“Fear” is an ugly 4 letter word that causes so much upset in our lives. There are different kinds of fear.
Probably the number one fear is fear of public speaking. If you are a business professional, and need to be able to stand up in front of people and talk, whether it be at a networking event or giving a talk for some colleagues at work, this fear can hold you back in your career. It can keep you from the professional recognition that you deserve.
Performance anxiety is related to fear of public speaking. If you sing or play an instrument and are afraid of performing in front of people, I can relate. I am an amateur pianist and organist and use to sweat bullets at the mere thought of playing for someone, let alone a group. No more.
Social anxiety is another form of fear. It is felt if you are uncomfortable talking with people you don’t know that well, or you are not comfortable in small groups. Basically, it is fear of being social. This fear can keep you from having the happiness and contact with others that you desire.
Phobias are another kind of fear. Examples of phobias are fear of snakes, creepy crawly things, fear of flying, fear of heights, of elevators, fear of just about anything. This kind of fear can ruin your life.
Having been a sensitive child who was tormented by a sadistic raging alcoholic sociopath of a mother who, for example, would push me down on the floor and kick me, I developed huge fears about life.
In my teen and college years I had such low self esteem I feared talking to anyone and kept my head and eyes down to the pavement. I would not ask for directions or interact with people in any way. And God help me if I had to stand up in class to answer a teacher’s question or give a book report in front of the class.
I know fear AND I know how to resolve it and heal from it and I can help you resolve your fear, too.
I got over my performance anxiety and was, for years, the organist for a small church. And I now regularly easily speak in public. See Public Speaking.
