How To Live A More Fearless Life

By CysterWigs Contributor

Your life would be much more exciting and enjoyable if you could be a little more courageous.

Do you feel this way?

Do you wonder how you could muster the courage to just accomplish everyday things? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Many of us struggle with fear in our day-to-day lives.

We remain in dysfunctional relationships, go to work at jobs we hate, and we avoid pursuing our dreams. Why? The culprit is fear, crippling and paralyzing fear.

What is fear exactly? The Oxford dictionary has a simple definition of the word fear. Fear is “an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm.”

Motivational speaker Les Brown once said, “Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.” So, how do you live a fearless life in a world where there is so much to make us afraid? Well, let me show you the way.

Be a warrior, not a worrier

A warrior does not wait for the war to begin preparing for battle. You train for combat in times of peace. It is a good idea to start teaching your mind to be fearless before you have to face a fearful situation. A worrier is one who wastes precious time and energy meditating on things they cannot change.

For example, you cannot control what people think about you so don’t worry about it. Be a warrior and have a plan for dealing with your fears before they sneak up on you. A well-known saying is that “courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph of it.”

Train your mind

How do you train your mind to be fearless? You need to rid it of negative thought patterns that say “you can’t do that”, or “you’ll never be good enough.” If you have no one to encourage you, my friend, I urge you to begin to encourage yourself.

Say positive things to yourself and give your inner warrior some positive affirmation. If you are a worrier, you might do a lot of meditating. If not, give it a try. When you meditate, choose to focus on the positive. This will do wonders for your self-esteem.

Distract yourself with something fun

For a chronic worrier, it is easy to pass an entire day obsessing about a problem. I’ve been there. There’s something that can give chronic worriers a little bit of relief. That thing is fun. Do something that you truly enjoy doing or try something new. You can even teach yourself a new skill or take up a new hobby. You may want to learn how to make a certain craft or learn a different language. The self-confidence you will gain from educating yourself will be remarkable.

Take care of your vessel

Research shows a well-balanced diet and regular exercise is good for your health. It can do wonders for both your physical and mental health.

As the saying goes, “you are what you eat.” It is right in the sense that if you eat junk all the time, you’ll begin to feel like junk. So, make good choices.

Exercise enhances your mood and gives you the benefit of a fantastic physique. So, take a walk or join a gym. This step alone can increase your sense of accomplishment. You will also experience a boost in your confidence.

Focus on the possibilities and positive outcomes

Focus on the positive outcomes. Rather than thinking about every little thing that can go wrong, consider what can go right. Think about what you can learn.

Switching up your outlook can help you get excited about new possibilities. Then you can be on your way to living your best life—a fearless life. You can add more excitement to your life if you allow yourself to experience something unusual each day!

View fear as a challenge

Think of fear as the stepping stone to something great. If you can get yourself to take action even while you are afraid, you’ve taken a step towards a more fulfilling life. Of course, it makes sense to challenge yourself to do things that can actually improve your life.

You can live a fearless life and experience many more rewarding experiences. Use your fears to propel you towards your dreams.

Start today by doing something you’ve always wanted to do but didn’t quite have the courage. Relax and do it. Prove to yourself that you can overcome that critical inner voice and accomplish anything.

Order modification request from a client:

“Initially, I ordered 1 x of Jon Renau Zara (Large) in 8RH14 and 1 x of Jon Renau Zara (Large) in 8/32. I would like instead to change my order to 2 x of Jon Renau’s Zara (Large) in 8/32. After viewing more videos about 8/32, I realized that this will now be my go-to color!”

Are there any styles similar to the discontinued Statement Piece by Raquel Welch?

Statement Piece by Raquel Welch is such a gorgeous style! It’s so sad she’s been discontinued, we do have some amazing similar styles though! I’ve included some suggestions below:

Alessandra by Jon Renau

Intoxicating Spice by BelleTress

**Time to state the obvious, ugly truth: Please keep in mind that these styles/shade suggestions are just recommendations from us here at Cysterwigs! We are in no way, shape, or form pushing you to purchase a certain style or color. Simply giving our suggestions. (Which we LOVE btw!) Any time you purchase a wig without seeing it in person first or trying it on, you are taking a risk.

How to revitalize deflated permatease

What you’ll need:

a virgin toothbrush with firm bristles

holding spray (if your wig is synthetic, make sure it’s synthetic safe!)

a styrofoam head

T-pins

sectioning clips or bobby pins

wide-toothed comb

a small pair of sharp scissors

1. Use T-pins to pin the wig right-side-in (so the hair is facing you, not the inside of the cap) on the styrofoam head. I generally put t-pins at the nape, forehead, ear tabs, and crown. Make sure wig is nice and secure before moving on to step 2.

2. Use the wide-toothed comb to gently brush the hair back, directly off the face, to best expose any wefts on the top of the head and / or crown that you want to fluff up.

3. Use sectioning clips or bobby pins to separate the individual wefts.

4. Look on the underside of the weft, near the bottom, where it is sewn into the cap. This is where the permatease lives! Moving in small horizontal strokes, take the virgin toothbrush and “saw” back and forth with gentle pressure. This will help fluff up the permatease again.

5. Continue throughout the areas of the cap that you want to fluff up.

NOTE: It’s okay if it seems like you are fluffing things too much. You can always tame things back down at the end. “More is better” is generally the way to go when you do this.

6. Flip the wig upside-down and spritz with the hair spray. Allow to dry.

7. Remove from styrohead. Now that everything is nice and fluffy, use your fingers to style the wig as you want it to look.

8. Trim any obnoxious fly-aways with the scissors. (Carefully.)

That’s it!

This technique works particularly well with Rene of Paris and Noriko wigs. I use it on my Amal and Cameron wigs to squeak a few more months out of them, since (for example) the biggest issues with ROP wigs tend to be permatease failure issues and not the fibers getting frizzy. Give this a whirl and see if it helps you too! 🙂
