Fear can do one of two things:
1) Cause us to shrink to draw back and not to try again
2) It can cause us to examine our beliefs and thoughts that trigger that fear.
If we take the time to dig in and find out that most of what causes fear is not even our own thoughts but thoughts planted by another.
Sometimes it goes back to an experience or thought of another. Or sometimes it is because we made an assumption based on how we felt.
Next once we have found the root of the fear‚ we need to ask ourselves a few questions:
Is it true?
Are we actually 100% sure that it is true?
How would we feel if it were not true?
And how would we behave if we had not been shaped by that thought or fear and we believed the opposite?
What can we now believe that will better serve us?
Can I adopt a different thought that is faith based instead of fear based?
Now how does that feel?
Once we do that we can now create a new thought pattern. The old pattern will fight to stay‚but sweep it away‚ until it can no longer find room to stay. The new faith-based thoughts will fill the room!
