Congratulations on Completing the Fear and Anxiety Assessment
Your Score is: 36 out of 100.
Your overall score is 36. This lower score suggests you have an unusually healthy relationship with fear and anxiety. Not many people do so congratulations! As a result, you are feeling normal levels of anxiety and fear in your life, in proportion to the choices you have made. The only question is then, do you want to make your relationship with fear even more progressive, by tapping into the resource that is this powerful emotion, as a way to go to your next level of accomplishment?
You have a healthy relationship with Fear. You enjoy excitement, life in general and seek out adventure. You like expanding who you are and will continue to grow and learn new things throughout your entire life. Every day is an opportunity to learn something new. You enjoy challenge. You see conflict as a chance to grow, and failure as a chance to learn new fascinating things about yourself and how life works. The arguments you have with your loved ones lead to greater intimacy at the end of every conflict cycle. You may be happy one day and sad the next and that’s fine. Your health is good, nothing to complain about. If you do have an injury, disease or other physical hold back, you’ve certainly done some emotional work around the ailment to make sure that the repression of feelings doesn’t exacerbate it. Sometimes you don’t sleep well but you know things change so fast, it’s likely just temporary, so it’s no big deal.
- The key for you, is to take risks any time you’re ready to go to the next level. Ask yourself then, am I in the mood for fear right now? Ask yourself this every day, and the days you answer yes, go out and do something that scares you.
- It doesn’t have to mean climbing the Eiffel tower using a couple of suction cups! It could just mean having that difficult conversation you’ve been putting off. Skiing a little faster this run. Wearing something that is totally not “you” just to see how it feels.
- You may be drawn to perhaps a gratitude practice, forgiveness practice, or mindfulness practice. All good stuff. This is called building the castle. Be sure though, not to forget about the foundation, which should be a constant maintenance priority.
- Maintaining a strong foundation is called ongoing shadow work. It’s the important, consistent exploration of “what is my relationship with the negative part of life?” And “what dark shadow am I casting that everyone can see, that I can’t see, that if owned would set both me and the world free?”
- You may already know this, but if you deny shadow work, in favor of only building the castle, the castle for which you spend all your resources (time, effort, money), when bad things happen, can collapse. So please, continue to be aware of and work on your shadow.
- Shadow work centers around fear. Beneath jealousy is fear. Beneath anger is fear. Unworthiness, powerlessness, self-loathing, frustration, and more, are all down there and can pop up anytime things aren’t perfect. Within these states, always you’ll find fear. Which is why I recommend a fear practice, as your shadow practice. This is the foundation on which you can build a strong castle that can never collapse.
- Find a way then, to continue cultivating an ongoing, honest, inclusive, considerate relationship with fear, and you will have the same with yourself. Do this, have a fear practice long before your next crisis, and your foundation will only become stronger every day. This will translate into greater strength, laser focus, integrity, better relationships, better sleep, greater productivity, more confidence, clarity to make great decisions, authenticity and more. You will also remain willing to take risks, all which leads to growth and learning.
- Don’t forget, that fear is beneath your relative reality at all times, always affecting your life. Stay aware of its presence, and you will negate its shadow and instead tap into its percolating energy, wisdom and aliveness any time you like.
