fear and anxiety

Dealing with fear and anxiety

The world, in its complex form, gives both bad and good stakes. Therefore, despite individuals’ or cooperate’ good intentions, everyone will have his share of challenges. Whether it’s a life-threatening situation, lack of wants, a jerk-off boss, or simply safety issues, we’re all going to experience fear and anxiety at some point in our lives.

You must understand that fear can be present in both unpleasant and pleasant situations. But the main factors and determinants of fear and anxiety are psychological. When you are experiencing a strong and uncontrollable conflict in your emotion on a thing that you perceived, it could result in failure, death, or any unpleasant situation. The imagined danger, as a result, is what leads to fear and anxiety.

So how do you balance this hazardous condition in your life? Here are some ideas and tips to help solve the problem.

How to Deal with Fear and Anxiety

There are many ways to address fear and anxiety, but I will show you five tricks to overcome your fear and deal with your anxiety.

  • Develop Self-talk: Start a conversation within yourself- intrapersonal communication. Ask yourself sincere questions, give yourself profound answers. Questions like; what will happen if I do this? How can I escape this mess? Who has experience situations like this? Did they survive it? Does this issue worth to worry about? Be analytical in your talk. After the whole thing, make sure you resolve and make an appealing conclusion.
  • Seek Help: Sometimes, some situations might be bigger than you. It is not everything you keep to yourself. When you are experiencing fear and anxiety, seek outside help, reach out for assistance. It might be from professional personnel (counselor), friends, family, or colleagues. Think of anybody that can help in such a situation. Speak out and speak up.
  • Fight Conflicts Directly: Take a deep breath, take time for yourself, keep your breath calm and relaxed. See to yourself and where your strength lies. Leverage on your previous success, remind yourself of how you overcame some terrible moments of your life. After doing this, launch into action. Fight what is fighting you. Then watch how the fear and anxiety will disappear.
  • Follow your Intuition: Intuition is very powerful in the face of danger, fear, or anxiety. Learn how to listen to yourself. I call this “self obedience.” When you feel like going, don’t hesitate, go! It’s usually an escape route. When your intuition tells you to stop, obey it.
  • Take risks: You would have heard this in many situations; take a risk! Life is a risk; everything we do in life is a risk. Traveling is a risk; eating is a risk; sleeping is a risk… Nonetheless, make sure you take a reasonable, calculatable, and justifiable risk. Don’t let the situation take advantage of you. A risk-taker is a record-breaker. Take the risk, and you won’t die by doing so.

Please note: Ensure you do your due diligence and proper analysis before taking risks.

Face your fear and remember that if the force within is not greater and stronger than the one without, you will be frustrated and be defeated. Nothing can defeat you, not even fear and anxiety but YOU! Your internal make-ups or resolutions are vital in addressing the negative thoughts or incidents.

fundamentals of goal-setting

Fundamentals of goal setting

Do you know 80% of all resolutions fail at some point? This statistic is so depressing, a lot of people are giving up on trying too. How do you take precedence over giving up and becoming truly successful this year? I believe you need to focus on your habits, learn how to set goals, and focus on making processes. These aren’t just your resolutions; they are your lifestyle choices.

If you want to do something extraordinary, you must think about it in terms of patterns that match history, play into current psychology, and demonstrate how you can work smarter, not harder.

So, what’s the secret sauce? In creative activities, the goal is the idea that motivates you to get your work done and feed your work back into the culture.

A goal-setter has the responsibility of taking action to become a goal-getter.

Achieving your dream can feel quite satisfying, whether it’s a personal or corporate plan. Most people who know what their goals are often found pleasure in being able to check that goal off their list. For instance, someone who has a determination of losing weight must achieve that through smart planning, regimented exercise, and a host of other behaviors that, when done in concert, help to address the issue and achieve their dream. When those steps become a habit, it hastens the accomplishment of the plan.

You may be wondering, why do you have a plan of what to achieve but you don’t achieve them? The problem is that you only have what to achieve but neglect how, when, and where to achieve it – a goal-setting blueprint must contain these four elements. Because they are all crucial for actualizing your dreams or what you meant to realize. Be intentional and definite!

In the case of a complex goal, breaking it down into its individual unit is more useful for reaching noticeable progress. For instance, if it’s an annual goal; break it into daily, weekly, and monthly plans, or if your target is to make millions of dollars; break it into hundreds and thousands. In this order, you will achieve your goal in the end by adhering to your plan and taking action. Break the complex goal into manageable resolutions – Rome was not built in a day.

Jack Ma, a Chinese business magnate once said, “No matter how tough the chase is, you should always have the dream you saw on the first day. It’ll keep you motivated and rescue you from any weak thoughts

What will keep you having the dream you saw on the first day is a well-structured, defined, and written-down plan. It helps to visualize the goal and chase it daily. Be aware that procrastination will always want to have its way, but intentionality will help you overcome it. Finally, set a target that will make you jump from the bed in the morning, stay focused, work hard, and succeed.

success is intentional

Success is intentional

Nothing happens by chance. Luck is when your preparation meets opportunity. Sleeping on your bed thinking that you will be lucky someday is just wishful thinking. Therefore, success is an intentional journey. 

You might have heard of a high achieving person who either succeeds in business, academics, politics, or any other field, and you think he is just a lucky person amidst the population. No, it’s not always true. Emphatically, it is hardly true. Ask that person, let him unveil some background story to you, and you will be amazed that success is planned work.

