You Are A Fearless Female

What does it mean to be fearless?

Does it mean you are not scared of the massive four-centimetre spider creeping in the corner of your room, or you have no hesitation jumping 12,000 ft out of plane for the thrill or maybe you are comfortable walking into a networking event solo?

According to Collins dictionary, to be fearless is to be: without fear; not afraid; brave; intrepid.

And, according to Fearless Females (FF) we are going to have to agree to disagree (Well not completely disagree, just make some minor amendments and be sure to let Collins know).

We believe, to be fearless is;

  • To be aware of your own weaknesses and learning how to disarm them
  • It’s not about having no fear but embracing fear and using it as an energy to move forward
  • Owning who you are and realising these weaknesses do not hold you back and you will continue to kick goals!

Now I know what you are thinking, how does this make me a fearless female?

We are all riding the same wave. We are challenged every day in the decisions we make and our actions which follow. And when you think you have walked out of a situation, you are certain to walk into another at some point which may make you feel uncomfortable, anxious, or afraid.

Along with those emotions there is something else inside of you… adrenaline, passion and hope. The hope you can conquer what is ahead of you with the feeling of accomplishment in arms reach. If you can conquer something you are afraid of, you will be empowered and even happier you put yourself out there.

So, guess what? Fearlessness is inside you, waiting to show everyone you’ve got this and be confident in who you are and what you can do.

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, “I will try again tomorrow."

How can you channel your FF?

  1. Acknowledge your fears and understand this is your body’s reaction to warn and protect, not to scare and prevent. Understand your fear might be based on biology, like yikes that is a big ass snake, or from past experiences which have scared you.
  2. It’s easy to get lost in your own thoughts and down the rabbit hole of doubt and questioning. You do not have to listen to your inner mean girl. Go tell her to sit this one out. Because often she has things wrong or blown out of proportion. You must not forget to be kind to yourself.
  3. There is no better antidote to fear than self-confidence, the more confident you are about your ability to handle what scares you, the more secure you feel. Getting the facts, knowledge and gaining experience minimises the intensity of fear by making things seem less scary and more preventable.

It’s time to grab fear by the reins and channel your inner fearless female. You’ve got this.
