Overcoming fear: Strategies For Facing Fear and Overcoming Anxiety


Fear is a powerful emotion. It can stop you from achieving your dreams, it can prevent you from taking action, and it can keep you from making progress in your career or personal life. It’s also an energy source that if used correctly, will take you to the next level of success.

Recognize the fear

Fear is a natural part of being human and has been around for thousands of years. It’s not just an instinctive response to danger, but also a way for us to protect ourselves from harm. Fear is a signal that something is wrong and needs attention or action. Fear can also be an effective motivator when it comes time for us to take risks or step outside our comfort zone in order to achieve something bigger than ourselves–like doing well at work or getting out of debt!

However, fear can also be debilitating if left unchecked: when we allow fear-based thoughts and feelings to hold us back from living our best lives by keeping us stuck in old patterns that don’t serve us anymore (and may never have), they rob us of joyous experiences like travel or relationships with new people who enrich our lives in unexpected ways

Is this a fear that is preventing you from achieving great results in your life?

Fear is a feeling of uncertainty and danger. It’s the feeling that you’re not ready, or that you don’t have enough power to face a situation. Fear is also an emotion that can be triggered when we feel overwhelmed by our circumstances, as well as when we feel powerless to change them.

The more we understand how fear works within us and around us, the easier it will be for us to overcome its negative effects on our lives–and even use it as a tool for achieving great results!

Identify the cost of not facing your fear:

The cost of not facing your fear is far greater than the cost of doing so.

If you don’t face your fear, it will continue to control your life. You’ll never achieve your goals and dreams because they’ll always feel too big or out of reach–but they aren’t! Your potential is limitless; if only we could free ourselves from our own limiting beliefs about what’s possible for us and how much we can achieve in life.

If you don’t face your fears, then there is no way that I can tell anyone else how easy it was for me (or them) when they come asking what was involved with overcoming anxiety or depression or any other mental health issue that may be holding them back from their full potential as human beings on this planet Earth. And who wants that? No one! Not even me…

If you run away from your fear, what will happen?

If you run away from your fear, what will happen?

  • You will never feel like you have achieved anything.
  • You will always feel like you are missing out on something.
  • You will never feel like you have lived up to your full potential.
  • And most importantly, if we look at it from a spiritual perspective: If we do not face our fears, they become bigger than us and define who we think we are as people!

How will this affect you in 5 years? 10 years? What are the costs and benefits of facing your fears now?

You’re a grown-to-be-strong individual, so please stop letting fear hold you back. It’s time to face your fears and get out of your comfort zone. If you don’t do it now, when will you? The longer you wait, the harder it will be for you later on in life.

You need to ask yourself: “How will this affect me in 5 years? 10 years?” What are the costs and benefits of facing my fears now? How would I feel about myself if I didn’t face them? How will this affect my career/career prospects; family relationships; friendships; health – mental & physical (e..g stress levels); self esteem etc…

What are the benefits of facing your fears now?

If you’re facing your fears now, you may be wondering what the benefits are. Here are some reasons why it’s worth taking on your anxiety:

  • You will feel better about yourself. Facing your fears makes you stronger and more confident in yourself, which helps build self-esteem and leads to greater happiness overall.
  • You’ll be able to do more with your life. When we avoid things out of fear, our lives become smaller and less fulfilling because we aren’t pushing ourselves beyond what we think is possible for us at any given time (or ever). By facing our fears head-on and learning how to manage them effectively through techniques like exposure therapy or mindfulness meditation techniques such as breathing exercises , we can break down barriers that hold us back from accomplishing goals or doing things that really matter in life

Change the way you feel about yourself

You can also ask yourself how the person who you become by facing this fear will change the way you feel about yourself, and how that will have positive effects on your career, family, relationships and self esteem.

How will I feel about myself?

Will I be proud of myself for facing my fears? Will I be more confident in myself as a person? Will it give me more confidence in my abilities as an employee or family member so that I am able to do my job/raise children better than before? What are some other ways that having overcome this fear might affect other aspects of my life positively (e.g., health)?

Fear can be an energy source if you use it to create massive results.

If you’re willing to face your fears, you will find that they are not as powerful as they seem. And once you’ve faced them, they won’t be able to hold any power over you anymore.

One of the best ways to conquer fear is to face it head-on. Take some time every day and identify what makes you afraid, and then do something about it. For example, if you’re afraid of public speaking, go out and volunteer to give a speech at your local library.


We all have fears that hold us back from achieving great things in our lives. It’s time for you to take action and face your fears head on. Take the first step by identifying what your fear is, then work backwards and find ways to overcome it!
