Day 57: 100 Days
Fear: an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.
Fear of failure. Fear of success. Fear of the unknown. It's causes anxiety. It paralyzes. It keeps us from moving forward. Sometimes it warps our sense of reality. When it's unwarranted, it's a thief of curiosity, of possibility, of self-esteem.
One way that I try to overcome my fears is to ask myself one of these questions, "What is the worst that could happen? Could I live with that?" "Do I have the freedom to change my mind?" "What is the tradeoff if I don't try?"
These have been clarifying questions for me. Most of the time, the fear is unwarranted and I'm almost always glad I stepped out in whatever it was that I was afraid of.
