Diminish Fear

fear is a liar

“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” ~ Rosa Parks

Fear is one of the most powerful emotions in the human psyche. It can shut down one’s ability to function, take steps in the wrong direction, or make decisions that one would not have made otherwise. Sometimes life and the events that happen and the turns that it takes can be very frightening.

Remember that without fear there can’t be courage. When you come up against a scary situation know that although danger is real, fear is entirely psychological. When you are afraid, make a conscious decision to overcome that fear and move past or over whatever scares you.

Emerald Warrior 2011My challenge to you this week is to think of something you are afraid of (nothing life or death) and conquer it, be that petting a dog or skydiving, that’s up to you., just get out and do it! This will raise your confidence and give you courage to try more!

Then take the time to figure out what your purpose, vision & goals are. Making a plan and committing to it will diminish your fears. Then you can move forward with new found confidence and power.

Believe in yourself and your capabilities and you can do whatever you want to do!!
