One of the biggest obstacles to change is overcoming fear. Fear can be rooted in many things such as fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear of rejection, and even fear of disappointing others to name but a few.
Whenever we are faced with change, we encounter resistance. Sometimes we immediately recognize the source of that resistance and other times we don’t. Oftentimes, this is because of an underlying fear. This is perfectly normal. The curious thing though, is this phenomenon even happens when we are the ones responsible for creating the change to ourselves!
We all have difficulty overcoming fear – it’s completely normal!
Resistance often manifests itself through procrastination. The lack of taking action is a form of resistance to change. When there is an underlying fear, we cope by not moving forward. But alas, don’t despair! There are ways you can begin taking action by overcoming fear.
Katie Freiling explains this mindset shift very well in this video. I am sharing this with you because I find Katie’s examples are those many of you may actually experience in your own Lifestyle Face Lift journey. So they are very pertinent and very powerful. Enjoy!
Overcoming Fear and Taking Action
Putting Overcoming Fear into Practice
If you find yourself in a situation that you are procrastinating and not taking action, try these steps:
- Ask yourself why? You may uncover that the reason for inaction is rooted in a fear. You must firstly figure out what that fear is.
- Once you’ve identified what that is, overcoming fear can be achieved by taking a step back and looking at it from the perspective of what will be the outcome of your inaction. Will you be happy by not moving forward? Can you live with the status quo? You will probably find that your initial fear of taking action pales in comparison to your reality of NOT taking action!
