Scared thinking about the future or a job interview or deadlines? Everyone gets anxious about these things, but it should not be something to be scared of. Such fear needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Excessive fear is never reasonable and can clog your success. Read on to know a few tricks to conquer your fear.
1. Compose, Enact, and Role Play
Everyone must have come across stage fear at least once in their lives. Did you know? The fear of talking in front of a group tops the list of many surveys, even leaving behind the fear of death! Because of fear, denying a presentation or not doing it up to the mark brings substandard to your career. Are you worried about your presentation next week? Prepare your content and practice harder by role-playing in front of a mirror. Trust us; this method works the best to overcome stage fear.
2. Distinguish Fear from Prudence
To overcome fear, it is essential to distinguish between fear and prudence. Fear is irrational and is the biggest enemy of success. For example, being afraid to start a new business because you cannot face the negative outcome is unreasonable. In contrast, prudence is rational, like being afraid of selling illegal products or products that can harm others. Do not hold back your success by confusing fear with sense.
3. Courage Matters
Despite the hardships you face in a relationship or work, being secure is what makes you cling to it. Please be consoled to hear it from us, ‘you are on the wrong track.’ Deprive security and reinstate it with the goodness of courage. For your own good, throw away your security concerns, adopt courage, and enjoy the fruit of success.
4. Relabel Fear With Excitement
Life is a roller-coaster ride. In roller coaster, a feeling of ecstasy always succeeds the fear occurring before the ride. Just like it, despite all the ups and downs, considering life as a journey of excitement to face the new challenges makes it easier to tame fear.
5. Treat Fear as a Warning Sign
Consider fear as a spur to appropriate action. Afraid of things not under your control, like an economic breakdown? There is no point in holding onto fear when you can do nothing to stop it. So, focus on things you can control, like how to withstand or overcome it when it occurs. While for fear of things under your control, take the bold move and do what scares you.
A visit to a dentist, a thunderstorm, or losing someone all creates a sense of fear. But these should not interfere with your success in the long run. Sticking onto your anxiety about the possible happenings establishes a problem that needs early sorting out. Do not let fear put an end to your hustle!
