One of our greatest enemies in life is fear. It holds us back from so many great things in life, and the stress it causes results in sickness and lack of joy. I especially hate it in my own life because it means that I am lacking the faith in God, and the faith necessary to excell in life.
So how can we defeat fear? There are several ways. We can pray and ask for God’s help. We can make believe it’s not there. We can take action and forget it’s there.
Among all this, there is one method that I’ve read in several sources over the years that seems to work best. The fears we have are in our mind. In fact, most of our fears don’t even exist. They are simply imagined events or situations that have occurred in only one place..our own minds. Once we realize this, the key is to simply change our thinking. Instead of imagining negative things happening, imagine the best! Instead of fearing failure, imagine success! Instead of fearing rejection, imagine complete acceptance! Anything you fear, imigine the opposite instead. Instead of procrastinating and robbing yourself of the joys of life, you will instead add to life’s greatness. Instead of stress, you will thrive with positive energy.
Remember that, whether it’s fear or success, it’s all in our mind. And the thoughts that dwell in our minds lead to the type of life we lead. Do you want to live a life of fear and worry, or a life of joy, confidence and success? If it’s the latter, use your positive thoughts to destroy the fearful ones. Then put a smile on your face and live the life you were meant to live. You have nothing to fear, and you have everything to gain. Enjoy the blessings : )
