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.
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.
