How To Fine-tune Your Brain To Overcome Fear And Achieve Your Dreams
Failure, disappointments, and challenges are part of life. Sometimes we need to fail and hit rock bottom in order to succeed. Due to life’s difficulties and uncertainties, financial challenges, and limited career options, people tend to choose the safe course. Fear of failure poses risk because it hinders you in achieving higher form of success. People often underestimate their talents and abilities to bounce back from failure so they miss big opportunities in life. If you are able to accept the biggest failures and stand up and keep pushing, then spectacular success awaits you. The following techniques can fine-tune your brain to overcome fear of failure and achieve the desires of your heart:
- Weigh risk versus opportunity.
People are scared to fail thinking they won’t be able to overcome it. Not taking risks make you miss out on opportunities that can create a drastic change in your life and bring success. Take every opportunity as it comes, risky or not and aim for personal growth. The problem with not taking risk is not being able to exploit your talents and the opportunities given to you. You can live a simple, stress-free life but you are unlikely to create something big that will have a huge impact on the generations to come.
- Seek for alternatives.
The biggest fear is the fear of the unknown. Understand your fear. Research on the possible outcomes of every actions so you can weigh the advantages and the disadvantages. Sometimes your fear is worse than the actual consequences of your actions. Take time to know what you’re dealing with and stop blindly following your beliefs without actually knowing the truth. Analyzing the situation, understanding the risk and the benefits of your actions will help you make rational decisions.
- Think of the worst case scenario and plan on how to deal with it.
Preparing for the worst is not bad. It doesn’t make you pessimistic either. If you prepare for the worst case scenario, it will be faster for you to bounce back even after you hit rock bottom. If you got fired from your job, how long will it take you to stop sulking and start doing what is necessary to get another job? Sometimes bad things happen when you least expect them so it’s better to be safe than sorry. If you have a clear picture on how you will respond to certain situations or how they are going to affect you, then you can easily find a solution even to your worst problem.
- Challenge your subconscious mind to think positively.
How people see you is often a reflection of who you are inside. If you think you are a failure, then people will see and treat you as one. If you want people to respect you and believe in what you can do, start by making yourself believe that you can do anything regardless of how difficult it is. Believe in yourself if you want others to believe in you.
- Stop making excuses.
Just do what you have to do. Don’t blame your fears for your failures. Claim your power over your life. You want a happy life? Go get it. Replace negative energies with positive magnetism to attract success and happiness. Don’t waste another moment of sticking to the weak and fragile you. Be the you that you’ve always dreamed of and let the time be now!
