We all have to deal with fear and anxiety in our life.
Our fears and anxieties can reduce our self-confidence and help prevent us from getting what we want.
One of the ways I find that is very helpful in managing my fears is to develop some goals and then focus on reaching those goals.
I found that developing goals will help you manage your fears because goals help us not to focus on our fears.
For instance, let’s say that you have to finish your report for work by the end of the week. If you focus on reaching that deadline, this will distract you from getting stressed and anxious. You will be focused on getting the report done for your boss instead of focusing on your fear of being late.
Developing certain goals will help you to gain the motivation in doing something.
Being motivated can help you in dealing with your stresses, but it will not get rid of them. I found that doing something you like will increase your motivation to do something besides worry and focusing on your anxieties.
Developing goals will help you to be active during your stressful times. When you are feeling stressed, you need to do something besides worry. You need to do an activity and be active. Setting goals will help you to keep busy instead of worrying about your problems. Once you accomplish your goals, you will be in a better mood.
As an author of a managing fear book, it is still very important to talk to a professional regarding your fears and anxieties.
Developing goals and doing something you like to do will help you to not focus on your fears, but it is still important to get professional help for your anxieties.
