How to handle fear

It's terrible. This feeling of uncertainity. What if, I don't clear? Feels like the more I am reading the more I am forgetting. I just realised that I don't know anything. And mains is just less than a week.

Dar lag raha hai yaar.
Ahista chal ae jindagi abhi, kai karz chukana baki hai.

  • As sister marry says ," its good that we have fear but its bad if we surrender ".
  • To conquer fear, you must become fear!
    An Ounce of Action Is Worth a Ton of Theory

    You talk when u cease to be at peace with your mind

  • Feel the fear. Get afraid. Get an experience. Experience that experience. Learn from it. And then move on and apply that learning somewhere. Again repeat the cycle.

    The toughest part is applying the experience. But yes. Is there another way?

  • I was victim of fear all my childhood and early 20s too....i tried to understant it.....and i came up with a 'fear hypothesis' which is too long to be shared here..... I just want u to say....u can't eliminate fear....today u fear failure, tomorrow losing ur loved ones ..some day fear of death and chain continues....consiousness evolve out of fear...reproduction is out of fear......primal fear is something which is deeply seated in all an will emerge in different forms...... Fear ends only the day ..living thing realize that its just soul...which can never be destroyed and salvation is achieved....nirvana is the day when this primal fear ends...so u can know ..how deeply seated is the fear.....u will hve to keep fighting fear...accept it...u cant avoid it......... And a friend said above....face the fear....if u fear ghost..spen a night alone in haunted place...fear of losing a beloved ends if u loose one...fear of failure goes when u fail ...... Don't waste time on fear.....it will go away..with experience...focus on ur goals...

  • I don't have a fear of failure. It's a part of life. But I have a fear of cockroaches, how to overcome that?
    If UPSC says that it will give me Rank 1 but in return I'll have to hold a cockroach in my hand. I would gladly say "F**k you, UPSC" :#
    The day we decided that the worth of an individual was determined by their performance in an examination, that was the day Education failed us.

    pre is just qualifying.

  • To conquer fear, you must become fear!

    To become fear, you need to pass the fear of other men. A man fears the most what he can't see :wink:

  • Everything we dream in life is always on the other side of the fear. No choice mate. Life is grand prank on us :p

    Many people say fear is good...but I strongly oppose it. Fear always kills. Antidote of fear is calmness.Calm people never fear about things which are inevitable. Fear comes when we attach to much importance to things. Only way to overcome fear is to not attach too much importance to the moment you are fearing about. Just take it as one work in life. A try, an effort. Nothing more will be of any any gain to you.
  • Darr lag ra hai to samjho sahi ja rahe ho. Jo mehnat karta hai use apni mehnat waste hone ka darr lagta hi hai. But tell darr slowly in ear that himmat hai to roko jurrat hai to bandho i will beat ur backside everytime and divide it by 2 everytime. Bcoz u know where is the identity proof of real wrestler ....

    Its very normal to be anxious before exam. But push that fear to side lane on the night of 2nd December and keep it at bay till the exam is over. Confidence is key on the day of exam. Doesnt matter how much you have read and what you retain, if you can keep your nerves calm you can make it. Have propranolol if u cant control fear. ATB

    If those who think to achieve,
    Have a firm and focused mind,
    They will realize what they thought of,
    And even as they have thought of.

    Its an internal battle that needs to be won. Keep reminding yourself that you are strong and will not succumb to it. Always tell you subconcious that you have done everything and how awesome you are.
