FEAR. A four letter word holding so many back from achieving success in life.
It’s like a chameleon, sneaking up unexpectedly and holding you in a mental prison. It keeps you awake at night holding your dreams hostage. Fear shows up as a story of ‘what ifs’, ‘I can’t’, ‘I’ve never done it before’. So many irrational negative thoughts, illusion that torments, paralyzes, robbing you of happiness, health, success, financial freedom and the life you’re creating.
Many courageously dare to dream big yet hold themselves hostage by clinging to old routines, habits, old ways of thinking, doubts, worries, anxieties and fears. Therefore, it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy, a crazy cycle leaving you feeling out of control, stuck between where you are and where you want to be; a merry-go-round you can’t get off.
Is Fear Real?
The physical symptoms of sweaty palms, heart racing, drain you of energy, leaving you with little motivation.
So why do so many stay stuck?
When the pain of being stuck outweighs the pain it takes to grow and realize your dreams, one will remain stuck and suffer.
Our beliefs, addiction to what we know, what’s safe, our past experiences stop us from achieving true greatness in life.
Tips To Overcome Fear

Thoughts of uncertainty lead to feelings of fear. Fear is an emotional response to our thoughts, ultimately manifesting as signs of anxiety through our body.
Take pen to paper. Write out your fears.
Objectively, ask yourself are these based on:
