One Month of Fearlessness

Fear, whether conscious or subconscious, holds most back in life.

It’s very much like a boat’s mooring lines, tethering you to the dock, preventing you from venturing too far in life.

The key to overcoming fear is to take small steps, or dip your toe in just a little. Once you realize your fears are unfounded, it gives you courage to keep pursuing dreams or goals that were previously halted by your fears.

Baby steps allow you to face your fear incrementally, bit by bit, until your confidence grows to the point where you are able to cut those lines and free yourself from your fear.

Here’s How To Free Yourself From Fears

  1. Make a list of your top four biggest fears.
  2. Each week for a month, focus on just one fear.
  3. Do some little thing that forces you to face that fear every day for seven days.
  4. Move on to your next fear and repeat steps 1 – 3.

The purpose of this exercise is to prove to you that your fears are blown way out of proportion. It will help you forge the habit of overcoming fear. As your confidence grows, fear retreats.

  1. So true, I learned this from Rock Climbing. You just have to find the next foothold or handhold and make that little incremental step. Good word. Thanks!
