The Human brain is our most valuable asset. In times of need, it can either be with or, against us. It all depends on how we train it to respond.

Why do we fear to grasp the things that are going to be positive changes in our life?

The fact is that the human brain is wired neurologically to respond to fear, but we condition it to see fear as positive growth and emotions of excitement. Wouldn’t it be great to never be held back by your own self-talk?

→ Ever been put in a social or intense situation where you have to present in front of a large audience or at an important event? It could be for a music recital, speech, debate, or even a talent show.

If you are a person that has never been in front of an audience, as a center of attention, this new experience will bring up some doubtful emotions.

“I can’t do it...” “I’ll mess up...” “What will others think of me?” ”I’ve never done this before...”

💡These are common thoughts that arise due to our subconscious brain generating the worst possible scenarios for something that hasn’t even occurred yet.

When we are up against a challenge, the primary mission of the brain is - survival. Our purpose has always been to survive long enough and pass on our genes in a never-ending chain. This is why the brain acts as a “safety belt,” protecting us from possible risks and exposure to potentially dangerous environments.

The Solution? 🛠️

Without the safety belt, our minds are free to open the doors to opportunities and seek the unknown.

When in a situation of fear and self-doubt: See yourself from a third perspective point of view. This helps you step out and look at yourself, be self-aware, and realize that nothing bad is truly happening. Only our brain is failing to accept something it hasn’t experienced before.
