Sometimes it’s so easy to stay stuck and believe that what is, is always going to be, because change can be hard. Change brings fear and fear, as nature intended it to do helps keep us safe by creating fight, flight or freeze responses.
While you don’t want your fear to go away completely, staying stuck in the fear response keeps you in a vicious cycle, spinning your wheels, procrastinating and intimidated from moving toward what you really want from your life.
Most of the fear you face in the 21st century is emotional, mental and cultural.
Do you fear embarrassment or humiliation? Being criticized or made to feel blame or shame? Do you fear your own self-worth?
Facing those types of mental and emotional fears is not always pretty. And when those and fear likes them are far too normal in your life, you may think it’s impossible for you to break their cycle. It’s not.
It only feels impossible because the break you’re looking for is likely sitting in your blind spot. To make matters more difficult, your blind spot AND the fear response typically move every time you do.
That’s why it’s helpful to have another person you trust on the outside looking in with you. They can see things that you might miss or dismiss as ‘that’s just the way it is’.
You don’t overcome fear. You learn to recognize it. You learn ways to get relief from it. You practice breaking the cycle, so you don’t stay stuck in it.
That’s exactly what Nancy Marie Stubbs’ webinar Getting Relief from Procrastination, Self-Doubt, Perfectionism and Intimidation, offers you.
Each of the responses to fear – freezing, fleeing or fighting – are attempts to keep you safe from unknown emotional or mental pain.
The human survival instinct is strong. Only when the pain you’re currently experiencing because of your fear response becomes unbearable, then you’ll begin taking actions that break the cycle.
Nancy shares three of those actions in her webinar. They are:
- Deep Breathing
- Forgiveness & Empathy
- Shining & Sharing
The webinar also helps you recognize when you need to use the methods so you can gain relief from your relationship with fear.
