“The important thing is not being afraid to take a chance. Remember, the greatest failure is not to try. Once you find something you love to do, be the best at doing it.” Debbi Fields
One of the things I have learned throughout the years is that facing fear can turn your life around. Even the bravest man gets scared and fearful. It is a natural feeling of every human being. Acting in spite of fear is what makes you gain more courage and grow each and every time.
Do you remember the time when you overcame things which once seemed unachievable? How did you feel after? Were you able to see the whole new level of possibilities and courage you gained?
From time to time we tend to forget that fear is only an illusion. Being scared is a winnable game which teaches you more about yourself and that there aren’t limits to who or what you can be. Here are 4 reasons why being scared to death is the best time to personally growth and magnify your potential.
1. You’ll go beyond your limits
We all have certain limits above us. Acting regardless of fear is what pushes you to grow and move up on the ladder of your own limitations. Every time you decide to act while scared, you will become to explore your personal strength.
By acting courageously, you are destroying limiting beliefs in your mind and becoming more open-minded to new ideas.
2. You’ll train yourself for challenges
You can stretch your mind only by taking continuous action. Every time you overcome the moment of being scared, you actually overcame the challenge. When you do this often enough, bigger obstacles don’t push you off track, and you will learn to handle things in a better fashion.
3. You’ll become more confident
One of the best benefits I get from acting in a courageous way is growing my confidence. I am not talking about being snobby; I mean healthy self-esteem which supports your belief system and enlarges your vision about life. With confidence comes also feeling of certainty which is an advantage for better performance. If you believe in yourself and your capabilities, you are more than likely reach higher and produce better results.
4. You’ll feel proud of yourself
Anytime you overcome a feeling of being scared; you feel proud of yourself. You don’t need to wait for someone to give you credit for your accomplishments. Practice this with any little thing which comes along the way every day. By doing it, you’ll improve self-confidence and see yourself in a different light. Feeling of satisfaction will have bigger value to you than the moments of being uncomfortable. Take it as training; once you start, it will become easier every time you do it and harder to stop.
