A Life Without Fear?

12 Apr

I did short workshop today at our regional career fair. I decided to be a little outside the box and do a talk about fear. I called it “Don’t Freak Out”. I was able to connect it to education, empowerment, confidence and all the other good things that suddenly become fantastic opportunities and experiences once you get your fears out of the way. I asked the participants what their life would look like if they didn’t have that fear.

Flying? Public speaking? Water? Big flocks of birds? (Hey, I’m not judging but stop watching that Alfred Hitchcock movie if it keeps freaking you out)!

What is your fear and what would your life look like if you didn’t have that heart pounding, sweaty palmed eye watering response every time your fear reared it’s ugly head?

Are you afraid of public speaking? Have you ever tried to picture yourself as a larger-than-life persona with the crowd hanging on your every word and eating out of your hand, you beaming with confidence and a swagger in your step, owning that audience?

Or, is water your nemesis? Can you picture yourself on a swanky yacht eating bonbons on a clear jewel blue sea, with the warmth of the sun on your cheeks. How would your life look if you could have that picture in your minds eye instead of the one that is causing you distress?

I totally own that one of my biggest fears is failure. The funny thing, is that I don’t recall actually ever failing anything…well perhaps second year biology, but I saw that one coming a mile away despite my best efforts. How can I miss what I’ve never really had? I love the saying, ” What would you do if you know you couldn’t fail?”

What would you do?
