Why is there fear? Is it based on reality? Do you find yourself seeking shelter in the arms of fear rather than taking up a challenge? Hmmm?
Fear is often no more than an over-active imagination. It’s not real until you make it real. If you keep thinking about it, guess what, your actions will actually be influenced by that fear, unconsciously of course! So, watch out!
If you have the ability to imagine all kinds of terribleness, you also have the capacity to imagine overcoming that terrible fear and imagine positive outcomes. ‘How?’ I hear you say. Simple – step back and reach out for hope. Hope sees the problems, and at the same time looks for solutions.
So, if you lose your job don’t hold the fear, “now what am I going to do?” Look at it as a chance to maybe have a career change or even to pursue a lifelong dream. Now, did you ever think of that?
In the tug of war between Fear vs. Hope, Hope always wins! Hope persists, never leaving you even for a second. Even when you think there’s nothing left, a little remains – and that’s all you need to hold onto the promise of a better tomorrow. Hope, as the saying goes, springs eternal.
