How To Stop Fearing

And start Living

You know the familiar feelings of fear:  The heart beats more quickly in the chest, your breathing becomes short and rapid, and the entire body begins to cringe.  Flight verses fight, the tradition response to fear is no longer a life survival requirement.  There was a time when we needed to be aware of how we would react if a tiger was about to attack us or if a cobra was near.  Today, this automatic response can be seen more as anxiety versus depression, these responses still exist but there is a difference;  today we can do something about fear.

Step 1

Stop using the word, "fear."  The Law of Attraction states whatever we focus on we get more of.  By someone saying, "I have to get rid of the fear," they are inevitably going to bring more.  Eliminate this word from your vocabulary!

Step 2

Change something.  Change itself can cause much fear for some of you.  Yet small changes are sometimes all we need to get us moving in the right direction.  For example, even moving furniture around your home or placing your shoes in a different place is change.  Become more open to change, by doing one thing differently each week.

Step 3

Do something new.  One of the things Joe Vitale, author and speaker in the film, The Secret, teaches is to 'Dare something worthy.'  He is onto something here!  If each one of us did one thing new each week, fear would become less significant in your life.  Most of the time, we are on auto-pilot.  Allowing ourselves to try new things, even things we may find scary, will help us to move in the direction of our life dreams. 

Step 4

Know you are worthy.  This is a challenging one for some of you; especially when our brain wants to keep us at the same level we are at.  This is because its job is to keep us safe at all costs.  Many do not feel they are worthy of their goals.  To begin to make a shift with your neural programming, add positive affirmations into your daily life.  It sounds rather silly, but saying things like, "I am open to receive" will go a long way in helping you achieve your goals.

We can all do things a little differently than we currently do them.  All we need to do is shift our awareness away from fear and toward living the life of our dreams.  With practice, your life can and will be better than you ever expected!
