They say a child is born with only 2 fears : Fear of loud noise and fear of falling

As the child grow up where does all these other fears come from ?

The fear comes from association . From what you listen to .Who do you listen to? Do you listen to the news everyday ?

I personally decided to stop listening to the news because the core message of the news is mostly complaint and all the things are going wrong in the world right now

Nothing against knowing what is going in the world but listening to the news trains me trains me expect bad things to happen and keeps me fearful .

I live in fear and feel good living small . You thinking "I am struggling but at least i am not dead . At least there is no riot where i live . At least am not in prison . At least i wasn't involved in a plane crash

It is poison to my mind because it trains me to expect bad thing to happen

What you expose yourself to affects the way you act and think

Recognise the negative influence in your life : media , news , gossip magazines , nayslayers , or dawn right negative people


But femi , Watching the is part of my routine ? I like waking up , having coffee and hearing what is going on in the world ?

I am going to ask you to listen to sucess stories instead . Listen to great minds like Jim Rohn , Zig Ziglar , Tony Robbins , Jack Canfield and Eben Pagan

If you expose your self daily to great people , how can you not be great .


If all you know about IM is success stories how can you not go for it ?

Now is the time to remove those toxic influences from your life . The nayslayer , the people who have only horrible stories to tell .

They cripple you . They make you live small . Refuse to listen to the news or negative influence in your life

I hope my words I have spoken to your heart . I hope you make that choice only you can make to listen to great people and be positive part of this world

You are an wonderful person and the world is waiting for you

Much respect ...

Femi

      There are fears that make sense - fear of falling, fearing of touching somethin hot, etc.

      There are fears that are not logical. You can't avoid "bad" things by avoiding any mention of them. Worse, you can't grow as a person by avoiding everything with the potential to make you fearful.

      If you have a fear of the dark you can spend your life with a light on at night. Or you can face the fear and understand its illogical and get over it.

      You can avoid bad news but that makes you part of the problem as you do nothing to change bad politics or economics or attitudes. Avoidance is not a solution - it just gives in to the fear of feeling bad or being worried.

    Faith is connected to something you cannot see and which you do not have any reason to pursuit, but you do. Fear is connected to what you can see, what you don't know and whatever you have experieced.

    Thank you for your inspiring post! It is important to stay focused on what you are doing. Other things can sidetrack you, and get you off course. When you are upset or discouraged or feeling overwhelmed, it makes it that much harder to press on. Everyone has been there, so thank you for your words of encouragement!

    Every one has that nagging little voice that wants things to stay the same . The real you knows better and not convinced about the "current circumstance ".Your past doesn't have to your future

    Hi Kay . You have made a solid point here . thank you for sharing . You are right . You got to take the good with the bad . What i am saying to focus on success and you would soon become one rather than focus on all the problems you have or all the things that are going wrong . Acknowledge the problems yes and FOCUS on what you can do to turn things around

    Cheers

    You got it right .Reprogramming your mind for success . What you have got now in is what you gave your mind to work with in the past . If you input success stories starting today and start taking simple steps every day to conquer your fear , you would look back and wonder why you thought you couldn't it in the first place

    I am with you on notreading newspapers or magazines.I haven't done it regularly for around 5 years now and feel a lot better as a result. I put that energy into reading positive mind stuff that creates new realities. What you see on the news is a result of old programming.

    Fear is everywhere. The difference between the rich and poor is obviously the mindset. The rich in almost all cases are confident enough to put fear aside and expect the best without hesitating.

    Fear is the fuel that produces destruction, chaos, and loss. Faith is the fuel that produces success, greatness, and a positive attitude that affects all around you. Never walk in fear. In all things, say "I can do this. If anyone can do this, I can."

    Fear is mostly in the mind. Children are born with only the fears mentioned, falling and loud noises. In the process of growing up, we acquire so many fears its simply unbelievable.
    We just have to lean not to respond to irrational fear and press on towards our goals.

    I think it is more easy to worry than not to worry. I agree with you about listening to news regularly, i also discovered that it is all negative, and the more you take in the negative you also become negative and hopeless. When you wake up in the morning you need motivation and if you have feed your heart & mind with negatives the same it will give you. Your companion too, there are the ones who are optimistic and the ones to avoid the pessimistic - no matter the idea you share with them they will always find a reason why it cannot work...

    Great thread. Know your fears and learn how to overcome it. I can actually relate to this quote:

    Many of our fears are tissue-paper-thin, and a single courageous step would carry us clear through them. ~Brendan Francis

    We seem to have learned to fear when we shouldn't instead of having faith in ourselves and in our creator in guiding us is the right direction. Faith overcomes fear and those who are faithful have learned to control their fears.

    Great post, I think fear as we know it as humans is pretty much the root cause of every problem we have today whether it be greed, poverty, war etc. I don't actually think a child is born with fear exactly, more natural instincts to safeguard them against danger but it is they grow and 'learn' they take on board societies fears. The only thing we should ever fear is fear itself...

    • Fear = the forecast + expectation, with physiological markers (feelings) that things will go wrong.

      Faith = the forecast + expectation, with physiological markers (feelings) that things will go right.

      "the feeling" that what you believe "feels right", backed by your own experience and knowledge, giving you a "high degree of confidence".
