"Fear seems to be epidemic in our society. We fear beginnings; we fear endings.
We fear changing; we fear staying stuck. We fear success. We fear failure.
We fear living; we fear dying."
-Dr. Susan Jeffers, Ph.D.
This week, The Weekly Beet reports on five natural remedies to transform your fear into power. Mary Kent says relaaaaax, there is nothing to fear, but fear itself!
These days it's difficult to be fearless, as fear surrounds us from headlines to airlines! It's as if we breathe in a world where fear has become the new oxygen. Most people fear social settings, being alone, losing a job, public speaking, heights, flying, illness, and death. The symptoms of fear can be quite draining on the mind, the body, and the spirit, sometimes even leading to serious illness. In many cases, fear can become so strong that it manifests itself in the form of a panic attack or a phobia. If you know what we are talking about, The Beet Girls say you are not alone, as 911 million people around the world (over 40 million of these are in the United States) are living in fear! Dr. Susan Jeffers, Ph.D. believes that fear and indecision can be transformed into confidence and action. In her book, Feel The Fear and Do It Anyway, she explains how by understanding and embracing your fear, you are able to overcome it. Dr. Jeffers says, "It is reported that over 90% of what we worry about never even happens. That means that our negative worries have about a 10% chance of being correct. If this is so, isn't it possible that being positive is more realistic than being negative?" Dr. Jeffers' philosophy of handling whatever comes your way is what we call unBEETable!
