Ok, so what are you waiting for?
Take the plunge! Call that person you met at the networking event. Publish another blog post. Finish the copy for your website. Accept the invitation to speak on radio. Write that article for the magazine … fill in the blank with whatever it is that you’re not following through on.
Are you scared?
Congratulations! You’ve just identified the pool you need to dive into to reclaim your power and all the success you deserve.
If you pass, however, claiming the water’s too cold or you just don’t feel like swimming today, the fear wins. And you lose.
So how can you make that fear your ally?
Fear is the gatekeeper of your comfort zone
… and it holds the key to your personal growth as well as the growth of your business.
If you’re self-employed, the gatekeeper is always on duty and often triggered. After all, we are the business, so it’s only to be expected that every limiting belief and fear we’ve ever had will at some point rise up, stare us in the face and potentially keep us playing small.
On the other hand when we face the fear and act in spite of it, the comfort zone expands and we grow with it. As we push through perceived limitations, we embrace freedom and become unstoppable forces in our own lives. And it feels so good!
Over to you
Consider making it a practice to do at least one scary thing every day. It doesn’t have to be a big thing, just one small baby step outside your comfort zone towards your ultimate goal.
Every time you take action rather than avoid, you strengthen the muscle, building self-confidence, self-reliance and self-trust. You begin to say “I can” more often than “I can’t” and you gather momentum. And you grow, both as a business owner and as a human being.
What scary thing will you challenge yourself to do today? Please share on the Comments below and let’s see how much we can scare ourselves 🙂
PS: It doesn’t have to be that scary
Sometimes we have powerful drivers in our subconscious mind that sabotage any attempt to venture outside the comfort zone. Tapping is a powerful tool for breaking down the fear, having more fun in your business and opening up to everything that’s possible for you.
