The face of fear is you.
Only you can stand in your way of greatness. Fear cannot control you unless you let it. Now you may ask yourself, how can that be? Well, fear is a choice and the only way to overcome the fear that you have, is to choose not be fearful.
But how can you do that?
Sadly, it is not as easy as waking up one day and willing yourself to do so. The only way you can overcome fear is by showing up every day ready to tackle it head on! This is truly the only way to remove fear from your life. You have to, literally and figuratively, stand up to fear.
So if you want to overcome fear of public speaking, practice speaking in front of people. Start with a small audience and work your way up. If you want to overcome your fear of failure, keep trying because by trying you are proving to yourself that failure will not stop you from achieving your dreams.
Fear can only do but so much unless you allow it. This is not saying you won’t have your bad days where you give in to your fears, but the fact that you keep showing up is what will eventually eliminate them all together.
By showing up every day, even when you don’t want to, you are training your brain to become stronger than the fearful thoughts that you have.
Make being fearless a lifestyle; a part of your every day routine to be bold, to be brave, to punch the fears that you have in the face, and tell them to move out of your way.
Only you have the power to do this. Fear is only as strong as you make it.
So how strong do you want to make your fears?
Below, I want you to say the following fear busting affirmations every day for the next 10 days so that you can begin the process of training your brain to eliminate fear from your life once and for all. You can say these affirmations in your mind or out loud.
