It’s Face Your Fear Week on Sage Grayson Coaching. I’m sharing posts about confronting your fears so you can live your happiest, most-authentic life.
Today, I want to know if you’ve ever had a good experience with fear.
Has fear ever been a good thing in your life?
It was a purposeful choice to name this series “Face Your Fear Week” instead of “Kill Your Fear” or “Destroy Your Fear” or “Beat the Livin’ Crap Out of Your Fear.”
Fear isn’t necessarily good or bad. It just is. It’s your body’s way of warning you about danger.
I really enjoyed the book The Gift of Fear, and I like the idea that fear can save us from bad situations or dangerous people.
In my life, fear shows up as procrastination. But even then it’s not always a bad thing. Sometimes my fear of failure will make me procrastinate, and then later I’ll find out that if I had gone through with whatever it was, I would have been in big trouble. Our subconscious minds can detect things that might not be apparent at first glance.
