I encourage you to feel the fear and do it anyway.

If you’re afraid of something, you’re not alone. Everyone is fearful of something.

Unfortunately, we live in a fear-driven society where we are bombarded by messages telling us that the world is a dangerous place.

As a result, we become paralyzed by fear and fail to take action.

Are you ready to discover how you can conquer fear and realize your true potential in life?

Fear can be a crippling emotion.

When I was young, I lived in a state of constant fear. I didn’t feel like I had control over anything in my life. It wasn’t until I started getting intimate with my fears, that I soon realized how I could overcome them. I learned that fear could be my ally instead of my enemy.

In many ways, fear is a good thing. For thousands of years, it has served as a survival mechanism, keeping us safe from danger. Unfortunately, many of the fears that people experience today are irrational. As an acronym, F.E.A.R. stands for false evidence appearing real.

Fear is something that your mind fabricates, which leads you to assume that it must be real. In turn, you hold yourself back from doing the things that you want to do. Fear is merely the anticipation of pain. Your brain wants to keep you in your comfort zone, so as to protect you from potential harm. A comfort zone is a safe place to be but nothing ever grows there.

To make sense of all of this, it’s important to understand that your perception of the world is created by your mind. Alfred Korzybski beautifully illustrated the difference between belief and reality when he said, “The map is not the territory meaning that reality exists outside our mind. However, we can construct models of this ‘territory’ based on what we glimpse through our senses.

You have a life blueprint, otherwise known as your model of the world.

This is comprised of your ideas, knowledge, beliefs, values, and references. This map is your reality. However, it’s not how things are. Rather, it’s based on your interpretation of reality.

Does your model of the world serve you? Is your map getting you to where you want to go in life? If not, it’s highly likely that you’re playing it too safe. The reality is that everything that you’ve ever wanted, whether that’s an attractive body, financial abundance, or an amazing partner – is on the other side of fear.

The person who you want to become and the life that you want to create is waiting for you, but you have to be willing to take a risk and do what others won’t do. Don’t hide from fear. Rather, practice acting in spite of it. More importantly, remember that being fearless doesn’t mean that you’re not scared. It merely means that you have chosen to transform fear into courage.

Are you ready to feel the fear and do it anyway?

The longer that you wait, the bigger your fear will become. Don’t allow fear to hold you back from living life to the fullest.

Do you want to be a warning to others about how not to live or an example of what is possible? Peter McWilliams said it best – “To overcome fear, here’s all you have to do: realize the fear is there, and do the action you fear anyway.”

You can either face everything and rise or fear everything and run. The choice is yours.
