Break Through Fear
How often does fear and self-doubt hold you back? Do you find yourself avoiding something you really want to do because of fear? How would your life be different if you knew you could handle anything?
The New Year has always been a time of reflection and making resolutions. Oftentimes, fear and self-doubt get in the way of people achieving their goals. Here are some facts about fear:
• You will always have fear if you are growing and stepping out of your comfort zone.
• The only way to get rid of fear is to push through it.
• Everyone has fear.
• The real fear is that you think you won’t be able to handle whatever happens, not the thing you fear.
• Affirmations are a great tool to use for becoming more confident, trusting yourself and changing thoughts of self-doubt into empowerment.
Many people stay stuck, thinking that the fear will go away. However, it is the doing that makes it go away. We can’t wish fear away or pray it away. The only way to get rid of it is to push through it and move from pain and paralysis into trust and power, turning indecision into action.
If you knew you could handle anything that came your way would you have any fear? Of course not! What would there be to fear? It is important to develop your ability to trust yourself and believe you can handle anything that comes along.
A great affirmation to start with is “I can handle it!” Repeat that affirmation many times daily, over and over again. We fear what we think about so if your focus is on being confident and trusting, that you can handle anything, you will no longer be thinking about fear. Affirmations are positive statements that can help you believe in yourself. Use them. You will become empowered by them, turning your self-defeating inner dialogue into positive, affirming thoughts.
Trust in yourself and your ability to handle whatever comes your way; push through the fear to achieve your dreams and aspirations.
