Are You Motivated By Fear?
What drives you in life? What gets you going? Are you drawn towards the objective, with a positive attitude? Or do you move ahead because of fear? Because of loss. Thinking that if you don’t do something, you’ll face negative consequences.
Having an attitude that supports your well-being by being motivated with positivity… takes time and practice to achieve. Similar to procrastination: you choose to do the pending things only when you really need to. Being motivated by fear causes you to put yourself under enormous stress. But this stress can be reduced considerably!
Considering that you need to anyway do those things that:
- You postpone because of fear
- Get you stressed
- You need to do to move ahead
I have come up with an easy solution on how to be motivated with positivity… once again. And I say “once again”, because at one point in your life, you took a decision. This decision got you to be afraid. Something happened and we are going to fix it together now.
Grab a paper and a pen and let us start! Answer the below questions to get the clarity you need to leave fear behind.
- When was the first time that you remember doing something out of fear? Write down the very first thing/situation/experience that comes to your mind.
- As you look at it written down, what can you learn from it? Please get the learnings from this experience by following the below guidelines very carefully, to properly release the fear completely:
- The learnings need to be positive, for you only, in the present tense:
E.g.: I, [your name], am at peace now.
I, [your name], listen carefully now.
As you take these learnings in the format above, you will discover how easy it is to not only keep your fears under control from now on, as you can use this exercise with other experiences too, but to also release yourself from all negative, unwanted emotions.
You need to offer your mind a logical, positive outcome of what happened in the past, so that you have the closure that you have always wanted. Your mind is hanging on an experience that happened in the past and needs to let it go. You can move on only when there’s a positive outcome, a lesson, a learning that you can take from all that happened in the past, that kept you stuck until now.
Is it that simple? Yes, it is. Let me know how this exercise worked for you.
Do you need more support? I’m more than happy to serve you.
I’ll see you soon,
