Tony Robbins said the acronym for fear is “False Evidence Appearing Real”. There is no true threat of immediate physical danger, no threat of a loss of someone or something dear to us, actually nothing there at all. Often fear is an illusion. Something we fabricate in our own minds and pretend is real. And overtime it becomes real.
Let Peter teach you how to overcome this fear by using his “FEER Formula”.
[ F ] Face it.
The first step is the hardest, but necessary. You can’t overcome fear by running away from it. That only works temporarily. When you turn toward your fear (rather than away from it), you notice things about your fear that you didn’t know before. This awareness helps you overcome it. To help yourself face your fears and anxiety, try keeping a journal over a period of two or three weeks. Jot down anything that seems significant. Transferring your fear patterns and symptoms into writing can help demystify them. They are no longer so big and insurmountable.
Examine the origin: When did it start? Where did it come from? Close your eyes and visualize it. Who was there? What did they say or how did they react? What are the physical symptoms that you experience? Nausea, raising heart, dry mouth? Record any patterns you notice. Let the pain consume you. How does it make you feel? What will happen if you allow it to continue? Why you won’t live another day stopping yourself from sharing yourself, out loud. Write it down!
[ E ] Embrace it.
This is how I have been. It is not who I can be now. I accept the past and am ready to move on to a more open me. The Me, who has a lot to give to the world and is not afraid to share it. The Me, who is a confident public speaker. Write in your journal all the great things that will occur for you as you change.
[ E ] Erase it.
Fear is an emotion and it can be changed. Learn how to build new anchors in your belief of self. Change the mindset of your fear. Techniques to SNAP yourself out of old ideas fyou have created to become who you want to be.
[ R ] Replace it.
To complete this process we must substitute old behaviors with new empowering ones.
