Fear- Don’t run away from it, face it

I was reading a book titled “The Monk who sold his Ferrari” written by Robin Sharma, the motivational speaker and author. In one of the chapters he has explained very beautifully that most of us tend to run away or have some kind of resistance against the thing that is new to us. The reason for this is that most of us have the fear of failure. But one interesting fact is that the more one runs away from fear, the more it takes us in its grips. The best way to overcome fear is to face it.

Many of us have some fear or the other. Some of us do not like to swim in water as we have a fear of getting drowned whereas some of us refrain from speaking in public as we think people will laugh or we might not be able to open up properly. These things become quite dangerous in the later stages of life when we start our career where we are faced with continuous challenges on every other day. Hence, it is better to start working on our weak points and take steps to convert them to our strengths. It is only then when we will be able to climb the ladder of success.

Well, looking at other side of the coin I think it is quite important that you face fear after a certain time because if you are fear then you can know or point out your limitations where you need improvement. Thus, the fearless also needs to fear and this is not because that he or she does not have to face fear but to know what are the things they also resist and how they can overcome it.
