Mindset Mastery 9/26/11- Overcome Your Nervousness & Fear

To overcome your anxiety, nervousness, and fear, you must approach it. There is no other alternative.

Most people avoid what makes them nervous. Avoidance keeps you trapped in the jail of your mind. What happens is, people irrationally link a disproportionate amount of potential pain to something- say public speaking, or heights. People around us tell us to just stay away from it. Seems like the logical thing to do. If something makes you uneasy, avoid it. The problem is you never have an opportunity for life to prove to you that things are not as bad as they seem. Perhaps if you faced your fear something good would happen. Maybe you would handle the situation well. But if you stay away from things that make you scared, life cannot prove you wrong. You assume the worst, you avoid, you stay trapped in your own head. This is a vicious cycle that needs to be broken immediately.

Facing your fears is the key to unlocking and releasing you from this mental jail. You need to have positive experiences with that which makes you nervous or you will continue to be anxious about it.

You can approach things (1) slowly, step by step, little by little (2) all at once (3) through imagery and visualization. However you do it, you must approach things that make you anxious.

The words "Fear not" are found together in the Bible 75 times. Fear keeps you from living the life of your dreams. Figure out what makes you nervous and get to work on finding a way to approach it today. Live fanatically!
