We all know the feeling of being afraid, but why do we fear at all?
Its an aspect of the mind which gives you intell about a situation. Its your sometimes ’saver‘ – which causes to be afraid when a situation might be dangerous.
If you stand on a tall building and look down, it activates and tells you to not overdo it. Otherwise something bad might happen.
It is as well the system that lets you shake when it takes over because the fear got too great. Freezing in place as a result.
Now how can we ‚deactivate‘ this mechanism?
There are 2 ways:
Throw yourself at your fear and take all of it at once. Which depends on the situation and can cause a shock to your entire body. Only people who believe in themselves and know that they wont fall down should use it! And NO you shouldnt throw yourself from the highest building to become fearless to hights.
Giving yourself small doses of your fear until you fully adapt. For expample: If youre afraid of snakes, you can try first by just watching it from distance and everytime coming closer until you feel good enough to touch it without getting panic.
This method is for everybody and works always! Just be consistent!
If you want to deactivate it fully, you might get a problem because not being able to feel fear in some situations might cause actions that can harm you.
But heres how you do it:
You will not listen anymore what your head says and does in the situation. This means you will rip away the momentum of your mind that is trying to tell you, to not do this. It is a sort of direct confrontation but against everything.
The more often you do it, the easier it will be and one day you will not really fear anything, anymore. BUT it can come back in new situations!
Fearing nothing is cool yes, but not being able to read the difference in the situation has nothing to do with it.
If you want to fight a polar bear with bare hands and dont fear it, you will probably still die if you attack! XD
See ya happy people and have a great thursday! 🙂
