Controlling Your Fears

I seem to be getting a lot of email queries or comments in my inbox these days about fears. Perhaps it’s a sign of the times.

If there is a fear that is at the back – or even the front - of your mind then one thing you can try in order to try to start taking control of it rather than vice versa is to answer the questions below:

1. What is the event that you fear?
2. How likely is it to happen? – Jot down the arguments for and against it occurring and then give a percentage estimate.
3. If it does happen, what will the consequences be?
4. What can you do to reduce the likelihood of the event happening?
5.If the event does happen then what can you do to help you cope and move forward?

Whether or not the event happens, at least the above exercise may give you an outline plan to help deal with it realistically and positively if it does occur.
