    Fear is just a sense that comes when you DON'T KNOW about what you will face. It's just a sign that you must learn something, whether learn how to handle the fear, or handle the object itself.

    Fear is a psychological delusion created from the mind. It usually isn't based on reality at all but beliefs created from a past event. Th best way to eliminate fear is though action. Action stops fear dead in it's tracks.

    For example: If your a man who has a fear or rejection. You too shy to make friends or even talk to an attractive female who may be sitting next to you. Just by opening your mouth an talking ends fear in its tracks. Doing so, build confidence, high self esteem, self liking and a positive mind set. Yet, if ones stays consumed by fear it can ruin their lives tremendously. One will feel insecure, irrational, and unattractive until the fear is conquered. Keep your mind focused on expecting the best as you being to conquer your fears. Never give into thoughts of negativity, because it can become destructive.

    What fears have you guys conquered so far in your life?

    Fear is a feeling that too often runs our lives. Whether it is fear of commitment, rejection, failure, death, flying, or any other phobia, it tends to keep us from living our lives to the fullest. Fear can be handled rationally and can be controlled if you are willing to work on it and are motivated enough in controlling it, instead of it controlling you.
    Face your fear and Take control !

    Thank you for the post.

    I am new to this forum, and thought IM was instant messaging until a few days ago. I'm reading A LOT, and there seem to be several ways to learn/buy/acquire the tools to make money here.

    There are SO MANY tools I find myself afraid to "jump in". Ultimately I'm more afraid of doing nothing, and coming back in 6 months to learn that other new people (like me) are comfortably making 2-3k each month.

    No better time than the present.

    Many thanks again for the post,

    I agree with you Jack.

    Interesting how very few people even want to face their fears and overcome them.

    Wise statesman James Francis Byrnes said:
    "Too many people are thinking of security instead of opportunity.
    They seem to be more afraid of life than death."
    Something to think about.

      All of us have fears and we need to get over them. Running away from your fears don't make them go away, that just makes them bigger than ever. Fears usually come down to insecurity and uncertainty of something. Before we can face them, you need to learn more about what makes you fearful of these situations. It could be from a past experience.

    I credit socialization with most of our fears. Fear of mistakes, failure, uncertainty...a lot of it comes from being scolded as a kid for making a mess, or being conditioned in school to have the BEST G.P.A. you can have. Think about it...12 years of being penalized for making mistakes on a paper, regardless of if you learned from the mistake or not. We value perfection and external achievement a little too much in the West.

    Fear in itself is a negative energy. We need to release ourselves with negative energies including fear. Fear holds us back in finding our true potentials. Until we let go or until we conquer our fears, we will be confined to being a mediocre. Facing fear will release our full potential and the best that we can get from ourselves.

      Fear does not exist. It is only an illusion of how we interpret bad things that happen to us.

      The more you think about fear, the more powerful it becomes in your own mind.

      Best way to unveil the illusion is to have an intense focus on it and take a deep breath, hold it in until you can't hold it any more, then release it. Then inhale and breath it out again. e.g. public speaking, most people have this fear. Practice the breathing technique when you are preparing your speech and try it at the next toastmasters meeting.

    I think Cus D'amato (Tyson's old trainer) said it best, "The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero uses his fear, projects it onto his opponent, while the coward runs. It's the same thing, fear, but it's what you do with it that matters"

      I disagree with the sentiment that fear is an illusion or an enemy. Fear is a perfectly healthy phenomenon -- it's utterly irrational, but so are all emotions. Fear tells us when to run away, when the sabertooth tiger is just a little too much for us to take on.

      Even more importantly, fear (like any emotion) is an excellent feedback mechanism. When we identify an element of fear, especially one that is acting as an obstacle, we have two choices: the rational and the irrational. The rational mind examines and picks apart the fear: "What is the root of this fear?" "Is this fear a valid one? If yes, why? If no, how to I circumvent it?" The irrational response would be to simply shut down and ignore the fear, to assume the validity of the emotion before investigating it.

      This is why "face your fear" is an accurate way of thinking about it. Fear is perfectly natural and healthy, not something that we need to "get rid of" as some might argue. It is not healthy to ignore fear and leave it unresolved; this only serves to hem you in and shrink your world of possibilities.

      I can handle life... my fear is that so few of US
      realise the extortionate extent to which our
      beloved leaders are lying through their false teeth,
      and committing treason with gay abandon every day
      of their boring lives in DC.

      Every one of Them knows full well about
      the 9/11 Insider Job in which their corporate friends
      were intimately complicit. They MUST know about
      the BP Macondo Crime.... but I'm stopping right there...
      and switching my long List-Building efforts back to IM

      Hope the self-evident truth lurking (none-too-obviously
      for some warriors for sure) in this diatribe qualifies
      as my post #12 towards the 15 that hopefully
      licenses me to fly solo after a mere 4 years
      on the wonderful warrior website.

    Fears are something we all endure. You have to face your fears, to master them. That's easier said than done. Flying the coop doesn• t make them vanish, that simply makes them larger than ever. So that itself ought to make it worthwhile to be real, get it over with.

    I so much agree with this and have experienced it many times. I don't think we can ever get rid of fear entirely, but we can learn to control it through practice. And every time we face up to a fear, get control of it and move past it, we grow stronger and more confident in our ability to become a master of fear the next time it rears its ugly head!

    It's so true that once we overcome our fears, our lives can be totally transformed. What if my product isn't good enough? What if they don't like me as a person? What if I don't have enough time to finish my project? I even made up a lot more fears that seem so inconsequential now, I don't even know why they were roadblocks in my life.

    But now, I am who I am and happy about it. Let's just get over it and start living life.

    Hi Jack,

    As I have stated on this forum before there are a couple of good sayings.

    "Feel the fear and do it anyway"
    "Face your fears! They are all that stand between you and what you want"

    Take good care of those that you love.
