FEAR


Blog #11

Fear is something that we all have built up in us, we all fear something or someone in our lives.  You may fear other people, things, places, fear of the unknown or even fear itself.  I define fear as: Something that is not real, it’s something that you conjure up in your mind that manifests into fear.

Throughout my life, I have feared many things, things that were not worthy to worry about.  Becoming so scared that fear took over my body.  Fear is only a limitation that you put on yourself, it can paralyze you.  It moves into your life and can destroy it, if you are not careful.  Sometimes we need fear to “Kick Start” us into gear.  To remove yourself from a potentially dangerous situation.  It’s our “Fight or Flight” response, everyone is wired differently.  Life has it’s challenges, we just have to look fear right in the eye and beat it for good.

You know when you have some sort of test, a school test medical test, etc. your mind starts wondering, you start thinking of that test, how it’s going to turn out, are you going to do well?  Are you going to fail?  You start to worry, then it turns into a panic attack, that’s when fear has already taken over.

When I battled cancer, I didn’t let fear take over, I took it over by beating the cancer with faith, hope, and a positive attitude.  I told myself everyday that “Everything was going to be okay, and believed that I would be fine”

STEPS TO BREAK THROUGH FEAR

  1. Know that you are stronger than the fear, (Inner knowing is powerful!)
  2. Take one step at a time.
  3. Face your fear, if you don’t stand up to it, it will always hold you down.
  4. Once you face fear, don’t face that same fear again.  It can be a vicious cycle.

When fear takes over your life, you become it’s puppet, it pulls your strings and yanks you to do the opposite of what you want to accomplish.

There will be new fears in your life, a fear of spiders, a fear of speaking up for yourself, a fear of other people, or deep rooted fears that you have carried around for a life time.  Those fears are the hardest ones to fight.  Change your mind set, and change your life!

Eat Right For Your Life,

God Bless You!
