2 Ways To Powerfully Overcome Your Fears

I have been getting a lot of emails recently from women who say that the biggest thing holding them back from living the life they want to live is fear, fear, fear, fear. FEAR. Big fat FEAR.

So today I wanted to share the two methods to overcome your fears that I also share with my clients and go into a lot of depth in my group mentor mentorship program, Path to Freedom.

These methods will help you reframe your fears in a way that allows you to work WITH and through them instead of have them work against you.

Method #1: Is this fear real or imagined?

The first method to overcome your fears is to ask yourself a simple question – is my fear real or imagined? When we feel fear, most of the time it’s imagined fear. We are projecting a future outcome or making up some outcome that we think is going to happen, but we really have no clue what will play out.

We’re just playing out these scenarios in our head. They are completely made up stories that we’re just telling ourselves about what we think is going to happen. Why do we do this to ourselves?! Why can’t we think of cool stories that will happen instead? Can’t we think of things that we WANT to happen instead?

3 Ways to Reconnect with Yourself

*In collaboration with Sleep Advisor*

It’s so very easy to get lost in this modern fast-paced world of ours. Every hour we’re awake our self confidence seems to be under attack. We are either bombarded with advertisements intended to make us doubt ourselves or we’re scrolling through ‘friends’ social media posts feeling like failures at life.

One day you wake up and suddenly you can’t actually remember who you are anymore.

It often feels like we are running at full speed just to stay still. Sometimes you just wish you could pause it all. That you could press a button on some kind of cosmic remote control and the world would stand still long enough for you to gather your breath and just catch up.

If you’ve ever felt the way I’ve described above then take a deep breath, or six, go make yourself a nice glass of green tea (don’t forget the slice of lemon) and then come back and read my 3 ways to reconnect with yourself below.

How to deal with anxiety or ANY negative emotion

If you guys have been following along with me on Instagram, you know that I’ve really been working on getting more in tune with my body and it’s messages. I’ve been working on feeling into my body and being present with it So this morning when my alarm went off at 7:30 I decided to press snooze. My body was craving more sleep and since I haven’t been sleeping well the last couple months, I decided it was OK to sleep in a bit more.

 



I slept for another hour and heard my alarm go off again. I decided to press snooze again. I was just luxuriating in the feeling of good, solid, sleep! I just did NOT want to get up.

 





I guess thats another upside to being an entrepreneur that I love – you get to create your own schedule. I knew what I had planned for the day and I knew it wasn’t imperative for me to get up then. What I had on my schedule could wait.

 





I slept another 30 minutes and as I woke up I almost immediately felt some resistance in my body.

 





I felt pangs of guilt and anxiety in the pit of my stomach. Oh, I hate those feelings! But instead of resisting them like I used to, I dug into them deeper. I wanted to find out why they were there.

 





Why was I feeling anxiety when I hadn’t even done anything yet today?! I’ve come to understand that our feelings come from our thoughts. It’s as simple as that.

 





Most people believe that our circumstances, events, people, situations, etc., cause our feelings. That’s actually not the case. It’s our interpretations and thoughts about our circumstances that cause us to feel a certain way. So our thoughts actually cause our emotions, not our circumstances or events in our lives.

 





Knowing this I just had to ask myself one question: “what thoughts are causing me to feel anxiety or guilt?” and address then them.
