That thing we fear doing and then finally we do it, how often do we then immediately realise it wasn’t that bad and what was there to fear?
The answer is…every single time because nothing is as bad as what we fear.
When the mind creates fear it is always the fear of something in the future, whether it’s in 10 minutes from now or a week.
The future is a construct in our mind and not real. So essentially we are fearing something that’s not real.
Once we can realise that our fear is based on nothing other than our thoughts, then we can more easily get over the initial hurdle of staring something.
The feeling of nothing to fear can start to be addictive and habit forming as long as we don’t allow the future to creep in.
