The Fear You Are Most Afraid to Face
Face your Fear!!
I’m sure you heard that before. You have also heard, you have nothing to fear but fear itself.
People fear things such as spiders, snakes, darkness, failure, success, and many other things. Like most, you struggle with your fears because you are unable to summon the courage to face them. However, there exists one fear you are afraid to face that contains the key to your success in life.
If you’re not sure what fear I’m referring to, you can figure it out by looking in the mirror.
Yes, your greatest fear is being yourself. You were taught at an early age to conform to authority, institutions, and the collective opinion of the majority. You were taught that being different than the majority made you weird, stupid, or crazy.
You were taught to hate yourself!!
No wonder why you are so stressed, depressed, and unhappy. You have to dress like the majority, act like the majority, think like the majority. You have become a pretender, trying to balance your true-self privately with your public manufactured-self.
Luckily, you live in the 21st century and technology is affecting the way society operates. No longer is it beneficial to fit in. In order to be relevant through the new mediums of this century, you must be unique to receive attention amongst all the noise. There is no better way to be unique than to just be yourself.
If you want to be successful in the future you most embrace your weird, stupid, and crazy self. This means being comfortable in your own skin, becoming self-aware, and creatively expressing yourself.
If you are wondering how you face the fear of being yourself, you must learn how to Love Yourself!
Love your flaws …
Love your quirks…
Love your mistakes…
Love what makes you different…
Love your good parts and bad parts….
Once you learn to love yourself, you begin to creatively express yourself. You become a Genius, you begin to realize your true potential because you don’t have to fight with yourself anymore. You discover hidden talents, capabilities, and a new energy for life. You will begin to attract the attention of others and stand out because they want to find the authenticity you have, within themselves.
Here is the best part, you can make a living off your authenticity! That’s the beauty of the 21st century.
Take a deep breath…. Don’t be afraid
Go back to that mirror…
And go love the hell out of that weird, stupid, and crazy person who is looking back at you!
