What Is Fear?

What Is Fear?

Fear only exists to you in your mind and it is protecting you from the unknown. 

As human being, it's going to be normal to feel fear. It's going to happen for the rest of your life, but you do now want to let your fear control you. That is the choice that you get to make.

Debunk Your Fears

Debunk Your Fears

"There's nothing to fear but fear itself"

Most of the time it's not the thing that you're afraid of. It's the actual fear that's holding you back. 

You should be afraid of the fear, because the fear is going to hold you back more than a hypotetical situation really will.

"Are These Thoughts Evidence-based or am I Just Thinking Irrationally?"

"Are These Thoughts Evidence-based or am I Just Thinking Irrationally?"

You always have the power to choose your thoughts. When we're afraid, we focus on the negative thoughts, when in reality there are so many other positive thoughts that can support you. 

Your fear is just one thought, is just one option. But there are other thoughts and other options out there for you to choose from.

Choose your thoughts like you're choosing what clothes to wear. If wearing something makes you feel ugly then don't wear that it, wear something that makes you feel confident.

Action Dissolves Fear

Action Dissolves Fear

You want to feel the fear and do it anyway.

When you're sitting there doing nothing, only thinking, you allow your thoughts and your fears to run how you feel about yourself.

When you are not taking action, you live more in your mind. It's all really an illusion in your mind. 

When you're taking action, you're focused on the external world and it kind of takes your mind off things because you're focused on taking action.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

samz905

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
