Don't Let Fear Of Change Control Your Life
Sometimes we become so used to be fearful all the time, that we can actually get to a place where we do not even recognise that we are living our lives in constant fear. When we live in fear, we are always thinking about all the things that could go wrong. With all the negativity around us, it is very common to allow fear and anxiety to affect us. Not knowing what the future holds for us, plays a huge role in anxiety and worry. The problem is that some of us have the need to feel in control of what is happening all the time, but uncertainty is unavoidable, and thinking about negative outcomes doesn’t help us. Sometimes we need to just dare to proceed even while being afraid.
Letting go of fear not only helps us to embrace change, but it also has a positive impact on our mind and our health. In order stop to living in fear, and expecting the worst to always happen, we need to adjust our thoughts, we need to look at things from a different perspective, a more positive one. Our problems are often rooted in fear. Fear leaves us powerless, thinking that we’re not good enough, and it takes away our confidence.
We need to learn to accept our feelings, including fear, without letting it stop us. If you want to change something in your life, take a moment to analyse if fear is what is motivating your behaviour. Our mind and our thoughts are powerful, that’s why we need to focus on what we are attracting into our lives. Taking control of your present moment means being responsible for your life, and understanding that you are capable of change. If you find yourself in an unhealthy and toxic relationship, if your work is not giving you the recognition you desire, if you are not happy with the way you are behaving or the way you look, you are moving away from who you truly are. We need to live an authentic life where our joys and blessings are greater than pain and negativity, and in order to do that, we must let go of the past, stop internalising past issues, and train our mind to think about what we want from life.
Negative thinking is the cause of worry and fear, and it has the power to stop us from putting our actions into motion, and letting go of what is holding us back. Getting used to a pattern of negative thinking feels like building a prison in your own mind. Be aware of what you think and talk back to your negative thoughts, this is where the real change occurs. Recognise that sometimes, your fear is not rational, and it is causing you intense anxiety or panic. Fear can be used as a tool to help us identify problems, and solve them effectively, but there is absolutely nothing good that can come from spending your time worrying. Most of the terrible things we imagine and we afraid of, is caused by a habit of negative thinking that we probably built over the years.
Acknowledge the positive things in your life in order to feel empowered, and take control of your thoughts and your actions. Fear makes you always be discontent and wanting more. A courageous person focus on his/her strengths. They choose to act because they know that they don’t need something outside themselves, in order to make things better. They understand that they have the tools to change their own future.
Reflect on your fears and notice how much they affect your life. If fear is making you hesitate about making a decision, get to know the situation better, by owning your feelings. This is the first step toward gaining control over the situation and plan your future actions. You don’t need to ignore your fears, you just need to figure out a way to stop this negative feeling to control your mind and your behaviour.
Remember that you have the power to let go of unhealthy thoughts and beliefs, but you need to be patient and kind with yourself, because it takes time to break a habit. Every day, make a conscious effort to challenge your fears. Remember that you are in control to direct your thoughts, and live a better life. Ask for spiritual guidance and stay determined to persevere and fight for your dreams, even when it seems impossible.
