In today’s video I want to talk about how overcoming your fears in your business can help you grow your business.
Overcoming your fears:
It can be a pretty scary thing venturing into the unknown. Often times when we’re trying to grow our business we’re faced with new sets of challenges. If we’ve never had these challenges presented before then we can sometimes become fearful. What happens is in our mind we have an inner dialogue that can turn against us and make us fear the things we know we have to do in order to succeed. We start thinking about possible outcomes that could cause something to go terribly wrong. Most of this self talk is fear driven, we are scared we’re going to fail, we’re afraid we’re going to fall flat on our face. Many times the result after we do something that scares us is NOWHERE near as bad as we made things up in our head.
So how do you change that? How do you start overcoming your fears? Here are a few tips:
Don’t let the momentum subside. It takes a certain amount of momentum to deal with fear. When you’re faced with setbacks it can be tempting to decide to give up. Stay determined to persevere even when it seems impossible to get past your fear by keeping these pointers in mind:
- Don’t confuse fear with fate. If you’re afraid of failure, you might decide that it is your fate not to start the catering business you’ve always wanted, move away from your hometown or overcome your fear of social interaction. The truth is, you have control of your future. You have the power to determine the path you will take. Resist the temptation to hope things turn out for the best and leave it up to fate.
- Don’t let other people hold you back. Recognize when someone is feeding your fears by telling you you’re inadequate or incapable of changing. Surround yourself with people who want you to overcome your fears and reach your potential.
