Are you trapped by your fears?

Many people long for a different life, but often stay stuck in unhappy situations due to fear. It might be fear of change, fear of failure, or even fear of success.

Some people fear change. It can be very stressful and make them feel out of control.

Some people fear failure. They think they are just making a fool of themselves and everyone will laugh at them for daring to try to do something different.

Some people fear success. Once you’re successful, you’re held to a higher standard.

Some people see challenges as obstacles that block them, things they can never overcome. Other people see obstacles as opportunities to think outside the box and go for it no natter what.

The important first step for positive change in your life is to set a goal.

The second thing is to tune out the negative self-talk:

“I can’t do it.”
“I’m wasting my time.”
“I can’t change.”

…or any other negative thoughts that run through your mind like a non-stop radio channel.

If you give these thoughts attention, you will believe them and won’t take any steps on the path to your goals. The solution is to be practical and break down your goal into action steps. Focus on actions, not thoughts. You should soon see positive change in your life.
