Today, I want to talk to you about fear but first I want to do a little exercise. For this exercise, please grab a pen and a paper and write down the one thing that really scares you. It might be making phone calls, cold calling, getting out and networking and all other sorts of things. Whatever it is that scares you, I want you to write that down. What emotion is stirred up when you think about them? I’m pretty sure it will well up emotions of being fearful.
Once you’re done, I want you to ask yourself, “What do I believe to feel fearful about that thing?” You see we get scared because of certain beliefs and most of the time these so-called beliefs are purely made up, they aren’t real. Do you believe that people are going to dislike you? Or they’re going to reject you? Or they’re not going to like your service or your product? Write it down. Pause the video if necessary and start writing it all down. When you’re done I want you to go over your list again. If you’re being honest with yourself, you’ll know that these fears that have stemmed from your beliefs are really not true. I want you to go over it again and say, “This is ridiculous, why am I even thinking that?” When you write it on paper, you’ll realise that it’s just a load of crap and when you say it out loud you’ll sound foolish. People don’t hate you; they don’t even know you in the first place. Think about this, how could people hate you when they don’t know who you are and what you do? Remember that fear has the power to paralyse you. You can ruin a potentially productive day because of fear. You can’t do cold calls, you can’t network and you can’t offer a presentation all because you are fearful.
Next, I want you to write down is what can I now believe? This is the time you’ll change your fear and turn it into something positive. Instead of thinking that people don’t like you, why don’t you reset your mind and start thinking about the people who are actually interested and are looking for your product? When you start changing your mindset, you’ll fee more confident to go out there and allow people to find you. You’ll start to double your efforts in marketing to make it easier for people who need your service to find you. Start believing that you are here for a purpose and have that resolve to deliver it, whatever that may be.
I hope that this exercise has helped you overcome your fear. Turn your fear into something positive and change your mindset about the beliefs that are holding you back.
