Have you ever sat down and realized that you were meant to do more with your life? Are you a creative thinker that is confined to a 9 to 5 cubicle somewhere to make ends meet, in order to maintain yourself and your family? The time has come to recognize that Fear is your greatest enemy. It is important to emphasize that I am not talking about that natural life-saving action along with a major boost of adrenaline that occurs when you are faced with a wild animal or a major threat. I am referring to the fear people live with every day. Fear is your greatest enemy. It has been said that fear is “sand in the machine of life.” Fear is not an asset. Rather, it is a hindrance. You cannot pass through an open door with fear; instead, you remain confined to the hallway. Fear does not allow you to put your best foot forward; it keeps both of your feet firmly planted on the ground. Today’s psychology is, “Learn to live with your fears”, “Embrace your fears”, and “Everybody has fears.” I agree; lots of people do have fears, I was one of them. Many people are learning to live with their fears and embrace them, but is it normal to have so many fears? Fear is a complex emotion that has many facets and aspects. Among the most significant is the fear of what others think. Fear of what others will think influences how people act within their daily lives, it affects how people say things, and even dictates the purchases they make. Is this normal? Often, people join clubs or organizations because they fear that if they do not, others might perceive them negatively. Do you consider this to be normal? Often, people speak and say things in a specific way in order to avoid the risk of saying the wrong thing in front of the wrong audience. The question is, how normal is that? Oftentimes, people purchase items out of fear that they will not measure up to those around them. And so it goes on and on. Regardless of whether such behavior is considered to be normal, it is extremely draining. There are three simple steps to eliminating fear, no matter what the circumstance is.
- Start by realizing that the universe is a friendly place and that it loves you unconditionally. There is nothing that can separate you from this love. Nothing! It is this love for you that never changes.
- The second point is to keep in mind that nothing good ever comes from fear. Fear holds us back, and while we need to be aware of its warnings, we should not allow it to manipulate us. It is important to remember that fear is often defined as ‘False Evidence Appearing Real’, so do not let it control you.
- Third, make decisions based on what is best for you, not what may or may not appear to be acceptable to others. You will never be able to please everyone, so stop trying. You will never, ever be right in everyone’s eyes, so stop attempting. Always ask yourself, “Why am I making this decision?” when making a decision. Is it a result of fear? Now is the time for you to make decisions based solely on what you think is right and best for your life.
You can now choose to live a life without fear or judgement. Live your life on your terms with what is meant for you, in divine order.
