“Never be afraid to try something new, because life gets boring when you stay within the limits of what you already know.”
Have you ever been afraid to step out and try something new? Maybe you feel like things won’t work out or go as planned if you step out and take the risk. It’s easy to focus on the negative results of what could happen but, what if it does work out? What if the exact thing that you are afraid to do is the very thing that will change your life and put you on the right path?
Sometimes we just have to push ourselves to overcome the fear and the limitations that we build in our mind. Fear keeps us stuck and limited to the same places but in our to overcome we must shift our mindset to believe that we can accomplish what we put our minds to.
So how do we overcome the fear of change:
1. Focus on the positive side of what could happen
”Where your focus goes energy flows.”
Focus on the positive results that could happen. When we focus on the negative side we affirm that sense of fear that we feel and we are more likely to convince ourselves to stay where we are. When we focus on the positive results of what could happen we open ourselves us to embrace that possibilities of the amazing opportunities change can bring. Focus is a powerful thing and what we choose to focus on will grow.
2. Take small steps
Trying to change everything at one time can be overwhelming. Take baby steps and focus on change the small things one step at a time. When we take baby steps towards change we are more likely to follow through because as we begin to see the slow and steady results of our change this will encourage us to keep going.
3 . Get an accountability partner
Find yourself an accountability partner who will encourage you throughout your journey. When we have someone constantly cheering us on and reminding us of the goals we set and progress we have made we are more likely to keep going when things get hard. Overcoming our fears is not something that we can always do alone, we need people who can remind us of our potential and abilities.
I just want to challenge and encourage you to go after the things that are in your heart. Don’t allow the fear of failing to keep you in the same place. You never know what will happen if you step out . Just remember, focus on the positive, take small steps and get an accountability partner this will help you overcome your fear of change.
