A Note From Mark Felber

Fear sometimes stops you from doing stupid things. But it can also stop you from doing creative or exciting or experimental things. It can cloud your judgment of others and lead to all kinds of evil. The control and understanding of our personal fears is one of the most important undertakings of our lives.

-- Helen Mirren

Eleven seminarsScare Yourself Into the Life You Want

Go on...what's stopping you? Go ahead and ask your boss for a raise. Speak up the next time you disagree with someone. Call that person you met in the elevator. Start that business you've been talking about for a decade. Audition for the part. You fill in the blank.

Are you afraid? If so, congratulations! You've just identified the pool you need to dive into to reclaim your life. If you pass, however, claiming the water's too cold or you just don't feel like swimming today, the fear wins. And you lose.

"Fear stands between you and your ability to go anywhere you like, do anything you want, and meet anyone you please," writes Rhonda Britten, author of several books on fear, including Fearless Living and Fearless Loving.

When we face fear, when we act in spite of the fear, we grow. As we expand, we push through our perceived limitations, out far beyond our comfort zone. We embrace freedom and become unstoppable forces in our own lives. And it feels sooooo good!

Quiz: How Well Do You Handle Fear?

At its best, fear is an instinctive, natural ability to help us survive. At its worst, it's that nagging voice inside our heads that heralds doom and disaster even before we get started on something. Fear keeps us from taking risks that might enrich our life or holds us back from doing some things we need to do. Do we experience new and exciting vistas? Get involved with that person or group? Accomplish something really great? Fear says, "Not on your life." To discover the role fear plays in your life, complete the following quiz.

True or False

 

Set 1

 

1. My self-talk is filled with can'ts, shouldn'ts and ought-tos.

2. I never talk about my fears. If I do, people will think I'm stupid or weak.

3. I often find myself thinking about bad things that might happen in the future.
