Week 24 – Fear

Good morning Readers and welcome!

How many of you are paralysed by fear?  Fear of rejection, fear of failure and even fear of success (yes, this is a real fear).  Fear is something that cannot be rationalised or explained away.  It is an unwanted and useless emotion that has no place in our lives and is a big time-waster!

If you are fearful, then you are not alone.

What to do about it?  Well that’s the million dollar question.  There are thousands of quotes on the internet about fear.  Here are a couple that I really like:

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.”
Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Personally, I am fearful, no terrified of rejection and also of failure.   It is something I have to work hard on every single day and it affects so many things especially marketing.  What my marketing mentor has taught me is this:  “What right do you have not to tell people about what you do and what you can offer them – you will be making their lives easier.  What is the worst that can happen?”

Mantra for the day:  I choose not to be fearful.  Fear has no place in my life.  What is the worst that can happen?

I would really love some feedback so please leave your comment in the space provided below.

“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
Marie Curie

See you on line,
