fear less living

 “Let a person rejoice when he is confronted with obstacles, for it means that he has reached the end of some particular line of indifference or folly, and is now called upon to summon up all his energy and intelligence in order to extricate himself, and to find a better way; that the powers within him are crying out for greater freedom, for enlarged exercise and scope.” -James Allen

Fear of the unknown stops many people right where they are.   The next step isn’t taken because of fear.  The footprints stop and then reverse direction when fear overtakes the senses.  

How do you live a fear less life?  How can you face your fears and melt them down (not necessarily away).

Marianne Williamson wrote, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”

What if you replaced the negative thoughts with positive affirmations?   “I am powerful” – say that – say it a few times.  “I am powerful.”

Start today, replace fear with your power.

  1. This is one emotion that has always puzzled me. Why people are afraid to even try! I admit to feeling fear of failure before attempting anything new, but that does not stop me from trying to get on with it. I do not put fancy words to it, but when it means putting bread on the table, I suppose people over come their fear.

  2. Fear of failure overrides the fear of success, hence people withdraw from taking the step forward.

    I can imagine that someone with the fear of heights may not want to overcome that fear because the fear itself is too great.

  3. Fear is a negative feeling and therefore sends out negative vibrations. We have to pass the fear and think of positive and success in everything we try or do. If it doesn’t work out it’s a great learning experience that gives us knowledge and insight.
