The words ear and hope are frequently regarded to be opposed. This viewpoint, I believe, is founded on the idea that they reflect opposite ways of seeing into the future – the fear factor, as it is frequently referred to, is generally regarded as a negative or pessimistic viewpoint. In contrast, hope is considered to be an optimistic one.
When I worked as a life coach, though, I frequently discovered that clients had worries or anxieties, for which I saw the solution as achieving calmness or a balanced perspective rather than simply hoping. As an example, clients may encounter one or more of the following:
dread of conflict
Fear of making a fool of oneself, as well as fear of failure
apprehension about upsetting others
These kinds of fears can paralyze people or lead to a lack of assertiveness. It can help to employ methods like CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) to help analyze the negative thought patterns going through your head and replace them with balancing statements that help assess how realistic the worries are and what solutions there are for coping with them. This method is usually beneficial for persons looking for answers to deal with negative thoughts and concerns.
