Fear and Excitement

The chemical release that triggers feelings of fear in our bodies is also responsible for triggering feelings of excitement. Fear and excitement are different sides of the same chemical coin. The label we choose put on a feeling therefore depends upon whether we have a positive mental attitude and are open to new experiences. If our self-esteem and confidence are low, we may feel afraid in the face of new opportunities, instead of the excitement we could be feeling if we have faith in ourselves and our ability to succeed.

We must practise seeing opportunities instead of obstacles. We must try to be excited instead of afraid.

Astonish yourself!

Life is full of tasks that we don’t want to do, it’s part of what makes us so strong. Take control of your fears and watch as you astonish yourself with your own strength!
