When I look back on #TBT, sometimes I see pictures of myself when I was very young or in college, and what I see leaves me with mixed feelings.

Have you ever see the look of fear in someone’s eyes? Now picture the look of joy. And now the look of contentment …happiness, if you will. They’re easily recognizable, right?

By the time I was a young adult, fear pretty much ruled my day. I knew it. I could feel it a lot of the time. Finally, at the age of 27, I decided I wasn’t going to let fear rule my life and steal my joy, success, and freedom.

Easier said than done, right? As much as we want to step out of fear, it still keeps its grip on us.

Here are 3 simple tips to help put fear behind you and keep you moving forward.

  1. The first moment you realize you’re afraid, STOP. Take a moment to take breath two deeps breaths and clear your head. Separate yourself from the situation.
  2. Then, ask yourself what is really going on? Looking at the situation as an observer, is there something to truly fear NOW or is this an automated response for you?

    Once you get your answers,

  3. See yourself doing what it is you need to do in a supportive setting. SEE it in your mind. Run the successful scenario like a film through your head a few times until you own it.

Now you’re ready to go back with courage and strength as you’ve already seen yourself successfully moving through the now, non-existent barrier.

I know this works because I’ve been using this method to control my fear for decades. When I look at #TBT, it gives me cause for celebration ~ that young woman has been healed!

Are you being held back by fear? What do you see in your pictures?

You can do it! I believe in YOU!
