Overcoming Fear

How would you answer the question: “Are you successful in life?” I know many people who would say that they are not successful; at least they have not reached success in the areas that feel important to them. If you want to be truly successful in life (and who doesn’t?) then first of all you have to learn to believe in yourself. If you do not think that you can be successful, then who will? Life success does not mean that you will not fail but it means that your mistakes will teach you something and show you a better way to get what you want.

Here are few steps which will enable you to overcome fear and achieve success if you practice them:

  • Write down what you fear – It’s really important to understand what success really means to you. Grab a sheet of paper or a notebook and start writing. It might be tough to know specifically what success really means to you, but doing this will help you understand exactly what it is that you’re fearful of.
  • Remind yourself that success is awesome – Instead of fearing success, be very open to the good feelings that will follow if you reach success and achieve your goals.
  • Plan & map our your path to success – In order to achieve your goals, it’s always important to plan out what you need to do. if your goals are big, it’s best to break it down to an easy actionable step. The best way to approach big goals is to break it down and map it out. Breaking down is crucial to your goals because your goals might be so big that you might not even know where or how to start working on them.
  • Be disciplined & keep pushing yourself forward – When the fear of success come to stop you in your path to reach your goals, keep pushing forward. Most people usually stop when they start to feel fear and the longer they stop, the more stuck they get. It’s always important to keep moving. If you refuse to move and overcome your fear of success, you really will be stuck in the same place as you are in now.
  • Use you fear for growth opportunity – Fear is always going to be part of our life. We should all do things because it scares us the most. You should always seek out challenges and just overcome them. When you face your fears with a purpose, it makes you a lot stringer and puts you in control of your fear.

    Brilliant post. Coming from someone who lives with anxiety, facing fear is an almost everyday thing. Especially writing down your fear can help, then you can see how rational or irrational it is and go from there. Also it feels like once it’s on paper it doesn’t have as much power over you x

      If your fears are debilitating, you aren’t having much success facing them on your own, or your fear may is related to a specific health condition, like an eating disorder, social anxiety disorder, or PTSD, you can seek the help of a trusted mental health professional. If you have a specific phobia, which is a persistent, diagnosable anxiety disorder, you may not feel prepared to conquer your fears on your own.

      A cognitive behavioral therapist can help desensitize you to your fears one small step at a time. Most mental health professionals are comfortable treating a variety of fears and phobias ranging from the fear of public speaking to arachnophobia.

        Of course, thank you 🙂 I have received help through therapy and take daily medicine to help take the edge off. While they are no miracle cure they have helped me acquire the tools I need to face fears head on 🙂

        Yes what helps me refocus is journal writing. Sometimes when I go back on what I write, I laugh 😬

    The first time doing something is always scary, because we don’t know what’s going to happen, but every time you beat back those fears, it gets a bit easier
