GRATITUDE: Gratitude is another way to overcome fear.
Gratitude makes you focus on the things you have at the moment rather than being afraid of what will happen in your life or in the future.
Gratitude makes you value the little things you have in life which you usually take for granted such as breath, clothes, shelter, water, speech. Gratitude puts you in the present. Deliberately note the little things each day to be grateful for. As you practice being grateful, you will feel more thankful for every moment and gradually let go of your fears. When you see things in a positive way, the world around you change positively. Whenever you fear about the future or you fear about what might go wrong, call yourself to the present and get a journal
(Electronic or hard copy) note the things you are grateful for.
Perhaps you are grateful for life, friends, family, or something you feel good about. Gratitude gives you the opportunity to accept situations and accept yourself just as you are right now. Gratitude is a reminder that you are worth it and you are good enough. When you accept yourself and everything around you, you have an inner peace like never. You would grow effortlessly without struggling to compete with another. When in fear, be grateful for the moment that you are, be grateful for breath, and be grateful for your existence on earth.
Another way to overcome your fear is: VISUALISE POSITIVE OUTCOMES AND PRACTICE SELF-TALK.
Talk to yourself through your fear and you will see a tremendous change in your view about life. It is important you constantly practice self-talk/affirmations.
Some things you can say are: 🗣️ I am letting go of my fear.
🗣️ I can control my thoughts.
🗣️My fear for heights (or mention what you are afraid of) is gone.
🗣️ I take things one step at a time.
🗣️ My courage is greater than my fear.
🗣️ Letting go of my fear is easy.
