Let’s face it: even the toughest people get scared now and then.
But whether fear pops up when you’re about to ask for a promotion or attempt a new squat PR, it shouldn’t hold you back from going after your goals. Fear is a mental construct; unless we’re being attacked by a bear, fear has no basis or value in our lives.
In true environments of threat, the presence of fear is purposeful, as it activates the fight or flight response needed for our survival. However, when fears are stemming from our internal perception and no true threat exists, then we’re really only responding to an illusion that we have manufactured. So the next time fear is standing in your way, be prepared with a plan to combat it. Here are four steps you can start taking today to obliterate your fears and reclaim your power. Think of these exercises as a circuit workout for your mind, which over time, will override limiting patterns in the brain that trigger unnecessary fear.
Flow through the following steps each time fear arises in your life.
