We all are familiar with the word ‘fear’ but what change is caused to this word when we add ‘fondest’ to it, is the key to success!
You think it is a joke? Well, it is your misunderstanding! And this article will prove you so. “Fondest Fears” is an oxymoron i.e. contrasting words which when joined together gives a new meaning to the phrase. Basically, we think that ‘fond’ means the things we like or the things in which we are interested in. And yes, we are right till here. But when the word ‘fear’ is added to it, we think it isn’t possible because we can never like our fear. But, that is where we are wrong. We can even Love our fear .It depends on us how we decide to think about our fears. It is us who choose to like or hate. So, the truth is, we can love our fears!
Someone ,somewhere rightly said ,There is no fear in Love but perfect LOVE CASTS OUT FEAR!”
Love is the most powerful and when it is used positively it comes out to be realistic and successful. Fear on the other hand will always be around to tell us what we can’t do- it’s up to us to face our fears and tell ourselves that ‘we can’.
So, look at your fears in the eye and smile!
And my dear friend you have won half the battle already!
Because we learn quickly that it is a phantom-a fog-like most of our fears. When we step into that fog, we soon realize that it is a figment of our imagination and our efforts to cut through it can easily succeed!
We need to change our perspective of how we see our fears. Are we afraid to face them or we have accepted them? Most important phenomena is “ACCEPTANCE“. Once we have accepted our fears as they are ,it is much easier to deal with them.
“If you are pained by external things ,it is not that they disturb you, but your own judgement of them does. And it is in your power to wipe out that judgement now” ~BY MARCUS AURELIUS
Fear arises when we think that we can’t but instead of wasting our time in thinking what will benefit us is, what we do!
“Thinking will not overcome fear but action will” ~BY W. CLEMENT STONE
OVERCOMING OUR FEAR
Now suppose that we have accepted the fact that it is just a fear and we try to manage them by doing what we fear. Then, there is a hope that we’ll enjoy doing the things which we fear. Because, mostly we fear what we cannot do or what we are bad at! But when we do things which we fear we can surely become comfortable at it. And that is how our fear will no longer be our fear. Moreover ,it will be a positive energy to live our dreams!

So, Hurry Up! Make your fears your “fondest fears”!
