Banish your fears

Banish your fears.
This is the biggest obstacle for most people – self-doubt and fear of failure.

How can you face it or banish it? Here’s how …

  • First, acknowledge it rather than ignoring or denying it.
  • Second, write it down, to externalize it.
  • Third, feel it, and be OK with having it.
  • Fourth, ask yourself, “What’s the worst that can happen?” Usually it’s not catastrophic.
  • Fifth, prepare yourself for doing it anyway, and then do it.
  • Take small steps, as tiny as possible, and forget about what might happen — focus on what actually is happening, right now.
  • And celebrate your success, no matter how small.

    You’d once said to me: ‘Every fear is overcome by confrontation’, from that day on I actually started facing all my stupid fears and today I can proudly say that there are a very few things that I actually fear.. Thanks.. 🙂
