- Fear is the process which blocks movement from the known to unknown, comfort
zone to uncomfortable zone however it is our guide also. Fear is good as it
forces you the make fault free plans, backup plans and assures that you are
safe. We have fear of loosing job, so we have two options stick to the job, get
into loans or increase our skills so that we are more marketable, fear is guide
here. We have fear of health, so again two options live with fear as whats
happenning inside and just not do anything about it rather fight with fear or go
to doctors, do medical checkups, do physical exercises so fear helps if we use
it as a guide again.We have fear of our reputation so again two options we do
everything consistent with our image or learn to let go of reputation and people
and try new, again depends how we take fear.Fear is good if we use it as a guide
and do everything so that it gets lesser and lesser and it doesn\'t look like we
are taking wild chances.
Anxiety happens more when we are taking wild risks, students who prepares well
during the year and gives exams with peace will have less anxiety than someone
who took wild risks and didn\'t do anything over the year and now at exams and at
results his anxiety is very high. Again anxiety would generally mean that we
didn\'t prepare well, left things for last minute and sort of never took control
of the situation. Again it can be our guide for the future work and planning.
I believe no emotion is negative, labeling it as negative only creates
disconnection with the emotion and then we start to fight with the emotion
rather than the things that created the emotion. The things that created the
emotion are the trigger and many a times guide to self discovery. Welcome fear
and anxiety and ask them what can be done in future to grow with these emotions,
not exactly fighting with them but by acknowledging there presence always and
then looking at them as guide and not repeating same mistake in the future.
Label these emotions as positive and we will see that they teach us more.
