How to Overcome Fear of Change
Still feeling scared? Try this quick experiment.
First ask yourself what’s the worst thing that can happen if you do overcome your fears and follow your dream.
Then ask yourself what will happen if you let fear rule you and stick with the life you’ve got right now.
Well, I envisaged a life tinged with regret, bitterness and sadness if I chose the second alternative, and frankly that scared me more. It helped me overcome my fears and I hope it’ll work for you too.
Face Your Fears and Feel Fabulous
Facing your fears makes you feel confident, proud and indomitable. It’s true, you may not succeed in achieving your goal 100% but at least you’ll have tried and some good will come from that.
So join me, in my literary run with the wolves: pick your dream, feel the fear and, as Susan Jeffer’s book says, do it anyway. If you want to move overseas but are scared, if you want to change careers but are worried, whatever you want, don’t let fear get the better of you. Put yourself in the hot spot, tell the world what you want to do and start planning how to do it.
Oh, and if you’re not quite sure what exactly it is you want to do yet, fear not, I’ll write down a few ideas to help you come up with that soon.
