On fear today…
Fear is one of the most primal human emotions, which has both a physiological and emotional response. It is also complex, differing from person to person. It is a tricky thing.
It can be helpful at times and can protect us by telling us to keep our guard up.
But….Most of the times…with most of us, it stops us from living a fulfilled life.
Friends, colleagues, neighbor’s, acquaintances or whomsoever I converse with, seem to be dealing with some or other fear.. physical or mental, infact for many of us it creates a crippling effect, due to which….the number of opportunities we let go, the experiences we are hesitant to even try out, and the stronger, more successful and better person we fail to become.
Whether it’s fear of the unknown, fear of failure, or fear of success, overcoming our fears is one of the most important steps to achieving anything worth talking about or even living freely in this beautifully magical world of ours.
Fear is a form of unconscious emotional feedback, a signal of a risk threshold being met in the path towards what we desire.
Whenever we align with purpose, fear becomes the signpost to risk. Fear should be there to protect us in the path not to discourage us from it.
To lack fear is not possible nor desirable, like pain it has helped us to thrive and survive danger…it is better to use it as a compass or a map forward rather than a reason to lay down or put an halt to our life journey.
Sharing a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson..
“Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world”.
How true is that.
For now that much…will discuss the steps to overcome various fears in 2020
