Conquering Doubt And Fear

Conquering Doubt And Fear

Chiropractic Longview WA Conquering Fear

"Doubt and fear are the great enemies of knowledge, and he who encourages them, who does not slay them, thwarts himself at every step"  - James Allen

Dear Friends,  

"A person who has doubts is like a wave that is blown by wind and tossed by the sea. A person who has doubts shouldn't expect to receive anything from the Lord. A person who has doubts is thinking about two different things at the same time and can't make up his mind about anything."  James 1: 6-8

The indecision that doubt creates can prevent you from doing things that would make your life more complete. It can also rob you of your purpose or reason of being.

Vic Johnson tells us of three things we can do to conquer doubt:

  1. Control your thoughts. Fear is the outcome of the seed of doubt. Bob Proctor explains it like this "Doubt first begins as a thought which causes an emotion of fear which manifests itself physically as anxiety." Anxiety robs you of your energy and purpose. Severe anxiety can undermine your health.
  2. Do the things you fear and fear will disappear. Action feeds and strengthens confidence, inaction in all forms feeds fear. To fight fear act. Taking action tends to foster and strengthen confidence, while inaction or postponement tends to generate fear and anxiety. When you run away because you are afraid to do something big you pass opportunity by. Most often physical action is required to conquer fear.
  3. Have Faith. By the power of faith every enduring work is accomplished, declares James Allen. Norman Vincent Peale said, "You can cancel out fear with faith.. Hold that thought of faith's greater power until you believe it, for it can be the difference between success and failure". Everyone is afraid at some time or another. You can succeed in conquering fear if you put your focus on what is more important and have faith that you can overcome.

Just a few nuggets that I need to remember for my own personal life. I hope this can help you also.

Have a great rest of the week!
