Often times we get carried away by our fears of what we’re trying to do. The fear that we might fail and get embarrassed. The fear that we might be good enough to do it. The fear that what would other people think. And a lot more thoughts.

Why do we feel fear? Is it our destiny? Shouldn’t we try new things? Shouldn’t we explore new paths?

The way I see it is fear is there to protect us. Our human body is designed to protect us from any danger it perceives. It wants to protect itself so it can live.

Now, when we try new things, the body sees that as purely unknown. When something is unknown, by default we try to over-analyze it. We think of many different scenarios and try to cover all of them. And if we fail to cover a scenario, we automatically label it as something dangerous. And when is something dangerous, we experience fear.

Our body doesn’t really know if it’s real or not. It creates it because based on its interpretation, it is unknown and so it doesn’t know what to do.

You, as the conscious self, must balance your body to say that the thing you want to try out is not dangerous. It is okay and here are things we will be able to gain from this experience.

We will be able to learn this and that. We will be able to exercise our bodies. We will be able to release happy emotions. The more we introduce it to our body as “normal” and not as something dangerous, the body will adapt and understand like a pet.

Let’s teach our bodies to see what we’re going to gain from this new experience. It doesn’t necessarily mean to remove the fear itself but go through it even with fear. Then, the body will realize that it is actually not a dangerous thing and we will gain a lot from it!

You got it!

May you reach your dreams.
