Want to hack your self worth with these weekly tips?
So, how did the: "One tip to hack your negativity into positivity" weeks tip go? This was 5 weeks ago, so you've had enough time to work with it...
You may not receive them weekly, but I do promise to follow through with a weekly tip, whenever possible!
So you're fearful and anxious?
When feeling and believing that we are powerless to change anything in our world, fear can trap us to exaggerate and accentuate this. Fear in some cases is healthy, as it keeps us safe, however, the majority of our fears throughout the day are completely irrational and unhealthy.
Normal Response to Fear
It is easy to become afraid of almost anything. Fear is generally, although not always, based on a negative experience with the object in question. For example, if you were attacked by a dog as a child, you may be afraid of dogs today. Sometimes fear is learned from someone else, such as a child who is afraid of spiders, because of her mother's reactions.
Whatever the object of fear, you may become distressed or uncomfortable when you confront that object. If you are afraid of flying, for example, you may become jittery or anxious when you board an airplane. You may self-medicate, perhaps by indulging in a preflight drink, but you are able to manage your symptoms and get on with your life. You may prefer to travel by car or train but will fly when it is necessary or practical.
Write a list for each of the below:
* Differentiate between genuine fears and unfounded fears as nearly everything we fear in a day is not life threatening and quite irrational;
* Challenge your anxieties with facts;
* Look at your success rate with past challenges; * Consider all the things you manifest in a day and recognise your strength and power;
Face your fears.
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear." - Nelson Mandela
* Learn to step outside your comfort zone;
* Start with small bite sized challenges as this will help to build your self-esteem;
* Complete and conquer as many things as you can, as this will grow your self-esteem and you will begin to prove your fears wrong;
* Learn to step outside of your comfort zone.
I look foward to sharing tip 4 in another weeks post.
