Understanding fear

To overcome fear, you need to understand what it entails. Susan Jeffers helps us to comprehend our fear by breaking it down into three levels. And three facts. 

Levels of fears

  • Level 1 fears

Level 1 fears are stories that you convince yourself what will happen or things you must do, for example, making a career switch. Many times, the fear of one thing may lead to the fear of multiple areas, such as fear of public speaking, etc.

  • Level 2 fears

These fears do not involve external factors rather than your inner state of mind. These include generalized ones that cut across various areas of your life. Examples include fear of failure or rejection- fears that are a reflection of your abilities.

  • Level 3 fears

Level three fear is the fear that you will not be able to handle something. It is fear brought out by a lack of confidence. 

The 5 Truths about fear

When you accept your level of fear and work on it, you’ll naturally overcome it. Susan Jeffers breaks down these five truths about fear:

1. As long as there is growth and you are trying out new things, there will be fear. For this reason, it does not make sense to avoid your fears

2. Avoid excuses. The only way to eliminate fear is to do what it is that you fear to do. That helps you to learn how to do things better until you eventually get the hang of it.

4. When you learn how to deal with fear, you feel proud, fulfilled, and satisfied.

5. Everyone is dealing with their fears. You are not alone.
