Ever wish you could break free and just face your fears?
Once we sold our home to travel full-time in our RV, we started encountering new experiences on what seemed like a daily basis! And it really became more and more inconvenient to live in fear…especially once there were so many new things that made me fearful.
Fear became one of my worst enemies, always lurking…constantly threatening to make me miss out on potentially wonderful experiences.
I’m still a work in progress in this regard, but one way I’ve started conquering some of my fears is by adopting the following super simple 4-step strategy:
1. Realize that I’m afraid of “X”.
2. Ask myself if I want to remain afraid of “X.”
3. If the answer is “no,” then I ask myself what I would do if I were NOT afraid of “X.”
4. Then I go ahead and do THAT!
I know it sounds too simple to be useful, but it works! I think it works, perhaps, because it reminds me that being afraid is a choice!!!
And then I realize that I can’t really sit around feeling sorry for myself because I’m afraid…because I am the one deciding that it’s scary.
And, honestly, I’m just sick of being afraid of things!!!
This little trick works for physical fears (for example, I’ve been conquering fears of heights, bridges, etc.) or psychological fears (like speaking in front of crowds for example) or any kind of fears you may have.
Are YOU tired of living in fear?! Then, I’d love for you to give this little trick a try and let me know how it goes!
