I have read a lot about people who lost all they ever had just because they were scared of what would happen if they made “the” move. Believe me when I say, they lost a whooping lot. Some were too broke to even pick up themselves from where they fell from. As a matter of concern, many people live “practically” in fear every single day of their lives. You hear people say things like “I don’t know what will happen if I do it, I’m too scared to move on with it” and believe me, it’s completely normal to be scared of something you have never experienced before. But sometimes, the biggest mistake you will ever make in life is somehow, embedded in the risks you refused to take and the biggest breakthroughs have come from taking risks. There’s this saying in business, “NO RISK, NO PROFIT” and I can boldly say that no saying can be more true than this.
I have been scared of a number of things in my life but I have regretted cowering before those fears more than I regret being encumbered by them. Somehow, with a lot of reading and observation, I have come to realize that within those fears we experience, are the greatest opportunities you could ever imagine! FEAR DOESN’T ALWAYS TAKE YOU FAR FROM TROUBLE, I TAKES YOU CLOSER TO FAILURE!
Inasmuch as I believe that sometimes, our fears keep us alive but I will not fail to acknowledge the dire consequences of living IN that fear day in, day out.
The major problem with people (which is a completely understandable and natural one) is that once fear creeps in, they seem to all of a sudden, lose their ability to make concise and logical decisions which usually end up bad for such people.
I’m not going to give any steps to overcoming fear or judge anyone who has been a victim of fear simply because I believe in our inner ability to overcome ANYTHING that may challenge us as humans.
However, one advice I’m going to give to everyone who is currently a victim of fear or will be, is to remain “CALM” and don’t get overridden by fear. Once you are able to accomplish this, every other thing will become easy to handle. When I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING! This is so because thinking will become easy and you will be able to navigate yourself out of whatever might be plaguing you at that point in time, if only you believe in your ability to do so.
Fear can hold you back from making any form of substantial progress in life but only if you allow it to.
So, the next time you get very scared or anxious about something, just take a deep breath and remain calm. You’ll just find yourself JUMPING into your fears and RIDING IT TO SUCCESS!
