How To Become Fearless!

Mastering Your Fears...

Fear is an emotion that is triggered in your mind; it gives you a warning when an impending event can directly affect your life. We fear something that can lead us to danger or even death, and when fear overcomes reason it turns into phobia. That type of fear becomes a mental condition, and it would require the help of a mental health professional like a psychologist to correct or cure it.  So, why do we need to understand our fears? We need to know more about it, because it is the first step on becoming fearless.

When you are fearless, you can accomplish more and you will never fall to melancholy even if you experience failures along the way. However, being brave doesn’t mean feeling invincible, you know that there are limitations to what you can do but you are not afraid to take some risks. I know this for a fact, because there are decisions in my life that seems radical, but I still need to make those decisions - no matter what the cost.

So what do people fear the most in their lives?

Everything that could bring them to a situation that is out of their comfort zone. If you are fearful to make some changes in your life, then you will never improve yourself. I wrote down several steps that have helped me before and I still use these methods to tackle several tricky situations that I encounter in a daily basis.

Know your goals – it is wise to know what you really want to achieve. They say goals open up opportunities and motivate you to move forward. For me this is true, because without goals you become stagnant.

Face your fears – this means identify what you are fearful about. If you are afraid of something, even if it is too childish for you, then write it down on a piece of paper. Make a list of things you are fearful about.

Create your options – also on the piece of paper where you wrote down your fears, write several strategies that you can employ to combat your fears along with some rational explanation of those fears.

Take the risks, make the changes – once you have the list, discipline yourself and implement those changes. Go out of you comfort zone and take some risks, but be brave enough to face the consequences. Always remember, it would take some time and effort before you see some good results, but you need to be patient and wait for that certain moment – when you truly mastered your fears.

Mastering your fears can be a great feat to achieve, but it is not impossible to do. Becoming fearless is also giving yourself some freedom, because you are not bounded by emotions that stop you from reaching your goals in life.
