How to Overcome Fear So You Can Thrive

How to Overcome Fear So You Can Live to Thrive [Video]1 min read

I’m often asked how to overcome fear. Fear is a common problem. It often stands in the way of reaching personal goals in the areas of faith, relationships and work.

I’ve had times in my life where I wanted to trust God rather than my own wisdom. I gave in to fear, and took a path that seemed right, only to find out it wasn’t.

  • Fears of rejection caused me to miss out on relationships that could have been wonderful. I’ll never know.
  • Fears of failing caused me to not pursue career and job opportunities that could have been rewarding.

We’re hard-wired for fear, but we weren’t designed to have fear run our lives. Fear is to protect us from real dangers. We’re good at imagining dangers that don’t exist, or making things out to be more dangerous than they are.

I still have fears. I still have fears to overcome in my faith, my relationships and my work. The good news is, I can overcome them.

You can overcome your fears, too.

When we do, we become more of what God designed us to be.

We can live to thrive.
