Overcoming Fear?

FDR’s famous quote “we have nothing to fear but fear itself” was a call to action for a country that was in the midst of the Great Depression and people paralyzed by fear.

Today, the U.S. is not in any economic abyss, but the quote is just as applicable as it was back  in the 1930’s.  The people have the same fear of not knowing what is to come. And the question is what action should people be taking?

You see, our fear can drive us positively or the opposite.  It can steer us away from danger or deter us from taking risk. Either way, we can’t ever overcome our fear completely.  What bold action will overcome fear enough to lead us forward?

That you will have to answer it yourself.  But do not let the fear overtaken you.

How do you confront your fear? Do you face it head on or try to avoid it as much as possible?  What advise would you share?

    When I second guess myself in the moment, it’s always a fatal move. In times of fear, we have to trust our first instinct. I usally avoid it until I HAVE to face it but have found that simply embracing the changes allows me to come to acceptance faster.

    Well said. We are sometimes our own worst enemies. Learning to trust our instincts is a gradual process but wise move for the long haul. Because in the moment of fear, we will always have ourelves to fall back on.
