Transition, change, whatever you want to call it is hard. Mainly because it involves a fear of the unknown; when we know what to expect, we can deal with it. But, when we do not, we fear it. Ignoring your fears will not make them go away. The only way to alleviate your fears is to face them head on. There are some very specific steps you can take to achieve that.
Write about it. Write about the things you do every day, the things you accomplish and the things you fear. Writing helps you reflect and experience things in a different way. You quiet your mind and really focus your energy. After time, you will be inspired by what you have accomplished and amazed at how much you have grown. This will help you face your fears much more rationally.
Relax about it. Sometimes we allow our fears to encompass us which in turn gives them more power over us. Unclench your jaw, open your fists, breath, and relax.
Change your story. Another way to overcome fear is to change the story you tell yourself about your fears. Create new stories that involve you overcoming your fears. Do not allow the past to keep a hold of you.
Laugh at your fear. Laughter is very healing and empowering. Laughing at your fears can be the first step in learning to overcome them.
Focus on abundance. Celebrate your life and stop being a victim. Stop paying attention to negative messages and focus on being generous.
Believe in yourself. See yourself overcoming your fears. Focus on being ready and prepared for success, wonder, fortune and opportunity. You deserve the best. Accept and embrace that.
Help others. Helping others helps you move ahead; move past your fears. When it comes down to it, we all want the same things. We all want to be happy, healthy, loved and content. Helping others achieve those things helps us.
Enjoy life. Life is filled with beauty, adventure, challenge and joy. Experience it all. Enjoy it all. In doing so, you will begin to work through your fears.
Fear is a great paralyzer. It often holds us back from doing things we dream about doing or need to be doing. Identifying your fears is important. If there is no real danger, then a fear should and must be overcome to help us grow. If there is danger, then we know how to respond. Try doing something today that you would not normally do and begin moving outside your comfort zone to conquer your fears. Go to a movie or dinner alone. Wear something you would not normally wear. Try a new hair cut or makeup technique. Move yourself toward your fears and eventually you can alleviate them.
