This is kind of a part 2 to a previous post from this year, where I spoke in detail about fear being your prison, and how, if it's not used properly, it can ruin your life. Today, I want to briefly touch on the good side of fear, the one that can put you on the path to victory.
Fear gets a really bad rap,
pretty much daily. We're basically taught that it's our enemy, and it
causes us a whole lot of pain and suffering. This is only true if you
fail to see its benefit and don't learn how to use it to your advantage
every chance you get.
Your fears are actually really important—catalytic, even. They're not meant to be
ignored or avoided. In order to transform your problems, you need to
allow yourself to fully acknowledge, embrace, and clarify your fears
about them, because your transformative moves will be contingent on that
detailed information. Once you're clear about your deepest fears,
you'll be in a perfect position to take courageous actions that directly
oppose them, ones that will initiate healthy resolutions, instead of
ones that will compound your issues via knee-jerk reactions based on
panic and confusion. Clarity is the first step in all transformation and
resolution. Without it, you will be constantly fighting an uphill
battle in your efforts to bring your challenges to a speedy close.
you're afraid of in your daily challenges, let that fear (or those
multiple fears) be your friend, your guiding light to the other side, as
you use them as tools to supply you with the insight on what kind of
bravery or proactive moves you need to incorporate into your scenarios
that will not only get you the proper solution, but also solidify your
self-esteem in the process, as courageous and wise actions always do.
