What Are You Afraid Of?

Everyone is afraid of something and unfortunately what you are scared of is a master over you,it makes you feel timid and limit you,it serve as a wall in your life shielding you from what await you at the other end, so what are you afraid of ?.

Generally there is this thing called the fear of the unknown because what you know,you have control over it, I won’t go into listing what people are afraid of but you know what fear is it you are struggling with.

As a result of fear some have judge the outcome of things before they even tried it, some of us have remained in that box because we are afraid of what is outside,the greatest enemy we have is not the one outside but the one within, the voice in our head causing us doubt,telling us how we are not good enough or worthy of love or worthy enough, the voice in our heads constantly telling us we will never make it,that voice telling us if others didn’t,we won’t. when there is no enemy within then there is no enemy outside that can defeat you because you are what you say you are,people don’t have a say in your life until you permit them and you have not failed until you tag not getting what you wanted at that time a failure.If we learn to understand that we must face obstacles,failure,criticism and trials at one point or the other in our life then we will live better life preparing to face at each point this obstacles because if you are afraid of challenges,criticisms and obstacles then just know that you won’t live and grow because opportunities come with obstacles,there are things you won’t discover until you try them and sometimes try them over and over again.

The mistake we make most times is thinking that we don’t need to upset anyone or expect everyone to accept us or what we are doing but the truth is when you have a dream people won’t agree with you,sometimes people won’t even believe in you until the see the result so work towards that and in doing that you must get ready to piss people up. John Maxwell said”if you are not making mistakes then you are not risking enough,no one is asking you to be perfect but just try,mistake are meant to build and teach you,You don’t have to let this fear limit you from your goals instead use it as a reason to become more careful.

The only thing limiting you from your life biggest dream success is fear, don’t be scared to let the light in you out,let me ask you this, is it not better to try a thing than not try at all? some of us have become insignificant because we scared of trying new things. if you don’t face your fears you would never know what stuff you are made up of. The bottom line is, fear is internal, make a daily commitment on working on yourself, believing in yourself,empowering yourself and challenging those voices in your head telling you can’t do this or that, set your life up to win and be fearless about winning or loosing, have the courage to try things and the courage to never back down when you ain’t getting it.
