Overcoming the Cage of Irrational FEARS

By Dr. April Brown


Caged of Irrational Fears

Have you ever had big dreams and goals?  Of course you have… So where are you now in relation to your big dreams and goals? If you are not moving toward them, then somehow you got distracted.  Many times, we lose focus because FEAR wants to battle with us.  FEAR can have you so stuck in cage that when the doors (opportunities) open you become too anxious to leave.  In fact, FEAR may tell you “Don’t try”, “You can’t do that”, “You will fail again,” or worse “You are worthless.”  When you hear these things, then you are dealing with IRRATIONAL FEARS.  Should you just be stuck and listen to IRRATIONAL FEARS talk to you that way?  NO WAY!!!


Get Up, Get Out of Your Cage, and Take Action!!!


Here are 5 Quick Tips to Help You Overcome Irrational Fears


  1. Strengthen Your Mindset – Only let positive self-talk enter your mind. Divorce any negatively in your mind. You tell yourself – “You can do it.”, “Don’t give up.”, “I believe in you.”, and most importantly – “You are worth it.”
  2. Write out your goals, the plans to get your goals, any obstacles you can imagine, and all your resources. Then match your obstacles with your resources.
  3. Post your goals and plans somewhere that you can see them everyday
  4. Find someone who can make you accountable to your goals and who believes in you. If you have no one, then you must also play that role and be your own cheerleader.
  5. Finally take a jump toward your goal and have the faith that no matter what you will reach your goals one day.
