How Fear Can Move You Forward (Instead of Holding You Back)

 

Your heart pounds.

Your breathing picks up. You get this tingling sensation at the base of your neck. You may have a knot in your stomach, and the palms of your hands are a little damp.

You may even fight back a few tears.

Ugh. What IS this? What in the world is wrong with you?

Could be that you’re scared.
Could be that you’re excited.

Could be that you’re both.

And if you’re a business owner who’s serious about success, those feelings are probably pretty familiar to you.

Because no matter what they may tell you, no one starts their own business because it’s easy.

And fear is a steady companion on any entrepreneur’s journey. But fear is actually a good thing!

Sometimes it’s your protector, warning you to pay attention to something important that you need to know.

Often, fear means you’re growing.

In fact, if the dream you’re aiming for doesn’t scare you to death, it’s not nearly big enough to hold all of your Being, with all of your power, all of your potential, and all that you have to offer the world.

So, if you’re about to take a big step in your business, your heart’s pounding, and you’ve got a knot in your stomach, while at the same time your self-talk sounds like this….

“Could I really do something like that? Me?”

Then my guess is that you, and your business, are being called up and in to something bigger, better, and completely possible.

Yes. Even for you.

The key is to learn how to recognize the subtle ways that fear creeps into your work, so that you can choose how to respond, rather than react.