First of all, let me tell you this popular myth about success, a long-aged general misconception. People believe success is about having money, cars, or houses. It is a big lie that has been transplanted from generation to generation. Those could come by chance. You might gamble and win millions of dollars. More so, you might win a lottery and have a car or house.

True success resides in inner satisfaction. When you genuinely succeed, you will be happy and be overwhelmed with inexpressible joy.

Success is not the same as completion; it is possible to complete a task as unsuccessful. Imagine an athlete who participates in a sport and came last, though he finished the track yet is not unsuccessful because the goal is to be the first runner up.

The accomplishment of a goal or good outcome of an undertaking is typically called success. Before you can achieve a goal to become successful, you must be intentional. Hence, your intentionality will produce the following;

Goal setting:

You have the set of goals you want to achieve. Doing this means you know what you are doing and not just a mediocre man with neither bearing nor direction.


Taking action is a roadmap to goal-getting, and it is a thick line between goal setting and goal setting. An action taker is a goal-getter. Know this, and know peace!


your intentionality will take you from an action taker stage after setting your goal to a goal-getter. With this, success is sure!


On your success pursuit, there will be distractions and side many attractions. Life will place many opportunities that look brand and bright before you, which could catch your attention and make you put the options into consideration. “maybe, this is a better choice,” you will think. But it would help if you remained focused and undistracted. To be successful, you must maintain your stance and stand.


The end story of a successful man sounds exciting and appealing, but the process is not as sweet, and the summative tale sounds. You must be consistent and persistent to be successful.

You need to understand that life is not a bed of roses; there are thorns and thistles. Therefore you must be intentional about what to do, where to go, and what to achieve. If intentionality is missing, you automatically have a loophole in your success story.

fear is a killer of dreams and destiny

Fear is a killer of dreams and destiny

There is something that I have always dealt with my whole life for some reason—the fear of other people, rejection, self-expression (especially to a large audience). I am not ashamed to admit that I am also afraid of myself. That funny, right?

Well, that was me until I came across the reality that nothing hinders a man from achieving, like being afraid of his achievement. It is a weapon and instrument of termination of dreams and destiny. You die every day by being fearful of what is to come. A man who is afraid can never actualize his dream.

On October 20, 2012, Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO and founder of Meta company (Formerly known as Facebook Inc.) was addressing the young Engineers and Entrepreneurs in Standford at Y Combinators Startup School, he said;

“I have the fear of getting locked into doing things that are not the most impactful things you can do.”

The statement above clearly reveals his fear of success. He was afraid if he had not left the most crucial thing and started doing insignificant stuff. He started Facebook in 2004 as a hobby, not a company. The purpose was to connect university students, catch fun, and share values. But with that, he said he was afraid if what he was doing was sense-making and impactful.

Today, he is worth about $127 billion. If he had allowed the fear to grip him, he would have abandoned his dream and considered doing other things.

Fear will always show you danger, death, damages, and disadvantages. It underestimates what you can achieve. Moreover, you will be afraid because all you would see is the reason not to start, the possible havoc that can happen if you start, and how unfortunate you can be at the end of the day.

Fear weakens your Action.

Before your dream can come to pass or have your destiny fulfilled, you must act by taking steps every day, even in the dark, when you are not sure of how the next phase will look. And, of course, challenges are certain on every path of success. Fear will impede you from acting by using the syndrome “what if” as a mental instrument to fight and injure your desire for fulfillment. Your head thought will never align with the rightful process of achieving your dream or fulfilling your destiny.

The “what if syndrome.”

Be mindful not to be a victim. This thought is so popular and tends to pop up in the mind of everybody. And sometimes it might come as from external factors such as friends, family, society even the environment. What if I fail, what if no one supports me, what if I die, what if …

Fear creates impossibilities. You see impossibilities instead of possibilities irrespective of how rich and concrete your dreams are. But let me tell you this, what you are afraid of is also scared of you. Face your fear, break the shell, come off the deadly cubicle and achieve your dream

passion to excel beyond boundaries

Passion to excel beyond boundaries

Passion is all it takes to turn efforts into possibilities. Where passion dwells, there is never a lack of courage and determination to go beyond limits. It may take days, months, or even years, but the hunger to excel remains fresh.

As we enter a brand-new year, there is always the desire to correct the mistakes of the previous year. The bigger our goals and dreams in life, the more the desire and passion to accomplish everything we hold dear to our hearts.

The start of a new year is the perfect time to align our goals to our passion and desire. There is always that bucket list we all create and look forward to ticking as the months roll by. The longer the list, the stronger should be our desire and effort.

Accomplishing our goals and desires doesn’t usually come on a platter of gold. It requires the right mindset and necessary tools. The passion that would push you beyond all obstacles would no doubt come in handy.

Last year, I had some beautiful dreams and goals. Unfortunately, the passion wasn’t strong enough. Two months into 2021, the hunger to accomplish these dreams and goals soon faded off and it wasn’t something I’m proud to remember.

One thing is clear. To every goal and dream, there is always a hurdle to be crossed. There is always a limit that one must go beyond. When we understand these things, it keeps us in check and prepares us for the beautiful journey ahead.

Passion is what keeps the heart strong when discouragement sets in. When you’ve tried all, you can, but it seems your best shot isn’t good enough, the passion takes over and takes you right through to the finish line.

This year, my goals are clear. My intention is to accomplish things I’m passionate about. It won’t be easy, but I will always put in my best efforts.

Happy New Year!!!
