Overcoming My Fears

Fears can come from anywhere. Many of my fears come from bad experiences I had growing up that I’ve kept to myself for decades. My fears are not logical, they are emotional hot buttons that when triggered make me react poorly.

About a week ago my wife sent me a tiktok on how to overcome the fear of being on camera.

The video explained that one way to get over your fear is to desensitize yourself, by doing the thing that you fear over and over again.

I really dislike being on camera.
When I turn on a camera, I start getting anxious and uncomfortable. I feel embarrassed for being put on the spot. The feelings get worse as the seconds go by. Then I start feeling guilty because I feel bad that all of this is happening from just talking to a camera.

So I decided to take on the challenge of recording at least one video a day. I have recorded videos of myself for the past eight days. I plan to keep recording these videos until I no longer feel anxious in front of a camera.

I don’t like the feeling of being afraid or running away from things that scare me. I’ve let my fears control me in the past, and for me the pain of being controlled by my fears is greater than the fear itself.

@walterfsarmiento What's your biggest fear? I hate being on camera. Which makes tiktok painful sometimes 🤣. But I've learned it's always better to face your fears than let them control you. @Josh #fear #fearchallenge #fearless #influencer #challenges_tiktok ♬ original sound - Westchester & Bronx RealEstate

So I am constantly looking for ways to overcome any fears that I may have.

I have been making short videos now for over a week.  I’ve only posted the first one, because I want my videos to also be interesting!  Why post something that’s really not that interesting?

Anyways, here is the video I posted for day #1 of my challenge. 

So let me ask you, what fears have you overcome?  Is there anything that you are afraid of now that you want to get over?

Let me know, I would love to hear from you.  Let's talk soon.
