Face your fears
How do you face your fears?

The longer I work in my field, the more often I experience how much damage fear can do to a person’s career or home life.

I can see it coming a mile away, but usually it hits so hard that I’m powerless to do anything to help unless the person I’m working with is willing to face their own fears and embrace them. 

These are the four most common questions I get.

What’s the best way to embrace my fears? I find that the best way to face, address and embrace your fears is to do it head on. When you only address something indirectly, you run the risk of not conquering the fullness of the fear. Facing your fear straight on is not at all an easy task and, even though it might not feel like it at the time, it’s an incredibly courageous thing to even take on the task of looking your fears straight in the eyes.

Is there a way to slowly accept my fears? Well, sure, there’s a process to accepting and embracing your fears. Everyone goes through this process differently. While I may prefer the direct approach, that doesn’t necessarily mean that’s the best way for everyone in the world. Another approach is to tip-toe into it lightly. It takes more time than directly immersing yourself. But each person is unique, so our way of embracing fear is going to differ. 

What if fear still gets the best of me? Don’t get down on yourself! Embracing fear is a pretty big deal and it takes a lot of bravery to confront and overcome what frightens you the most. If you find fear getting the best of you, do what I call “chunking.”  Break the fear down into manageable pieces. You don’t need to conquer it all in one bite.

Who can help me face my fears? Ultimately, embracing your fears is your own journey, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have help along the way. Rely on a trusted friend, a colleague, or a coach to support you as you muster the courage to face your fears and overcome them.
