My Fear

Growing up I have always had different fear of lives, I have always had these big dreams of my future that sometimes I get scared to relate my dreams with people just because of the thought of them not understanding me or them telling me this won’t be able to take effect. I had my fears also I thought my talent were to small for my big dreams and I have always try to ignore working towards my dreams just because of my fear of not been able to achieve them.

I remember one day my mother sat me down and talk to me about how it is not bad to have a big dreams which is the way to attain the desirable greatness, she said in fact dreaming is the first step to success all I have to do is catch fun and not take things too hard then with focus and a lot of hard work and motivation I will be able to gain the greatness of my life and that was the day I felt I had to drop my fear in life if I want to be able to attain greatness in my life.

I work on how I can turn my fear to motivate my greatness, I seek ideas and I was able to gather up the most necessary and favorable inspiration which help me turn my fear to greatness. Here are few tips I applied:

I wrote down the consequences of giving in to fear: You know the things that happens when you give your heart to fear, I note the things that might start taking effect in my life after I had the conversation of fear with my mother, I was able to pick point the bad effect of putting too much fear in my heart and I was wrote them down for remembrance purposes, these is one the first step I took into turning my biggest fear into my greatest achievement.

I wrote down what I will gain from overcoming fear: When I take the risk of achieving greatness in life what are the things which I might gain at the end of the day, I think about it and I started seeing light at the end of tunnel, I knew if I take step into turning all these fear into great use, I might be smiling to the bank soon, which is one of the things that eventually took place.

I was able to identify my fear: I was able to identify my fear; you need to know when you identify your fear you are one step closer to overcoming them. You need to find the origin of your fear before you are able to overcome them.

I embrace fun and happiness: Sometimes people give in to their fear that it might start eating up their body and soul. Know that when you let go of all happiness and you are always overshadowing with the thought of fear you might not be able to overcome them. I remember when I had so many fears in my life, I was still very cheerful and fun to be around, even till date when I had to deal with fear I still go about with other fun things, I am very attached to playing video games from Fortnite to PUBG and many more and presently am trying to be best PUBG mobile player. Even in my fears I still manage to be cheerful.
