Face Your Fear - Run Towards It

by Dalia Ashraf Mounir Ibrahim

You can learn to face your fear; to run towards it, accept it and move through it to accomplish all that you dream.


"You can conquer almost any fear if
you will only make up your mind to do so.
For remember, fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind."

~Dale Carnegie~

Do you fear failure?

Does it stop you from reaching?

Do you often face moments when you want something so badly but you fear asking for it or making the decision to attain it?

No matter what your condition, you can get past it.

Fear is a major factor that holds
people back from going for many things."
~Wendy Hearn~

When fear is not dealt with, it will cause you to give in or give up - to stop you cold. Understand, you get to choose everything in life.

Only you can decide whether to let fear defeat you or face your fear, feel it and take it along for the ride and enjoy all that you can accomplish.

Most let fear stop them from taking the necessary steps to achieve their dreams. Fear is natural! When you approach or attempt anything new in life it's okay to feel scared; but you can face it and move through it.

"Fear of failure must never
be a reason not to try something."
~Frederick Smith~

Throughout history, there are countless examples of individuals who pushed through their fear and went on to fulfill their dreams.

In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record audition for the executives of the Decca recording Company. The executives were not impressed. While turning down this group of musicians, one executive said, "We don't like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out."

This musical group was nervous, fearful and not too confident, but they didn’t stop. They went on even though feeling rejected and persevered until reaching the mountain top. That group was called The Beatles.

In 1944, director of the Blue Book Modeling Agency told Norma Jean Baker, "You'd better learn secretarial work or else get married."

It was believed this girl wasn’t pretty at all; but she didn’t let her beauty problem stop her, she didn’t FEAR it. She went on and became Marilyn Monroe.

In 1954 Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, fired a singer after one performance. He told him, "You ain't goin' nowhere....son. You ought to go back to drivin' a truck."

This singer destroyed every barrier just to reach where he wanted; he smashed fear by his invincible will and unbreakable strength. He went on to become the most popular singer in America named Elvis Presley.

I learned to acknowledge my fears, to avoid anything that could make my path way seem lost. I used to think, what do I fear?

Do I fear not living long, or do I fear not reaching my dreams? Is it fear that stops me every time I achieve, or is it me that creates that fear?

Will I ever get over those fears and live a life full of achievement?

The fears I face and defeat will be gone but my hopes and dreams will last forever.

If you can face your fear and be an achiever, then why not? Exert some effort and get it done!

You're life is precious! Live it to the fullest by freeing your self from anything that could stop you.

You deserve the best. You were created the best and you shall end the best.

Take chances. I challenge you to make your life a master piece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live their dreams - those who face their fears.

Nothing is worth stopping you from reaching your destination. The choice is yours, you can succumb to fear - or - dare to face your fear and take every chance.

In the end, you'll be grateful for not allowing anything to stop you!
