You know, one of the worst emotions that I have ever felt (outside of depression) is fear. I absolutely feared fear, “Does that make sense?” Of course it does, and, I am almost certain that you can relate at some capacity. However, I have learned that I get to control my brain’s immediate response to any situation and I do my best to stop the stimulus that will release those chemicals that make my heart start beating uncontrollably and start racing radically.
Even the most courageous people have fears to overcome, no, really, I am talking about the superhero type of people. But like them, I have learned to do things even when I am trembling. I have made some decisions that had me sweating, but, you know what they say, “Never let’em see you sweat!” So, I put on a little extra Dry Idea (80’s product) and just do it/did it! (disclosure: I probably will be praying a whole lot as I am doing it like Nik Wallenda [acrobat, aerialist, daredevil, and high wire artist] did when he crossed the Grand Canyon a year ago this month). But like I said, I shall close my eyes and jump!
However, there is a reason that we have an immediate response to certain situations that becomes fear. And, after it is all over, we are able to confirm that somehow the fear had ‘some’ relevancy. But, WE MADE IT! Fear is just another form of worry, and, Researchers at the University of Cincinnati found that eight-five percent (yes – 85%) of what we worry about never happens. Moreover, the study found that 79% of us handle the 15% that does happen in ways that surprise us with our ability to actually make good of the situation.
So, let’s train ourselves (mind) to see the good in absolutely everything, while “talking” ourselves out of fear, knowing that we shall have a Fabulous and Exciting life because we know that all of the Answers will be Revealed:
FABULOUS – Be amazingly wonderful and extraordinary in the risks you take and the outcome you are expecting. Think fabulous thoughts and fabulous things will begin to happen. In fact, know that at any moment, and at any time, something unexpected can happen and will happen.
EXCITING – Live a life full of excitement by doing things you’ve longed to do for a while now, no matter what it may be. Get excited about all of the little things that others may take for granted and know that you can do something different and new everyday.
ANSWERS – You receive confirmation of new opportunities ahead each and every morning that you arise to a new day. You get to create your own questions (path) and provide the final answers (results). Choose your story, no, I’m sorry, write your story as you already know what statement has to be made.
REVEALED – Keep working diligently at being positive and on your goals, creating your fabulous excitement and answers and trust that though it may have been hidden initially, all of your hopes and desires will be disclosed in a dramatic and surprising way.
I would like to say that , we do not have to fear fear itself and remember,“To truly escape the fear (you feel), you may have to go through it and not around it!”
Live a life of expectancy and go ahead, Have Some FEAR! I’ve given you permission!
