A lot of people live their lives in fear; fear has a hold on them and they live every day of their lives in it.
Fear is like a cage; if you don’t make any move, you would only become trapped in it.
Fear can have a terrible hold on a person and it comes with a lot of negatives; below are some of the negative things fear does to you.
1. FEAR HOLDS YOU FROM LIVING YOUR LIFE TO THE FULLEST
When fear has a grip on you, you become enslaved to it and you don’t live your life as you ought to. With fear in your life, you become bound and you don’t live your life to the fullest; you become caged while you watch others make the most out of their lives.
2. YOU LOSE YOUR SELF-BELIEF
Fear has a funny way of making you feel inferior and disbelieving in your abilities, while you see others as superior. Fear makes you believe that you aren’t good enough and it takes away your self-confidence, self-belief and self-respect.
3. YOU MISS OUT ON LIFE’S OPPORTUNITIES
The fear of the unknown and the fear of ‘what if’ make people lose out on a lot of opportunities; these fears make you remain where you are and makes you see every opportunity as high risks that you should avoid.
4. FEAR STEALS YOUR PEACE
You can’t know peace when you live in fear. Fear steals your rest of mind and makes you unhappy. You would hardly see a person who’s living in fear happy; fear takes away your joy, your happiness and your rest of mind.
5. FEAR KILLS YOUR STRENGTH
Fear takes away your strength and your strength is needed to make big decisions; your strength is needed to persevere during hard times, but fear just makes you weak.
6. FEAR MAKES YOU UNABLE TO SEE PAST YOUR PAST FAILURES
Fear makes your past failure seem so huge and insurmountable. With fear, instead of learning from your past failures, you regress further in life.
7. FEAR MAKES IT HARD FOR YOU TO MAKE GOOD DECISIONS FOR YOUR LIFE
When you become trapped in fear, it kills your ability to make sound judgement concerning your life and this would put your future, dreams and goals at risk.
Come out of the shell of fear; live your life to the fullest today.
