Fear is a universal human emotion. It is there to serve us and protect us from the “real” dangers of the world.
Every time you come face-to-face with this emotion, you have two choices: You can either face everything and rise, or you can fear everything and run.
Now if you were facing a lion, yes, obey the fear and run.
In business, on the other hand, we must rise about the emotion and take action. There are a lot of genius entrepreneurs who suffer from fear-itis. It’s one of the biggest reasons, they don’t succeed in a big way.
“To many of us sit on the sidelines of fear and doubt, unable to contribute to the world in need of our brilliance.” – Chris Guillebeau
One of the ways that FEAR shows up is … we keep preparing. We feel that we are not ready to execute. There is that urge to take another course, attend that event, read that book.
In this video, we will give you our best tips and strategies for conquering fear to get you into action TODAY!
How to Overcome Fear Right Now
Pain Will Push You Until Your Vision Pulls You
Let’s first consider whether your vision is there, because if it is, you’re going to push yourself outside of your comfort zone. If you have a big “why”, a big vision, and a big desire to achieve more, to do more, to become more, then you will tend to focus your energy on the gain instead of the pain.
Do Something That Scares You Every Day
You have to get outside your comfort zone. This is how you know you are living large… you are excited and scared to death at the same time!
Growing the size of your willpower is so much like training a muscle. You can’t do something super huge day one and expect to maintain that level of activity every day.
It’s kind of like when you go to the gym for the first time in four months and you do a crazy workout and then you cannot move for a week because everything is sore.
Build that hustle muscle. Take little baby steps every single day.
Everyone Has Struggles and Fears
We tend to have this mindset of “this person is successful”, and we sometimes get caught up with believing that it happens overnight and they didn’t have any fears to overcome.
People are recognized in public for years of what they do in private. For years, those little baby steps are going on, then the end result is this amazing life.
Where Your Focus Goes, Energy Flows
What you feed will grow, what you ignore will die.
The secret for us was that we just learned to become relentless. We invested $20,000 into a mastermind last year and it turned out to be one of the best business decisions we ever made in our life.
We were afraid to have kids, and that turned out to be one of the best life decisions we ever made.
Think of a few times in your life when you were scared to death, but you took action anyway and today you’re proud of what you achieved. Are you so proud of yourself right now? Good, marinade your brain in that!
Life Is An Adventure
How can you stretch yourself today? How can you spice it up a notch?
I’ll tell you this .. if you are not living on the edge, you’re taking too much space. Adopt this mantra, “If it scares me, it’s a sign I should do it.”
