Overcome Fear to Accomplish the Extraordinary

overcome, fear, worry“The history of the human race is the history of ordinary people who have overcome their fears and accomplished extraordinary things.”— Brian Tracy

 Are you worrying or experiencing fear on a regular basis? You are certainly not alone. Millions of people have become accustomed to having worry and fear as a regular part of their daily lives. Thinking about scary scenarios can be healthy when it helps us plan preventative measures, but persistently thinking about unlikely scenarios can cause worry and fear to balloon into an overwhelming problem.

The Effects of Worry and Fear

When worry or fear becomes too large in a person’s life, every part of his life is affected. That person may suffer from health issues; he may have trouble enjoying quality time with family and friends. His potential at work is limited. He may spend a lot of money in search of a solution. Negative emotions like fear literally drain your energy. Here are a few things to remember to keep a handle on worry and fear.

How To Overcome Worry and Fear

First, consider the fact that 95% of fears never materialize. They remind us to create contingency plans so that we’re not caught off guard, but we rarely have to use those plans. One way to remember this is to memorize the acronym for FEAR: False Expectations Appearing Real. Second, it is a fact that worrying accomplishes absolutely nothing! Worry happens when we obsess on a worst-case scenario. As long as the consideration is left in your head, it remains unsolved and refuses to leave. In any situation, simply face the worst case scenario. Ask yourself, what is the worst that could happen? Then, instead of worrying, form a plan in case the worst does happen. Accept that plan as a possibility for reality and then move on. Don’t let the limiting emotion of FEAR, or False Expectations Appearing Real, hold you back!
