Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Fear . . . . A Negative Thought Pattern

Fear . . . . A Negative Thought Pattern



Fear . . . . A Negative Thought Pattern

“Of course people are afraid. But honestly facing that

 fear, seeing it for what it is, is the only way

of putting it to rest.”

Edna Ferber 1885 - 1968, American Novelist, Short Story

Writer, and Playwright




As I see it . . . . . . . .   

Fear . . . .  A negative thought pattern


Everyone at some point in their live will experience some form of fear. How you respond to that fear will determine the direction that your future will move in.


Fears become a death sentence for your mind . . . . and create negative thought patterns.  


You have to look past your fears . . . and remove them from your thoughts . . . . and from your life. Replace the fears . . . . with a positive outlook for your future . . . . and see your future as productive and successful.


A fear is . . . . False Evidence Appearing Real . . . .


The only way that you can successfully control . . . . and overcome your fears is to face them head on.


A fear is a negative thought pattern . . . . that has to be replaced with a new positive thought pattern.


Facing your fears will take courage . . . . and will not always be an easy process. You have to recognize and acknowledge your fears . . . . Then make the decision to overcome then. That decision will change the course of your life. When you put your fears behind you . . . . You will feel a weight being lifted off your shoulders. 


Take corrective measures to overcome the fears . . . . as you do you recapture the control of your life . . . . and your future. Then push the fears aside . . . . step forward with confidence . . . . and move on leaving the fear behind you.


Face your fears . . . . and you will be facing your future with breath of fresh air . . . . and with a positive can do attitude.


Fear . . . . A negative thought pattern that is in need to be replaced with a new positive thought pattern.

Hi Lou Ludwig - Fear results mainly when you don't know what to expect. Planning and due diligence helps to calm the nerves.

Fear is paralyzing for many and it is so hard to get going and to try to make something good happen.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 2 years ago

It's amazing how we as people can become so enamored and immobilzed by fear.   Not knowing the outcome and afraid of the worst instead of focusing on the results if we face our fears and work in spite of them.
