Succesful Living Part 4 - Overcoming FEAR

Over the last few years Fear is spreading like a disease more then ever; economical crises, violence, unrest, epidemics, natural disasters and not to mention some of our own personal fears of rejection, failure or losing control.

Some fears are hardwired into the human brain to protect us against natural dangers and ensure our survival - Others are not. These latter Fears can be overcome. It may not always be easy, but there are ways.

I have chosen 5 quotes from famous people that resonate with me and also reflect my own experience and observations of how to overcome all those fears that arise from our perceptions.


'Decide that you want it more than you are afraid of it.' - Bill Cosby


'Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.' - Ambrose Redmoon


'The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.'

- Elbert Hubbard

Just Happening

'You are a happening in this ocean of consciousness. Your heart beats by itself; you're not making it beat. Your breath moves by itself, sleep comes, you feel hunger, you feel thirsty, you feel good, you feel bad. All those phenomenon are happening in your life. When this realization comes, a deep relaxation, a trust, a feeling of "at home" and fullness arises in you. That is surrender.' –

- Sri Sri Ravishankar

Nothing to Lose

'What are you afraid of? What do you think you will lose? Just wake up and see you have nothing to lose in the first place! And, even if you think you have something, how long can you hold on to it?' - Sri Sri Ravishankar

Which quote resonates most with you? All I would like to add is this - Face your Fears, acknowledge them, look at them one by one and then decide what is more important: Your Fear or that what you want to achieve, to do, to create or to be, it is very helpful to move beyond them.

You can't decide? I say that's ok too. Let it be and relax.

With my best wishes for your success,
