The Good Vibes Only Roadshow – Expose Yourself To Your Fears

My Mom would always say to me, “you can’t live your life in fear”; she was right!

Fears can eat us up!  There is no other way of putting it; they can take over and then we live our lives with anxiety.  I had and still have a couple fears in my life; I’m human!  I’ve just learned, over time, to not let it control my life.

Several years ago, I found I was having panic attacks while driving into the City to go to work; I couldn’t understand why, as I enjoyed my job.  I spoke to a mentor of mine, who brought it to my attention, some panic and anxiety attacks are caused when we have a sense that we have lost control or we have no control over a situation.  I began to analyze my life at this point.

Yes, I did enjoy my job, but it did have control over my life.  I had to change my mindset; why was I looking at my job as “control”.  I didn’t realize it at the time, but my job had become my fear.  Fear of losing a job, fear of not doing my job properly, fear, fear, and more fear.

I needed to expose myself, break down the layers, and find out why I was fearing so much about my job.  Once I came to the conclusion, I was allowing that nasty word of “control” to dictate my life, I changed my mindset and every day there was less and less anxiety and fear.  Control and fear tend to go hand-in-hand at times; one follows the other.

I decided to live my life with the mindset of “whatever is meant to be, will be”; I immediately felt calmer.  We can’t live our lives worried about what hasn’t happened yet; who knows, what we fear now could never happen.  What a waste of precious time!

It takes time and it doesn’t happen overnight, but each day does get better.  We must remember, everything happens for a reason; we may not understand it at the time, but that is also how we learn and gain wisdom.  We need to stop fearing what hasn’t happened; I think that would be the first step in facing our fears.

  1. When we give up control of our lives, as you say to something such as our jobs or profession, fear is not far off. You’re correct in that the universe will unfold as it should and “what will be; will be.” It does take time to learn and to be accepting and comfortable with not being able to control “what might happen” That type of need for control and ultimately fear can be debilitating for sure.

    Great post and thanks for taking the time and effort to share with us.
