Do one thing every day that scares you.
What is fear and how does it manifest within a business setting? Fear is a response activated by a perceived peril; either involving a risk of imminent danger, a threat to security or an overwhelming concern for a future event. Within the business world, these threats are more likely to be psychological rather than physical. There’s no denying that fear can in fact be helpful in certain situations and indeed help us in times of danger. However, when it comes to business, how you react can determine your success.
Key triggers of fear include: fear of failure, fear of risks, fear of financial problems and fear of the unknown. We are often hesitant to try something new. Why? Well we’re creatures of habit and routine allows us to experience a sense of control and predictability. Therefore, such changes force us out of our comfort zone and into a realm of risk and uncertainty. The key lies in learning to avoid self-sabotaging your business with negative thoughts that often originate from a fear of failure. If you want to succeed, you must be willing to experience failure along the way, as fear and success often exist alongside each other.
Failure is the key to success; each mistake teaches us something.
It is impossible to completely eradicate fear in either personal or business life. It will always exist within some format, however it’s important to work on reducing the grip it has on your life and your decisions. The remedy for fear is a strong belief in yourself, your business and your product. So try not to allow yourself to get sidetracked with those fears and self doubts. Instead try to establish some strategies to help push you into action focusing on the next right step for your business. Not all of the one hundred upcoming decisions, but that immediate one that needs to be considered above all others. For each step you take will push you that bit closer to your overall vision.
Within my own business, I have found that each time the self doubts start to creep in, it is merely moments before I celebrate a big win. So I try to remind myself of this ongoing cycle and push myself beyond the fears, thus forcing myself to focus on the goals ahead. Each time I succeed in achieving those targets, I am delighted I kept pushing through those challenges. As it suggests that those lessons arose in order to lead me to this very moment and so I look toward the future with overwhelming excitement.
Will you choose to push past those fears and pursue a positive pathway throughout your business journey?
