Today we'd like to talk about something even the best of us needs more of sometimes: Courage. And if there's one thing that's difficult to do it's regain your courage after an event takes it away. No one is born brave, just as no one is born cowardly. Instead, it is an assessment of the world around us combined with our understanding of ourselves that generates either confidence and stability or remind us constantly of one or a few events that resulted in a perpetual state of fear either on the surface or rooted in our subconscious.
Think to yourself for a moment. What are you afraid of? And when do you need courage the most? Wouldn't it be great if you could replace that fear with an epic courage that allowed you to overcome every boogeyman and replace it with a potential opportunity? Courage is what empowers us to do this. For every disaster there is the potential for a hero. But if that hero is being blocked by an irrational level of fear, he or she will not be able to react. And this can lead in certain circumstances to a guilt that could haunt them for the rest of their lives. With irrational fear, this is a risk we all take. So, the goal is to help people eliminate their irrational fears and imbue them with courage.
Fear has always had a reputation as a killer of the mind. In humanity's early development some very basic mechanisms were put into place to ensure every living complex organism had an aversion to danger based on their own assessments. Eventually, this mechanism became entangled with the complex web of symbols in our society and no longer held its focus on survival, but rather comfort. This eventually means it no longer worked for the benefit of humanity, but rather to its detriment. You may know what we mean, but let me illustrate a situation.
You've been talking to a prospective romantic interest for a few days or even weeks now and you think it's about time you made a move and asked them out. Yet every time you talk to them you're paralyzed with fear. Is this because you're afraid that talking to them could be detrimental to your survival? Absolutely not. You're not really "afraid" in the traditional sense. Rather, your courage has become entangled with the complex system of symbols within our society and your fear has translated over to social discomfort and how you will feel about yourself in the unlikely event that you are rejected. Fear is the mind killer, but it is also the killer of dreams and aspirations.
Have you ever had a nightmare? We don't mean just a bad dream, but a full blown nightmare that fully exercises every part of your mind dedicated to fear. Think about the symbols involved. A lot of them aren't inherently terrifying. Or at least they wouldn't be to a different person if they saw the images out of context. Yet the brain knows exactly what we fear and can maximize elements of a not necessarily frightening symbol and turn it into a behemoth of pure terror. And just as the mind can take something unnerving and make it terrifying, it can take something terrifying and put it into a context that makes it acceptable.
The mind deals with symbols in strange ways often. Certain symbols are often portrayed in the horror genre. Think about a scary basement or an old house that evokes a feeling of dread. It is largely frightening because of what it symbolizes to us. An understanding of symbols coupled with a recalibration of mental processes is what we need in order to give you the courage to overcome all irrational fears.
