Lahat tayo ay may "fears" kung tawagin sa wikang ingles at "takot" naman sa wikang filipino. Ayon kay pareng, Fear is an emotional response to a perceived threat. It is a basic survival mechanism occurring in response to a specific stimulus, such as pain or the threat of danger.

I admit, may mga fears ako lalo sa mga bagay na tungkol sa kinabukasan dahil minsan na kasing naudlot ang mga plano na ginawa ko. Kung ikaw ay taga-subaybay ng pahinang ito, malamang sa malamang nabasa mo ang kwento ng aking buhay; paki-click na lang kung interesado ka - > Story 1, Story 2 at Story 3. At 'yon ay ang isa sa mga kinatatakutan kung mangyari ulit.

Ganun nga talaga ang buhay, may mga gusto kang gawin at tuparin pero hindi binibigay o maraming mangyayari unexpectedly, sabi nga nila, "it's not your time pa!"

Anyway, I have something to share to all of you guys! Hope you will get some tips on how to fight your fears.

Here are some tried and tested tips on how to fight your fears:
Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway - The best method to fight any fear is to take positive action against whatever it is that you are afraid of. Is fear of failure stopping you from learning that new skill? Go ahead and learn it! This is what courage is all about: to act despite the fear. (I highly recommend Susan Jeffer’s book)
Educate Yourself - Learn more and more about the object that you are afraid of. You want to chuck your job and plunge into your own business, but are afraid of the risks involved? Then the best way to reduce the fears is to consciously learn about the business in as much depth as you can. Preparation increases confidence and calms those butterflies in the stomach. Just be aware of “Analysis-paralysis” (I will cover this topic in more depth in future posts from my own experience.).
Affirmations - Use self-affirmations that give a positive spin to whatever it is that you fear. Write these self-affirmations on a stick-it note where it is easily visible. Say you are afraid of criticism from others, then one possible self-affirmation could be - “I am outstanding. I must be outstanding for all the people I will help.”
Visualization - Positive visualization is projecting an image of yourself overcoming your fears, and is a powerful technique to fight your fears. If you are afraid of your boss, visualize that your boss is smiling at you, appreciating you, and complimenting you of a job well done. Keep this image in your mind firmly.
“What’s the Worst Case Scenario?” – Often when this question is asked, you realize how silly the fear is. Example, if you are afraid to ask someone out on a date, what’s the worst that could happen? The other person saying “No”? It’s not that bad, right? One of my most enlightening realizations is recognizing that “I have nothing to lose”.



  1. fear consumed me already.. but i became strong during that time.. Fear is just a feeling of facing the battle, and telling you can't do it, because you don't have this and that. but if you believe in yourself, and have the confidence to do it, then fear will gone away.

    It is just a matter of facing you fears in life, after that, all things will just come. It is a process sometimes, but staying with this stuff is not a good idea. therefore, fear is a choice!

  2. fear can be positive the fear of the Lord...on the other hand it cud be negative too...but there is one emotion that can overcome any emotions - "love". Love will conquer fear....naks! asan ba si Dhee hahahah ayus parekoy salamat sa info!

  9. at pag may fear tayo let's avoid asking "Why." kc asking that question immobilizes us. instead, let's ask the question "How." Because asking how will make us move forward. (hiniram ko lang kay Bo Sanchez). :)
