Overcome Fear and Trust the Process

In Mind Body Spirit by kimbrell1971@gmail.com%s Comments

Lately, I have been thinking a lot about how I can overcome fear. I am not talking about the fear that has me screaming like a girl when I see a spider, but the fear that holds me back from my true self.

Some people think I am fearless. I know my mom used to say I was not afraid of anything. I’m not sure it was bravery or just stupidity when I was younger. But now, while I try to live by the motto of “just do it” rather than analyze everything to death, I have let my fear get the best of me. So much so I am unfocused and unproductive.

I think the main reason for my fear is not trusting in the process and not having faith in the path GOD has chosen for me.

In 2 Timothy 1:7, it says, “For GOD did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love, and of self-discipline.” I know trust is what I learn when I am trying to overcome fear. I have the tools necessary to succeed as long as I believe in myself and HIM.

So every day I put my big girl pants on and bravely expand my comfort zone. I try to follow the three things below to help me remove fears so I may move closer to my dreams.

3 Steps to Overcome Fear

1. Setting Goals
In everything I do, I try to keep the end in mind. When planning a great lesson, organizing a trip, or just cleaning my house; knowing where I am going helps me accomplish it to the end. However, it is important that although I keep the end in mind; I do NOT live there. By defining my dream, I give it life.

The best way I know to set goals is to write it down and make a plan. I am a work in progress and am spending a lot of time developing a plan to bring clarity and hold me accountable.

2. Take Action

I try to take one step daily toward reaching my goals, even if it is only for five minutes. By taking baby steps, I do not overwhelm myself. I try to work in small chunks and know that anything worthwhile is worth DOING; not just playing lip service to it. I love this video someone shared with me in a Facebook group. It helps motivate me when I don’t “FEEL” like doing something.

While I know it is going to take more than five minutes a day to succeed in my business, I also know I started this business for a better life for my family and me. It takes a lot of hard work and hustle, but I can’t allow myself to get stuck. I must move forward every day.

3. Don’t listen to Negativity (I’m talking about MY Inner Voice)
I could easily let the little voice inside my head tell me I am not capable of achieving the life I want to live. But I have learned to tell the voice to “Shut the Hell Up.”

As long as I don’t compare myself to others, I am usually alright. Franklin Roosevelt said, “Comparison is the thief of joy.” Nothing could be truer. I have found myself feeling less than adequate more than once as I scroll through the pages of Facebook or find myself nestled in the corner at a social event. (If you know me you have seen me there.)

So I try speaking positive affirmations to help me. I like to say them over and over in the morning when I am walking.
