There is a fix to being afraid of the unknown.

Anticipating what will happen in the future is a strength that can be developed. Vision will keep you moving forward regardless of your fears.

The fear of inadequacy

The first thing people fear is not being skilled enough.

Once you admit the fear of inadequacy, you will begin to see what you need to do to step out and tackle that fear.

The anxiety that comes from worry doesn’t bring success into your life any faster.

If you are in the midst of tragedy, remember that restoration will eventually come.

The fear of losing control

This fear can be helpful, but only in moderation.

There are key areas of life that we can and should control, like our schedules, our self-perception and the words we speak, but there are things in life that are outside our control.

Your life, like everyone else, will not go exactly as planned. There are just some things out of your control.

However, practice identifying the things you can control in your journey and focus on them.

The fear of missing out (FOMO)

FOMO can cripple your success. It keeps you focused on what every other person in the world is doing, rather than on the people right in front of you.

You can fight this fear by slowing down and focusing on the people you come in contact with every single day.

It’s common to grow weary of the feeling of judgement from peers or managers.

Instead of being afraid about what others think, embrace your personal story. That is what makes you unique.
