Ready, Set, NO WAIT!
Do you ever feel like that? You’re just about to start, then that little voice in your head pulls the E-break? You’re not alone. The #1 reason most businesses never get off the ground is because of FEAR.
’m not saying you’re a big scaredy cat; fear is so embedded in our subconscious that sometimes we don’t even notice when we let it take the wheel. There isn’t one tried and true trick to overcoming that fear, you just have to make the decision that fear will not rule you. I know how scary that can be, and I’ve let it take over before. But you’re not going to make that mistake, right?
What happens when you let fear drive? You stay small. You don’t make progress, you don’t break through, you don’t experience anything better. So sure, if you want to play safe and stay small, let fear rule you. But I can tell you with absolute certainty that the worst thing that can happen when you put fear in the backseat isn’t as bad as you may think.
I felt fear when starting my business, of course. But this time I didn’t let that fear make the decisions for me. I acknowledged the fear, asked myself what really is the worst thing that can happen? I could fail. Someone could make fun of me. But what’s really so horrible about any of those things? Sure, failing isn’t fun, but what is less fun is laying awake at night wondering what could have been. And yeah, nobody likes being made fun of, but on the other hand, what if you receive more support than you ever imagined?
When I took the leap into entrepreneurship, nothing bad happened. At. All. In fact, I received messages from people I hadn't talked to in years telling me that what I was doing was inspiring and how cool they thought it was.
Me:1 Fear:0. Win!
So what is stopping you from starting your dream biz? Is it fear? If it is, I encourage you to think about what the worst thing is that could happen. What would you do if that fear came true? Would you still be better off?
It is impossible to not experience fear, I still do daily! In fact, every time I hit “send” on a new newsletter fear pops up for a fleeting moment. But I have made the decision to not let fear hold me back. I know that there are so many big things out there for me, and I refuse to let fear stand in my way. And I know that once you make this decision, too, you’ll be enjoying abundance in life and in business. So what are you waiting for? Let’s GO!
Can’t wait to see you on the other side!
