1. Fear Feeds on Inaction.
When I was suffering from depression Fear took over me. I felt like nothing and I just wanted to stay in bed all day. After going months like this, I realized how much time was passing by and nothing was getting accomplished. I was sick of being depressed. So I got up. I created things to do for myself. From doing housework, to running errands to joining a book club, I needed to do something, anything to get me going. Fear thrives on inaction. As soon as I started doing what makes me happy, fear no longer controlled me.
2. Fear Feeds On Indecision
Let go of the belief that you can’t make a choice until you are certain of the outcome. Even if you have all of your “ducks in a row” things are still going to happen that are out of your control. Learn how to rise to the occasion and go forth anyway. Mastering indecision takes time, but with dedication you will be able to kill the fear of everything needing to be perfect.
3. Fear Feeds On The Unknown.
The fear of failing has plagued me for years. I would be so scared to even try to accomplish my goals because deep down inside there was this fear of failure or not being accepted. Life is all about the unknown. You wake up, do what you can, and move on to the next day. That’s how you can overcome the fear of what lies ahead. Just keep moving and doing what’s best for you.
4. Fear Feeds on Feelings of Unworthiness
Imagine the very best thing that could happen and how you would feel if it did happen. You will begin to think about how scary change could be and then start to doubt if you’re even worthy of such a blessing. To remove this fear, speak positivity into your life. Don’t let thoughts of being inadequate overtake your mind. Write down a list of goals you want to accomplish and begin to tackle them one by one, praising yourself at the end of each goal.
5. Fear Feeds on Feelings of Impossibility
Start saying “Anything is possible” instead of “This is not possible”. Speak positivity into your life even if you don’t initially believe it. The more positivity you bring into your life, the more doors will open up for you, and the happier you’ll be.
6. Fear Feeds On Negativity.
Say “I Can.” Instead of “I can’t.” most importantly, pay attention to the company you keep around you. We all need people who will inspire, motivate and encourage us to be our best selves. Negativity is not just in the words you speak out of your mouth, it’s also about the energy you have around you. Positivity is the key to happiness.
7. Fear Feeds on Lies.
Look for the truth within yourself instead of the lies people try to place on you. You are never your circumstance. It doesn’t matter what your going through, you can learn to be the best version of yourself through self-love.
8. Fear Feeds on Suffocation
The feeling of suffocation can come from being burdened with responsibilities. Its important to challenge yourself to step away from everyday life and explore new things, people and places.
9. Fear Feeds on Perfectionism.
Embrace mistakes instead of pretending you won’t make any. There isn’t a single person walking this earth who hasn’t made a mistake. Not one. It’s okay to fail, just as long as you get back up and try again.
10. Fear Feeds on Waiting for The Right Time.
News flash, it’ll never be the right time. Life is about the unexpected. Waiting for the right time to start on a goal will eventually lead to doubt, which ends in fear. Learn to jump into your goals and attack them head on.
