Turn Fear into Power

One of the biggest obstacles to what we want out of life is our own fear. The fears that we hold within ourselves keep us from taking risks by engaging in what we might falsely believe to be hazardous behavior. These fears can prevent you from living the life that you really want and reaching out for what you have always desired.

Fortunately, there are ways in which we can overcome these fears and let them work for us, helping us to achieve what it is that we want. Turning these fears into power and using them to your own advantage is the first step in achieving the life you have always wanted.

To begin the process of turning your fear into power, you must learn to focus on what you want. This means to concentrate only on the final outcome of what you would like to achieve, and not the obstacles that you may fear.

If you only concentrate on what it is you want, there will be little room for doubts and fears to nag at your thoughts. It is when we let these fearful thoughts intrude on what we are trying to achieve that they overwhelm us and prevent us from reaching what it is we really want.

In the event that you find that your fear is actually stopping you from taking any action toward your goal, you must face that fear. Think about what it is that you are really afraid of, write down those fears and then think about what it is that is bringing on that fear.

Once you can clearly see what it is that brings on your fear, you can decide if they are rational fears and how to overcome them to achieve what you want.

By bringing your fears out into the open and knowing what is at the root of that fear you can more easily decide how you can overcome it. For example, if you want to start your own business but you fear the personal financial hardship that you may encounter when you first start up, decide what it is you can do to reduce the possibility of this hardship. This will help to reduce the fear the thought produces.

When you have discovered what is at the root of your fears, faced the possibility of that situation as well as decided how best you can reduce the chances of that outcome, you are now ready to make the decision to move forward.

You can either let your fears cripple you and prevent you from reaching out for what you want, or you can turn those fears into another form of power that will help you to achieve what you set out to do.

Turning your fear into power is a simple process of facing those fears and conquering them by either realizing that you really have no reason to harbor such fears, or working around them, always keeping what you hope to achieve topmost in your thoughts.
