Fear is Your Superpower

Uncategorized Jul 20, 2020

Fear is a lot like fire. It can be your friend or your enemy. As the old saying goes “Fire is a good servant, but a bad master.” The same goes for fear. If you can use your fear, it can become one of your greatest assets—almost like a superpower. If you don’t know how to control your fear, it can stop you from ever going after the things you want to do in life.

Will Smith said “Everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear.”

You can learn to inoculate yourself to fear by exposing yourself to small doses of it daily.

Are you afraid to call someone? Good—that’s your #1 goal for the day. Call them.

Are you afraid to work on a big project so you keep procreating? Good—face that project today and do SOMETHING to move it forward.

Are you afraid to speak up at work? Boom—that’s the goal today. Speak up.

Learn to embrace the butterflies. When you’re about to do something that you fear, embrace the feeling. This is almost the same feeling we get when we’re on a roller coaster. The thrill of potential danger—but in reality the things we want to do aren’t usually that dangerous!

How dangerous is it to call someone? To speak up? To work on a big project? There are far worse things in life.

The great thing is that if you learn to expose yourself to fear and new circumstances on a daily basis—you will become a stronger, more confident, and happier individual.

Don’t be a slave to your comfort zone. Seek discovery, growth, and learn to relish the thrill that goes along with it.

Here’s a fantastic video from Mike Tyson’s original trainer Cus D’Amato on the power of fear. The very fear that you avoid may just be your superpower.
