Move Through Your Fear to Tap the Energy on the Other Side

Move through your fear and stress…

When you move through your fear you manage both your time and your energy.

You see, making the most of every moment is not just a matter of time management.  That may seem an odd thing for a time management coach to say, but it’s true. And it’s important.

Living each moment fully is a matter of energy management, too.  If you neglect this vital piece, you will not be finding time; you’ll just be working harder and faster, but feeling depleted and less and less productive.

One of the biggest energy drains that we all experience is F-E-A-R.  This debilitating, initiative-sapping emotion is something that we all experience.  It can be blindingly big, or insidious.  Either way, it keeps you from accessing your full potential and from using your time as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Your fear is normal…

The first thing that it’s important to take in is this fact: If you are afraid, you have company. It’s a human emotion — a feeling that we all share. How it manifests may be individual; but the emotion is universal.  You can expect it.

And what you should NOT expect is that you will be able to rid your life of fear.

So the knee-jerk, human reaction to fear is to pull away from it.  But my prescription is exactly the opposite.

Move through your fear — how?

It’s important to respect your feelings and gauge the seriousness of your fear. However, more often than not, the best course is to move through your fear and “Do it anyway.”

This is simple and quite profound.

Fear is debilitating — even paralyzing.  Your choices are to let it stop you in your tracks or to do the following:

  • Name it what it is – first and foremost.  Don’t let it keep whispering and diverting your energy into worry and spinning anxieties.
  • Assess it.  Ask yourself, “Is there really something here to be afraid of?  If your Inner Adult voice tells you yes, then you need to respect this.
  • Take action.  Nine times out of ten, our fears are echoes of things that are no longer operative in our lives.  So nine times out of ten, you need to “just do it.”

The more quickly you can name, assess, and then act on whatever is scaring you, the less time and energy these fears will eat up.  It’s a pretty simple equation, and you will be amazed at the difference it can make in your life.

So, how will you move through your fear today?  What will be your first step?
