Fear is a prison of the mind which can hold us captive in both our thoughts and actions. Fear of emotional and psychological consequences can feel as daunting as physical fear and can cause similar physical responses.
Whether it is fear of failure, fear of being hurt, fear of loss or fear of trying new things, the list is endless and varied but the results are the same. You get trapped in a cycle of doubt and negative self-talk that paralyses you into inaction.
To break free from shackles of fear, it is important to be bold and brave. Taking small steps to free yourself from fear can get you started on the path to happiness and empowerment, but the final leap required is to make a decision that your whole being is opposed to fear takes an act of courage and daring.
