Fear is one of the biggest reasons why people don’t move on with passion and achieve their most cherished goals and dreams. For most new and established women business owners, their biggest obstacle is fear.
Having a fear of something is common and it is a rare person who lives without fearful feelings of some kind or another. You might be afraid of insects, heights, success, failure, talking to strangers, or making videos :-).
There are certainly some things that we should be fearful of as a matter of survival. It would certainly not be wise to go try sticking your hand in a lion’s mouth, for example. So, fear can be a good thing. However, if fear is holding you back in business there are only two ways of dealing with them.
1. The first option is to let those fears create boundaries that you cannot move beyond.
Remember, the things we focus on expand. If you are constantly telling yourself you cannot do something that is usually fear talking. It becomes your reality and plants you in a place of anxiety and doubt.
2. The second option is to look fear in the face and JUST GO FOR IT! Face your fears head-on and allow them to become opportunities to expand your life. Reading stories of successful individuals can help you gain insight on how they learned to overcome their fears!
Remember to feel fear, anxiousness, and apprehension is 100% normal. What you do about those feelings is what separates successful individuals from unsuccessful individuals. Fear’s biggest sign is paralysis. Let’s begin knocking down the wall of illusion that is holding you back and begin taking action!
Are you ready to just go for it? … Okay, let’s do it!
