Fear is one of the most powerful emotions. But the fear of being judged by others, is not really the problem in living a life without limits, it’s what you do when fear sets in. It’s your actions when fear and self-doubt occur, that determines your path to “success” or of feeling “stuck.”
Overcoming the fear of being judged by others is critical to living your life without limits.
Whenever we follow our own path or dreams, we face the fear of being judged by others. We are all here to be creative and to follow our dreams and passions, with our own unique gifts to share with the world. This is part of being who we are, that sets us apart and sometimes allows us to fall into the fear of being judged.
I know it has been a huge struggle for me and each time we worry about being judged we hold ourself back from being our most creative and original self. We block ourselves from our true purpose.
The truth is, the further you step outside the box, the more vulnerable you feel. It’s a real block for me that I constantly have to battle. What I know is that, it’s totally in MY HEAD. The whole world does not judge and watch us. Of the people that do notice what we are doing, most are not judging.
Many people are totally impressed by your unique gifts and talents and that we tend to dismiss.
So when the fear of being judged appears, here are a few of the things that will help you overcome it.
Acknowledge that fear of being judged is a real and common fear. Like anything else the fear of being judged by others can’t be overcome until you understand and acknowledge that it exists, and that it really is YOUR fear.
Most people are not judging you at all, but are busy living their own lives.
Don’t look for other people’s approval. I know this sounds difficult but whenever I notice I am falling into this trap, I tell myself, “Other peoples opinion of me is none of my business.” It sounds a little silly but it works.
Take action. The sooner you take action the better. Like other fears that you face as you grow and build the life of your dreams, your fear of being judged diminishes each time you step into it. So the best way to conquer it is to take steps forward, no matter how small, each day.
We are all here for our own unique purpose and story. We all choose to fulfill our purpose and live our life without limits or to live with regret.
