Fear gets to the best of us, whether it is fear of failure, fear of success or even fear of fear. All of us
have experienced fear at some point in our lives and it can be a real stumbling block that holds
us back from being truly successful.
Fear can’t hold you back forever, if you don’t let it. There are several ways to overcome your fears, here
are my top 9:
Ask yourself what is really going on, locate the facts and place them over your feelings.
Figure out what it is in a situation that triggers you. Learning to identify it will help you learn to
A lot of times, fear takes over physically. It affects different people different ways. Identify if/how
it affects your physical body and do the work to take care of your body. Ex: if you hold stress in
your back, you can learn stretches, foam rolling, etc. to avoid the pain.
It’s all about bench, overhead and leg pressing for the base with an added bonus of carrying a human being with a moving center of gravity
Everyday, list out 1-3 things you are thankful for. It doesn’t matter how big or small it is, gratitude
helps shift the mind into a positive light, which overtime, overcomes fear.
Monitor your inner conversations. If you wouldn’t say it to a friend, don’t say it to yourself. Speak
positively to yourself and remind yourself of your strengths.
Remind yourself that the feeling and the moment will pass. Focus on the positive outcome of
the situation, rather than the scary inbetween.
Perception is a very powerful thing, and how you feel about your situation dictates how you respond. So think positively and you’ll give yourself a much better chance of success.
This won’t happen overnight; practice with just one thought. What is one recurring negative/fearful thought you have? Work on reversing this one thought. Overtime, this will become a habit.
Breathing helps center your body; when you stop breathing, your heart stops beating.
You can do a grounding exercise, or even just take 5 deep, long breaths at any point to calm and center yourself. It is best to start your day with this, but feel free to practice all day long
When you feel safe and secure, there is no room for fear. Find somewhere safe you can retreat to when ill feelings begin- whether this is a real place such as your bedroom, or a place in your mind such as the beach. This sense of comfort will soothe you and allow you to face your fear.
