FEAR

Fear is something that can cause us to live a life on the back foot, cautious of every step that we take because we are afraid of what might happen if we move forward and take action.

In this topic we will be taking a look at some fears that many of us face, and discuss how we can overcome these and become fearless, ready to live a life where we are not held back by our fears, but are ready to push forward knowing that our best life is on the other side of our fears.

You may have heard the term "fight or flight." When you are faced with something that terrifies you, what is your automatic response; to stand and fight, or to start running as fast as you can, as far as you can. If we were to look at fear as an acronym, F.E.A.R. it can be said that we have two choices;

Fear Everything And Run, or Face Everything And Rise.

Whatever we choose will not only impact our life, but also the lives of those aroundus now, and for generations to come. We have a choice that will be passed on to the next generation.

FEAR OF THE FUTURE

NOTES //

When we think about fear, what usually comes to mind is the fear of snakes, or the fear of heights, or the fear of clowns. And let’s face it, there are some fears that we do laugh and joke about; hearing someone scream because they see a mouse running though the London Underground can be entertaining.

However, there are other fears that will stop us from stepping into our potential and becoming all that we can be.

STEAL YOUR FUTURE

We must not allow fear to steal our future.

There is so much life ahead for each and every one of us, but sometimes it is our fears that prevent us from stepping into opportunities and taking on challenges that are placed before us.

"Never let your fear decide your future."

START YOUR FUTURE

What if your best life is on the other side of your fears?

The life you are living right now may only be small in comparison to the life you could be living if fear didn’t hold you back. What if today you were to kick-start your best life by deciding that your fears are not going to hold you back any more, and let tomorrow be the beginning of your fearless future.

FEAR OF FAILURE

NOTES //

Why do we fear failure?

Is it because our reputation is on the line? Is it because of the affect it could have on the plans we have for our future? Is it because we are afraid of how people will react?

When we walk into an exam, we can so easily have the fear that we will fail. Or when we go for our driving test, we can fear that we will fail. Anything that pushes us out of our comfort zone, or challenges us to give more of ourselves, comes ‘free’ with a risk of failure.

GO FOR THE EXPERIENCE

Ever go somewhere for the experience? You can watch a football game in the comfort of your own home, or you can trek for miles to get to the stadium to watch it, all for "the experience."

There are some things we can choose to experience, but there are other things that just happen, like failure.

Failure is something none of us ever want to experience, but something we will all experience. If we fear it, then it will prevent us from stepping out and taking risks. It will cause us to always take the safest option in everything we do.

KEEP ON GOING

"Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm." - Winston Churchill

When we experience failure, it can leave us feeling down. But if we embrace the fact that we may fail, then we can live a life where we take on new and exciting opportunities, knowing that if we do fail, the best way we can respond is to get back up and go again.

QUESTIONS //

one //_ have you ever experienced failure?

two //_ do you think it is good for us to fail?

three //_ how do we get up and go again following failure?
