I was tired of holding myself back. Are you tired of limiting yourself in certain areas – like your work? Today I realized I had been letting fear hold me back. I needed to call a prospective client to arrange our next step – and I had hesitated for weeks.
When I finally called, she said she had been thinking about me and wanted to schedule a workshop. And, since science says my work and your work impacts 1000’s I was holding 1000’s back – by not calling her.
Why did I hesitate? What was in the way of my taking action?
It was simply a belief: “She might not see the value of my work.” Total B.S. = Belief System, and BS – not true.
My belief – your beliefs – are thoughts you keep thinking; they are made-up ideas, your “truth”. They are the software of your brain; installed years ago, reinforced thousands of times by your thinking.
Unless your belief (thought) lifts you up, supports the best version of yourself, it is a LIE. It is fear. The truth = “My work (your work) is valuable; I have results to prove it,” is your freedom.
The way I got to the truth: I acted and then looked at my fear – so it wouldn’t happen again. After I took action, I asked, “What was holding me back?” and wrote until I had the answer. My result = a workshop booked; 100’s who will be helped directly; freedom to be the best version of myself.
Your 2 steps to curing fear: 1. Take action – do the thing you fear – NOW. By acting you overcome your fear. DO IT NOW. Use GIT – “Give It Ten” (10 minutes) to get it done: – Set a timer for 10 minutes – Do what you fear – do the work, take the action – NOW – focus 100% on it – When the timer goes off, re-set it and keep going, work to get it done 2. Recognize your fear – what is it? Is it a situation, person, thing? Write it down = self-awareness. Self-awareness frees you from repeating mistakes that hold you back. NOTE: You may need to reverse the steps; ask about fear, then act; but don’t use this as an excuse to stop.
Is it really that simple? Yes, it is – and taking the smallest step is all it takes. When you ACT you create the meaningful work you know is possible; you impact 1000’s. You also get to a new level of self-confidence, self-esteem and success. What a pay-off!
Get over your fear. Do it now – get it done. “Do the thing you fear most, and the death of fear is certain.” Mark Twain
This is your freedom.
