Fear has Meaning

We looooove fear. We have a whole holiday based around the idea of fear! Go figure!

Yet, we often hide away our fears because we don’t want anyone to know about them. Hiding our fears away gives them more power.

We can move past the fear that is holding us back.

The quote for this round –

” F.E.A.R. has two meanings – Forget Everything And Run or Face Everything And Rise. The choice is yours.” ~Unknown

Here’s the thing about fear. Fear is really there to protect us. Fear is our brain’s way of trying to keep us safe. Which makes sense when you are facing something life-threatening. But when we are trying to accomplish something in our life doesn’t help at all. While we do have a choice sometimes to us it feels to us like we really don’t. Our brain doesn’t know the difference between a life-threatening fear or another type of fear, so we have to tell it the difference.

Move ahead a space actions –

  1. Think of a fear you have that is holding you back from moving forward?
  2. Talk to the fear. Tell it, “Thanks for trying to keep me safe. I’ve got it.”
  3. Now take a step toward that thing that you fear either a big step or a little step
