I’m scared of spiders but I don’t think I can get over that. I’m scared when I am by myself which is never really happening since I have a huge family but usually I just put the tv on or something. My next fear is the fear of not being who I want myself to be. I have big ideas for who I want to be and what I want to do and I’m scared that I might not accomplish that.

I have not faced any of the three fears I wrote down. But it’s all in my head. Fears I have faced and conquered ended up being less scary than I thought once I mentally prepared and realized the fear was in my head.

Great video, great quote, powerful topic. Fear has been connected for me with my learned anxiety. I say learned because I was surrounded by anxiety throughout my childhood. This has been a constant project of mine, overcoming my fears that lie with the well-being of my family. I have learned to evaluate my feelings and pinpoint the true concerns and rethink them.
I have faced many fears, and made my way through. It is a amazing powerful feeling. It is something I will continue to work on and move through. Thanks for this one today! Loved it.

I think a lot of my fears are in my head. Learning to control the extent of my thoughts and realizing that my fears can be diminished is something I should work on.

My biggest fear is not being there for my daughter. Nobody will treat and care for her like i do. Even though there are people that love her just as much as me and will step up and fill my void it’s not the same. Every child needs their mom and I just need to see her grow up and achieve all her dreams. I know if anything were to happen to me I have set an excellent foundation for her and she will be just fine.

My next fear is heights just on rides and things like that. I don’t mind the airplane because I’m not in the open. I don’t want to see how high I am or how far I will drop. I can close my eyes but it’s that feeling I get in my stomach that I don’t like. I’ve ridden roller coasters before but it’s just not something Ill choose.

Like Will Smith said, “everything we want is on the other side of fear.” And that’s true. We fear failing. We fear being uncomfortable. So, in a sense, we do create fears to avoid certain tasks because of the uncertainty we possess.

I have the fear of heights, public speaking, and I also have stage fright. I have been dealing with these fears for as long as I could remember and some steps I’ve took to try over coming them were facing them head on and I’ve also tried easing into them. I think facing your fear is brave and that any moment you make progress towards conquering your fear should be celebrated. I also believe that fear is a mental and that through experience we shape things we are afraid of, and example would be I use to have a fear of the dark, and so does many other children, however once we grow up we no longer have that fear because we conquered it.

You need to be brave and then you find out fear is the most powerful when it’s in your head.

I would say my fears are owning rental properties and getting hit in the face training (i cant think of a 3rd one). In order to conquer any fear, you have to take it one step at a time. It’s going to be uncomfortable but you have to go towards and through fear in order to beat it. I have faced many of my fears and I learned that they are really all in your head. Emotion is very powerful and you have to control it in order to win against fear

I have faced my fears before, and I don’t think there’s too much bravery really involved in it. I think that when I faced them, I simply thought about what I was scared about, then thought about how i could solve it, then i carried that through.

Love the quote – being brave is not the absence of fear rather finding a way through it. This gives me permission to live with certain anxieties (and I do!) as long as I don’t allow them to control me and impede my journey towards greatness.
