What Fear Can Teach Us

What Fear Can Teach Us | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Imagine you're a shipwrecked sailor adrift in the enormous Pacific. You can choose one of three directions and save yourself and your shipmates -- but each choice comes with a fearful consequence too. How do you choose?

 

In her TED talk titled What fear can teach us Karen Thompson Walker explains how fear is like an unintentional story we tell ourselves. By learning how to read our fears and imagine possible futures, we can make smarter decisions.

7 Things Fear has Stolen from You

7 Things Fear has Stolen from You | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Everything you want is on the other side of fear.  Don’t ever hesitate to give yourself a chance to be everything you are capable of being.

Although fear can feel overwhelming, and defeats more people than any other force in the world, it’s not as powerful as it seems.  Fear is only as deep as your mind allows.  You are still in control.  The key is to acknowledge your fear and directly address it.  You must step right up and confront it face to face.  This tactic robs fear of its power, instead of fear robbing YOU of…

The Confidence/Competence Loop

The Confidence/Competence Loop | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
Using the confidence/competence loop can drive performance and inform, inspire and ignite those you lead. Jump-start your confidence with these application techniques.

 

There are several basic areas of study that, as we study them, we can become more effective coaches and leaders.  This long list includes both human behavior and learning.  The psychological concept I want to talk about today comes from the intersection of these two fields of study.

 

Don’t worry; I’m not going to go all academic on you (though you could, with a simple web search, find lots of scholarly work on what we are going to talk about).

 

Here is the concept – the confidence/competence loop.

 

We all recognize that our success accelerates when we are confident.  The reason is simple.  Without confidence we revert to fear, and when we are fearful we don’t take any action.  We get tentative, we delay and we procrastinate.  When you are able to let go of fear, you take action more quickly and easily.

I like this concept.  It has worked for me in the past in situations where I woudl like to be more confident.  To me it's all about being prepared and knowing my subject.  If I am competent at what I'm doing, confidence comes naturally!

» Freeing Up Emotions and the “Permission to Feel” Exercise, 2 of 2 - Neuroscience and Relationships

» Freeing Up Emotions and the “Permission to Feel” Exercise, 2 of 2 - Neuroscience and Relationships | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

Choosing not to experience pain, anger, or other intense feelings causes pain to get buried inside, held in the memory of cells, deep into our physical body. There, they could linger unresolved and blocked for days, weeks or years, affecting the way we experience the world. When you allow yourself to experience all of your emotions, including the painful ones, you use the power you have in present moments to come to terms with your feelings, by experiencing your feelings, understanding them, and allowing them to inform actions you take, so that, you can move on. (...)


Why shrink from the pain of fear, when you are designed by nature to grow by transforming fears into assets? Here’s a five step approach to convert any fear to powerful energy using a five-step process.

I would add  to this article finding out whether  what we desire deeply  aligns itself with purpose .This will only raise other question I'm afraid that suggests that some desires are planted by our environment and socialisation from the time we are born into this world and the rest ....well for those of us who believe ,by design.

During the interview, I asked Jim, “Why is it so hard for employees to feel safe?”

He quickly answered, “Change.”

 

The following fears make up what Jim calls “the Fear Monster".
