“To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom. Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.”- Bertrand Russell

To conquer fear, you must first conquer yourself.

“The privilege of a life time is being who you are.”- Joseph Campbell

Life is not easy. Do not let fear stop you from doing what you are here to do. Because the purpose of your life is to grow, is to increase, is to challenge yourself. Do not give in to fear. No matter what is going on in your life, do not let fear defeat you. As Edward Burke once said, “… The concessions of the weak are the concessions of fear.” Do not let that happen to you. Yes, life is not easy, but you can make it better for yourself. To make your life better, you can try these strategies:

How to choose life over fear

Do what you are afraid to do

“Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared.”- Eddie Rickenbacker

Stop living your life in fear. You are not here to live in fear; you are here to live in love, to enjoy your life, to face your own demons. Whatever you want to do, go for it. It is okay to fear, but do not let it stop you. Do not give in to it. If you want to do well in your life, you must be brave. As the old saying goes, “Fortune belongs to the brave.” So if you want to be successful in your life, you must be brave. You must have the courage to do what you are afraid to do.

Nothing is impossible

Before you get frustrated with yourself, it is important to know that you have what it takes to pursue whatever you want to pursue in your life. Do not let fear stop you from going after your dreams. You can do some things really well, but not everything. If you are to move forward, you must look for what you are really good at and do it really well. Dr Robert Schuller said, “Today’s accomplishments were yesterday’s impossibilities.” You can achieve your dreams if you have the courage to follow your path.

Always be grateful for what you have

Always look at what you have left. Never look at what you have lost.”- Dr Robert Schuller

Focus on what you have, not what you do not have. Gratitude is the way to bring more things into your life. When you are happy for what you have, you will have more things to celebrate. Life is not perfect, but do not let that stop you from living your life. According to Robert Herjavec, “None of us can achieve perfection in everything we do, but all of us can be as good as our abilities enable us to be.” That is true. You can be good at something, but not at everything. So if you want to succeed, follow what you are good at.

Be Yourself

You can achieve anything you want if you are your true self. When you know who you are, you will know what to avoid. Don’t change because people want you to change. Before you change, you must know why you are changing. If you do not know why you are doing something, then it is not the right thing for you. Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” No matter what you are facing in your life, do not give up on yourself. Be yourself. When you are yourself, your true self, you can grow yourself.

“In dreams begin responsibilities.”- William Butler Yeats

In your own dreams begin your responsibilities for your life. You are responsible for your life, for whatever is happening in your life. It is your responsibility to live your life, to change your life, to do great things, and to treat yourself with love. Taking responsibility for your life is about you. It is about taking action to change your life.

Responsibility is the key to success. Responsibility is the way forward. If you want to grow in your life, in your career, you must take responsibility for your life. It is important to take responsibility for your life, if you want to grow. And remember, the higher you go in your life, the higher you go in your career, the more responsibilities you will have. So to do more in your life, here are four easy ways to live a responsible life.

Stop doing what is not working

“If you do what you’ ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.”- Tony Robbins

Remember that you are not going to be here forever. So why are you wasting your precious time? If something is not working out for you, stop doing it. If what you are doing is not working, if you are not getting the right results, then it means you are responsible for changing it. You are responsible for making it better. No one is going to do it for you. It is your life, so you are responsible for changing it.

Take risks

Yes, it is hard to take risks. But without risks, there can be no growth. If you are not willing to take risks, you are not going to grow. But if you have the courage to take risks, calculated risks, you will grow. Things will work out for you. As Jim Rohn once said, “If you are not willing to risk the unusual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.” My question is: Do you want to settle for less? If you do not want to settle for less, you must be willing to take calculated risks.

Always look for opportunities to help yourself

“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others.”- Brian Tracy

Remember that opportunities are everywhere. God has a lot of things in store for you. If want to succeed in your life, always look for opportunities to help yourself, to grow yourself. Do not run away from problems. When you are faced with a problem, take the opportunity to explore it. In his book The Secret to Attracting Luck: 50 Ways to Manifest Abundance & Good Fortune, Richard Webster writes, “Problems are surprisingly useful… as they provide opportunities to learn and grow.” So when you are faced with problems, take advantage of them.

You must change to survive

“It doesn’t matter how many things you want to change, but to increase your luck you need to make just one change at a time. If you try to do too many simultaneously, you won’t succeed at any of them.”- Richard Webster

We are all changing. We change every day. And everything around us is changing. So if you want to succeed, you must embrace change. Do not fight change, embrace it. Pearl Bailey once said, “You must change in order to survive.” To survive, you must change. You must do new things. You must face your fears. So are you willing to embrace change?
