Are You Addicted To Fear?

I have been very curious as to why some people always seem to talk about the negative aspects of life. Yes I get it. Life is a complicated and sometimes a messy endeavor. As a Brisbane Motivational speaker and Keynote presenter  I am here to try and give you support with simple, principle-based solutions to the challenges you face. I want to empower you to get along with others and become the best you.

If you are consistently  worrying about everything, over-analyze and over-think every situation, and its driving you and your family to the brink of exhaustion and anxiety then I think this article is for you. If you are seriously scared of all the bad things that can happen and experience anxiety all the time and also worry too much about what other people think of you and have negative noise in your head.  The you are probably Addicted To Fear!

A fear-a-holic is someone who is addicted to the experience of fear and anxiety such that it decreases their ability to function and negatively affects their relationships.

The good news is that you are not alone. Because everyone has there moments of experiences fear and uncertainty.  Even as a Motivational Speaker there a days that I hit the wall. But I have learned a few tips to help me bounce out of it pretty quickly.

Here are a few.

1) Admit you are powerless when dwelling in fear. Fear makes you feel weak, vulnerable, selfish and protective, and these emotions don’t serve you.


2) Share your fears

It is natural to keep your fears bottled inside, but holding on to fears can also make them seem worse. Reach out to a close friend or loved one to discuss how you’re feeling. Choose someone who will listen attentively without judging. If you don’t feel you can go to anyone you know personally, reach out to a counselor or an addiction treatment facility.

3) Write down your fears

If you’re not ready to verbalize your fears, write about them in a journal. Putting your fears into words can help you wrap your head around the situation and create a plan to deal with those feelings. You may feel better by simply getting those feelings out of your head and in front of you.

4) Focus on your immediate situation

Fear is rooted in the future. You worry about things that haven’t happened yet and most likely never will. Addiction recovery is often better approached one day at a time. Instead of looking down the road to create fears that won’t likely come true, bring yourself back to the present. Identify the immediate steps you need to take to start down the path to recovery.

Ask yourself if the thing you fear is reality in this moment. Most likely, the answer is no. For instance, you’re worrying you could lose your job in the future, but right now you are still employed. Focus on the things happening right now, so you can deal with the real issues to make progress toward your recovery.

5) Visualize Your Success 

We are unique creatures in that we can mentally simulate situations by remembering the past and visualizing the future. We can also play a hand at perhaps creating the future — at least in terms of preparing our emotional state for what may come. It’s a valuable tool and one that can lead to happiness when applied to specific goals. There is much research behind visualization and emotional changes, as it has been shown that positive thoughts have an impact on the brain’s biochemistry. Many psychologists ask people to imagine or picture what they would like in their life.

Whether its a Keynote Speaker, Corporate Speaker or Motivational Speaker that is required for your next event.  I am happy to customize any and all my presentations to meet your needs.

You don’t get what you want in life….You get what you work for!
