Fear & Fearlessness

Recently, I released the latest edition of Breaking Free - my monthly newsletter that offers tips on how to be the best you can be. This month we discuss fearlessness. Do you recognize the common fears that may be getting in your way every day? Many times we don't because "we've always been that way." Some of the common fears that often times unknowingly hold us back are:
  • Fear of Success
  • Fear of Failure
  • Fear of Change
  • Fear of Loss or Death
  • Fear of Self-Awareness or Introspection
  • Fear of Being Judged or Embarrassment
  • Fear of the Being Controlled / Out of Control
  • Fear of Trusting Others or Commitment

Do any of those resonate with you?

In many cases, we have feared something for so long that we don't even recognize that it is actually fear that is holding us back.

Here are a few symptoms that can be attributed to fear:

  • Procrastination, Laziness
  • Absentmindedness
  • Anxiety, Stress
  • Social Withdrawal, Distrust
  • Restlessness - always busy, busy, busy
  • Overanalyzing or Perfectionism
  • Inability to stay in the "Now"
  • Frustration, Guilt, Obligation

Do any of those resonate with you?
