You know, sometimes ago I read a book titled “Think and Grow Rich.” It’s a book written by Napoleon Hill, great author. And I don’t know how true this statement is but I still believe it to be true;
I don’t know if you’ve ever heard that - our minds were not designed to make us successful, they were designed to keep us safe.
Before you batch the mouse over my head and consider that word to be ridiculous, ask yourself why people always like to do what’s comfortable and familiar. People find it so difficult to get outside their comfort zones. I believe they do that simply because of the way our minds were designed.
We find it difficult to get outside our comfortable zone due to these 6 ghosts of fear;
These are just few out of many things that keep us from stepping outside our comfort zones.
Folks, there are lots of negative things I had to change and I’m still changing in my life, as humans our minds were designed to be programmed. I’m a very shy person and what do you think leads to shyness? Well, it’s the fear of criticism.
I usually worry about what people think of me, what they see me to be and I got all this from past events when I was much younger but if you are here and you are kind of like in the same position I’m in, you can change it, I will overcome it very soon and I hope you too overcome being shy – I feel it’s a bad thing that must be corrected fast.
Although, some people fear almost all these 6 ghosts of fear, to be sincere, I fear almost all of them but thanks to Napoleon Hill’s book. 🙂
So here are the cures to these 6 ghosts of fear, I got them from Napoleon Hill’s book – “Think and Grow Rich.”
