How to Get Past Your Fears?

Dear Readers,

Not one single human being on this planet earth is free from the emotion of fear. Whilst they are many benefits of fear, which I will share with you below. Fear has known to cripple people. Let us explore in this article how we can use FEAR to unleash our full potential.

Fear is just a thought

When we put it this way that fear is just THOUGHT then can you imagine how small it is comparing to actually what it is? It is OUR Minds that make the FEAR seem so big and scary. As we continue to feed the thought and allow it to expand, it becomes a liability which by now has crippled us. It can happen to anyone if we tend to feed that fear with constant thought about what will happen or could happen and then use words to describe the horrific thoughts that we have created in our minds, at this point we are crippled. And fear has defeated us, funnily enough, it has proven its point that it was right and we were wrong to even think about doing what we thought we could. Fear is keeping us safe from what we think could harm us. Get curious and YOU decide whether giving in to your fear is good or bad for you.

Pushing Past Fears

Whilst all these aspects have elements of fear attached to them, can you just imagine pushing past these limitations? what could you possibly feel?  I am guessing your answer will be’ power, liberation, exhilaration and happiness.  It should be all of those things.

I know from experience, and you may have experienced this too when you have been crippled by the thought of not being able to do something, and then all of a sudden you decide to do it anyway. That feeling is something else, that can make you feel on top of the world as if you have conquered a milestone. And yes, getting past a fear should be celebrated elaborately as you have just got past one of the things that were holding you back.

Since last year,  I have been pushing myself out of my comfort zone to do things that have scared me the most and being present on social media is one of them, even at one point, the thought about writing anything and publishing it online was one of my biggest fears. but being on the path of personal development I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone each day which I would encourage every one of you to do the same!

What scares you?

What is your wish, that you would like to do, or become? AND  you know in the deepest of your heart that it will help you grow in your career or personal life.

Have you ever said, ‘only if I was good at public speaking?, only if I wasn’t shy? only if I could…….

I was stuck in that mindset wishing for things to happen.  unfortunately,  things won’t happen themselves without the ACTION. Think about the worst and then if you didn’t do it what would happen?

Associate Pain and Pleasure to your fears and hopefully this will give you the perspective to it.

It’s never the right time – NOW is the right time.


It doesn’t matter how much it scares you, do it anyway! You never know where it will take you. It will get past your fear, Guaranteed your confidence will soar.

So, what have you got to lose – Just DO IT!

You don’t have to be alone – reach out and I’ll be by your side.


Peace and Prosperity
