Powerful Tips to Help You Become Fearless



When you think about your life, how many times were you discouraged by fear? How many opportunities did you miss, and how many times did fear compromise your beliefs? From injustices that you had to overlook because you were afraid to speak up, to chances lost because you didn’t want to take a risky leap of faith. And when you look at important people from history or even people you admire that are around you, it is obvious that the best of humans are the ones with strong wills, with uncompromising kindness and bravery to them.
But how did they become like this? Were they born into it? For the most part, no. Fearlessness is something that you need to learn, it’s a lesson that life will give to you if you let it. If you want to know how to embrace it and become truly bold, then there are some things that you can do. Fearlessness comes from bravery


Fearlessness and bravery are actually not the same thing. To be brave is to face your fears, and it’s the first step you need to take to be able to let them go completely. For the most part, fear is something that never comes true. The human mind simply tends to focus on bad things and memorize them better, but being afraid of failure is generally a self-perpetuating prophecy. It doesn’t happen because it’s a representation of reality, it happens because we are so focused on bad things that it stunts our ability to see good things around us and makes us lose confidence.
So, what should you do? Face your fears. Slowly, step by step. Look at what makes you afraid and examine why it makes you afraid.


Meditation
 
Meditation is a form of self-reflection, and there’s no greater way to soothe a troubled mind than to meditate on a daily basis. The process doesn’t have to be long at all – only 5-10 minutes a day can make a huge difference in your life and allow you to let go of your anxiety. Breathing deeply and reciting a mantra is a good way to start, and don’t worry about making your mind completely blank. It doesn’t have to be, you can take it slow and simply use this time to find peace. To inhale and then let go of negativity with each exhale until there’s none of it left, until you can look at the problem rationally and realize that you can solve it.


Loving yourself


All your quirks, all your strange, different thoughts and characteristics, all of you. Your mind, body, and soul, your experiences, and all the good things in your life. Loving yourself will bring you confidence, and a confident person is a fearless person, it’s someone who won’t be put down by others, who won’t let things stand in their way. Know your own worth.



Something to inspire you

In Japan, there is a very long history of tattoos. First celebrated then reviled, there came a point in historyy during the Second World War where the Japanese Emperor banned them altogether, and citizens weren’t allowed to get their body inked. Not only did this fail to stop them, but it actually made the act of getting tattooed a symbol of pride among certain classes. In fact, since they couldn’t ban foreigners from getting their own markings, sailors who came would get their skin inked and travel back abroad to show it off. The style became internationally famous, and is now one of the most respected ones even today.
In Australia particularly, getting custom Japanese tattoos in Sydney is still a matter of pride. From cherry blossoms that signify feminine beauty, to dragons that show courage, strength, wisdom, and signify someone who wishes to be a force of good. The point here is this: nothing and no one can stop you from doing what you want unless you allow them. No one gets to define you, and choosing a symbol of your own strength can be a powerful motivator. Whether you get a tattoo, put up a motivational poster on your bedroom wall, or simply have a mantra that you repeat when you’re troubled, it works. It’s something that’s only yours.


Embracing your uniqueness
 
Your experiences, your interests, and your tastes are what separates you from the rest, and the way to fit in isn’t to change these things about yourself. It’s to embrace them and rock your own way of dressing, talking, and ultimately, living.



Physical exercise
Fear impacts us in a very negative way, and it’s not just because it makes us anxious. Our physical health can suffer deeply, and one of the best ways to counteract the effects of fear and to, indeed, find a new source of strength, is physical exercise. Being stronger, faster, most nimble, and full of energy will make us feel better in our own skin, so why not start practicing yoga, or going to the gym, or practicing a sport that you’ve always wanted to try?


Let fear pass through you and then wither away. Once it’s gone, the true you remain – unafraid,happy, and beautiful.
