Psychology of Fears; The fear of the unknown

Death of creativity is only one thing- uncertainty. While today’s’ society will try to convince you that what you are doing doesn’t have any value. And you will lose your motivation- the fire inside you which pushes you to greatness. Fear doesn’t exist- it is only in your mind.

If you can create it you can destroy it too it is intangible. First time when you will do something you will feel it. But remember that your dreams, ideas, hope, and inspirations play a great role in shaping your life and imagination and visualization will clear up your way to you.

Although we say that there is no such thing as fear, whether it is of unknown, failure, rejection, success or anything else. But like people diagnosed with schizophrenia we have to believe that there is commanding power and someone is dictating his behavior, someone is talking without having any physical presence of others.

No one is believing him but if you want to treat him, you first establish a rapport and then accept that yes you are too seeing, listening and guided by unknown demons in your mind so that he or she can identify with you and you can devise your treatment plan from knowing the severity of disorder i.e., how intense, frequent and damaging and distressing condition of a client is.

Just the same pattern is applied by fearful persons. They have trained their minds to look for negativity, the worst case scenario. While in reality when you analyze any type of fear you will discover that at the bottom level ignorance and uncertainty exists. 

I want to share one story, once prisoners of war were heading to their prisons when the commander ordered his soldiers that to draw two lines in front of prisoners. On one side of a line was a dark curtain and on another line a shooting squad.

He gives a choice to prisoners they can either go ahead and cross the curtain or they can face shooting squad. Most of the prisoners choose shooting squad over the unknown curtain, while there was nothing behind the curtain. And those who went behind the curtain were given a chance to escape and live the lives they wished to live.

It is damaging your career, relationships, and education. If you are not curious, you lose the motivation to succeed. Uncertainty is a golden chance to grow you mentally, emotionally and spiritually. You have to wake up and give your life and success one chance and look behind the curtain, but remember my friend there is always good things after facing your fears. Be fearless my friend…
