If You Had No Fear, What Would You Do?
The strongest motivator
Fear motivates us where most other motivators (money, love, hunger) will not. Fear is also something that holds us back from the things we really want or need.
Is fear holding you back? What is the object of your fear? How is it keeping you from accomplishing your goals, achieving your desired level of success?
More often than not, our fear is something we create, something inside rather than outside of us. There is no external threat that we are helpless against, it’s fear or the anxiety in anticipation of something that may or may not happen.
Don’t let fear hold you back. The only way to overcome your fear is to “face your monster” head-on. Identify your fear, realize that even if that fear comes true (failure, rejection, whatever), you will survive it, and then just go for it!
If you can do the one thing that scares you most, you will see that you can survive it and in so doing you’ll take away the power of that fear and it will be harmless from that point.
