3 Tips to Conquer Your Fear on Face Your Fears Day

To face our fears is to conquer self doubt, hesitation and, ultimately, overcome the things that paralyze and haunt our existence. Just the thought of looking over a cliff (I’m terrified of heights and falling) or being affectionate and verbally expressive (I’m terrified of being vulnerable) terrifies me. Yet I work through my fears daily. I’ve climbed ladders, swung off a rope and into a cargo net, swam with the fishes (I’m also scared of deep water), and have opened up to Paco little by little.

If you have not freed yourself of fear, you have the opportunity to do so tomorrow. On, October 9, 2012 it is Face Your Fears Day. 

Here are some tips on how you can face your fears during this national holiday:

  • Start small. Not everyone can bungee jump or skydive to conquer their fear of heights. I definitely cannot. It may also not be wise to hold a tarantula to conquer arachnophobia. Starting with baby steps can lead to bold actions but, for now, for tomorrow, how about you just inch your way toward the fire escape or go to a zoo.
  • Ask why. Fears don’t just drop on our heads like pigeon poop while we’re walking down the street; they stem from somewhere, something! Take tomorrow to ask yourself some questions. When did your fear begin? What triggers the fear? Is it something you can cope with on your own or do you need therapy? Self analysis and reflection can often be scarier but finding the root of the fear helps long term.
  • Find a buddy. So you want to take the plunge and face your fear of heights tomorrow. No baby steps. You are READY! I suggest you call up a friend that you trust to accompany you in your adventure. Your buddy can encourage you to go for it or hold your hand when your knees buckle.
No matter how you decide to conquer your fears tomorrow, remember that it is a necessary step! Because releasing our fear brings us closer to a fulfilled life.
