Everyone I have ever talked to that is an entrepreneur has had to come face to face with their fears. I have had to as well. I want to share with you some of the techniques that I have used to face them. The first step is not to be in denial. You have fears even if you don’t readily acknowledge them. They sometimes take the form of that chatter in the back of your head that says you can’t do it.
Fear is such a huge issue preventing people from becoming successful entrepreneurs. I have heard from many Business Owners who attend every training, webniar, coaching, and read all the books they can However only 2-5% of people will actually go out and apply the knowledge they have learned to improve their businesses. In My experencie the rest are paralyzed by fear.
Here are some of the techniques I have used:
Think about what you want
When you find yourself spinning the wheels in your mind over and again about your worst case scenario, turn it around and focus on what you want. Visualize yourself getting what you want. See the new house. See yourself talking to the interested person as they become a part of your business. You get what you focus on.
Change the voice
When you hear yourself telling yourself that you’re not good enough – you’re going to fail. Find ways to encourage yourself and keep going. You can use a journal when you find yourself having the same fear over and over again. Write down how you plan to overcome that fear and read it aloud whenever you feel it coming back.
Voice fears to a trusted friend or associate
Hopefully, you have been able to find some level of support from at least one other entrepreneur. You need some kind of support network from your team, upline, or corporate that you can talk to. Some people may tell you it is silly, you could even believe that you’re not good enough. However, don’t go looking for support from all those people who doubted you and told you it was crazy to go out on your own. They will never understand the entrepreneur.
Have a personal development library
I draw tremendous support from my library. It is not just filled with how-to resources, but also stories of others who conquered their fears. I couldn’t begin to list the many sources I have, but if you email me I can recommend something based on your own description of your circumstances.
