Fear stops and courage moves us forward, personal management trainer says

Have you heard the acronym for fear? False Evidence Appearing Real and how many of us have been stopped in our tracks, because of it? Most people have fears of some sort or other, such as fear of being alone, of failure, of success, of changing jobs, or getting their needs met, yet not everyone lets their fears stop them. The key to working through the fear factor is to give the fears your full attention and consider exactly what it is you think or say about them. Fears can be endlessly reinforced if they’re spoken out loud or endlessly play in our heads, in our self ­talk tapes. Pick a fear that limits you and change your negative self ­talk to positive, can ­do talk. Make a conscious decision let the fear go by facing it and doing what it is that you have avoided or dreaded. Ask yourself ‘what is the worst thing that could happen if I did this?’ and simply do it. Have courage and see what happens. You may be pleasantly surprised by the results.
