Today, I want to talk to you about something that we all have faced at on time or another…..
What Is Fear?
Fear is a very strong emotion. It can come as a rational or irrational feeling. If you are in a house and it catches fire, you will experience fear due to a real threat of being burned or worse, a rational emotion. On the other hand, if you are afraid to take a chance because you think you will make a mistake, this is a perceived threat not based on anything real, an irrational emotion.
How does this pertain to business?
Fear Of Failure
You decided to start an online business. You’ve learned what you need to do by watching some video training courses, free or paid, or by signing up with a mentor.
Guess what? You now start to get that feeling that you won’t be able to do what you’ve been taught. The fear of failure has stepped in and you have a choice to make. You can either stop and wonder what could have been or go for it and take the leap of faith.
Tell Fear To Take A Hike
Do yourself a favor, go for it. If you fail, don’t worry about it. Learn what didn’t work and don’t repeat it. Every person who has started any business, big or small, has made mistakes at least once. Believe me, I’ve made my share of mistakes but I’ve just picked myself up and started again.
Follow the steps below and you will be able to overcome your fears and become successful.
1. Ask yourself, “What am I afraid of trying?” Make a list
2. Ask yourself, “Why am I afraid of trying this?” Write down the reason(s) next to each item in the list.
3. Tell yourself, “I am going to do it and see what happens.”
Guess what, once you do it the first time, your fear will disappear and you will be able to do it again and again, getting better every time, whether it’s making a video, doing a Periscope broadcast, making a podcast, running a webinar, etc…..
To wrap it up, I just want to say that I believe each and every one of you can do whatever it takes to be successful.
The future is all of ours for the taking, so take your share of it.
