This basic truth has been said many times by many people through the ages. It is just the simple fact that fear is almost entirely mental. That’s not to say that fear is useless, it serves its purpose. But one shouldn’t consider fear to be the only scale on which to measure their actions.
Here, I take conquering fear to mean not the absence of fear, but the ability to do what needs to be done in spite of being fearful. This, to me, is the same as conquering an enemy, or overcoming an obstacle. The enemy still exists, the obstacle is still there, you have simply gone beyond needing to worry about these things. You have conquered them, not blasted them out of existence. Does that differentiation make sense?
Fear is that little something that lets us know that things are not going well. It is part of the fight-or-flight reflex that gives us that surge, giving us an edge for the next few moments.
Sometimes fear is a good thing. Without it, we might do really stupid, hurtful or even fatal things. How many jokes have someone saying “Hey, all! Watch this!”? As often as not, it’s their last words.
On the flip side, unreasoning fear is not a good thing. Being afraid of Tigers is a good thing if you live in an area where they roam. For most of us, Tigers aren’t that big of a worry. Being afraid of shadows or water or heights is one thing. But being afraid of them to the point where it impacts how you live your life is another thing entirely.
But first comes the hardest part of overcoming fear, the decision to overcome that fear.
Once that decision is made the process is quick, easy and empowering!!! Take back control of your life!
