Fears erode our confidence level. They become mental blocks and very difficult to overcome in certain scenarios. How can we overcome our fears to live better lives for ourselves?
Upon ice skating I’ve come to the conclusion that those that develop a fear of falling become limited as they navigate their way around the rink. Their confidence level dwindles upon each glide as if fear itself is in control. The fear of falling, getting hurt, or humiliation are all aspects associated. However, it’s really your own perception that creates fear. It’s all in your head, a mental block. It’s not that you can’t skate, you just have to let go of your fear of doing so. And when you do, your confidence soars.
If you go through life in fear, you’ll never capitalize on opportunities. You’ll be hindered on your potential and it’ll have a direct influence on the outcome. You can’t go through life being afraid of something that may or may not happen. The more you focus on your fears and potential mishaps ahead, you run a greater risk of actually not succeeding. We can hide behind fears or we can work to overcome them. Gain new confidence, gain new strength, and move mountains once again. It’s okay to fear unknowns associated, however, don’t let fear define you. You define fear. Never back down and never hide. For every punch you get hit with, fight back. Look your challenger in the eye and regain control. This is about you. This is your life, live how you want to live. But leave the fear behind.
Conquer your fears and “keep those feet moving.”
