The antidote to fear as an Entrepreneur
August 2nd, 2012
The other day I tossed out a question to you, asking you
where you are stuck in your business. There were a few
common threads, which I wasn’t surprised to see.
When you’ve been helping people build their online business
as long as I have, you begin to notice some underlying
There was one common underlying theme that I saw and it’s
something that we’ve all faced at one time or another, and
it can be the difference between never finding success in
your life and moving into a lifestyle beyond your wildest
A lot of you wrote in mentioning that fear was holding you
back. It showed its ugly head in a few different ways, yet
at the heart of the matter it was the chain that was keeping
people feeling “tied up”.
Fear can rear its head as a feeling of being out of
control, a feeling of not having enough (time, money,
resources, etc.), and even as a lack of direction, because
you don’t believe you’re worthwhile.
It’s important to simply recognize that at times we each get
fearful, and that by taking a few simple steps you can turn
fear on its head and move towards the success you deserve.
Here’s a four step plan that is proven to work to conquer
1. Turn off the news. Go on a news fast…by giving up the
news for a couple weeks. Rather than get caught up in the
drama of other people far away, focus on what’s happening in
your immediate life. This simple act alone can feel
incredibly empowering and the funny thing is – other people
will still tell you the news. Try it and see.
2. Block out some “you” time. A sign of a true success is
someone who thinks and acts independently. Often though, we
get so caught up in life that we forget to have time to
ourselves to actually think without interruption. Use your
extra time away from the news to gain some perspective and
focus on your goals.
When I first quit my corporate job and back in the beginning
days of the great recession, the most important part of my
day was going on a walk to “get my head in the right place
and eliminate fear”. Go on a walk, clear your head, and
focus on creating what you want.
3. Take small steps every day towards your goals.
One of the most powerful ways to conquer any fear is to simply
begin to move past it. Bite the bullet and start moving
forward anyway. Replacing any self talk about how “I’ll do
that tomorrow” with “I’ll do that NOW” can be the biggest
difference maker between success and failure…
Even as you make mistakes, you’ll correct yourself faster,
and get to where you’re going faster…
4. Acknowledge the fear and give thanks for it. The biggest
secret to conquering your fear is to simply acknowledge it,
and even give thanks for it. It’s a funny thing – by simple
acknowledging and facing up to your fear, and then taking
action to move past it, you’ll feel 100 times better. Most
times you realise that what you thought was a “big fat hairy
deal” actually wasn’t such a big deal after all.
These principles are just a few of the proven, powerful
principles that successful entrepreneurs everywhere use to
grow their online businesses. Often, the most powerful
thing you can ask for is an outside perspective to take
proven business principles and know exactly how to apply
them to your particular situation.
