About common fears is general
Common fears are…well…common among us, however not many can actually recognize what they are fearing and subsequently strike a counterattack to fight their own fears.
Fear of dying is a very common fear. Fear of not being good enough, of not being happy, of not living up to someone else’s expectations is a common thread. Fear of the unknown is also a common thread. The fear of not living up to your expectations is a very common thread.
The fear of not living up to someone else’s expectations is a very common thread. Fear of Failure. If you’re afraid of failing in life, then you don’t have enough self-confidence and self-esteem to do anything in life.
The more you fear failure, the more likely you’re going to fail. So the first step you have to do is to stop looking at failure as the end-all-be-all. Instead, start seeing it as something that you can work around. If you have the right mindset, this will be much easier to do.
Fear of dying
Fear of dying and the inevitable pain and suffering that come with it. We’ve all heard horror stories about people who have passed away from terminal illnesses and are left with no more than a useless body.
Fear of rejection
Fear of being rejected by someone important in your life. If you’re afraid of rejection, then you will have a horrible feeling of fear about yourself and your ability to succeed in life. It’s important to have a healthy fear of rejection.
Fear of death
Fear of dying and the inevitable pain and suffering that come with it. If we don’t have some kind of belief system that we can build up around our ability to live a long and successful life, then we’re going to feel like we’re wasting our time worrying about dying. This is a terrible way to spend your life!
Fear of failure
If you think that you are going to fail, then you will have a greater chance of failing. When you have a strong sense of fear of failure, you’re not able to look at failure objectively and you’re not able to see why you might have done something wrong.
Fear of making a mistake
I know that if you made a mistake you wouldn’t feel as guilty as you would if you were just expecting to make a mistake. Having a deep fear of making a mistake means that you’re not willing to take any risks. You are too concerned with making a mistake rather than being successful.
Fear of rejection
If you always worry that someone who you need to do business with, or who is working with you, is going to turn you down, then you aren’t going to be very successful in your life. Your fear keeps you from taking risks. You would much rather stay where you are and keep doing what you’re doing.
Fear of losing something
There’s really nothing more frightening than the fear of losing something valuable. It’s even scarier, if you know you just lost it to someone who is in control of your life. The worst part is that you trust this person, and now they’ve gotten away with something that you should have been able to protect yourself from.
Fear of being helpless
If you always believe that you would be dependent on someone else, then you are feeling dependent on this person right now. You don’t feel capable of doing anything by yourself, and you don’t see the advantage of relying on somebody else.
Fear of uncertainty
We often base our sense of self worth on what people think of us. If we are afraid that we won’t be able to make it in this particular field, then we avoid all involvement. We try to avoid risk by being a recluse. This means that we won’t be moving ahead in any sort of positive direction, and we’ll always see other people as being able to handle things better.
Fear of the future
The future is something that you cannot predict. It’s either going to be full of promise, or full of dread. No matter how much you want to control the future, you can’t. If you are afraid of the future, then you’re going to be very limited in the kinds of things that you can do in life.
