What If I Could Imagine a World Without Fear?
No, one would deny that fear is man’s number one enemy. Fear of the unknown, fear of pain, fear of failure, fear of ridicule…all of these are the fears that are the core of every phobia, and they can manifest themselves in different ways for different people. However, there is one fear that plagues millions of people, and that is the fear of rejection.
You see, when we accept the fact that we may not always get what we want, or even what we need, we begin to realize that life is filled with fear. This is because, in the world of the self, we choose to exist in fear – we choose to live in fear of our fears rather than letting ourselves come to terms with the realities of the world. The way to combat this fear is simple, it is to understand that fear is nothing more than the product of our own imagination. This means that we can learn to turn fear into a motivating force by applying certain techniques.
For example, rather than running away and turning your world into an unreal, fearful place, why not use it as a stepping stone? Rather than imagining the worst, what if you imagined the best? Rather than living in constant fear of the world, what if you lived in constant fear of failure? By understanding how fear works, and learning to turn fear into something positive, you can create a world where your dreams and goals are the norm.
