All of us taste fear from time to time. But if we allow it, it can stop us from taking the actions we must take to become the person we are meant to be. And this is not cool. Because we will never progress and grow to the next level in our lives until we learn to consistently kick fear to the curb where it belongs. Because then and only then will we rise and enter the places we are meant to walk in and occupy..
And the Good News is there is a better way. And here are 5 fear crushing tips to help you pivot so you can make big positive changes in your life.
1.Begin With Small Steps
You do not have to climb the mountain of change in one step. When a big change is staring you in the face, break it down into small steps that you can conquer one by one. Doing this will make everything seem more manageable and less scary.
2.Stop Researching And Start Doing
If you’ve done your research and are aware of what is coming, then stop searching and start taking action, trusting you will be guided to make the best decisions. You will never have all the information or know all the insider information—no one can! We can easily convince ourselves we need more information when really, we are just procrastinating taking action.
3.Have Faith In Yourself
Reflect back on your life, consider the changes you have made, and the ways in which you dealt and thrived. You’ve done tough things before; you can do it again. Have faith in yourself and face change like the stellar person you are.
4.Remember To Enjoy The Journey
When you’re facing changes, sometimes all you can see is the significant benchmarks or the finish line. Look past those, consider the space and knowledge between all of those. You will learn new things, meet new people, and grow on that journey. Take your eyes off the finish line and focus on the new journey you get to go on. Yes remember to enjoy the journey on your way to your destination..
5.Actively Work and Do Your Part
Making changes is not a passive process. You have the ability to make an effort, contribute and actively work to do your part to make the best of every situation. Making an effort, even when you are afraid of what is to come, will allow you to have a say in how things go. You owe it to yourself to live your best life.
In every great story of old, there is always a dragon or giant the hero must defeat in order to become who they are meant to become.. Likewise we will be faced with our own dragons and giants at every new level of progress in our lives.. For every new level has a new devil.. And that devils name is “fear” that sadly defeats many people.
But the Good News is your destiny and path is to find your voice, emerge from the shadows of fear and walk in the light of who you really are. For you are an overcomer destined for great things.
So next time the dragon and giant of fear knocks on your door, taunting you and breathing its fiery lies. Choose faith and courage over fear. Yes focus on the answers not the problems.. Yes focus on the light and not the dark. Yes focus on how far you have traveled already. And that if you’ve come this far, then turning back now is not an option.. So keep moving forward..
Yes always remember..
Waiting on the other side of fear is the life you were created to live, full of joy, peace and fulfillment”
