The Otherside of Fear – Part 1

What are you afraid of? What happens when you step out in spite of your fear? Getting through fear is a skill that anyone can learn. If you aren’t ready to face your fears, you probably won’t transcend them. And there’s nothing wrong in that. Everything happens for a reason and in its own time.

To step into the ring of fire of our fears we first have to be truthful to ourselves because it would mean we actually have to look in the mirror instead of pointing the finger at those around us. Fear… the biggest mountain of all. Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.

The challenge is letting go of it. We fear failure yet in the same sentence we fear success. We fear being alone yet we fear to fall in love. We fear change yet we dislike what is at the present. The list goes on and affects every aspect of our lives, personal, professional, emotional and even physical. Fear is a natural part of life. Many of our fears stem from our childhood and upbringing, (this is a whole other story) however we often bury our fears and avoid facing them and their origins so much so, that they end up haunting us right into adulthood.

Dig down deep within yourself and uncover the origins of your fears. Face them head-on and understand them. Once you acknowledge your fears you destroy their abilities to control your life and you just may uncover that the monsters in the closet are a lot less frightening than you originally thought they were.
