Getting Rid of Your Fear of Risk

Fear gets in the way of the world receiving what we have to offer.  If we can find a way to move past fear, we are actually giving a gift, not only to ourselves, but to others around us.  Risk-taking and its attendant anxiety are sensations we can master!  We all tend to like to operate in our “comfort zone”, yet there can be exhilaration and pride in going beyond our familiar limits, and gaining that pleasure is part of adult maturity.  As a personal growth coach, it’s my job to help people manage and work through fear so that they can live and perform.

Most often fear of risk is related to the unknown, to contemplating change.  We turn over many possibilities in our minds as we imagine ourselves in future action.  For example, most people dread public speaking, and giving a big presentation at work can cause a lot of upset. personal growth coach

Humans seem to have a built-in tendency to anticipate bad things happening, presumably so we can survive by perceiving potential danger.  The mortality rate among people giving speeches is actually remarkably low though, so this fear does not have a rational basis!  However, the fear of being judged and rejected by others is more immediate.  Planning practical action to take is likely to involve some of the following shifts in thinking:

Regard the new action or decision as an experiment.

Don’t be distracted by the judgments of others.  In the words of Thomas Edison, inventor extraordinaire: “Hell, there are no ruleFree Coaching Consultations here.  We’re trying to accomplish something!”

Do not always listen to what you might only imagine is your inner voice.  It has a lot of bad habits.

Remind yourself that learning about risk-taking and courage can be a lonely experience. After all, if everyone exercised courage it would not be such a widely-admired quality.  A positive support person like a coach can help you work with your reactions effectively, and equip yourself to approach the risk in a situation with intelligence and self-awareness.
