Fear is real
We all suffer from it sometimes or often: Anxiety. Everyone has to deal with it.
Jesse van der Velde is a health coach who is committed to a healthy lifestyle in the field of eating and training.
He talked in his blog about the fact that fear is worse than the virus. He said that many will be angry with him because of this statement, but that he says it anyway because he believes that all strength is within ourselves and we can overcome fear.
Fear is a big problem and strength is certainly within you. So we agree with that.
Many people who are afraid want a solution. Buddism says that if you have fear you live too much in the future instead of the present.
‘Fear is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of progress. In overcoming our fears we move forward, stronger and wiser within ourselves.’
Facing Fears Quotes
Freedom is no fear
We certainly think that coaching is good for overcoming fear. But in the end we will have to overcome it ourselves by changing our own mindset. It is good to be aware of your fears and to discuss them with the right people in your life so that you can get help.
We also suffer from fears. Especially when it comes to exams and public speaking. Fortunately, we are well coached and it is becoming less and less. Anxiety is a daily challenge.
U-ICON wants to bring this subject up for discussion more often because this is a major problem for many young people. Fear prevents many from functioning properly at home, with friends, at school or at work.
Freedom is not having fear. Fear is what we learn a long our way. Fear of not belonging. Fear of being rejected. Fear of not pleasing friends, family or parents and so many more fears that we have to learn to deal with.
As we grow up, we learn too little about this. Nobody is learning you anything about fear. We undergo fear in silence.
Listen & Help
We just need to listen to each other without judging.
Without an opinion. Without being afraid to discuss and share our feelings. That will already help reduce anxiety.
If you can honestly say what you want, that is liberating itself.
We learn every day, to say what we want without fear. Of course it’s not easy, because we can almost never do that without getting a fucked up opinion or misunderstanding in return.
As a media company, U-ICON wants to listen to young people and help them to make their voices heard more and help to achieve their goals.
We want to do what is actually normal when there is love for each other. With help you always get further in life.
We need to listen to each other and help each other.
Media doesn’t have to be hateful and irrelevant. It can be straight to the point, honest and also provide tools to make life easier.
How are you doing? Do you have fears? Either way, always let love & positive thinking prevail despite of fears we have to overcome.
We struggle with selfawareness. Without knowledge we are no where.
We have to learn to teach yourself by reading books or search knowledge on the internet. Put your pride or shame aside and ask for help if you need it.
‘Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.’
