We all face challenges every day, from issues at work to disagreements at home, which we can choose to either confront with courage, or run away from to avoid. As many of us approach these challenges, we grit our teeth, reach deep down and find the courage to power through.
But what happens when you’re too scared to look these challenges straight on? What happens when we run away? Our confidence suffers. When we are scared, we don’t feel good about ourselves. Now, I’m not saying that it’s unacceptable to be afraid. It’s perfectly normal to be afraid. It’s how we approach these challenges that affects our self-esteem. So how can you approach an anxiety-producing scenario with courage instead of fear?
Acknowledge your fear. It’s alright that you’re feeling some fear. Trying to repress it so that you don’t feel it at all will only make it get bigger and scarier. Feel the fear. Sit with it for a bit. Then let it go.
Dig deep. Sometimes it doesn’t take much, but sometimes you really have to go pretty deep within yourself to find the courage to face a scary situation. You have to be willing to go through a few layers that may not be so comfortable in order to get to that layer of pure bravery that you’re after.
Listen to your intuition. Your intuition knows. Once you’ve dug down deep, you’ll be able to listen to your intuition without any of that other static that fear can produce.
Keep your head up. Want to feel confident? Then look confident. Don’t ever face a problem with your head down. Always keep your chin held high and face the world surrounding you.
Don’t stop trying. It might take more than one go to find the courage it takes to face a certain problem. But persistence and courage go hand in hand and once you solve your problem, you’ll feel that much better about yourself for sticking with it.
