Why fear is a compass to your greatness
Fear is a compass
Today our main concern is to explain the fear. Unlike others, I will explain fear as a compass for your goals, dreams, and achievements in life. When you observe your worries day in and out, you look for ways to improve your experience because fear indicates something is wrong in the system. Your body system works entirely by your mind as you installed your concern in it; you can uninstall it too; your fears are intangible. You can’t see it, but you can feel it.
When you face your greatest fear, you set free yourself forever. Fear is a dream killer, but fear is there to strengthen your dreams and make them happen in reality. I like this quote,’’ walls are there not to stop you but are there to know how bad you want to break the barrier to reach your destination.’’
From a psychological perspective, fears are emotional reactions, which tell us important information about us. That we fear things, we love the most. Take an example, there is a person you love for years, but fear of rejection paralyzes you to ask him/her out.
In my life’s journey, I have learned that fears are a compass that shows you how to discover your inner self, the brave self. Who doesn’t fear anything or anyone because he knows that e is more significant than fears? Sometimes mind tricks you and says repeatedly that you have worth, you don’t deserve what you desire. Say to your mind always,” shut up!”
Your past has thought you fear your present is the result of it; choose fearlessness over fear today so that your future doesn’t bite you again. Fear slowdowns your speed. However, it shows you how to conquer yourself without losing your temper. You create it, and you can destroy it too because it is intangible. Your fears show you your real assets on which you have to rely on for your whole life.
When you are angry and frustrated when you lose all your assets, and you look all around, and no one is there to help you, motivate you to say something to you which encourages you. When you only listen to naysayers, the outer ones, and most importantly, the inner ones that tell you that you are not worthy for anyone or anything.
You cannot pursue your goals in your ambitions because you didn’t achieve anyone before. When you look into the eyes of your greatest fears, they will vanish because they can’t stand I front of your inner strength, which you are not aware of right now.
If you want to risk success, you have to face your fears because there is no other way to win in life’s battles. I am here to say to you that you are powerful beyond your limits. You don’t know about this because you don’t take time to know yourself- all of the successful people in any field were those who feared the most that’s why they achieved the most.
The gift of facing fear is greater than the fear itself. No one believes you anymore because you have failed again and again, and you are continuing this journey but don’t stop this journey, my friend. Each fear says to you something important about you, which no one else can tell you because no one else knows you more than you.
When you love the journey and take every failure and fear as a chance to improve when you no longer attach yourself to an outcome, you shine like a star. This pain, frustration, and disorientation are not forever; this will be for an hour, a day, and a month or for the year but not more than this. So don’t lose courage and dignity.
One day after years of this fear conquered, you will be glad and laugh at these fears and will say to you how crazy you were when you viewed these fears as mountains while, in reality, they were tiny pebbles. Don’t run from your fears; you will develop yourself in the process that others will see as an example after fears and rejections.
Don’t you believe it? I was in childhood fear of dogs due to classical conditioning by combining excellent and bad experiences with dogs. Good with pet dogs and bad with stranger’s dogs, bitten several times, frightened and running away. Once while in primary school, one of our teachers told us that dog only bits those who fear them.
It made an impression on me, one day while passing the way, a big bull terrier dog barked at me and started running towards me; my mind found me in fight or flight mode and waited for a moment to decide what to do. I told myself if I run away again, I will always be running.
So, I decided to fight, and then I started running towards the dog; when we reached significantly closer, I shouted; yeah! And stopped, we both stopped. He looked into my eyes, and he saw no fear there; he looked left and right then went to the other side. I interpreted his silence and surrender as he might be saying that your courage saved you forever, and we will not be able to frighten you again.
From that day up to this day, I have no fear of dogs anymore because I learned that victory is only for those who chose to conquer their fears. So, fears are your compass to show you how to be victorious.
