Fear: The Stimulus for Business Growth
January 1, 2015
Recently someone asked me " What do you fear in your business?" I said " Not being in a fearful place."
For the last 7 months my motto has been " If I am fearful, then I am in the right place." This has kept me comfortably uncomfortable in my business. We read a lot about over coming fear which might seem that we are all aiming to not have it in our lives.
We need fear.
What are some fears? Fear of rejection, success, failure, losing money, gaining money, not being good enough, perfection, not having enough time, doing too much etc. You know the list. I believe we need fear to grow our business. It is a tool that stretches us and reveals capacities in us that could not have been manifested except when we stepped into our fear and courageously stepped through it.
What is fear?
Just energy. Intense energy yes, but just energy. It does not have a story. We create the story around what it means. We get to decide in every moment if we reset to embracing it and using it as a catalyst for our next great moment.
The next time an opportunity is in front of you....listen to yourself. Is fear rising to the surface? GOOD! You are in the right place. As you step through that fear on the other side is growth, opportunity and being connected to your fullest potential at that moment!
