Ever experienced fear or doubt about your abilities? To the degree you can overcome your insecurities, you will experience freedom to be yourself and reach your full potential as an entrepreneur. The most important thing to understand is that everyone experiences these scary emotions to some degree, regardless of how confident and self-assured people may seem.
Follow these 4 tips to overcome fear and get to that next level in your business goals:
Don’t forget that it’s normal.
When you are fearful or insecure, remind yourself that you’re simply feeling what most other people experience. You are probably doing something that is new for you or that you are excited about. Fear is a normal feeling and an indication that you care about the outcome of what you’re working on.
Fill your calendar
The busier you get, the more confident you are. Never allow too much white space on your calendar and you will not experience fear. Doubt loves the person with lots of time for thinking about himself and stirring up negative feelings.
Do what you are scared to do and watch your confidence grow. Regardless of the results, you will walk away inspired that you did it rather than thinking less of yourself for not taking action.
Go beyond your comfort zone.
Very successful people don’t seek comfort; they seek success and are willing to do what is most uncomfortable. But most of the world is seeking comfort and familiarity, which are traps that cause you to settle for the mediocre. If you want to get to the next level of your business, you’ve got to be comfortable being uncomfortable, exude confidence always, and look good doing it.
