Do you ever feel stagnant? Held back by something yet you cannot quite put your finger on it?
Perhaps it is fear: fear of the unknown, fear of failure or even fear of change.
Fear becomes an obstacle in every person’s life at some point. The key is to understand what fear really is, what may be causing fear in your life and how to manage it. In Eckhart Tolle’s “The Power of Now”, he reminds the reader that as long as you are present (live in the moment), fear cannot exist. Fear only exists in the unknown. You are only capable of dealing with the here and now – what is present in this very moment. It is truly impossible to deal with something that hasn’t happened yet. Life becomes simplified when we remember this simple rule. When I begin to feel fear, I remind myself to stay present. What am I faced with at this very moment?
Fear is simply our mind’s way of projecting a situation that has not yet happened…the unknown.
