5 Ways to Turn Fear Into Fortitude

  • Get fresh air

There’s nothing better than walking through a park or countryside to collect your thoughts.  As you venture into a peaceful environment, a peaceful environment seems to venture its way into you.  It doesn’t matter how you get out there – take a walk around a garden or conservatory if you don’t have immediate wilderness. Smell the flowers, listen to the wildlife, be one with what was put here in the beginning.  Your stress is going to melt away. All you have to do is get your mind wrapped around the idea of letting everything go, including any fears you have, and just enjoying the quiet moments that the outdoors has to offer.

  • Exercise often

You know that feeling you get when you WANT to exercise, but just can’t seem to slide your butt off of the couch?  It’s more than the lack of motivation, it is fear looking you straight in the minds’ eye and telling you that you can’t do it.  I’ve got news for you; you can do it right now.  What’s the benefit?  You’ll do it even better tomorrow.  Don’t think twice; don’t worry about where you are right now, because that’s not going to change. What’s important is that you JUST DO IT.

  • Nourish yourself

Nourishing yourself is the perfect complement to exercise.  Do you want to treat your body properly with physical activity? You’ve got to feed your body the optimal octane that it’s going to need.  Let’s start thinking about that, shall we?

Think about the human body, broken down into the smallest pieces. It all comes down to single cells doesn’t it?  How you treat these cells is what’s vitally important.  Eat life, receive life.  Eat death, I’ll let you figure the rest of that out…

  •     Craft Change

“What can I do about the people around me that are negative?”

This is the most often question I’ve ever been asked about retaining a positive mindset.

Let’s follow the rules here, step by step. If your thoughts can supposedly alter your reality, then you can change that reality through your thoughts, right?  Someone once said:

“Watch your thoughts, for they become words.

Watch your words, for they become actions.

Watch your actions, for they become habits.

Watch your habits, for they become character.

Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

See how that quote only STARTED with your thoughts? That’s right; you can’t cross the finish line if you don’t start running when the gun sounds. It’s completely up to you (since we’re in this physical world and all), to follow up with words, actions and so forth to create your destiny. Do you want to change the attitude of the person or people around you?

Start thinking about how they can be happy.  Next, talk to them about what makes them happy.  This could be as simple as simply asking them what makes them happy. You might be surprised if they don’t start talking about what actually does make them happy.  Congratulations my friend, you’ve planted the seed of thought.  It all starts with the thought about being happy to ultimately create a happy life.  That’s the Power of Positivity!

  •  Affirm, Affirm, Affirm!

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” – Zig Ziglar

Affirmations:  We’ve all heard of them.  Repeat this or that to yourself and believe in it. It will magically just find itself to you.  Don’t ask me HOW it works, I’m not a quantum physicist; I just know it works. How?  Because every time I ask someone how they’ve earned their massive success, they say “I focused on my dreams and didn’t let anything get in the way.”  That’s even how it started for me!

Here’s the trick:  Wherever you feel you are lacking or whatever “moans and gripes” you have are what is holding your attractive vibration in place. Start repeating daily the exact opposite of those moans and gripes (i.e., “I’m broke all the time.” vs. “My income is constantly increasing.”).  You will notice in time, with repetition and belief in yourself that changes will start taking place.  At first, it may be minor changes, but if you’re steadfast you’ll see more, too!
