If you genuinely want to do something, you’ll always find a way.
But if you do not want to do it, you’ll find excuses.
The simplest way to battle fear is by not using excuses. Rather, you have to look for positive approaches to reach your goal. If you want to begin a business, attend a meeting at the Better Business Bureau. Read some national magazines like “Income Opportunities” or “Spare Time”. Begin reading the business section of your newspaper. Gather a few Thoughts and do a bit of reading before really leaping into a business. Certainly, you are able to find some free time to read. Right?
Also, begin associating yourself with individuals who are in their own business already. If you are afraid to go out and make new friends, attend local business-related seminars in your community. Start watching television shows that are related to business. You will sooner or later discover individuals to associate with who know others and you will be the part of a new crowd… the motivating ones!
Fear is the root of failure, depression and lifelong problems. Are you going to let fear ruin your life? Fear also will cause you to lose out on many other things in life. If you fear the boss at work is going to fire you it will of course be on your mind day in and day out. It will finally wear you down and you’ll begin making mistakes on the job.
You’ll also get blue and build up resentments that may have never been there in the first place. Facing fear head on is the best way to combat it. If you think the boss is going to fire you, go up and ask
– him. It takes guts, but isn’t it better than putting yourself through many months of excruciating torture? Are you full of so much fear that you won’t even ask him because you think it will trigger him to say “yes” when he might not have been considering it at all?
Believe me asking a boss “if” they’re thinking about firing you will put you in no different position than you are now. As a matter of fact, it will have the opposite effect. The boss will more than likely respect you for your candidness and ability to face fear head-on.
Is fear holding you back from many things? Are you afraid to confront people and tell them how you really feel? Do you smile in their face and talk about them behind their back? What’s so hard about being truthful but using tact? Doesn’t it get rid of fear and solve many problems?
Individuals do not want to admit their fear so they’ll complain to release some tension. This is a crazy merry-go-round! Rather than complaining, try to find ways to solve the problem.
