Conquering Your Fear!


Conquering Your Fear!

By Angelica

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. i will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it is gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”  –Frank Herbert

At this point we need to talk about the one thing that holds most people back. Usually, it is not that you don’t know what to do, it is that you are afraid to do it.

If you allow fear to control you then it will rob you off your life. Life is too short to play it safe. In fact, in this new economy we are living in, playing safe is the biggest risk of all.

Anytime you try something new it feels awkward and a little scary at first. Don’t worry; it’s totally natural! Its when you let those feelings get the best of you and you do the ‘safe’ thing by quitting, that fear can hunt you the most.

Let’s look at the illustration of learning to ride a bike. Do you remember when you first learnt how to ride a bike? Do you remember how unnatural it felt, and how scared you were?

What would have happened if you had given in to the fear and quit? You would have never learned to ride a bike! Unfortunately, many people start a business or try to implement a new idea and soon quit because it feels unnatural and scary. Same thing goes with starting an Online Business

Let’s face it. Nobody is used to relying on his or her own productivity to get paid. They are used to jobs where you clock in, put in eight hours and clock out. Production is secondary to simple showing up.

That can be a little scary.

Likewise not many people are used to prospecting. It feels awkward and unnatural at first.

The trick is to push back this feelings and set your sights on the goal. You must learn to step outside of your comfort zone and push yourself. If you don’t, well, quite frankly, you’ll never experience success.

I think I had mentioned in my first blog about olekangel how I started my career as a Real Estate Broker. Having left the Oil and Gas Industry I found myself in a completely new field where I had to have encounter with people, providing professional services in the Real Estate Industry.

Here, I heard the word ‘cold call’ for the first time in my life. I mean this was some many years back anyways.

I couldn’t comprehend calling up some random phone number of someone who I don’t know and didn’t know me too just to introduce my services to them. 

That was very scary at the time. However, I did it and though my first call was awkward and I stammered all through I still did not give up (remember learning to ride a bike).

In fact, there was this certain time that the person i called had to give me a stern warning not to ever dial his number again or else… I was really scared about prospecting people. I could have given up completely then but didn’t.

I did not quit! I never gave up! I did what was necessary and before long I was a pro. It took time and I had to step outside my comfort zone first. You’ll never see any kind of advancement or success in your life unless you are prepared to step outside your comfort zone.

Face your fear. Learn to overcome it and never let it get the better of you!

The fear of the unknown just as you have illustrated with the bicycle riding, but if we don’t give it a trial then we shall never know.
Finally time waits for no one.
Is better to try and regret or succeed than not to try at all..
Nice Article,
Very inspiring,
Well spoken!

Yes Maryam, well spoken by you too! Really if we don’t give it a trial we shall never know, we would only be left with ‘had I known’. I totally agree with you and I really appreciate your contribution. Thanks.
