Fear of Not Fitting In

The fear of rejection is ingrained in us.

Overcome this by understanding that people want to know you listen to their ideas and concerns.  Your team will appreciate knowing you will hear them out.

Problem Solving

Fear of Feeling Stuck

You are able to rise above this fear. We all want to feel that we can be promoted and rewarded in a company.

Ask yourself: What does my boss’s boss want and need? How can I contribute with my skills, expertise and results?

Fear of Being Disliked

It's a human trait to seek the attention and praise of others.

When you genuinely find something to like in others, they usually respond in kind. Be friendly to everyone. Be confident you are a likable person.

Fear of Inadequacy/Failure

Fear of failure can make us reluctant to try new, challenging projects.

Remember there is no such thing as perfect. Be willing to try new things and do them imperfectly.

Fear of Being Fired

There are many reasons anyone can get fired: For example, the company can lose key customers. We can’t always control it, but we can plan for it. 

  • Know the industry and where your company fits in that market. 
  • Ask your boss what you can do to help alleviate workload and make progress with projects and goals.
  • Keep a list of your accomplishments so you can use them if you suddenly need to update your resume.

More meaning tends to be better. A complete absence of meaning usually feels awful. Similarly, a lack of meaning in the conceptual sense is confusion and ignorance. We’d prefer to say what things mean and believe it, than to simply shrug our shoulders and say, “I don’t know."

IDEAS

  • Take note of when you’re ruminating and what triggers it until you can see your patterns and find ways to counteract them.
  • Don't trust your first reaction when ruminating. Most of the time, it colors negatively your read of the situation.
  • Seek a diversion to break the rumination cycle.
  • Think positively: remembering your successes and times you tried new things helps you to not be avoidant of tasks you can’t do perfectly.
Allow worrisome thoughts

If you’re unable to sleep because you’re fixated on something stressful that’s happening the next day, it’s common to want to push those thoughts from your mind. However, doing so may hurt more than it helps.

Remembering the mundane tasks that follow something stressful, can help you recognize that the panic will pass.
