Fear is the most paralyzing of all emotions and the most self-defeating one. We all worry about possible future happenings; we all fear unknown territory. Basically there is nothing wrong with a normal amount of fear and anxiety; in some cases a considerable amount is necessary for survival.
If you are “worry prone,” you might want to contemplate on the following pointers:
1. Do not let worry and fear keep you from living your life. Do not waste your time projecting your worries into an elusive future.
2. Do not let the size of your fears overwhelm you. Break them down into manageable slices.
3. Once you have broken them down, ask yourself: “What could be the worst that could happen?” and “What could be the best that could happen?” Most likely you will discover that your fears are not as unconquerable as you thought them to be.
4. Do not let your worries keep you from doing and taking steps towards your success.
5. Always remember: Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.
