Isn’t it ironic how people fear the things they want the most in life? People fear things that they know will help them move forward. Most people cage themselves to their own kind of world even though they know there’s so much more out there. They often blind themselves to the comfort that they feel in order to avoid their fears. However, are those fears really needed to be called as fears?
There are a lot of fears that you will encounter in life but here are some of the most important fears you need to eliminate:
- Fear of being yourself
No matter what you do, not all people will like you. People have different preferences so just be yourself and ignore criticisms. Stop the fear of being yourself because at the end of the day, what matters most is that you are able to do things you like most.
- Fear of Criticisms
There will always be people that will criticize your every move. Being criticize means you are doing something right and you’re on the right track. You’ve got to get over the fear of being criticize in order to be a much better person than you are yesterday.
- Fear of Making Mistakes
None of us are born perfect and flawless. All of us make mistakes and you have to accept the fact that people are bound to make mistakes. Mistakes are proof that you tried and that you are improving as a person.
If you are one of those people, ask yourself. How long will you settle on the good situation you are in right now if that situation can be a lot better?
The fears we don’t face will only stop us from moving forward and will become our limit. Do not limit yourself to the things you know can help you in the future. Do not let your fears ruin your dreams. As what the famous quote said: “Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.” Free yourself from the fears that haunt you every time you encounter them. Give yourself a peace of mind.
“May your choices reflect your hopes and not your fears. “ – Nelson Mandela
