Overcome Your Fears and Go For It!
Today’s message is about overcoming fears and just going for it whether in your home business or in your personal life. Sometimes things happen in life that cause you to be afraid and you can’t let that get the best of you.
In this video I’m on a one-man roller coaster going up a mountainside in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, and once you get to the top, it’s a free-fall to the bottom and you can go really fast. There’s a little hand-brake, but I can’t say I had full faith in it, or that I had much more faith in the narrow track I was on.
I was a little afraid, more than a little afraid, to go down that mountainside, but I faced that fear anyway.
VIDEO: Overcome Your Fears and Go For It!
The message today, is that in business you will find that you have different fears: fear of failure, fear of being rejected, fear of doing it wrong or fear of making mistakes.
We all face fears in life. The most successful people, whether you are talking about life in general or even a home business, separate themselves and achieve success because they are willing to overcome their fears and take action.
To step forward despite their fears.
They look at an obstacle and power through it.
If you don’t step forward despite your fears, you are going to miss out on so much in life. There are so many things for us to experience and explore in life, whether for business or personal. When you go for it, you’re not going to have regrets, but if you hold back and let fear take over, you will certainly have regrets in life.
You are much more likely to experience regrets if you do not take action, then if you do take action. In this image on the right, I faced another fear and got on a mountain alpine slide. We took a chairlift to the top of the mountain, then grabbed one of these little one-man (one-woman) sleds and went zipping and zooming down the mountain. The handle I’m holding is a brake (boy, was I thankful for that!!), and the ride down was a little scary, but a whole lot of fun.
So don’t be afraid. Wait, scratch that. I can’t tell you “not” to be afraid. It is normal to have fears, but the lesson is to overcome those fears. Fear does not come from God. Know that life will be much richer and more fulfilling when you overcome your fears and forge ahead. Just persist and pursue your passions. Go for it in life! You will be so glad you did.
