Abundant Thinking Day 9| Kick Fear Out the Door
On Day 9 of 12 Days of Abundant Thinking, we kick fear out the door. But, be sure it will come knocking on your door again so the best thing to do is pull it up by its ugly roots. The way that can happen is through repetition of a simple five-step process.
No doubt at some time in your life you have experienced some kind of fear. Maybe it was a fear of speaking in public or a fear of launching a new business. Many people have fears of rejection, failure and even success.Your fear could be something as subtle as not having confidence in yourself because some unthinking person made you feel like a failure.
Fear is like a sucking octopus that spreads its ugly tentacles into the activating part of your brain. Fear robs you of motivation.Fear keeps you from taking the decisive action steps you need in order to execute your vision for abundance.
One of my mentors, John Maxwell said, “The greatest mistake we make is living in constant fear that we will make one.” That’s something to think about.
Fear is the single most destructive force to financial abundance. It constantly diminishes of our self-esteem and may manifest in laziness, disorganization, reclusiveness, under-earning or over-spending. Much like a virus, fear can cripple us emotionally in many unforeseen ways. The most crippling effect of fear is the destruction of self-esteem and internal worthiness which robs us of energy, vision and hope.
Make no mistake; abundance will elude you if you do not feel worthy to receive a substantial reward for the value you contribute to others. This is true because like the roots of a tree influence the fruit it yields, the invisible sub-conscious in your life controls the visible results you experience in life.
The self-destructive root of all fear is condemnation. If you suffer from condemnation there will be voices inside your head that nag you with non-abundant thoughts like “you are a failure”, “you will never succeed”, “you are not enough”, “you are guilty”, “you are shameful”, “compared to ____you are inadequate”.
Unfortunately, for most people getting rid of fear is not a one-time event. But by being aware of what triggers feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt, you can recognize and progressively eliminate your fears. Although you might need to go through the process several times, rest assured you can kick fear out the door every time it rears its ugly head.
In my newest website, I have a five step process to follow to release the fear from your life.It begins with recognizing that fear is irrational and ends with cultivating greater faith in God to give you courage and boldness.
The five steps are:
1.Identify irrational fears and limiting beliefs that are derailing your efforts toward abundance.
2. Think deeply about the consequences of allowing fear to rule your decisions.
3. Re-frame your fear into an opportunity for personal growth.
4. Face your fear with immediate action.
5. Faith is the opposite of fear; cultivate faith in God.
