How To Overcome The Fear Of Change Holding You Down

Change is one thing never quite embraced by many of us. Whenever we are faced with the prospect of change, we often seem to get a bit distressed and are often not as comfortable with the prospect. One may wonder how some of us get past the feelings often associated with the prospects of change. However there are some ways which will enable one to effectively deal with this debilitating feeling.

The first step is to acknowledge the fear in you. After such an acceptance, you need to start working on plans which will go towards making the seemingly unbearable situation bearable. The fear of change is a great obstacle to many people reaching their full potential and you surely don’t want to be in this situation. This is your time to get past this disabling feling.

Think of a journal. Maintain a journal which will be a record of all your fears and their causes. The journal will as well be a record of the emotions you have when you are faced with fear and the effects of these feelings in your life. The journal should also include in it a list of your hopes for the future and the possible plans you may have to achieve or realize your hopes and dreams. The journal is an effective way of relieving yourself of the pent up emotions and unnecessary baggage holding you down. It is basically another opportunity for you to have a new view of the situation confronting you. When decoding the scenarios, try and have a balanced view of the whole situation facing you. See all the views and perspectives of the situations that are causing you all the negative feelings.

The next step in dealing with your fear problem is to focus on the excitement and not just the fear factors. Have a view of the situations confronting you from a stand point which will excite you and not the perspective which will cause you fear. This is essentially going to transform your energies from negative to positive and prove a chain reaction to the whole situation. Focus on the possibilities that a new start will bring you and do not let fear cripple you making you think of all these as wild dreams. You chose to embrace a change for the sake of having the benefits of change accrue to you and this is a point you need to mind constantly. This is basically affording you a second chance at living your life to its full potential.
