Recently I read a very interesting article by Dr John Demartini’s, entitled:

7 Fears That Can Immobilise You And Keep You From Being A Leader

It was such a brilliant article that I thought the only reasonable thing that I could do is to share it with you all and gather your thoughts as to what is behind all the FEARS that each one of us has. What causes us to be fearful?

Dr Demartini is an expert in human behaviour and succinctly narrows down all the fears that humans will experience or are experiencing in their lives into 7 distinct categories. These seven primary areas are: mental, vocational, financial, familial, social and physical and spiritual areas or quests. It is within these 7 areas that Dr Demartini explains that we are all capable of empowering and mastering but for some reason or other, we unfortunately choose to let it weaken or disempower us because we do not feel that we hold the true power to overcome them.

  1. The first fear is the mental fear of not knowing enough.
  2. The second fear is the vocational fear of failure.
  3. The third fear is the fear of financial poverty or loss of money.
  4. The fourth fear is the fear of losing your loved ones.
  5. The fifth fear, the fear of social rejection is a big one.
  6. The sixth fear is the fear of ill health, death or disease.
  7. The seventh and last fear is the spiritual fear of breaking the ethics of some perceived authority.

When looking at each one in detail, it does really sum up all areas of our fear systems. Dr Demartini advises that if you break each one down, you’re listening to your fearful self, if you break through you’ve listened to your empowered and masterful self. We all want to be in a position where we are “breaking through” our fear system to live an an empowered and elevated life free from such fears.

We do not want to constantly live a life whereby everytime we venture into something new, it sends our stomachs in knots making us physically sick and paralysed with fear.

We need to flip the switch and just get on with the task at hand, no matter what. It is only in the doing of this that we can truly let go of all the negative connotations that will physically keep us shackled and start to live a liberated and full life.

Dr Demartini recognises that even for himself, he has fears. Of course he does and almost everyday at that too! However, he has learnt to recognise that his fears are incomplete views of what is actually happening and are offering him great feedback to his incongruencies, or unrealistic expectations.

So one task that Dr Demartini and we urge you to do is identify your fears across all 7 areas of your live and bring them to balance. Walk through each one and see if there is a way for you to overcome this fear or ask yourself “is this fear really that big that I should let him create a limitation in my life”. More than often, you will find that the answer is “NO”.

This is your time to have a “breakthrough”
