Some people say their very worst fear is speaking in public to a large crowd. Others say they are deathly afraid of getting shots in the arm. Still others say that what ties them into knots is asking that special someone out for a first date. A few years ago a TV show helped contestants face their worst fears on Fear Factor.
So what’s your biggest or worst fear? When it comes to your business or the organization you volunteer with – what’s holding you back from becoming all that you want it to be?
Someone once asked this question: “If you could do anything at all without regard to cost or liability, and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that you would succeed, what would you do?”
Let’s turn that on it’s head for a moment and ask it this way; “If you could do anything at all, etc. etc., what would you attempt?”
Do you realize that quite often the fear of your worst fears is all that’s keeping you from moving forward? “I’d lose the weight, cause I know it’s good for my health, but . . .” “I’d give up ____________ (fill in the blank with that habit that’s constantly bringing you down), if only . . .” “I’d begin this new organization that will change the world, but . . .”
Why not look your fears straight in their face, eye-to-eye, and declare that they will not prevail over you nor your life anymore? Today’s the day you can conquer your worst fear and begin to move forward to that bright future you’ve so far only dreamed of.
What’s your next step?
