Reset Your Thinking Day 6 – Conquer Your Fear
“Energy and persistence conquer all things” – Benjamin Franklin
Reset Your Thinking! Fear keeps us in the shadows/background. It convinces us we can never accomplish our dreams, tells us to keep quiet, and separates us from the ones we love. Fear suffocates us it has an unparalleled ability to freeze us in our tracks, and limit what we are willing to try. Fear makes us lead a smaller life.
Face your fears.. it is important to note that some fears are healthy and some situations should be avoided for your own personal safety. There are no hero points awarded for going into a personally threatening situation. However, if the threat is more mental than physical, actually doing the thing you’re afraid of can be the best antidote of all.
Don’t forget that it is often easiest to do this in steps. If your biggest fear is public speaking (and it is for the majority of us) don’t offer to address the room at the next stock director’s meeting, but do try something smaller. Consider leading your next departmental meeting, or give a small talk at your next group meeting, something with a small audience and familiar faces, then work your way up from there. Facing your fears is a process and you and only you can face them. #FaceYourFears #ResetYourThinking #ConquerYourFears
