Fear is a wall that your mind creates to block your passage. There are only two choices that you’ll ever be faced with in life. You can see fear for what it is and break through the wall to greatness or you can let it trap you and fall behind in life.
There is a great quote from Tony Robbins I’d like to share with you now.
“People will do more to avoid pain, than they will do to gain pleasure” – Tony Robbins
The fact that this is true is the very reason we’ve built this website and share our thoughts with people, because it’s insane to me that this is real.
The truth is that unless you feel pain at this very moment, then the true denominator is fear, fear of pain, fear of loss, fear of life.
Now the problem with fear is that it touches everything in your life, it can cause trouble in your career or business. It can stop you from traveling and seeing the world. It can even stop you from being healthy. You might say that I sound crazy when I say that, but it’s true. Why do you think there are so many fat people today on earth? Subconsciously they are living in fear of changing their diet, they have a fear of loss, a fear of change. They don’t want to lose the feeling they get when they eat the chocolate.
With all that being said I’d like to share another quote from Tony Robbins.
“The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t, life controls you.” – Tony Robbins
So how do you learn to control your fear? It’s actually very simple after you understand that fear comes from within you.
Fear stands forFalseEvidenceAppearingReal
Any fear you have is not real, it is created from your perception of reality and if you’ve created this fear, you can just as easily destroy it. I may make this sound a little bit too easy to be true, however it really is easy and all it takes is baby steps. Like everything else in life, take things one step at a time and you will learn to remove fear from your life and stop it from holding you back.
Do small things that scare you, until eventually they won’t scare you anymore, then do bigger things that scare you, until you’ve realized that most of your fears are fake and you’ll be able to abolish them yourself.
I remember as a child I grew up with many fears that used to hold me back and today looking back I realize how much pain it caused me to have these fears and it caused me to miss a big part of my childhood because I wasn’t outgoing enough. I realize how irrational all those thoughts were.
I want you to give yourself the gift of life. That is the point of this article, every person on this earth deserves to live a life worth living and fear will always prevent you from achieving your goals.
I will leave you with one secret, fear will never leave you. It is human nature for us to doubt and to have fear, but by learning to control your fears. You will always be able to stop it, before it stops you.
