We may feel fear when we have to do something for the first time. For example, for someone who has to speak in front of hundreds of people for the first time, it is normal that they feel fear in this situation, and it is normal that their fear diminishes as they keep doing this over and over again. Their perception of the situation (and their feelings) will change every time they do it successfully. We may feel fear after a bad experience; a child who was subject to drowning in water may never forget this bad experience and could never try to learn to swim again. In this case, fear is not normal, as there are millions of people who go into the water every day without feeling any fear. The child’s perception of the experience is that it is dangerous; he will feel fearful until he changes this perception or he will keep this attitude forever. Therefore, in any perceived situation, there is a certain thought that causes a specific feeling that initiates our behavior. So our perceptions and our thoughts in the beginning are the cause behind the feeling of fear that we have. If we think what thoughts come to our mind when we are fearful, we realize that they are all negative thoughts. We could ask ourselves tens of “What If” questions that are usually the worst that could happen and eventually augment our fear.
I was looking for a name, an inspiring name, for my coaching blog. A name that signifies a new start, a new beginning and a new life. For me coaching means making a change or even a transformation which also means starting a new path in personal life or in professional life; change in lifestyle, beliefs, behaviors, job or even change of career. So I needed to find a name that expresses a new start.
