I read an article today called “Am I addicted to fear?” by David Neagle
Here’s the important excerpt:
Many people have a common misunderstanding that once they hit a certain point in their business; everything suddenly becomes a bed of roses.
The truth is that every time you change, adapt and grow, you experience fear. It’s a natural part of the process. Remember, your ego sees growth and change as a threat, and therefore creates the illusion of fear to keep you exactly where you are.
As an entrepreneur, you MUST get comfortable being uncomfortable.
So the MOST important thing to remember as you’re going through the terror barrier each time, is that whatever you focus on will grow.
If you give energy to the fear by trying to fight it or figure it out, you will manifest reasons to feel fearful. If you focus on the success, you will manifest opportunities to be successful.
See that line in the middle? That’s my thing! I teach people how to be Comfortable Being Uncomfortable.
AND, I was listening to a webinar with Carol Roth (business advisor and author) and Pam Slim (business coach and author) yesterday. Guess what Carol said at least twice? “You just have to get comfortable being uncomfortable.”
So, what does it all mean??
It means that I am not alone in thinking that this is an insanely valuable skill!
Do you realize how powerful it would be if you could train your brain to keep moving forward in situations where fear would normally stop you?
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could learn that and have an amazing, laugh-filled time doing it??
I know a way…
