I have fears.
Fear of success…Fear of failure…Fear of criticism…Fear of making the wrong decisions…and, the granddaddy of them all – Fear of not being enough.
I wanted to share this truth with you today because there seems to be a huge misconception that fear evaporates when you reach a certain level of success. And, that’s a big fat lie!
The truth is every successful person has fears…many fears. Our success does not come because we have learned to eliminate fear, but we succeed because we have learned to face and push past fears when they come.
Do you feel God stirring up a passion within you to share your gifts with the world, but you’re letting fear stop you from taking that first step?
Is it time to move your business and life to the next level, but you’re allowing fear to keep you stuck in your comfort zone?
My advice to you – Don’t let fear be the roadblock that keeps you from God’s best in your life.
4 Steps To Break Through Your Fears
Fear’s ultimate goal is to paralyze you and keep you from moving forward. Spending too much time trying to examine and eliminate your fears will keep you exactly where you are–stuck and stalled.
If you’re ready to get unstuck and experience big breakthroughs in your business and life, here are four steps you can take today!
STEP ONE: Face The Fear
Yes, right fro the start, I want you to take a good hard look at your fear. Get really familiar with it. Understand and identify it. Give it a name.
Here’s why – Fear is an illusion. It wants you to believe it’s a lot bigger and scarier than it actually is. But, when you pull back the curtain and take off the mask, you realize you have nothing to be afraid of.
STEP TWO: Embrace The Possibilities
When you face your fear, you will indeed look at all the things that could go wrong. But, what about what could go right? What could happen if you steeped out on faith, pushed past your fears and succeeded? How would your life improve? What legacy could you leave for your family? What positive impact could you make in the world?
This is where you take your thoughts away from your fears and instead fix your focus on the destination beyond the fear.
STEP THREE: Act
Instead of trying to hide from the negative, move in the direction of the positive possibilities you identified.
Here’s a powerful truth–Fear is a wimp. It is the only thing that gets smaller the closer you move toward it. Every step you take in the direction of fear makes it shrink even more. So, take steps (even tiny baby steps) towards your new possibilities and by doing so you break through the fear that once stood in your way.
STEP FOUR: Repeat
Remember, success does not come in the absence of fear. In fact, as you approach each new level in your business, fear will show up. Before, it might have stopped you, but now, you know how to break through.
Keep it up. Each time you meet with a new fear, face it, embrace the positive possibilities, and take action. Do it over and over and over again.
BONUS TIP: Share Your Fears
Having someone to support and encourage you as you go through the process of facing your fears is powerful. But, don’t talk to just anyone. I advise you to share your fears with someone you can trust. Someone who will not judge or criticize you. And, most importantly, someone who can help you move past your fears and into action towards your dreams.
