Control Your Fear Before It Controls You
"Fear Factor" is one of my favorite TV shows. It highlights courage of participants to engage in most fearsome and disgusting acts.
Most of contestants are willing to sacrifice their dignity for sake of prize money. So what does that imply? It implies that with proper mindset, determination, and will power, you can conquer your fear.
Everyone has some sort of fear. It may be brought about by any one or more of following reasons.
1) by a traumatic past incident (like being bitten by a dog) 2) by influence of other people 3) by their own negative way of thinking
But are you going to let fear take over your life? Will you remain a hostage of your fear forever?
You must take necessary steps to overcome your fright. It's all in mind.
Do you envy other people when you see them enjoying wild rides, and you're just stuck in a corner because you're too terrified to give it a try?
My suggestion is to face your fear head-on. Imagine yourself enjoying experience instead of exaggerating things that make you worry. (Unless of course you have health problems, then taking wild rides may not be a good idea).
Do you want to be a doctor but you're afraid that your intellect can't handle pressure or you're worried about financial insecurity?
