Mastering fear is a skill like any other, that can be learned and requires practice.
Our fears are rooted deep in the subconscious.
Some of them are not relevant due to timing, while others are merely programmed propaganda.
Regardless of what they are, living a meaningful life is possible even in their presence.
Being fearless does not mean that you never experience fear, it simply means that you don’t allow it to stop you from achieving your goals.

Living your best life means being the master of your fears.
Fear steals your desire and drive.
Many people don’t even know what they want because being confronted with acknowledging it terrifies them.
Some people believe their fear when it whispers they can’t get what they want, are not deserving of what they want, or would ruin it once they have it.
Allowing fear to rule you, kills your confidence, creativity, and your ability to draw your desires closer.
I’m not saying eliminate fear completely as some of them serve the purpose of self-preservation.
What I am saying is that you are the creator of your best life and you must learn how living with your terror is worlds apart from letting it run the show.
Fear is ever-present, and for some, it’s the dominating theme.
How can you identify whether or not trepidation is restraining you?
Firstly, take inventory of your life. How are you managing in these areas?
Where there’s an imbalance and your life is not most favorable, fear likely has a hand in it.
Most problems have solutions, just like skills can be learned.
Therefore if you aren’t solving your own problems and you’re not expanding the skills required for success, something else is present, getting in your way.
The reality that some people triumph over remarkable challenges to achieve success is evidence that visible factors are not the cause.
This then means that the obstacle is hidden within us.
Secondly, to better understand how your fear is controlling you, ask yourself:
If you answered no to any of these questions, fear is likely blocking your path.
How are your life results impacted by fear?
Well, it’s destructive of course.
Fear can hold you hostage in an intimate grapple of scarcity and insignificance.
It keeps you broke or your head barely above water and disables you from achieving anything resembling wealth.
Fear can halt you from taking action on how you contribute to the lives of others and from making a huge impact in this world.
It’ll keep you depressed and stressed, claiming a massive toll on your health.
It leaves you unfulfilled, immersed in remorse, and prevents you from firing your boss, launching your enterprise, and networking or marketing your talents.
It curtails your confidence so deeply that you avoid making friends, talking to strangers, or saying yes to a date that could seal the deal with your potential soulmate if only you could find your voice and speak to them.
In short, fear can stop you from getting anything meaningful and desirable you can think of if you let it.
On the flip side, taking control of your fear liberates and energizes you to start working towards your goals in addition to attracting your desires with the complete capacity of your energy and mind.
You embody a warrior spirit and a do-whatever-it-takes demeanor to create your most desired life.
You’ll be able to envision your life clearly as you’re not hiding from the truth.
You’ll unleash your creativity as you address challenges with confidence instead of overwhelm.
You will easily experience enthusiasm and excitement in your relationships, work, and your life in general.
You won’t postpone your happiness until after your goals are achieved.
Instead, you’ll be enjoying your journey, knowing you are getting to where you really want to be.
And because you achieve your goals quicker and easier, you’ll set regular new goals.

The 3 essential keys to no longer being the prisoner of fear are:
Awareness - Understanding - Rewiring
Identify your fear, confront it and create the thoughts, habits, and reactions that free you from the shackles of this monster.
And since you’re painfully aware of where you are now and understand the dynamics better, what’s left?
To reprogram yourself around the fear and start living your life your way, there are two things you must do.
You’re not going anywhere if you don’t know where you’re going, are you?

You must have a goal destination, be it a gym or a restaurant, so you can draw a map of how to get there.
The only power you have is in the present moment, not yesterday, not tomorrow, but now.
From the habit of joy, stems the habit of success and when you realize that happiness is a choice, you have a much easier time learning how to develop a millionaire mindset than you would if you choose to give in to fear and allow it to remain your master.
Reclaim your life force and start thinking about your presence in terms of Power, not prejudice.
Be realistic about what scares you and overcome it by taking decisive action to change your attitude towards what you consider terrors and how you relate to them.

Fear of failure, abandonment and death are the fundamental fears, all encompassed by fear of the unknown, fear of powerlessness and underpinned by the fear of loss.
Horror and terror imply what people generally perceive as the highest degrees of fear, depending on the situation.
Many people are terrified of failure, others are horrified by loss.
At the base of fear is the idea of significant loss, which increases the degree of fear one experiences based on the amount of value or meaning attached to what they fear losing.
The future and imagined events that often hold no bearing on the present moment.
The unknown, based on a sense that one has no control over the outcome of a situation.
Specific environments and conditions such as heights, spiders and small spaces to name a few general fears, often based on a prior bad experience or belief of impending doom associated with it.
However in the context of the business of industry and the business of being human, the belief that there is a chance of losing money, health, opportunities, assets, rapport, self-worth etc. and not recovering, many people become paralyzed by fear at the mere thought of not succeeding.
