Women Relating with Each Other from Around the World
Most often our fears are correlated with the uncertainty of the future. Some fears may be the small everyday frights like spiders, bugs, or the fear of heights. Sometimes our fears can be our biggest limitations and can be what hold us back from moving forward.
This month’s questions are to help you identify your fears and help you push through them to reach your goals. I hope you can relate to some of the women I spoke to and how they deal with their stress.
−On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the greatest) how often do you think about the future?
−What are some of your fears in life?
−What do you do to overcome the stress that accompany your fears?
- On the scale of 1-5, Liliana thinks about her future at a 5. Her greatest fear is not losing the weight she desires. So, she decides to go on walks to helps her feel productive and release some stress.
- Harmony thinks about her future quite often (5) and her fear is failure [which I think most of us can relate too]. Harmony works with kids and she finds that she can release her stress by being around the fun and energetic environment.
- Alexis thinks about her future at a 3.6 out of a 5 scale. Being a single mom, her fear is not being able to support her family, but instead of dwelling in her fears she focuses on working harder and better at school and work. With everything that she has to deal with, Alexis makes sure to remind herself that she is more than capable of getting it all done.
- Micaela explained she thinks about her future often at a scale of 6! Her fear is the uncertainty of the future. Micaela fears that her plans will not fall into the order she wishes and gaining a degree will be harder than she thought. Instead of dwelling too much in her fears she stays active by running, painting, and finds the time to go out with friends.
I hope you will answer these questions yourself and find enjoyment by pushing through your own fears and focusing on something that will help you feel empowered.
