Overcome Fear to Live Your Best Life - [The Ikonns, EP.13]
In this episode Alex and Mimi explore how to overcome and best use, the innate human emotion of fear.
This is one subject where Alex and Mimi really do differ, both realising their own fears, differently in their own lives. So let’s hear what’s so scary?
Mimi has a very creative imagination that sometimes takes her fears to quite irrational places, like her fear of flying and swimming in deep water, these are things she fears all the time.
“I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” - Mark Twain
Meanwhile, Alex’s finds his fear in spontaneous places having never given time to think over what actually scares him… Until it creeps upon him - like finding himself in front of an unfamiliar audience that he wasn’t expecting to be speaking to.
Alex explores the evolutionary aspects to our fear and why, as humans we are born to be afraid. Mimi concludes her stories with; whenever she overcomes fear, something good always comes from it. They both challenge the uncomfort we must go through, when talking about and facing our fears, stating the importance to do so, in order to truly grow.
Here’s how you can navigate your fear:
Start with acknowledging your fear - respect that it’s there and we all suffer from it.
Talk about it - open up transparent dialogue with trusted friends and loved ones
Write it down - often seeing it on paper reveals just how small the fear can actually be
Integrate logic - moving from the creative right brain, to a more rational left brain might ease your fear
Rewarding yourself on the other side of overcoming fear, can soon have you loving life’s challenges
