There is no blame involved when you realise that you are afraid.
Most people are (unfortunately) and that is what creates stress.
Yes, stress is fear-based.
Do not beat yourself up about it; it is not your fault and happily, it is just a habit which you can change.
Accept it, spend time understanding it if you must but whatever you do, move on from it!
Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death.

2 - You lash out mentally at those around you.
3 - You focus on failure.
4 - You conjure up negative meanings in the words and silence of others.
5 - You try but fail to focus on your objectives.
6 - You feel desperately lost.

9 - You see conspiracies at every turn to keep you down.
10- You are verbally uncommunicative or abrupt in your speech (which is uninviting even though circumstances may have you in a bind).
11- You brood about the unfairness of your situation.
12- You resist the overtures of others (even non-verbal gestures).

14- Your sleep is restless or non-existent and you wake feeling listless.
15- You feel fingers are being pointed at you.

17- You feel yourself sliding down the slippery slope of despair.
You block your dream when you allow your fear to grow bigger than your faith.
~Mary Manin Morrissey

19- You feel that no one cares (which may or may not be true).
20- You refuse to say your affirmations or do anything to maintain an upbeat attitude.
21- You often think "oh what's the use...
" and are tempted to give up.
22- You lie to concerned friends when asked if everything is okay.
23- You succumb to emotional eating, drinking or any of the other negative aspects which typify compulsive behaviour.
24- The final outcome being that you begin to limit your legitimate needs and wants and end up completely blocking and/or sabotaging yourself in the process.
All 24 points are based on your perception.
If you take a step back and observe, you will realise that your feelings and the reality of the situation do not match.
You are probably creating a doomsday scenario from one adverse event.
Self-flagellation is the typical modus operandi when you feel that you have failed (because things are not going your way or the way you think they should).
Here are some suggestions to clear up this negativity and myopia: SOLUTIONS AND SUGGESTIONS MEDITATE at least twice a day for twenty minutes.
Meditation is relaxation so don't sweat it.
Choose the time in a calm space free of distractions and sit or lie there for a while.
You can also do a walking meditation where you consciously pay attention to each step you take.
BREATHE CONSCIOUSLY three times when you feel yourself spiralling out of control.
Take the first deep breath and as you release it, relax your facial muscles and smile wide; With the second deep breath, hunch your shoulders as high as you can and lower them as you exhale; Inhale and fill your stomach as large as possible on that third breath.
Hold it for a count of three, then exhale, slowly drawing your stomach inward as hard as possible.
Repeat for five minutes or as long as you wish.
PRACTISE THE EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE (EFT).
Find a practitioner in your area.
EFT is a non-invasive, gentle and extremely effective finger-tapping acupressure method - like acupuncture but without the needles.
You will be tapping on yourself, with the expert's guidance, to identify the hidden reason behind your particular dysfunction and clear it.
Science and psychology have isolated the one prime cause for success or failure in life.
It is the hidden self-image you have of yourself.
Bob Proctor
CONFIDE IN SOMEONE outside of your immediate circle of family and friends.
You will gain a clearer perspective and focus by listening to someone else's opinion who is unconnected with the situation.
READ 20 PAGES OF AN INSPIRATIONAL BOOK EVERY DAY.
I think it's Les Brown who suggested this.
There's a plethora of choice out there from Chicken Soup for the Soul books, and others by Les Brown, Bob Proctor, Napoleon Hill, James Allen, the poet Khalil Gibran (The Prophet is particularly powerful), and so on.
RECORD YOUR DREAMS.
They not only tell you where you are psychologically; they also clearly indicate where you are headed (with the particular mindset).
BE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE.
Walk, dance, jump on a trampoline for five minutes, jog in place for five minutes, etc.
Physical activity speeds up blood circulation and you start to feel good; it is impossible to exercise and feel unhappy; your body will not allow it.
TAKE ACTION.
This is most important.
It doesn't matter what you do and even if it is unrelated to your particular challenge of the moment, act on whatever comes to mind.
It will free you from the stasis in which you find yourself.
The Universe is holding its collective breath while you take positive actions to harmonise your vibrational energy and realign yourself with a positive outcome.
Action vanquishes fear.
Unmasking fear of failure or fear of success dissipates it.
Stop being a slave to the ego mind which creates the chatter in your head and become instead, the overseer who cracks the whip!
