What Your Fears Really Mean

Most of the things we’re afraid of, aren't.

Fear is sneaky like that. Always wearing disguises to throw us off.

THE GOOD NEWS IS: If you can identify the fear behind the fear, you can beat it.

More than that – you can use it.

As a compass.
As a fuel source.
As an invitation to evolve.

Today we’re going to explore a collection of fears, the bigger fears behind them and to convert them into something more useful:
It’s not the fear of falling.
It’s the fear of letting go.

It’s not the fear of death.
It’s the fear of insignificance.

It’s not the fear of boredom.
It’s the fear of not mattering.

It’s not the fear of change.
It’s the fear of feeling helpless.

It’s not the fear of commitment.
It’s the fear of choosing wrongly.

It’s not the fear of love.
It’s the fear of trusting the wrong person and getting your heart stepped on.

It’s not the fear of making a poor impression.
It’s the fear of meeting someone and then being forgotten.

It’s not the fear of termination.
It’s the fear of feeling unwanted.

It’s not the fear of being replaced.
It’s the fear of discovering that you never actually had a place.

It’s not the fear of going it alone.
It’s the fear of leaving behind the world you know.

It’s not the fear of intimacy.
It’s the fear of giving yourself away and being rejected.

It’s not the fear of losing.
It’s the fear of not living up to your own standards.

It’s not the fear of moving away.
It’s the fear of feeling guilty for leaving.

It’s not the fear of poverty.
It’s the fear of shame.

It’s not the fear of reflection.
It’s the fear of confrontation.

It’s not the fear of saying no.
It’s the fear of feeling like an asshole.

It’s not the fear of selling.
It’s the fear of losing your audience.

It’s not the fear of speaking.
It’s the fear of amplifying.

It’s not the fear of success.
It’s the fear of the changes success will bring.

It’s not the fear of technology.
It’s the fear of irrelevancy.

It’s not the fear of winning.
It’s the fear of living up to victory’s expectations.

It’s not the fear of writing.
It’s the fear of nakedness.

It’s not the fear of losing love.
It’s the fear of realizing that you never had it in the first place.

REMEMBER: Fear is sneaky.

Don’t let it trick you.
