Is fear really necessary ?

 

Is fear a good thing?  Is there an alternative to fear ?

Yes and no.

Yes in short term situations when a tiger is trying to bite your ass and you freeze with fear.

Or fear could be useful as an incentive to try our best not to repeat the situation we fear in our lives.

What is fear ?

Fear is like looking at the future and seeing the worst case scenario.  You can’t make the definition more complicated than this.

Fear is incredibly counterproductive because you tend to make what you fear happen in your life.

I’ll give you an example.  Say you have a boyfriend or a girlfriend.  You are scared that they might leave you.  What  happens next?  
Your behaviour will change.  You'll become needy.  You’ll smother.  You’ll cling.  Next thing you know, she or he does not want to be with you anymore.

Your fear has become a self fulfilling prophecy.

Or, you have a business and you’re constantly fearing failure which is not a good way to approach a business endeavour.

You never know what will happen especially and specifically in a business but seeing the worst case scenario won’t push you to make any good decision let alone staying positive when you need to.

So why bother with fear ?

Some of you might say that a little of fear will keep us on our toes and not let us be careless.

Well perhaps there is some truth to it, but not being scared does not mean you are careless.

What you could do is envision the worst case scenario of a situation and it is possible that the outcome is not desirable but it's not the end of the world.

So your fear is not rationalised.  The stoics call this negative visualisation.  You could do this from time to time but not visualise with fear.  Just think of what’s the worst thing that could happen.

Then deal with it accordingly.  To begin with, see what you can do to avoid it and even if does happen, see how bad it actually is and what you can do about it.

There is always a solution and fear cripples us.  One other thing you can do is to look at the future with hope.   A monk whose lectures I like to listen to called it being “Hopey”

Since fear is seeing the future with negative outcomes, being “Hopey” is seeing our future with positive outcomes.

What it will do for you is to reduce the fear and keep you in a positive state of mind to achieve the things you want and therefore reduce the chances of what you fear happening.

Isn’t that amazing ?

So no fear is not useful.  Do not be scared and be HOPEY
