Face your fear
This is my entry for week 15 edition 1 which focuses on my greatest fear.
I want to acknowledge the management and participants of this contest. It's been awesome Every week with inspiring topics.
I believe that everyone has fear for one or two things by the nature of our make up but what we do when fear comes matters a lot. One of my mentors ever said face every of your fears. It could be fear of known or unknown, fear about future or present etc depending on an individual.
For me, the greatest fear is, the fear of the future. Most at times people are afraid of the future simply because of the kind of experience they either had in their past or present.
The future constitute of many things. Some of the fears of the future includes who to marry especially for the singles, how to actualise visions or life goals, how to be successful, as a student in exams, etc.
The future is pregnant and when such pregnancy is not properly nurtured it could be aborted because of fear. Some one defines fear as an acronym which stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. I Concord to this insight because every fear is a shadow of reality. Behind fear is the true identity of a thing. Fear could make a person lazy and unable to take risk in fulfilling life's goal. Most at times it comes in the name of procrastination.
How to overcome fear? There are many ways to overcome fear however I will share few. The first is to try and identify exactly what you are afraid of. Build confidence to confront your fear. Change the pattern of your thought (pessimistic to optimism). Read good books to boost your faith and confidence. Take one step at a time. Never be afraid of failure but keep trying. If you are a religious person kindly pray fervently to your God. You could get a mentor because what you are afraid of, could be what someone had passed through and overcame (learning by someone's experience).
No matter what your fear might be, you must learn to face it. To be successful and fulfilled in life, you must deal with fear especially of future in order to become a champion. The power to overcome fear is in you.
