Make Fear Powerless

This week I have an activity that will help you see how some of your fears may not be based in reality. In fact, your fears may even contradict what you know to be true about yourself. This activity will help you see how you can finally put a stop to some of your fears.

This activity should take about 15 - 20 minutes.

  • You will need a pen and a piece of paper. Go find a quite area where you will not be disturbed. Be sure to turn off your cell phone.

  •  Draw a line across the top of the page and then one down the middle of the page so that you have two columns.

  • Write My Fears as a heading on the left side of the page.

  • Write My Strengths as a heading on the right side of the page.

  • Next, make a list under each heading. Write your fears on the left side and your strengths on right side.

When I did this I was absolutely amazed at what I learned out about myself. My fears directly contradicted my strengths. In other words, what I feared had no basis in reality.

I knew that I had certain strengths that I genuinely valued. With that in mind, if there was a fear related to a perceived strength then it was very easy for me to let it go and make it powerless; I could easily stop hanging on to any fears associated with my known strengths.

What did you learn about yourself? You can share it on my blog if you like.
