Yesterday I read an article about our need to have fear.
That constantly striving to be fearless is actually crazy.
And that's true.
We do need to have fear because fear is an instinct thatkeeps us safe.
A natural protection we have developed when there'ssomething REAL to be fearful of.
But as we get older, and it’s certainly true in my case, we becomefearful of things that we don’t need to be frightened of.
Fear takes on a different dimension and it then stops being“survival” fear and becomes fear that holds us back.
We have a fear of failure.
Fear of going outside our comfort zone.
Fear of what others will think of us.
Fear of being visible.
The list goes on. BUT if we want to succeed in business wehave to recognise the good fear from the bad fear.
It won’t stop us being scared by the “good” fear, but wehave to learn to face it and push through.
And the more that youlearn that, the more successful you will become.
And if you are wondering if I am fearful in business? Of course I am. Am I paralysed with fearsomedays? Absolutely.
But am I fearful every day? No, not anymore.
As business owners we have to learn to overcome and facesome fears to grow.
Never believe you have to be totally Fearless, but if fearis holding you back from your dreams then change that today, you will be amazedby how great it will feel and the brilliant results it will bring.
