The question people tend to ask is “how to overcome my fears?” The answer to this question varies from person to person. There are more than one method to conquer your fears and you have to find out what works for you.
In this article, I will give you some of the methods you can use to reduce and hopefully conquer your fears.
How to conquer your fears
Face your fears
One of the best methods that I personally use to conquer my fears is though facing them. When I used to be afraid of failure, I used to avoid getting outside of my comfort zone. Questions like “What if I fail?” What if I don’t succeed? What if it doesn’t work out?” were always on my mind.
I used to sit and keep worrying. Then when I reach a point where worry and anxiety has reached its highest level, I would then make a firm decision to go with the flow and face my fear by taking action.
I would ask myself “If I sit and keep worrying, is it going to change anything?” The answer is of course, “No.” Then, I would say to myself “Since being afraid is crippling me, how can I conquer it?” The usual answer that I come up with is “you have got to face your fear.”
This “firm” decision to face whatever I’m afraid of has helped me conquer many fears. Not only that, but it also has helped me reduce worry and anxiety extensively in daily life.
One step at the time
When you want to learn how to conquer your fears, realize that it is one step at the time. You can’t just decide to conquer your fear and eliminate that fear completely from the first time. It is a step by step process.
For instance, when I wanted to face my fear as I mentioned in the previous example, I didn’t succeed from the first time. I had to practice and fail many times until I got used to facing my fear directly.
Look for the lessons
Whenever I decide that I want to conquer a fear that I have in my own life, I ask myself a few important questions such as:
1. What benefit will I gain once I conquer my fear?
2. What does this fear trying to teach me about myself?
3. How can this fear impact my life?
Once I focus on the advantages that I will gain, I begin to see the benefits which will help me grow in me daily life.
Next time you have a fear that you want to eliminate, begin to face it and look for the lessons the fear is trying to teach you. By facing your fears, you will be on your way to conquering your fears slowly and steadily.
