Thoughts on life, spirit and joy... by Trina Ramsey

Letting Go of Fear

Fear is one of the most pervasive forces in our lives.  It can cripple people and steal their joy.  It can stop us from embracing our true purpose – the reason God created us to contribute to this world.  Fear can also be a strong motivator.  Many achievement oriented people use fear of failure to propel them to success.  Today I encourage you to examine your relationship with fear.  I have a few questions for you.

  1. What decision are you postponing or procrastinating about, because of fear?
  2. Try to think about BOTH the consequences of acting AND the consequences of not acting.  What do you see?
  3. What’s the worst that can happen?  How much can you live with if that actually occurred?
  4. What is the cost of NOT ACTING?  Be real with yourself – think about the emotional, economic and other factors that will be affected by not taking a step.
  5. What’s ONE SMALL STEP you can take to confront your fear and do it anyway?

 

What's next for you?
