Many people who will read this may argue the points that are made, but I simply speak from experience and the experiences of others.
"Fear is nothing more than a dream."
Let's examine this statement for a moment...
Try for a moment to recall the last nightmare that had you awake in sweat dreading to fall back asleep. Maybe you were being chased by someone, falling to your death or maybe you dreamed that you're boyfriend/girlfriend or husband/wife was cheating on you. Whatever it was, it had you wake up afraid, angry or sad.
Can you recall what was going through your mind when you woke up? Can you also recall the feelings you had?
Tell me now, was that dream real? Did it really happen? Or was it a fabrication of your subconscious mind?
We both know that the dream or nightmare was not real, but it sure felt real in the moment, didn't it? Most of our fears and worries are exactly like this - a fabrication of our subconscious mind. It is False Evidence Appearing Real! Nothing more, nothing less.
Danger is absolutely real and I cannot argue that fact, but most of us have fears that limit us on a daily basis - holding us back from truly living our lives. We are stuck in a repeating dream fabricated by our subconscious mind and it is controlling our lives and keeping us playing small because in the moment it just seems so real.
I am here to tell you, once and for all, that 99% of the things you fear will never happen if you act in faith and simply face it dead on. You will reach greater success and happiness as you break down the barriers that have you bound. Fear is like a prison without walls, you have been conditioned to believe that there is an invisible fence ready to shock you when you take a step out of the box, but in reality, there never was.
I suggest you do one thing; challenge your fears. When you are confronted with a decision or a circumstance that doesn't pose any real life or death danger, that you challenge it and go for it! Take a shot! Do the best you can and you'll soon realize that most of the things you fear are simply a figment of your imagination.
I believe in you and know you have everything within you right now to reach your own personal greatness. Take action today with something that you've feared. Challenge it and put it to the test. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised by the results.
