how to overcome fear3 Simple Tricks For Overcoming Fear And Anxiety In Less Than 30 Seconds

Do you struggle with fear, anxiety and worry?

Most people in today's society struggle with some form of fear and anxiety.

It could be fear of failure, fear of rejection and anxiety about things not working out.  Have you ever felt that?

If the answer is yes, then don't worry – you're normal.

Fear is a survival instinct that is built into all human beings.  It's a GOOD THING because it's kept us safe and alive up until this point of our lives.  It protects us.

However, this fear and anxiety is no longer a useful emotion when it holds us back from our goals and dreams.  That's when it becomes something that you need to address and overcome.

In this video blog, I'm going to reveal to you 3 simple tricks on how to overcome fear and anxiety once in 30 seconds or less.

You may think it's impossible to overcome fear or anxiety that quickly – however, it's true.  The most important thing in understanding how to overcome fear and anxiety is to learn how emotions work.

How To Overcome Fear And Anxiety Once And For All

In order to overcome fear and anxiety, you need to understand that fear and anxiety are emotions.  They're emotional patterns, similar to any other emotion you'd experience – anger, frustration, depression, happiness, confidence, excitement, passion, etc…

 

A common misconception is that these emotions are often experienced as the result of the outside world.  That it's their job, their boss, the economy, or something outside of their control that is making them feel the fear and anxiety.

This is 100% not true!

While outside events can trigger anxiety and fear, they are not responsible you experiencing them.

Anytime you put something outside of your control and put blame on it, you have no power to change it.  Instead, I want to invite you to take responsibility for every emotion you experience, because as you'll about to learn, YOU are the one that creates it.

In order to learn how to overcome fear and anxiety, it's critical to understand that there's 3 things that determines how you feel at any given moment of time.  Tony Robbins calls this the “Emotional Triad”.

1. Physiology

Your physiology, or how you use your body, is the first factor that determines how you feel in any given moment of time.

EVERY emotional state has a pattern of physiology associated to it.

If you're fearful and experience anxiety, what is the physiology that you use during that time?

I can almost guarantee that your breathing is shallow, there's tension in your body, your voice becomes quieter, you avoid taking up much space, have less eye contact, and have slouched shoulders.

The way you use your body is determining how you feel.

What if you radically changed the way you're using your body in that moment?

What if you went for a run?  Or exercised intensely?  How would you feel after 30 seconds of that?

By intensely using your body, you experience an entirely different set of emotions and states.

Going for a run or exercising isn't always a practical way for overcoming fear and anxiety, however, it works and proves to be an example for changing your physiology.

Alternatively, what if you just starting breathing more fully?  What would that do for your fear and anxiety?

Put your shoulders back.  Put a big smile on your fear.  Elevate yourself, speak loudly, and start taking up more space.  Now how do you feel?  Likely completely different.

To understand how to overcome fear and anxiety, it starts with how you're using your physiology.  Become aware and master your body in any given moment and you'll master your fear.

2. Focus

What you focus on in any given moment will determine how you feel.

If you're focused on things not working out and the worst case scenario, then it's a given to how you're going to feel.  Your focus produces your emotions.

“Whatever you focus on you feel”.

To learn how to overcome fear and anxiety, you must master your focus and thoughts.  You must direct your focus on what it is you want, not what you fear.

Someone that is confident in any given situation is focusing on entirely different things than the person that is fearful.

To learn how to overcome fear, focus on only positive thoughts.  Focus on and see things working out.  Focus on the good in the situation.  Make a picture of it and visualize it.

Sure enough, if you do this, you'll feel entirely different about the situation.

3. Language

Your language patterns or beliefs also influence how you feel.  To be able to conquer your fears and anxiety, you must be able to change your beliefs and the words that you speak to yourself.

What are the most common beliefs or phrases you use when you experience anxiety and fear?

“This won't work.”

“What if I fail?”

“I'm not good enough.”

“Maybe another time…”

“What if I get rejected?”

These common phrases or beliefs also influence how you feel in any given moment.

To learn how to overcome fear and anxiety, you must be able to take control over the words you speak.

What are more positive words or phrases you can say instead?

“I can do this!”

“Things always work out for me.”

“I am unstoppable!”

“I make things happen.”

“I am confident.”

If you say these phrases and words, you would feel entirely differently.

The key is to speak them with a strong physiology and to focus on them simultaneously.

If you can do this and take control over these 3 areas of influence, you will be able to overcome any fear or anxiety that is holding you back.

To truly understand how to overcome fear and anxiety, you need to become a master of your state.

You need to condition yourself daily to be who you want to be.  That's how you make it lasting.

I'm a big fan of morning rituals or a daily rituals to condition yourself everyday to experiencing what it is that you want.

If you consistently take control over your emotions and condition the states of confidence, that will now become your new base-line, default state of being.

Give it a try!

  • Nice post. It looks like you’re yawning in the first pic 😀 .

  • I’ve missed these videos Stefan, thanks. 🙂 I’ve been pushing myself a lot this year and I’ve done many things I wouldn’t have done a year ago. I also now know that it’s some of my fears that’s holding my business back to be more successful than what it is today.

    I wanted to start a morning ritual for some time now, but I made some excuses for myself not commit to it. That was until I heard Phil Lockwood talk about how he gets up at 4am. I started to think for myself that I’m more productive in the morning than in the evening, so imagine if I get up 2 hours before the kids wake up… After watching this video it got me thinking about creating a recording with vision statements, affirmations, the right focus, positive mindset, etc. Something that last for 20 minute that I can put on when I go running in the morning.

    This video got me inspired again. It’s been a lot of negative influences this summer and it’s been hard to bounce back, but this helped. Thanks again Stefan, keep ’em coming. 🙂

    First thank you Stefan.
    This was incredibly useful for me. It made me realise the purpose of the morning/daily ritual.

    I do stutter when nervous, which caused me not to want to speak in public. I’ve joined toastmasters and will be giving my maiden speech in two weeks. Preparation hasn’t been good so far, work has been demanding and I’ve started learning about computer algorithms (which I find tough), but I’ll just have to be disciplined and envision a bright future and things working out for me.

    I feel very empowered after having watched this video.

    Thanks again.

    • That’s great to hear! Toastmasters is great, highly recommend them!
