When you feel afraid

This week in class we’re talking about something that affects all of us at one point or another and that’s fear. Sometimes fear can be our greatest motivator and other times it’s our greatest obstacle.
Dale Carnegie, a world-famous self-improvement specialist, said “If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit at home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” What I think he’s alluding to is that when we face something that scares us, we’ll sometimes sit around and worry about it, never moving forward but continually treading water in an ocean of doubt and negative feelings.
In the martial arts, we face challenges all the time but what helps us is that it’s in a controlled environment. We know that if the outcome doesn’t go as planned, we’ll face some form of consequence, but it won’t be the end of the world. Because we face these challenges and we become more accustomed to dealing with fears it enables us to grow beyond what we currently are and experience new levels of success.
This week, as you go through the week, take a look at what fear is holding you back or imposing itself on you and begin to take small steps towards facing it. Perhaps ask questions, read a book or take any other step that you can to face it and watch how it becomes less imposing and more possible to overcome.
