"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure..."

-- Marianne Williamson

The bad news is...
the world is full of fear

  • Fear of intimacy
  • Fear of spiders
  • Public speaking fear
  • Fear of driving
  • Fear of commitment, etc.

Whatever the fear, someone, somewhere, is suffering because of it!

The good news is...

  • the world is full of people overcoming fears! And that's what this page is all about - how you, me, everyone overcome our fears.

Real-life examples. Right here. Right now. Won't you share too!

It could be how you overcame your fear of being alone (fear of abandonment), your fear of snakes, your fear of falling, your fear of clowns - even your fear of long words (aka hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia, believe it or not!).

Whatever fear you've had, we'd like you to share you how overcame your fear - fill in the form below.



How to overcome fear - what I say

Now I'm no expert at overcoming fears, believe me, but I do have a much better understanding about what causes fear in the first place! And, by and large, it's usually about childhood fears that were not properly addressed at the time by either parent or child.

Still, I didn't get where I am today by not knowing how to overcome fear! (To a degree, anyway - and neither did you!) So I'm going to remind us all about overcoming fears in general - facing fear, as it were - and then I'm going to get the ball rolling by explaining how I overcome one of my fears.


So... How To Overcome Fears?

What causes fear? Who knows, really! It's much more important, I believe, to understand how to get past your fear. And you do that by taking these 3 steps:

  1. The first act in overcoming fears is recognising we have the fear.

  2. The second act is taking relevant action

  3. And the third act - I humbly suggest - is sharing your experiences below, with the rest of the world. Go on! Show us if you can do it, we can too! Even if it's not the biggest fear you've faced up to - tell us, anyway! And it might encourage you to face that 'biggie in your life' the next time...

In short, taking action cures fear!

And that includes the action of sharing how you overcome your fears, even if you haven't quite got there yet!
