3. Standing Up to Fear
What are you afraid of? It doesn’t matter whether it’s speaking in public or snakes on a plane, if you really want to conquer your fears, you can.
Let’s talk for a few moments about fear. Fear can be either a valuable ally or a vicious enemy. It can keep you safe and prevent you from taking dangerous chances, but it can also stop you from taking the risks you must take if you are to grow and change for the better.
It’s important to understand that fear itself can’t hurt you. Fear can be seen as a negative rehearsal of the future. You imagine yourself in a certain situation, and you foresee painful results. Now, your imagination is so powerful, that when you see yourself in this painful situation, it produces a response in your body that says, “Stop!” And sometimes, that’s the appropriate thing to do.
But other times, what you really need to do is go forward, especially when you are working toward a goal that is important to you.
A good technique that will help you go beyond fear is to deliberately and repeatedly imagine yourself calmly moving past it. Then, see the positive results clearly and vividly. If you can stay focused on the beneficial aspects and really feel the good feelings that go with it, you will be creating a positive rehearsal of the future that will far outweigh and overrule your fear.
You will be growing stronger and more capable and, at the same time, provide a role model for others who already admire you for standing up to your fears. ~ The Pacific Institute
