Why Do people stay where they are…?

Have you wondered what Fear stands for?

 False Expectations Appearing Real

FEAR is simply that. It is only in your minds and so it’s critical  to keep  focused on what is real.

By letting your fears consume you, you potentially  self sabotage which in turn simply helps you justify what you feared in the first place.

Fear is an interesting emotion and also unpleasant at the best of times. We all seem to experience fear from time to time and for some, more than usual. Albeit, we don’t like being fearful, many people are so used to this experience and it becomes second nature; like on auto pilot, the minute you are faced with a new challenge or unpleasant situation your fear automatically kicks in.  So if you combine fear with your head chatter, the thought becomes very real doesn’t it?

Here are the conversations you will have with your head (we call it head chatter)

  • “If I don’t do this… this will happen…
  • “what if…
  • “I’m too scared to find out the truth then I have to deal with the truth…

Are the above self chat conversation sound familiar?

How many times have you come across great opportunities and you were so excited then  the feeling of fear and the head chatter took over your thoughts and then you don’t follow through with your decision. I know you can come up with many reasons and excuses to why you did not follow through. The truth is part of you were scared and the feeling of fear stopped you from taking action.

My view about fear is “a make believe that seems so real.” It’s a game that plays with your mind. Fear consists of a collection of thoughts in your head. They are your thoughts that project into the future, it is based upon what you have experienced in the past therefore what you think is going to happen in the future.

So do you KNOW what is going to happen in the future? Of course NOT. The future is only a promise. It hasn’t happened yet. However, the past was yesterday , it has gone. What you have recalled of the past is a collection of memories in your mind of what you think has happened.

Your thoughts and feelings create your focus, and your focus decides what you will experience in life. So this fearful situation is becoming a problem if you fall into the trap mode or a long time and if you unable to step out of it. Any of your fear thoughts can actually become reality as you are the key creator of this emotion. Remember your thought is a powerful one, there is this saying:

“You are what you think, what you think is what you focus on and what you focus on is what you get”

So, if Fear is believable, then are we making a wrong turn with regards to its reality.

Tune in next week, we’ll show you step by step how you can conquer your own fears so you don’t procrastinate and get on with your life to give yourself the opportunity to shine and do what you love in life and business.

Life is too short and here is a quote for you to think it over:

”  I’d rather regret the things I’ve done 
than regret the things I haven’t done”
