What do you REALLY fear?

What do you fear?

Speaking in public:
Do you fear:
• Being laughed at?
• Not capturing audience attention?
• Getting nervous, forgetting what you have to say?
• Not being liked?
• Not speaking clearly?
• Having all eyes on you?

Applying for a new job?

Do you fear:
• Interviewing process?
• Not knowing how to describe what you do?
• Starting over?
• Learning new things
• Not getting what you deserve?

Going back to school
Do you fear:
• Starting over?
• Being an older student?
• Being stuck in old mentality?
• Not being able to learn?

We can go on and on, you can fear anything in life. The question is do you UNDERSTAND the true source of your fear?

Find what you fear and analyze it as I did above…….try to answer the questions to your fear. This will help you get clear and will allow you to work on reducing /eliminating that fear.

Give it a try. The worst thing that happens is that you LOSE your fear and REGAIN your confidence. Hey, you never know unless you try.


  1. Your final statement is advice that each of us needs, and most of us need it several times daily. How many little paths in our lives have we missed because we thought about loss instead of gain?

  2. Thanks for your comment. Indeed we miss many opportunities in life due to self-pity, doubts or other limiting thoughts. It's a true shame, yet as much as we can try to help each other, the person in need must need to change in order to survive.

    I know that for me, I could no longer continue as I was living, and needed to seek better.
