Hey guys!!! There are always life situations where we feel completely terrified. Some situations in life are really scary. They just scare every bit of us. Maybe it’s our first interview or first proposal to a girl. Maybe it’s our first baseball match with experienced players or our first day at workplace or our first meeting with our girlfriend’s family. Situation can be anything but the fear of facing a terrific situation is really terrifying. So today, let’s learn how to face a scary situation without any fear in our favourite, Expeknow style!
Life can be really scary at times. Sometimes, we just have to face some situations which scares us the most. Let’s say, tomorrow you have to give a presentation in front of some business men. This is really scary for you because you haven’t given any presentation in front of business men. Now, how should you face this presentation? You can’t even miss this presentation so there is no way to escape. What would you do in this situation.
Well, to face a situation like this, you must face a situation which is scarier than this. Yes, it may look very stupid but it is a really good technique. In our example, I can try to give a presentation in front of a whole crowd of people or maybe I can try to do the presentation practice in a park with a lot of people watching me. This may be scarier than the coming situation and this is what will make me powerful.
As it is said “The more you sweat in peacetime, the less you bleed in war“. This is really powerful. This means that the harder you are on yourself, the easier life is on you. If you are afraid of a situation, do something that is scarier than the situation you are afraid of. It’s that simple.
In our example, for me, the presentation is more important than the expression of people in the park. This is all about what are you willing to bleed for. If you really want to face a situation which is important as well as scary for you, try doing something which is scarier than that situation.
This is hard but you will have to face it. Either face the worse situation before facing bad situation or face the bad without and make it worse with your feelings of not being able to handle that situation. If the scary situation you are going to face is important enough for you, you will be ready to do something that is scarier than that to pass the first situation.
If you have faced the worse than the bad is nothing for you. This will boost your confidence and you will be able to handle the situation where you were scared at first. So, what did you learn today? If you feel afraid of any situation, do something that’s scarier than the first situation to make the first situation easy to handle.
