FEAR AND ITS HARM

Hi! everyone,


For those who have read my preceding article, “Steps to Overcome the Major Obstacles of Staying Healthy”, will have some insights as to how to overcome these major obstacles in general. 

Today, I am going to talk about fear and the harms it may cause if you do not handle it well. It is always a misconception that successful men do not have fear.  The only difference is that they know how to turn the fear to desire compared to the not so successful men.

Therefore, we need to constantly check and review our situation to ensure that we are not its captive because its destructive power can not be underestimated.

1. FEAR WEAKENS US

Fear robs us of our inner peace and makes us paralyzed by doubts or frustrations.  If left unchecked, it will eventually cause us to abandon our faith and hope. Without faith and hope, we will lose our direction and destination.
Here, you can see clearly that fear is an emotion that caused us to pay interest in advance on a debt that we never owe. Worst still, fear can be anything - real, imagine or perceived. It may attack you anytime, it can grow and ultimately take control of you.
2. FEAR CAUSES PROCRASTINATION
Just imagine if your mind is busy speculating on all sorts of bad things that may happen to you, you will then find your mind to be either pre-occupied or clouded with abundance of negative things. As a result, no positive action will be taken. Inaction will lead you to no success. In short, you will remain status quo which will not only hinder you from moving forward but will also lead you to depression or a prisoner of fear. Here, we have to acknowledge and admit that everything in life has some degree of risks. There is no way to escape from such risks. Risks or challenges in fact add colors to life.
3. FEAR WASTES ENERGY
"Fear makes the wolf bigger than he is" is well described by an old German adage. Most of the times, defeats are caused by people who give in to the fear itself. This is because it holds them back by making them think of unnecessary things. As a result they have to waste valuable energy. In short, fear can push you towards the wrong direction by producing nervous energy that makes you unable to perform in a new situation. Alternatively, it can also sap your energy as you try to overcome the paralyzing effect that is holding you back.
 4. FEAR BREEDS MORE FEAR

Similar to success, fear breeds more fear. What is worse is fear itself. It is an unknown belief that comprises anything that makes you doubtful or suspicious. It can exaggerate itself until it becomes like a monster that can take control of you and make you captive of fear.  It is something intangible and it lies inside us. It is not necessary real; so long as you comprehend it as danger then it is sufficient to capture yourself. Sometimes, fear can provoke adverse action which is harmful to us, such as taking drugs so as to numb ourselves to the fear.
5. PREVENT US FROM REACHING OUR POTENTIAL
Being captive of fear will cause you to be doubtful and makes you fearful to attempt, thus losing the opportunity to win. Without trials and testing, how can you reach your potential?
I hope this article will give you a good grasp of fear so that you will not let fear rule and ruin your lives. In the following article I will try to provide you some tips on how not to let fear bothers you again.

So, stay tuned for the forthcoming article. Look forward to seeing you again.
