Heal the Fear: How to Create Habits That Defeat Your Fears




Report Abuse


Fear is a driving force for much of human behavior. Studies show that most people will do more to avoid pain than they will to gain pleasure. Pain is a significant component of decision-making. 

Consider some of the common fears that drive us: 

  • Fear of failure 
  • Fear of embarrassment 
  • Fear of rejection 
  • Fear of physical harm 
  • Fear of death 
  • Fear of public speaking 
  • Fear of financial challenges 
  • Fear of losing a job 
  • Fear of losing a loved one 
  • Fear of being alone 
  • Fear of letting others down 

Our fears control our behaviour. If there’s something you want to do, but don’t, fear is likely the cause. Mediocrity is one of the primary symptoms of a life directed by fear. How much does fear drive your decisions? If you’re being honest with yourself, fear is a significant part of your life.

When we avoid fear, our self-esteem takes a hit, too. We know what we should do, but we’re not quite “brave” enough to make it happen. 

Fortunately, dealing with fear is a skill. You can learn to feel less fear and learn to act despite fear. Fear and the response to fear become habits over time. You can create new habits to bypass the fear response. New habits can also be developed to grow your courage.
