Face your fears and conquer them. Sometimes fear can come from thoughts, beliefs and imaginary threats that our minds create.
“The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” – Nelson Mandela.
Whether you’re facing a situation in your life that could actually harm you. Or even if fear is simply holding you back from doing something you’d like to do. There are ways you can conquer your fear.
“One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.” – Henry Ford.
What technique you use to conquer your fear, will depend on the thing or the situation that you’re afraid of, and how you want to focus on facing your fear.
Try doing something you’re afraid of is often the best way to conquer your fear. Face it head-on, and don’t run away. The goal is to help you see that fear is just a feeling, and that it really can’t harm you.
“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” – Dale Carnegie.
Facing fear can also empower you and help you feel stronger and braver overall, so you can get past additional fears you might have, or feel better when you’re placed in a stressful situation you haven’t even thought about yet.
Remember to Face your fears as if your life depends on it, because living in fear keeps you from living.
