What are you ‘actually’ afraid of?

This is October 20th of my book:  ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At ATime‘.

Take the opportunity today to write a list of things that you are afraid of.

For some this will be a short list and others it will be longer than it should. I for one am afraid of dying before I achieve a lot more than I have right now for instance. But give it some real thought, take a bit of time over it and write down everything that comes to mind.

It may surprise you just how long or short it actually is.

It’s funny how identifying our fears can actually diminish them. Once your list is complete, read it a few times. Notice how you feel about each item. You may feel some are silly, others irrelevant.

This execise in itself may spur you on to tackle some of those fears, some of which you may only think you have. We define ourselves in many ways and one way is through our fears – I’m afraid of heights, or spiders, or flying, or open spaces etc. Thing is, you may have been afraid once but that doesn’t necessarily mean you still are.

It’s a good idea to explore even deeper with some of them and ask “Why am I afraid of [xyz]?”

As always… enjoy

  1. Losing a member of my immediate little family…husband, sons, daughter-in-law and grandchildren…My heart would take a long time to repair!

    Thanks Stu. I like this one. I’m too tired to do the exercise now as I’m afraid I won’t wake up early enough in the morning! 😉 But I will do it. x
