The first step to overcoming your fears and doubts is to understand that you are not the same as other people. Every person has their own journey, approach, and perspective. Trying to please others or being better than them is not a good thing. Fears are normal. We don’t need to crush them; we just need to acknowledge and appreciate them. After all, infants and dogs bark and wail because they don’t know how to communicate with each other.
Identifying the source of your fear
Your fear of the opinion of others can prevent you from being your most authentic self. This irrational fear is common in today’s world and can have a negative impact on your performance and self-esteem. It may make you feel small and tense when you have to speak in front of people, or it may make you nervous to perform at your highest level.
If you want to overcome your fear, you must identify its source and find a solution. Therapy can help you do this. A therapist can help you process your fears and develop strategies that will reframe your thinking. For example, you can write down what your fears are and what you would accomplish if you were to face them.
Identifying the negative voice in your head
One of the worst aspects of comparison is the nagging belief that you’re never good enough. This belief is founded on the notion that success is a scarce resource. This fear of others succeeding leads to a constant state of panic and fluctuation, causing you to feel as if your efforts are in vain. In order to deal with this problem, you must learn how to identify and eliminate the negative voice in your head.
