How To Overcome Fear In Your Life, Your Fulfilling Work, And Your Mind

Fear keeps us afraid — and in a perpetual state of vigilance, afraid that everything will go wrong and we’ll never find what we’re looking for. In this talk, you’ll learn about the three essential components of the mind that keep you safe and in control all the time. You’ll also discover several strategies on how to overcome fear and conquer your fears.

In a recent study conducted on people who had recently undergone surgery to treat a traumatic brain injury, researchers discovered that the brain’s fear response is often not so much a conscious response as a natural response that happens before we make a conscious decision, and the reaction is more complex and nuanced the more the decision is involved.

Many people have experienced anxiety when they encounter a daunting or stressful situation that they were not prepared for, such as when starting a new job, the first few days of a dating relationship, or just starting a new home. Many people also struggle with anxiety when faced with a new group of people, such as when going to a new college class with a new group of friends. The feelings of anxiety are not necessarily related to the situation directly, but can be the result of a chain of thought patterns that triggers a fear response when the person fails to recognize or handle the situation appropriately. In fact, many people who suffer from anxiety describe feeling overwhelmed, overwhelmed with the emotional intensity inherent to the situation, or simply overwhelmed by the complexity of thought that came into the mind when faced with the new situation or group of people.

In this talk, you’ll learn that although the actual emotion of anxiety has nothing to do with you, your brain and body respond in the same way, both in response to the fear of something. You’ll also discover that a person with anxiety does not have to be in a situation that is actually dangerous to experience anxiety. Indeed, you will discover that a lot of people struggle with anxiety when they feel overwhelmed or overwhelmed by a difficult or scary situation that they are not even ready or prepared for. And in fact, the more prepared and comfortable you are with the situation, the less likely you are to experience anxiety.

In fact, the reason why some people feel so overwhelmed is that their brain’s normal response to a challenge is to try to avoid feeling overwhelmed and stressed by the situation, whether it is a difficult class, going to a new college, or even starting a new relationship. In other words, a lot of people find a lot of relief from the feeling of fear when they don’t need to be concerned about the fear, it’s something they can handle as they proceed on in life.

Fear is an emotion we experience because we are not able to think clearly, which creates a cognitive, or awareness, barrier to understanding or responding to another person’s feelings. When we have a strong, well-developed system of cognitive awareness, it allows us to be in a better position to evaluate our actions and decisions, and is an important means by which we develop as critical thinkers.

In this talk, you will learn the basic principles of cognitive awareness, which helps us to identify and interpret our feelings and perceptions. You will also discover how we can strengthen our cognitive awareness, as this can not only be used to cope with the fears that keep us up at night, to enhance our ability to deal with life’s challenges, and to reduce anxiety, but also to help us become more proactive in achieving our goals and in living life.

As you’ll discover throughout this presentation, fear has deep ramifications on our minds and bodies. When we’re under stress, fear can activate specific parts of the brain called the HPA, or Hormonal Stress Response, and the HPA system helps us respond to stress by producing stress hormones like cortisol, adrenaline, and noradrenaline.
