Fear is a normal part of living
There's no one that hasn’t experienced fear. We all have it. It's a standard part of living.
And we all have two options with our fear.
We can become afraid of our fear, we can avoid it.
We can say to ourselves that I'm not going to do anything that allows me to experience the fear.
But this is the worst route to take as this is where our comfort zone shrinks.
This is a gateway to more anxiety, more depression and to a lower self-worth because we don't overcome the things that we're afraid of.
Think of fear as like a wall between you and the things that you want.
A lot of people see that barrier and they say, well, I won't do that because I'm afraid of it. And they use fear as decision-making criteria.
Anything that I'm afraid of, they're the things that I won't do.
‘I'm afraid of that. So I'm going to move away’
‘I'm afraid of that. So I'm going to plan a little bit more’, which is just a fancy way of procrastinating.
