How to Overcome Fears

As soon as you turn on the news channel, you would hear things like, “how many people are dying, “how many people get into a car accident,” “How someone gets cancer, etc. – It just feels like the world is dying. The economy is collapsing. As you stay away from the news, you realize that nothing has changed. It is just you getting older every single day.

What is going on here?
Why is it that most people give in to fear?

When my optometrist told me that I had a brain tumor, the nurse looked pale. My then-fiancée started to shed her tear. On the contrary, I was too excited to enter the surgery room. I didn’t have any fear or regret. When my brain surgeon told me that my brain tumor was the size of the golf ball, I smiled and asked on how soon I could take it out.

“This is great. What’s your schedule look like?” – I asked the surgeon.

“I do the surgery every Tuesday and Friday,” – The surgeon replied.

Okay, let’s do it on October 17 then. It is because I had a launch I need to take care of,” – I replied with excitement.

Some people told me that it didn’t make any sense that I didn’t have any fear. One entrepreneur said to me that I must have fake my brain tumor story as I believe that everyone is entitled to their opinions. – Weeks later, he apologized to me via private messages as he saw the MRI scan I posted on Facebook. (Read my brain tumor story here) In less than few weeks, I sold most of my assets on my former business. And, before I entered the surgery room, I had even had a chance to say goodbye to all my friends via social media, texts, and phone.

The question is, “How do you overcome in life?

Instead of telling you not to have any fear in life, let me share with you exactly how I became fearless. – It allows you to see what you through the other side of fear, okay?

After my ex-girlfriend left me, I was pretty much at the lowest point of my life. I’ve almost become blind. My kidney, heart, and liver functions were failing rapidly. I knew at that time, the quickest way to end my suffering was to take the knife and killed myself. – Yep, I was very fearful and had an insufficient belief. I knew for the fact that if one more person snapped at me, I would have committed suicide.

Fortunately, instead of looking at circumstances as the curse from the universe or apocalypse, I looked at the situation as a reboot.

After doing some soul-searching, I realized that the unfortunate situation was a blessing in the sky. Besides, if I didn’t know the low, I wouldn’t be able to have the high. — I decided to do the opposite of everything I did in the past.

  • Instead of focusing on a win-lose situation, I decided to do things on my term where everything has to a win-win proposition.
  • Instead of focusing on chasing girls, I decided to look at me as a catch for every girl.
  • Instead of going after the cash, I decided to have others voluntarily handed me the money I want.
  • Instead of going for a mediocre life, I go after what I want.
  • Instead of chasing any beautiful girls, I decided to filter out any dates that I didn’t see fit.

When I mentioned my idea to a friend, Mr. Orange, he told me that I was crazy and would probably stay single forever. However, everywhere I went, I had girls asked me for a phone number. – One day, I went out with a beautiful lady. I would rate her as a 9.5 in term of her physical appearance. As I went out with her, many guys who sat across the table stared at me.

After the date, instead of calling her right away, I focused on building my business for the rest of the day. Two hours later, I received two messages from her. I replied by saying… “I had a nice time. Thank you.

The next day, after not checking my phone for more than five hours, I saw 15+ messages from her, and two missed calls. As I thought something has happened to her, I decided to call her back.

“Is everything okay?” – I asked as I got very concerned.

“Yeah, everything is fine. I just wanted to say I miss you,” – The sweet lady replied.

“I think that it is probably for us not to meet each other anymore. I like you, but I believe that you are not what I was looking for,” – I replied.

*I ended the conversation*

What was the point of this complete example? When you are in the fearful state, you will attract everything you asked. On the contrary, when you concentrate your energy on your purpose and mission in life, you become a high-value person. You don’t have to explain yourself. You don’t have feed into others people game and doubt of you. Instead, you need to focus on becoming the best version of yourself. It is the exact formula you need to have to live a limitless life.

Think about this very carefully, okay?

When I wrote about the passing of my sister (Read it here), one of my relatives called me to take the post down. I told her one word, “Never.” – After the first attempt failed, she started to ask my mom and my other sibling to gang up on me, she failed. Then, she asked my aunt to bashed me; I didn’t respond.

For me, my word means everything. I mentioned to my relative that the word “Never” means never. It doesn’t matter how my relative tried to gang up on me, used my mom to threaten me, I stated the fact. – Sure, everything has consequences in life. And, I am ready for whatever outcomes are coming my way whether it was good or bad.

However, there is one thing you MUST remember, okay?

When you do NOTHING to change your circumstances and allow others to influence your decision, you have already failed 100% of the time. – That is how you will always be in a fearful state at all time.

My point is, “let go of the need to be fearful.” – When you treat each day as if today is your last day on earth, which it can be, you will become fearless the rest of your life.

The question you need to ask yourself is, “What if today is your last day on earth, what are you going to do it differently?
