Fear is the number one offender when it comes to creating a barrier in ones life. This barrier acts as a weight on the mind and substantially reduces personal growth & development. Furthermore, it may act as a catalyst in the onset of anxiety, depression and/or addiction.
Most individuals dream of becoming successful, however, they typically only get as far as the thought process and never really take action. Reason being, there are many associated fears with each thought on becoming successful. The most common fear is change, as it creates the notion of “what if;” what if I fail, what if I lose money, what if I lose my house, what if I lose my family, what if I get hurt, what if they don’t like me, what if this is a mistake?
On the flip side, “what if” you were successful, what if you made a financial gain, what if you secured your home, what if you develop a better relationship with your family, what if you became stronger, what if they did like you, what if this is was not a mistake.
Fears prevent us from taking chances and trying new things. In turn, slowing us down in life. Without fears, we would experience exponential growth and regain faith in the system that is built to ensure our success.
A baby for example, has only two basic fears, the fear of being dropped and the fear of going hungry. Otherwise, the baby fearlessly grows much faster in life than adults. They are not held back by fears such as; fear what others think of them, fear taking chances, fear of change etc.. For this reason, baby’s are successful in their early developmental stages.
Adults on the other hand, have “acquired fears” that prevent any further growth. These fears are typically learnt behaviours that resulted from bad life experiences. Overcoming these fears will re open the doors of growth and allow for success.
Keep in mind, experiencing growth will create emotional discomfort, just as though with a baby. However, refrain yourself from using any substances and/or medications to mediate the emotions as this will cause a disruption in your growth.
