There is nothing to fear but fear itself.

I realize that when I allow my fear to control me, I miss out on opportunities that can open the doors to a much better life. Therefore, I let go of my fears and their consequences.

I no longer allow fear to dictate my decisions. I am perfectly capable of weighing whether or not I am equipped to take on certain situations.

I evaluate the requirements for the task that I wish to take on and compare them to my skill set. If it is a good match, I chase the opportunity. If not, I simply prepare until I am able to successfully tackle the challenge.

I believe in myself and in my abilities. I am done with taking the backseat to my life! I am pushing fear to the passenger’s side and taking control of the wheel.

There is nothing to fear but fear itself. In a sense, fear is similar to the boogeyman. It talks a big talk, but when push comes to shove, fear shrivels down into nothingness.

My fear, not my lack of ability, can cause me to remain at a standstill in my life. Fear is only at ease within a predefined comfort zone. Anything that is outside of the comfort zone sets off an internal alarm. I ignore that alarm and go forth outside my comfort zone with confidence.

Today, I look fear in the face and tell it to take a hike. I am the boss of my mind. I banish fear from my mind, body, and soul.

Self-Reflection Questions:

2. Are my fears rational or do they develop due to lack of control?
3. How can I productively overcome my deepest fears?
