Firing Your Fear Instead of You Getting Fired

Thursday, August 20th, 2009

There is something intoxicating about fear. We all face it every single day. We face the fear that the people we encounter will instinctively judge us because of how we look. We face the fear of making a poor first impression. We face the fear that we will not, at every moment, be our best and that this will somehow cause us to fail.

All of this fear can choke us, stopping us in our tracks. We intellectually know that we shouldn’t let it. But somehow, it sneaks in and can strangle the creativity in our lives.

A Catalog of Some Common Excuses – Part III

8. No One Will Help Me
This excuse really saddens me because there’s no truth in it whatsoever. The fact is that the world is filled with people who would jump at the chance to help you with whatever you’d like to create.

What we are experiencing today is the culmination of billions of years of ever-accelerating development.

Why does evolution accelerate? The answer lies in the fact that new evolutionary breakthroughs often facilitate future advances. Multicellular organisms, sexual reproduction, and the emergence of nervous systems have each done their part to hasten the pace of evolutionary change. Now, with the emergence of human beings, two new features are speeding development yet further.

Face The Fear And Jump Into The Void

“If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been.” Robert H. Schuller, Entrepreneur

How often have you come up with an amazing idea for a new business, an invention or had a dream of how you’d like your life to be… yet within minutes, your vision has been blown apart by fear and anxiety. Questions flood into your conscious mind so quickly you’re thinking about the next reason why this will never happen before you’ve even examined the first. Thoughts such as:

  • I’d never find the money to do that
  • No one will believe in me
  • What if it fails?
