How would you like to be able to overcome the fear of flying?
If you are anything like me, the fear of flying probably stands in your way of being able to live your life fully.
I understand – I was one of the many adults suffering from flying fear, and I felt completely trapped and imprisoned by it.
The good news is… after trying many different ways to overcome my fear of flying, I realized one day as my boss was describing our next trip to new york, that it was completely gone.
There is hope for people like us, and I was lucky enough to stumble upon a solution that worked for me sheer luck.
Would you like to know my number one obstacle that kept me from getting rid of my fear?
It was simply this:
Lack of a good enough WHY!
What does that mean? Well, human beings are emotional beings, we respond and act based on our emotions much more than our logic. This can work both to our disadvantage and advantage, depending on how you chose to apply this knowledge.
If you want to overcome the fear of flying, you need to look within and find the real emotional reason behind why you no longer will tolerate this limiting fear.
When I was in your shoes, I realized that my big WHY – my main reason – was my wife… My wife loves to travel, and I felt like I was standing in her way of pursuing her passion. Re-framing my fear in that light helped me get the determination to take the necessary steps to overcome my fear of flying.
Warning: don’t discount the above piece of advice for its apparent simplicity.
