The Overcoming Fear IQ Matrix explores how to defeat the fears that are holding you back from living your best life. Our fears are debilitating things that rob us of our energy, our dreams, and our opportunity for redemption. They are very much like rubber bands flinging us back and forth into our comfort zones the moment we attempt to expand our possibilities. Our fears are indeed horrible figments of our imaginations; very much like dreams — seemingly real, yet entirely fictional occurrences taking shape within the recesses of our minds.
To overcome our fears, we must first realize that our fears are actually blessings in disguise. They not only help us to understand our tendencies and motives but also assist us with discovering new paths and opportunities for making the most of every situation. And if this sounds like something you would like to do, then this map will show you the way. Working through this mind map will help you to overcome the fears that are holding you back from living your best life and from making the best of every situation.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Overcoming Fear mind map.
- Self-Sabotaging Fears: The first branch of this map uses the words F.E.A.R. as an acronym that means False Evidence Appearing Real. It then provides a breakdown of everyday fear-driven actions that will hold you back from pursuing your desired goals and objectives. And it also breaks down the consequences of succumbing to our fears.
- Evolution of Fear: The second branch of this map explores the evolutionary path of fear and how it evolves through childhood and continues to persist through adulthood. This branch explicitly outlines the origins of our fears and how that impacts our lives as adults.
- Fear Conquering Tactics: The third branch of this map delves into several effective fear conquering tactics that you can use to overcome your fears and the limiting habits and behaviors that support them. Here you are also presented with a three-step self-analysis questioning process for overcoming fear. Use these questions to shift how you are interpreting your fears.
- Developing Courage: The final branch of this map provides you with several guidelines that will help you cultivate a more courageous mindset each day. The branch specifically breaks down the characteristics to nurture and the habits that you must build to develop a courageous mentality. Courage is, of course, not the absence of fear, but rather acting in the presence of fear. You, therefore, don’t need to overcome your fear to act courageously. You instead need to act courageously, only then will your fears slowly dissipate over time
This map provides a roadmap and framework for overcoming the fears that hold you back from accomplishing your goals. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
Stick with these principles, memorize and incorporate them into your life, and you will progressively work through the fears that are holding you back from living your best life and making the best of every situation.
