Question Your Fears to Move Past Them

30
Do you realise that suffering is optional? Several years ago I was going through a major upheaval in my life and most of the stress I was under was caused by my own fearful thoughts and self doubt.
One thing I learned (the hard way!) is that if you have a wish or a desire for something new and you start experiencing self-doubt about your abilities, or fearful thoughts about the unknown, then that is a sure sign that you are ready to move forward and take your life to the next level.
Self-doubt is nothing more than a battle that goes on in your mind when half of you is ready to grow and move forward and half of you wants to desperately hold on to the status quo.
This inner battle is a result of our limiting beliefs - we may not think we are good enough, smart enough, or brave enough - and these beliefs surface through our ego mind to protect us.
Unfortunately, even though our mind is trying to protect us it is also stopping us from creating the life we want.
The ego side of our mind tries to keep everything the same because we are within our comfort level.
Where we are now is the end result of our previous growth and knowledge, but in order to move forward we must move through the fear and the self-doubt.
As Einstein once said, "We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
" So how can we move through the fear and self-doubt? I discovered that when I believed what my mind tried to tell me, I suffered, I was fearful, I was concerned.
But that when I didn't believe them, I didn't suffer, and this is true for every human being.
I simply started questioning the fear and the self-doubt until I had exhausted every argument.
Our fears and worries are not real in the world around us - they only live in our minds.
And we have the ability to change our minds whenever we want.
Instead of desperately trying to change the world to match our thoughts about how things should be, by questioning these thoughts we can release the fear and self-doubt.
Freedom is as simple as that.
