What are you afraid of ??

Is it failure or is it success. Are you afraid of taking risks ? or speaking truth ? or is it something else ?

Fear has no face, no description, no limit but it can break even the strongest man on earth.

I am just a common man, living a normal life like all others. I like white bread, potatoes, cheese, egg, Superman,rock music and WordPress. I have some expectations, some limitations and Yes, I have some fears.

I have been tackling fear with ignorance. It works fine for sometime, but then, it grows in size. Bigger, bigger and bigger. It feels like an alien invasion in your brain and you’re the only soldier fighting the huge army with a bow and arrow.

I was fighting like a brave soldier. Dodging bullets, taking cover and firing arrows at the same time.

But fear was approaching with great speed. Every method seemed to fail.

I was desperate to get my mind back. I wanted this war to end. So, I decided to fight fear with faith. 

I closed my eyes. At that moment, it felt like, I was holding the center stage of the Universe and every eye is fixed upon me. I didn’t lose my calm and asked myself a very simple question.

“How realistic are your fears ? Do they really exist or is it a byproduct of over thinking ?”

One by one, all my fears fell apart. I realized, none of them were actual fears. They were just virtual situations in my mind. If you too, sit and think for a while, you can overcome all your fears.

Now, when I had faith in my side, it was time for the Final Showdown. Me and fear face to face. For the first time fear seemed weak, it didn’t dare to stare into my eyes.I was becoming stronger, with every second passing. Finally fear had to quit. I was now, much more powerful and filled with faith.

For me, life was nothing but a vacation on tropical island and was not willing to take up challenges.

Expecting life to be a fairy tale is unrealistic.Life is real. Life is tough. Sometimes it’s really tough. It tests you and tosses you when you least expect.

But life is also adventurous, exciting, surprising and filled with hope. By improving our attitude, we can get over every problem.

After this long warfare and huge victory, I will now treat myself with a GIANT scoop of Nutella. I suggest you do the same. You deserve it.
