3 Instant Strategies to Overcome Fear and Achieve Happiness and Peace of Mind
Once you know these three strategies, fear melts away. Let me illustrate the three secrets with a quick story. Then, I’ll give you them to you.
I spent time in the Midwest where I an old livestock farmer said to me, “Lori Prokop, I’ve learned my greatest life lesson from Hereford cows.”
I thought that was a bit unusual. After all, I’ve spoken to many great people who have shared many incredible life lessons. What could we learn from cows?
Well, I was shocked and grateful.
On cattle ranches, the freezing rain, bitter winds and extreme temperatures of winter storms can wipe out entire herds. Flying ice can even cut into flesh.
Facing this dangerous enemy, most cattle turn their backs and slowly drift downwind until they find another obstacle which stops them. Be it a river, fence or something, they pile up against the obstacle and die in large numbers.
But Herefords intuitively stand shoulder-to-shoulder facing the icy storms with their heads down against the bitter blasts.
The farmer told me, “Well, Lori Prokop, you almost always find the Herefords alive and well. It is the greatest lesson from the open range. Just face life’s storms.”
When a person stands up to a challenge or fear that challenge or fear tends to fold and give way. People with courageous persistence win.
Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.”
Do not attempt to ignore what you fear and go drifting with the wind. Every person must decide over and over whether to deal with fearful situations or to run away.
Most fears are unfounded and empty. A successful businessman in his 60’s calculated that only about 8 percent of what he feared had happened. He looked back on his life saying that 92 percent of what he feared never came to be.
Of the 8 percent of fears that did occur, he said, “Lori, I just stood up to them with persistence. It was my persistence that overcame them. All fears are controllable.”
Here are three strategies to overcome fear and achieve happiness and peace of mind.

Be a person of persistent faith. Most importantly, say morning, noon and night, “I will not be motivated or dominated by fear or anxiety any more. I remove fear and anxiety from my mind. I now decide my fear and anxiety will be brought under control and eliminated. I am a person of persistence and faith.”
In addition to this statement, you will need to choose matching thoughts and actions. This statement will program your mind to remove and reject fear-based thoughts.

Work on fears one at a time. With a pen and piece of paper, write out all the fears you have. Make as complete and honest a list as possible. Look over your list and determine the fear that disturbs you the most. Decide to resolve that fear alone, first.
Most people’s strength, energy and persistence are powerful enough to resolve one fear at a time. Resolving all fears or multiple fears at one time can be more than a person could energetically handle.
When you overcome one fear and then the next, you will experience an increased sense of accomplishment, confidence and personal power you can use to defeat all the fears on your list.

Increase your faith and persistence power. Faith and persistence can be the result of a long-practiced mental and spiritual process.
Often, those who need faith and persistence the most need it now. They don’t have time for years of spiritual development. To develop faith and persistence quickly and powerfully, I suggest learning and mastering your inner Life Guidance System.
What is your Life Guidance System?
It is a chart of 21 emotional levels which each person uses, with or without awareness, to create and react to situations in his or her life.
At the bottom of the chart is fear which creates 1% of what you do want and 99% of what you don’t want. In the middle of the chart is anger which creates 30% of what you do want and 70% of what you don’t want.
A little higher is contentment which creates 75% of what you do want and 25% of what you don’t want. At the top of your inner Life Guidance System is love and gratitude which manifests 100% of what you do want and 0% of what you don’t want.
You create your life experiences from your chosen emotional levels. As you choose higher and higher emotions, you will be amazed how much easier, more peaceful and more successful your life becomes.
