Reply To: Phrasing help on fear of risk belief
Thanks for your post.
You are right. You can also, of course, use “I was afraid to take risks.”
I would recommend being clear on what those risks are. What might seem like a risk for one person is an emotionally neutral or positive part of everyday life.
So, you can use the Click Tracks while imagining taking the risks and this will help neutralise any unwanted emotions associated with taking risks – fear etc.
You can go deeper with this, if you deem it necessary.
You see, as you have presented it, being afraid to take risks is more of a consequence than a cause. Other beliefs and conditionings may contribute to the fear and I suspect they do.
To illustrate: if someone got physically attacked and experienced trauma as a result, “I am afraid to leave the house” (for example) is the consequence and not the cause of what happened to them. A belief like “It is dangerous to leave the house”, or “People are out to hurt me” would be causal.
What might the risk be? What would you have to believe about those situations or yourself to believe certain actions are a risk?
What is your worst case scenario when considering taking certain actions in your business?
Things can spring to the surface.
I recommend that you:
Sit with those and work through them. Words, feelings and beliefs…work through them.
Be clear and honest with yourself.
Thanks again for posting and please us know how you get on with it.
