If fear keeps stalling your progress, then it’s time you do something about it. Many successful people like you have had the same experience, but they were able to go past their fear and that is why they have made a difference.
One of the things that humans share in common is fear. It is a sign of being flawed and mortal, and no one, whosoever, can claim to never have known the sense of fear. It is natural to fear if there is some danger, but the fear that cannot be explained becomes a problem. One of the common fears we live with is the fear of failure, the feeling that sees failure before a project is even begun. There are many people who do not come as much as making a start in a project because of the fear of failure. If fear is the thing that is stalling your progress in life and hindering you from doing things that can make you attain success, then it is time you find ways to deal with it.
It is important to know that fear is a common experience and that you are not the only person who is affected by it. Even the most successful people you will find also have moments of fear but they only succeed because they take the challenge to go beyond their fear. You should be able to define your fear and understand its source. Naming your fear is very important as it helps you develop the proper tools to fight against it. If your fear remains vague, then it is possible that it will continually stall your progress. There are different things that explain the fear in people: terrorism, failure, loss, pain, shame, illness and many others. The commonest thing that characterizes fear when it comes to personal growth and development is failure, the feeling that you might not make it can be the greatest obstacle when it comes to succeeding in any venture in life.
The easiest way of handling fear is to develop a positive mindset that sees fear as a challenge rather than an obstacle. You will never know what you can do except you try. Always consider anything you do as an opportunity to learn and remember that the best lessons in life are learned the hard way. Give yourself the credit of trying even if you fail, because by trying you test your skills and gain more knowledge of what you can do and what you cannot do. Also bear in mind that you can never grow if you keep repeating things that you are already familiar with. Meeting challenges is the best way of overcoming fear and learning new skills. You can always fight your fear by constantly telling yourself that if others could do it, then you can do it as well. Those who have made a difference in life have once walked the path you are walking now, uncertain and afraid, but they tried anyway.
