Ironically enough, we can actually benefit from our fears. Let me put it this way for you: Whenever we do something that makes us nervous, we change completely from the person we were before. It inspires faith in us.
But who am I to make such significant claims? Am I a psychologist? No. It was based on my personal experience. When I was in college, I found it a little unsettling to perform in front of an audience because I worried whether or not I would be able to give a quality performance.
I had two choices. Either give up and never learn the answers, or just jump in, do everything I could, learn the answers, and never look back. I decided to go with option two, and it worked because there was a simulation activity that I participated in. I was a BBA first-year student at the time, competing with students up to MBA second-year, and guess what? I came out on top.
When you face your fear head-on and maintain your composure, you’ll witness it vanish before your very eyes. That’s because fear usually simply exists in the imagination.
Only when there is a threat or a genuine emergency, such as a serious illness, a medical scare, or when your entire world is imploding, is dread justified. Fear serves as a protective mechanism that keeps you away from danger.
So quit fearing fear if you don’t want things to become worse. Get rid of your fears, whether they be of bugs, animals, or people; of losing your job, going bankrupt, or getting dumped; of taking an exam; of speaking, etc.
I’m not sure what level of fulfillment and assurance that gives me. As soon as we see the results, supposedly, it becomes addictive. I experienced the same results. This feeling of accomplishment and self-assurance gave me a boost and paved the way for fresh possibilities. Although I had never hosted an event before, I followed the process and hosted an annual function first, followed by freshers, to satisfy my craving for that high and confidence-booster that comes from overcoming our fears. I understood what the proverb “Do what you scare” meant.
Above all, keep in mind that you possess the courage and knowledge necessary to go beyond any barriers standing in the way of enjoying the life you truly deserve.
By following these easy actions, you may cultivate the quality of confidence inside yourself. You’ll soon be equipped with unparalleled inner strength and power and prepared to face the world.
Never let anything stand in your path. Remember that.
