Top 5 Empowering Quotes on Fear

1. The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

Fear is such a debilitating emotion, if left unchecked. It robs us of our ambition and hope. It renders our mind ineffective and saps us of our strength. Franklin D. Roosevelt is right, there is only one thing to fear and that is fear.

2. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. ~ Bible – 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJB)

While it is human to experience fear in life, that is not God’s plan for us.

God has given us that all important gift of choice. We can allow our human nature to dominate or we can focus on our divine qualities bestowed upon us by our creator – that of power, love, and a sound mind.

How will you choose to deal with the events of your life?

Be still, pray and meditate on God’s goodness and be open for your blessing to appear where fear once stood.

Guard your greatest asset, your mind, and keep it continually focused on good positive and uplifting thoughts.

The whole reason I built Inspiration Oasis is to create a place in cyberspace where people could go to find empowering uplifting thoughts to brighten their day. I hope you will visit my site whenever you need encouragement.

3. We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Every seemingly negative event or situation in our life that triggers fear can actually be the stepping stone to a more developed inner strength, courage, and confidence.

If you already experienced the pain of fear… demand your blessing in disguise to manifest by having the courage to face your fear and discover your strength.

4. Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. ~ Dale Carnegie

Dale always has such practical and sound advice.

If you have been shut down by fear and doubt, think of at least one step you can take right now to move yourself in the right direction. Keep this process up on a daily basis until you are no longer in a distressing place.

5. Fears are educated into us, and can, if we wish, be educated out.
~ Karl Augustus Menninger

Yes, if you struggle with fears – there is hope for you. With diligent effort you can educate yourself to develop hope, learn how to effectively seek out solutions and develop the courage to overcome your fears and live the life of your dreams.

Tools for Living an Inspired Life

Since this month has to do with fear, I am recommending the book Uncertainty: Turning Fear and Doubt into Fuel for Brilliance by Jonathan Fields.

Jonathan Fields knows the risks-and potential power-of uncertainty. He gave up a six-figure income as a lawyer to make $12 an hour as a personal trainer. Then, married with a 3-month old baby, he signed a lease to launch a yoga center in the heart of New York City. . . the day before 9/11. But he survived, and along the way he developed a fresh approach to transforming uncertainty, risk of loss, and exposure to judgment into catalysts for innovation, creation, and achievement.

Buy this book to learn the necessary "tweaks" in your routines and mindset to be able to handle fear and uncertainty so you can become successful and fulfilled.

For the month of October 2012 only:

I am offering a FREE introductory 20 minute coaching session on fear to see if coaching is right for you. What do you have to lose?

Contact me via email letting me know your availability and time zone so we can schedule an appointment.
