Fear of what might happen is a waste of time and energy. If the thing you are worrying about doesn’t happen, you have wasted all that time and energy for nothing.
Take a moment to think about what it is you fear. Now think about what is the worst thing that could happen. Is it really likely to happen? Is there something you could learn from it if it did happen?
What things did you used to fear? I was walking to school with my daughters today, aged 11 and 8, and we were talking about how we used to fear monsters under our bed when we were young.
Now we are more mature, we know that our fear and the energy we put into it was wasted time and energy.
Think about some other things in the past that you may have feared and how do you feel about them now?
Fear can stop you from trying new things.
A great way to overcome fear is to imagine yourself after you have done it. How do you feel now that you have tackled and overcome your fear?
This way, you get to visualise yourself doing whatever it was you are afraid of. You also get to feel all the emotions of success.
