.
be around people who tell you that "you can do it, no matter what" , and not around people who bring your limitations forward. and if people think you cannot do something, work your a$$ off and prove them wrong
Search for the One who can take away all your fears. There is One, and he said search for me and you will find me. . And I think that is the the biggest fear,because you haven't found Him yet..... Find Him and he will answer all your questions . . . . . . .
Laugh at it and make it fell pathetic and weak. :D i mean the fear. Look at yourself in a mirror and talk to your shadow self as if it was your Fears. Laughing is contagious and healthy. it boost confidence like no others.
The best way to overcome fear, is to put your mind to your goal. Convince yourself that you can do anything you want to, as long as you believe in yourself. That whole 'Pretend everyone is in their underwear' thing, never works. Just remember, practice makes perfect, and nobody's perfect, so don't set your expectations to high. But good luck for whatever you're doing.
Patience and acceptance. Accept your fear to the best of your ability and accept that you will always have fear to the day you die. Be patient with fear and love and try to have a balance that works best with you.
fla_angle First of All you should know what is Fear? how and when you found herslf in fear,my mean Situation. Actually Strongly belief and mind has no fear either becoms infornt of you or behind.Belive in God(ALLAH) is more than every one and will protect us all. Amen
Deep breathing, prayer, and doing things similar. Depending on the fear itself.... I would say, do it and get it over with. when you see that it doesn't hurt or that it isn't the end of the world, you might actually enjoy it :)
(Pardon if this has already been covered) What has worked for me is to explore the *source* of your fear or anxiety. Ask yourself, "What's going on here? What is making me feel this way?" Self-discovery can take many forms and you'd be amazed at the insight and growth that results! Best to you!
Fear is a part of life. If you live, you fear. Fear is one of the minds primary emotions, Fear combined with other things can create anger, depression, even happiness. To overcome fear you must understand it. And to understand fear is to understand that it will always be there. And that's a good thing believe it or not :)
I love your question! It made me smile...how do I not be afraid of overcoming fear...I relate! In the past I'm either afraid of losing what I have or not getting what I want...and it can be PARALYZING! I want you to know that you are not alone, and there is a way out. There's a blog post I wrote a while back that may be helpful to you: http://www.luckyduckliving.com/2011/11/02/from-despair-to-joy/ I hope you'll check it out, and please let me know in the comments if it was helpful, or if you have a specific fear I might have experience walking through! Hang in there! I'm in your corner, Thais Zoe Founder, LuckyDuckLiving.com
?Above all, avoid lies, all lies, especially the lie to yourself. Keep watch on your own lie and examine it every hour, every minute. And avoid contempt, both of others and of yourself: what seems bad to you in yourself is purified by the very fact that you have noticed it in yourself. And avoid fear, though fear is simply the consequence of every lie. Never be frightened at your own faintheartedness in attaining love, and meanwhile do not even be very frightened by your own bad acts.? ? Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov
