How To Overcome Your Fear
I think there’s lots of this stuff floating around lately.
Fear can be paralyzing and debilitating. In the business world, fear is the enemy. Fear is the one thing that stands between you and your most successful future.
That’s it… fear.
The most successful organizations in history were created by people who pushed past the fear, stared down the risk and took a running leap of faith in their own ideas. Google. Microsoft. Nike. Walmart. Even the United States of America. All built by courageous leaders who pushed past their fears in the name of something greater.
Is fear the only thing standing between you and your dreams?
Here are three questions to ask yourself as you prepare to push past your fear:
What does success look like to me?
Take a few minutes and think about what your life would look like if you had the courage to push past your fears. Write a Vision Narrative and use that story of your future life to clearly define what it is you want.
What really is stopping me?
Once you stop and really understand what your successful life looks like, you may be surprised to see that there is little standing between you and your success, other than fear. What are the barriers between you and your future life of success?
What are the steps to achieve that success?
Develop a simple Life Plan. List the incremental steps required to achieve your goals. Set deadlines and add those steps to your calendar.
Question: What are your fears? What is standing between you and your greatest success? Is fear the only thing standing between you and your dreams?
