Are you doing what you want with your life?
Are you following your path to happiness and fulfilment?
If the answer is “no” and you ask yourself “why not” then your likely answer has some fear attached…. is it be a fear of failure? …or fear of the consequences of change? …. or the fear of being rejected? ……. or the fear of making a wrong decision? ……or a fear of losing something or someone you value?
There are many things we can be afraid of and as our brains are ‘hardwired’ to keep us safe, it follows that often our brains prompt the ‘self-talk’ in our heads that steers us away from anything that induces fear.
To help to counter fear it can be helpful to ‘talk back’ to ourselves about the fear we may be overlooking or ignoring by not doing things differently: this may be the fear of limiting our progress …. or the fear of not finding fulfilment ….or the fear of wasting our talents ….or the fear of missing a great opportunity ……or the fear of remaining unhappy.
Spending some time considering what we may be losing or missing by avoiding our prominent fear can give us courage and drive to make changes …rather than looking back several years later with regret that we didn’t act and find greater enjoyment in our lives and move closer to fulfilment.
