Are you feeling crippled by your fears? We've all experienced the inhibiting feelings of fear at one point in our lives. Many live this way on a daily basis. We could be so much more than we're currently expressing, not because we are incapable or lack talent, but because we allow our fears to hold us back from doing the things we truly desire to do.
The following 3 steps give you a basic idea of how you can redirect your energy into courage.
Step #1 - Stopping feeding your fear
Whatever you focus on and fuel with your emotions begins to expand. Focusing on your fear attracts more of the same thoughts which are vitalized by your emotions. The more you feed your fear the bigger it grows allowing the crippling effects to overtake your life and hinder you from moving forward toward your goal.
Step #2 - Refocus your attention
Take your attention off of your fear, what could happen, because it's not happened yet. Most often what you're afraid of has not yet occurred. Therefore you have the opportunity to turn your attention from that which may occur that currently holds you captive to what you truly desire the outcome to be.
Step #3 - Redirect your energy
The energy, the emotions that you're feeding into your fear can be redirected into courage. Just think for a moment, how would you be if you had the courage to do the thing you're currently afraid of? The key word is 'be'. Because before you can act, you first must 'be' inside. It is your 'being' afraid that causes you to act in fear. The flip side would be, your 'being' courageous, feeling bold, would cause you to act your courage and boldness out.
Fear begins from within so it must be dealt with from within. Shift your internal energy through the way you're thinking into thoughts of courage.
