TURNING YOUR FEARS INTO BUILDING BLOCKS
If you’re scared, you’re on the right success track!
This may sound familiar- if you’re a woman in business, and you’re attempting to grow, you’re probably doing new things and thinking in ways you’ve never done before. And that’s exciting and it’s scary.
But the problem we face is not the fear itself. It’s how we relate to and deal with the fear!
This is understandable. Fear has the power to destroy success. Indeed, people often dismiss their dreams and goals because of it.
Embrace your fear because it’s not going anywhere. And the more you try to “get rid of it,” the more it will grow and fester. When you acknowledge its presence, you can choose what to do with it.
Accept it, and give it a name, as if it were a person. When you do this, you begin the process of separating yourself from fear.
Make it animate. Talk to it. Ask fear how it can play a role in whatever you’re trying to achieve, and keep talking until you’re clear on what the specific fear is, and why it’s there.
Choose to love it. Once you acknowledge that fear is along for the ride, you are free to love it or hate it. Why not choose to enjoy it, in the same way you still kind of love that annoying family member? Yes, they drive you crazy, but you love them nonetheless. Fear can work the same way. The moment you choose to enjoy it, you’re freed from its controlling grip, and you can learn how to live peacefully with each other.
