Make friends with fear
If you knew you could not fail, what would you do?. What stories are you telling yourself that are holding you back?
FEAR = Focused Effort + Action = RESULTS
One of my greatest fears is speaking in front of other people. I wind myself up that I will forget my words, my jokes will bomb, people will throw tomatoes at me. The list goes on. The silly thing is that none of these things have happened and I have often spoken in front of groups of people with great success.
I have been working with the amazing Carrie Cardozo, The Empowerment Priestess. She helped me get out of my own way and take Focused Effort. I approached an adult education centre about delivering my new course – Fix Your Finances. My Action will be turning up and delivering the 8 week programme. The Result is that I faced my fears, designed an 8 week course, signed a contract and arranged a start date.
My next hurdle is to turn my face to face programme into an online programme. That is a work in progress.
- Make an effort to Identify what you are afraid of.
- Get out of your comfort zone.
