Week Five Overcoming Fear Audio Message
Walking Outside of Fear
Have you ever wondered what is stopping you from getting what you want in life? Have you ever thought it was fear?
No one wants to believe that we can have so much fear, but I have watched first hand how fear can stop us from achieving our goals. I have seen how fear can make someone depressed or fill them with anxiety. I have seen fear rob us as it is the greatest thief there is yet we allow ourselves to be robbed daily by it.
Do you recall the last time you wanted to do something so intensely, but fear got in your way? Do you remember a time when you wanted to feel better, but fear was dragging you down? Well don’t worry we all have those moments when we are overcome by fear.
I remember when I wanted to go back to school to get my Masters and Ph.D., however, I let fear get in the way for many years. Finally in my early thirties, I decided to look at my fear head on and find out what I was afraid of and why.
Of course, I was afraid I was not smart enough once I worked through those fears. Using the process in this guidebook I was able not only to go back to school, but I was able to go back and achieve great grades and graduate top in my class. So what does that tell you? It says that we all have fear and fear is something that we can work through.
This guidebook will show you the path to overcome the fears that are stopping you from realizing your dreams. Are you afraid of committing to a relationship ,having more responsibility at work, riding in a car or are you just afraid to be happy? Lets face your fears and be happy, ride in the car, get the promotion and have a great relationship. Download Walking Outside of Fear Now!

Disassemble the Fear According to the media this is the “Age of Fear.” Fear at all levels does destroy lives. Whenever we allow fear to govern our actions, fear will remove our ability to live a love-based existence. We should not underestimate fear, and what fear can do. Fear can twist itself in whatever way necessary for fear to survive, and fear can disguise itself as love…
We know that some fears are healthy for us and keep us safe; I am referring to the fear that prevents you from doing what you want. It interferes with you in communication and prevents you from feeling good about yourself. So let’s tackle this thief called fear.
This week will address the issue of fear. This guidebook has more writing for you than the others. I suggest you print out the Walking Outside of Fear Guidebook or have a spiral notebook ready for this section.
Now, before we begin working through the book I suggest you take a few minutes to write your own thoughts on fear.
My definition of fear
What I would do without fear holding me back
Let’s work through the Walking Outside of Fear Guidebook Guide Book. Take your time. Stop and reflect as you go take a walk and it is okay if you need to stop when you feel the need. After you are done I want you to be conscious of when fear limits your actions. Write them down and ask yourself did the fear stop you from achieving your goal or save you from harm.
Part 2 Letting Go of Fear
I was once working with a client and they refused to let go of fear. In fact, the more we worked together, the harder they held onto their fears. Finally, one day I got the courage to just confront this person and I asked why they were holding onto their fear so hard. They said “Because it’s comfortable. It’s all I know.” In that moment, I got it. I understood that we hold onto fear because it is what we know. Since we were children fear was indoctrinated in us. Don’t do this or else, or you best do this or else. Our every move was programmed on fear. It seems like that is how we learned.
This fear makes it impossible to enjoy what we have. We are afraid that our happiness and successes could be taken from us. Some of us learned this through punishment, and some of us learned this through feeling uncomfortable with change.
My favorite author Don Miguel Ruiz, author of the Four Agreement and Beyond Fear says, “Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive – the risk to be alive and express what we really are.”
So let’s begin to tackle this fear of being who we really are. I would like you to just sit for a second and close your eyes, and imagine being fearless. Sit with that feeling for a moment, and start reading the Walking Outside of Fear Guidebook.
Part 3 Anger
Know that as you work through your fear, you might experience some anger. Most angry people are simply people who are frightened and they use anger to hide their fear. So if you become angry as we work through some of the fear guidebook, then it is okay. Your fears are buried very deep, it will be hard to see and difficult to find as the anger protects fear and keeps it safe. So allow the anger to come out in a safe and productive manner.
This is very important. Know if you experience fear, take a break. Know when enough is enough. Tackling fears that may be as old as you are is not easy. If you feel that you get shortness in breath, or rapid heart beat and symptoms of an anxiety attack, just take a few deep breaths. Follow one of your meditations or go for a walk.
Okay you are ready to walk through fear, good luck and refer to the meditation audio and video as often as you need and as you walk outside of your fears, remember to walk in peace…
