The #1 Problem people have when it comes to business is Fear Of Losing Money.
Often people don’t take risks because of fear of rejection, judgment, failing, making a mistake, being wrong, losing money or fear of the outcome not being as expected or afraid of how things might turn out.
Either way, you are not alone.
We have all experienced fear at one time or another in our lives and in one form or another.
Fear can be one of the greatest debilitators or teachers depending on how you choose to see and be with it.
Are you listening to mind chatter like I can’t do this, I can’t handle this, I don’t know what to do or what will happen if I do do this?
Then you might make excuses like I’m too tired, I don’t have enough time, I don’t have the money, I don’t have the experience, now is not the right time, etc. for why you can’t do something.
Fear is not the problem; the way you are interpreting and handling it is.
You might look at it as this awful “thing” as if it’s outside of yourself, or caused by someone or something.
Yet when you face your fears by knowing they are your thoughts, you are stepping into life instead of turning your back on it.
Pay attention to your fears.
They are telling you a lot about yourself and why you are where you are, as well as what needs to change for you to move through them and move forward in the direction you would like to go.
You will build confidence in your abilities, decision making, trusting your intuition , and yourself when you take risks.
You will never know unless you take a chance.
What’s the worst that can happen?
You learn something new about yourself, or what works or doesn’t work for you.
When you observe your fears by listening to your thoughts and excuses, and by taking chances you are elevating your thinking, expanding your comfort zone, and increasing your opportunities and confidence.
Many people stay locked in unhappy and unsatisfactory situations that no longer work for them because they are afraid of what will happen if they take a risk.
If you don’t make mistakes or take chances, how will you know what to correct or change, or whether you are heading in the right direction?
The next time you are afraid to try something new, make a decision, or take a risk, remember this
“You have nothing to fear but fear itself”.
You can stay stuck in fear or you can overcome and transform it by taking risks, the choice is yours.
