Let go of self-doubt and fear with these five empowering tips.
You’re as Fearless as You Believe You Are
It’s easy to think that confident people are born that way, but confidence isn’t an inherited trait, it’s a state of mind and being. Fear is an emotion that is in your complete control. When you discover that your fear is only a part of your occurring, you can move past the stories in your head.
Being Authentic Helps
So many people get caught up trying to be the person they think others want them to be that they don’t fully express themselves, holding back out of fear of rejection. But when you find your authentic voice, you can then begin to express who you really are. People respect honest people. If the crowd you’re around doesn’t accept your authentic self, you probably shouldn’t be around them.
What’s In Your Head Is Probably Just In Your Head
The fear conversation is only in your mind. Others only see what you’re projecting, and most of the time people aren’t even focused on your hang-ups. Research has actually shown that 80-90 percent of the things we worry about never even happen. Makes you wonder why you’re fearful in the first place, right?
You Can’t Grow When You Can’t Move Past Fear
You can’t grow if you’re constantly in a state of fear but you can get comfortable with it. Instead of focusing on the fear, push yourself to do the things that scare you. Not only will you feel more courageous afterwards, but you will also feel empowered when fearful situations come up.
Your Victories Matter
Every success in your life matters, no matter the size. Reflect on your victories over the past few years and over your life. What did it take for you to move past the fear and accomplish that particular victory? Carry that same energy and confidence into any situation you’re fearfully facing. Let those victories encourage you.
