Fear can stop you following your desire, it can strangle your dreams and leave you stuck behind the bars of your ego prison.

However when you begin to dissect fear, you realise its just an emotion, e-motion, it’s energy in motion and energy can be moved.   Of all the emotions fear is instinctual and can rise up when your very survival is threatened.

Fear can be inherited and when you look at your stories you may realise you are sabotaging yourself by holding onto someone else’s fear!

1  Fear You Won’t Be Heard

Everyone has the right to be heard.

It’s good to remember that you are one or two steps ahead of someone else in your journey in your life and, at the same time there are others who are one or two steps ahead of you.

AND you don’t have to tell your story to everyone.  You can decide to tell your story only to those who have earned the right to hear it.  That’s why surrounding yourself with supportive people is so important.  We can learn from each other, we can support each other and most of all we can offer a space for each other to be heard.    It doesn’t mean you have to agree with everything you hear it just means you allow space for someone to be heard.

2  Fear of Falling Flat on Your Face

It is out of our biggest failures that some of our best results arise.   But if you suffer from a strangling fear of falling flat on your face finding out where this is coming from is a start.  What old story is telling you, you will fall?  Are you trying to live up to someone else’s standards?

Ask yourself what’s the best that could happen?  Maybe you will realise that this fear is not founded on anything solid.  If fear is built on an unstable foundation once you tune into it, it will crumble.

3 Fear of criticism

What is it about criticism that frightens you so much?  Have you such a tight hold on your own beliefs that you have become closed minded?

Sometimes criticism, so long as it is constructive criticism can help you glean golden nuggets of information that can help you break through your own inner glass ceiling of what you can do.   Could you allow yourself use constructive criticism as a catalyst for change for the better?

The first step is always the hardest … but the gain is always worth it.
