When it comes to fear, there are two general categories—real fear, and the fear we invent. Doing something that challenges you may be scary, but it is the only way to grow. Here’s how to embrace being scared.
Just Say Yes
Pay attention to the next few times you turn down an opportunity to do something completely out of your norm. Ask yourself if your reason to decline is simply fear driving your decision, or a sincere lack of interest. And if it’s something you’ve never tried before, you can’t really know if your lack of interest is sincere until you try.
Some Of The Best Things Come From Uncertain Times
We can plan as many details of our life as we possible, often forgetting that our plans provide us with a false sense of control. The truth is, some of the most influential changes and adventures, began with something that once scared us.
It’s Healthy To Face Your Fears
Facing your fears means you are living your life on your own terms. While you certainly need a balance between the level of comfort and challenge in your life, facing your fears means you won’t stay stuck in a “comfortable” unhealthy situation.
Set a goal to try one thing that scares you at least once a month. If scared does feel quite like the right descriptive, at least try something new.
