Facing your Fears

To many people, fear is a part of life. Not the typical, well-known and talked about fears like claustrophobia and hypochondria, but the fears that keep you from going after the job you know would make you ecstatically happy.


Our own self-esteem issues can keep us from taking steps that could help us make the big step from being a paralegal to a lawyer, or an online writer from penning a book.

We are often our own worst enemy. Negative self talk keeps us in our comfort zone. The fence that surrounds our comfort zone is our fears. Some fences are bigger than others, but fences nonetheless.

Take the time to think about what would make you happy. Clue: it is not something you can buy!

Is it a promotion in the field you are presently in, or something totally different?

Will it require you to go back to school?

Is it marriage?

Start with a written list of exactly what you are looking for; looking for a mate who is a Christian?

Visit different churches or Church dinners. Life can be just what happens to you; living is those purposeful steps you make to make your passion happen.

Think about what you are afraid of. Do this when you are alone and can think without interruption. Be honest about your feelings.

Why are you afraid of that?

Where do those feelings come from?

What is the worst that could happen to me if I faced this fear head on?

Will you die, or will you come out knowing that you faced a fear that will forever change your life?
