Are you letting fear control your life? You may feel that you are not afraid of anything or you may realize that you are making decisions in your life everyday based on fear. Are you tired of living in fear. Do you know what you are afraid of? Most people will tell me that they are not sure or even if they have experienced panic attacks they do not realize that it is fear based.
First, let me say that fear is one of the biggest motivator in life. If you watch television commercials you can not ignore the fact that the advertise gear the commercials to appeal to our need for health and safety. We make purchases for everything from automobiles to organic foods based on wanting to be safe. Fear sells stuff!
Secondly, fear motives people to change, both positively and negatively. For example, if you are over weight and the doctor tells you that you have a high risk of heart disease you may decide that it is time to change your diet. This can be a positive change. However, if you are in a relationship and you refuse to address the dysfunction in the relationship because of the fear of abandonment, that is negative motivation.
Finally, fear can cause you to run, fight or freeze. None of these are appealing when we think about our lives. You can run away from everything that scares you and you can fight every battle but more than anything...you can not freeze. You can not let fear keep you from moving forward.
