Everyone has fears, and that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Fear is a totally natural and normal emotion and can act as a warning to keep us out of difficult or dangerous situations. The problem is when we let our fear control us, when we completely avoid what makes us uncomfortable and afraid. It is time to realize that the majority of our fears come from our own perceptions. A fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of connection: these are the things that can hold us back in our lives and careers. By finding the strength to combat these fears, you can begin to steadily move beyond them. Now it is easy to say that all you need to do is conquer your fear, but easier said than done. It takes courage and stamina to push past your insecurities. Instead of attacking them head on, start to explore them. When and where did these things create fear in you? Maybe that time has come and gone and you can let the emotional history disappear. Be brave! Face the fear and ask it: What do you serve now? Are you still useful?
