Feel the fear and do it anyway…
How many times have you heard this? I believe that on an intellectual level we all know it, however, it is hard to move forward when you are stuck in the emotions of your fear.
I have been there myself a million times, so believe me I GET IT!! I feel fear most days. You might be feeling fear of not being good enough to ask for that promotion, fear to start that new venture you've been desiring for a while, fear of staying alone forever, fear of not being able to take your business to the next level…fear of... the list goes on.
I think fear is a part of life, however, we can become better at overcoming it. I have learned myself how to do it and I now teach it – it is a great way to keep me accountable ;)
So this is the process I follow and teach my one on one client and it works EVERY TIME:
1. Feel the fear – yes go there. It might feel uncomfortable but when you look at your fear in the eye it loses power over you. You can do this in a meditative state or writing your thoughts.
2. What is the learning – The fear you are feeling is there to teach you something. What do you think that is?
3. Ask yourself what is it that you want to do/feel- Now that you are clear about the fear, ask yourself what is it that you want to feel instead. There is great power in taking your attention to what you want instead of what you don’t want.
4. Focus your attention on fun things, spend time in nature and meditate. When you do this you will raise your vibration to a more relaxed state. From this place, you will have more clarity as to what step to take next.
And from now on start every day asking yourself: What do I want? And why? Bit by bit you are going to start feeling more calm, more optimistic and more clear.
You are in control of your life and your emotions. You just need to make a decision to focus your attention on what you want.
80% of the results you get in life will come from mastering your mindset. Everything! YES! There are techniques and practices that will help you achieve your goals but you need to start by controlling your emotions.
That is why the biggest and most important chunk of my work with my clients when developing their Stand out Personal Brand starts with developing their mindset.
You will only be able to become visible and claim your power if you have the belief that you can achieve it. This new found level of confidence will affect how you communicate, how you dress, the goals you take on and of course the results you get.
If you resonate with this and have been feeling that your fear and self-doubt have been stopping you from achieving your full potential, I would love for you to take a stand for your dreams and take action now.
