Crazy but true
We all suffer from it sometimes or often: Anxiety. Yes, everyone has to deal with it.
Last week we received an email from Jesse van der Velde, 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. But can this be compared to the virus or can you use fear in this context? Since many people do not get vaccinated due to fear.
Because there are many people who are afraid and want a solution. Then you will have to protect yourself with the vaccine if you want to and feel safer.
‘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 of not belonging. Fear of being rejected. Fear of not pleasing your parents and so many more fears that we have to learn to deal with. As we grow up, we learn far too little about this.
Listening and Helping
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 in itself. We learn that every day, to say what you want to say 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 to achieve their goals. We want to do what is actually normal to do when there is Love for each other. With help you always get one step further.
Media doesn’t have to be hateful and irrelevant. It can be honest and also provide tools to make Life easier. How are you in Life? Do you have any fears? Let us know. Either way, let’s always let Love & Goodvibes prevail despite fears we have to overcome.
‘Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.’
