How to Overcome Fears and Anxiety

Your Online Guide for Getting Unstuck and Living the Life You Want to Live
By Molly Gordon, MCC

Of all base passions, fear is the most accursed.
William Shakespeare

Chances are that you are reading this page because you know that fears keeps you stuck in at least part of your life, part of the time. As a coach, I know that fear is responsible for much, if not most, frustration and failure. When my clients learn to work with and overcome their fears and anxiety, they step into a world of virtually unlimited possibility and satisfaction. I love witnessing the transformation that occurs when fear and anxiety stop running the show.

This guide outlines four principles that have freed dozens of my clients and hundreds of readers of my newsletter from crippling fear. Applying these principles will empower you to understand fears and anxiety and to choose how you respond to them, creating a space for greater meaning and prosperity in your life.

I hope you'll share your experiences with me by emailing your personal stories about overcoming fears and anxiety and how you set yourself free.

Molly Gordon, MCC

How to Use This Guide

You'll get the most value from this guide if you follow these recommendations:

  1. Read one principle at a time, re-reading it as needed until you feel clear about the principle.
  2. Do the exercise in each section before moving on to the next step. It will deepen your learning if you keep a written record of the exercises.
  3. Gremlins are the natural allies of fear and anxiety. You can spot a gremlin by listening for critical, sarcastic and skeptical inner commentary. Notice what your gremlins are saying to you as you read and work the exercises. Jot down their most common comments. Acknowledge these and choose to move forward anyway.
  4. You can deepen your understanding and develop your facility at applying these principles by keeping a Getting Free from Fear journal. Make a commitment to yourself to journal every day for 21 days. Each day note how fear showed up, identifying the type of fear (Principle 3), exploring how you may have amplified it (Principles 1 and 3), recording how it shows up in your body (Principle 2) and naming ways to move through it (Principle 4). You can download and print this worksheet to support your progress.
  5. Have faith. Call on whatever form of Higher Power you believe in, asking for insight, support, and grace to overcome your fears and anxiety.
  6. Practice. The way you respond to fear is the result of billions of internal messages (you say 50,000 things to yourself every day of your life!). It will take some time and some repetition to shift your patterns. Be patient, be persistent. You will succeed.
