Stop building horrifying mental scenarios about what it might happen if you fail.
I believe that fear has a positive side in our life, if we think precisely that it takes away from dangerous situations that it might put us at risk. Remember! We should have balanced fear, because too much fear leads to limit our thinking and limit our life too. And it can turn into major obstacles and difficulties to success.
Well, at the beginning of one stage of my life stages, i was too careless through my school’s matters, never care about my studying, never did my homework which it had been assigned by our teachers on daily basis , noting that i was in 5th grade. Therefore, i was not doing my homework when I go to school next day, while teachers were checking out students’ assignments during the class. Later, they found out that i did not do my homework as per requested for the whole year not for one or two days only, Definitely, it has affected on me a lot, led me to stay at the same grade for the next year, not getting to next grade which I shall be in 6th grade, i got crying too much, when i got the results at the end of that year, as my ex classmates had passed the grade successfully, and promoted to sixth grade, but for me i stayed at the same class. However, at this point, i decided to change everything in my life to prevent this situation from happening again to me.
In that light, the concept of fear did not exist in my life’s dictionary, and do not know what kind of feeling, I will get when fear comes to me. But because of fear of failure that feeling started emerging, in a result, i took this fear as a positive means to support me for going to next levels of my life. As i began to have my responsibilities seriously and not to try be careless anymore due to what it had happened to me previously. Of course, i promised myself not make it happen again. Hence, i started studying hard because i do not want that bad feelings to come back again, it was really disturbing me and it has affected me negatively. Anyway, i use fear in my studying period and get it into my side positively until i succeeded in all stages of my studying. And i finally did it.
That’s why i counted fear is a great technique to help me success. As Fear should not be too much, but in a feasible way is acceptable. But you need to know that you can take fear in every field not specifically in studying, i know you know that, but i just wanted to remind you!
Finally, think always about how fear could block many paths from passing it and put us at risk as well, if we did not use it efficiently. I remember just a comment from one of my favourite readers here in WP my dear Ortensia said “Always look at the glass half full my friend and always start thinking we can do it but if we won’t it’s not the end of the world……something good will come up anyway” you can check out her blog is full of amazing, and realistic stories from the heart and it exists in her site.

Replace negative fear into positive fear, and enjoy your success. As i mentioned in one of my previous posts, thoughts are choices.
