Solution # 20 – JOURNALING
Any fear would have power when it is sitting inside the mind. The moment you take it out and go into the details like what you are believing in, what stories you are telling yourself, what emotions you are experiencing, etc then you will get the complete hold on your fear. In other words, you will get all the building blocks of fear. This solution is some what similar to “EXPERIENCE FEAR IN DETAIL” solution. But the difference with journaling is you are going to write it down in detail and hence the impact to bring awareness on fears is much higher. Also, when you write it down you would act as if you are watching some one else’s fear. When you watch the fear from outside it will look easy and some what funny. It is like feeling others fears does not make sense for you !!. Start typing about any thing that you are concerned about. Trust me with in 10 mins of journaling you will either find out what is holding you back and/or come up with a creative solution. Try it out today !!.
Solution # 21 – STRONG FAITH IN GOD/INVISIBLE FORCE
Huh..Does this sound like some religious preaching?. We often have tendency to ignore or call it as rubbish any thing we have not experienced yet. Having faith in God (or whatever equivalent) come into this category for so called rational thinkers. I am sure you know the extreme stories of doing unbelievable acts on the name of God. It could be fire walking, killing themselves, wars, recovering from a deadly disease (so called miracles) etc. How is it possible? Some people freeze even to give a small presentation to a group of unknown people. It is only possible when you completely outsource your fear/doubt to the other party (in this case God) and there is no other solution that is as powerful as this. In the first place there is no fear when you have strong faith. But rational thinkers would have problem with this outsourcing business. I think it is really worth to outsource when you don’t have the required capability. This can not be done theoretically and only possible through experience.
Solution # 22 – RE-WRITE YOUR STORY
This statement looks very boring and old. Right? Not really. Fear ideally should not exist if one has good knowledge in that specific area. Did you notice, you get angry and worried when you don’t know what you need to do about some problems or situations? Why? Because your brain does not know what to do and how to go about next. Hence it will try to ventilate through the emotions like anger and worry. Pick up the fear that is stopping you and making you uncomfortable and then study about it in detail. And talk to the people who have crossed the similar situations. You would gain good knowledge and there by you will be able to face the fear with power. It is real fun to dig deep into fear!!
