I think we all have fears that hold us back from pursuing what we want or desire in life. We have the fear that if we go for something, change something or try something new the outcome of that might be disastrous. We fear loss, we fear judgment and we fear pain. We all know that if we want to improve our lives we need to let go of the fear that is keeping us away from making those changes.
Do you have fears that are keeping you back from making positives and healthy changes in your life? If so, today is the day to sit down and say, what do I really want in my life and what is keeping me from progressing or even just making the first step of change? Explore those questions and see what is holding you back. Once you identify the fears, you need to flip them around and focus on the gains, joys and positive outcomes that can come from the change. Most of our fears are nothing but negative contemplative thoughts that we make up in our minds. It’s ok to have fears and they are completely normal, you just need to focus your attention not on the fear of what might happen, but the positive outcomes of what will happen. Your mind shouldn’t be saying – I can’t because…but it should be saying – I will because…
I definitely have fears that hold me back at times, but I do feel like I am better able to control the the negative fear talk that goes on in my mind. I’m SOOOO proud of who I am today and I don’t let those fears overcome my thoughts. I use to be consumed in the fear of judgement from others. The fear of being afraid of what others thought held me back from many things in life and they took me down paths of unhealthy behaviors. I thought I wasn’t good enough, skinny enough or pretty enough, so I went to the extreme to “try” and be that. I let those fears control my thoughts. If you let negative fears run your thoughts, they will eventually become your daily thoughts and truth in your mind. Even though I was and am good enough, I didn’t feel that way because those fears of judgement had become my daily thoughts. Sad, isn’t it?
I don’t feel like I am alone when it come to the fear of judgement and fear of not being enough in others eyes. This fear will do nothing but bring you down and keep you from reaching your full potential of who you really are, which is a beautiful and strong person who IS enough and capable of doing great things.
It’s time to make an action plan to LET GO OF FEAR! Take 10 minutes alone and think about all of the fears you have in your life right now that are keeping you from starting something, progressing in something or bringing you down. Write all of these fear down and ask yourself are these making me a better person, am I accomplishing the things I want in life when I focus on these fears, do these fears make me more confident or produce negative thoughts, are these fears keeping me from starting something I’ve desired to do?
Now is the time to make a change
Now is the time to be a better you
Now is the time to eliminate any negative fears
that are holding you back from become a
happier and healthier you!
