There is an epidemic going about. It begins with the letter ‘F’, fear. In the world we live in, change is inevitable. There are always new things to learn and discoveries. We have seen this with some of the great inventions, from the steam trains to the World Wide Web. As habitual creatures, this can cause some discomfort at first, as we do not know what to expect. How it is going to impact our lives. We will lose our jobs? The ailment of FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real) may set in.
Going back to the context of careers and business opportunity, this can sometimes stall progression. It can be making a change, making a movement. Examples are: investing in oneself, investing in a new business, or transitioning into a new career. Questions to ask yourself, next time you feel the fear setting in. What is the end goal? How will it lift and expand your life? This is one thing to get you going. It just takes one first step. Don’t let this thing called fear, which is not real stop you. Here is a challenge, imagine that there is a house of fear at the bottom of your street. Imagine entering the house and there are different rooms to enter, which contains a fear. Visualise opening the door and discovering that the fear is not real; how it was your mind playing tricks. Do you feel much lighter?
I love to hear your thoughts on how the house of fear challenge went. Please share your response in comments.
