FEAR! The number one reason why so many amazing people who crave a bigger and better life stay still and freeze.
Has it got the best of you?
Has it prevented you from exploring other options and kept you in your 9-5 that you’re desperate to break free from?
Has it prevented you from taking some risk or investing in yourself to create the life that you’ve always wanted to lead?
When I first started in property, I was a nervous wreck! I honestly thought I was going through early menopause! When I bought my first property, I used to have a reoccurring dream that it slid down a hill and drifted away into the sea! The funny thing is the house I bought wasn’t even on a hill and it’s nowhere near the sea! I was just that consumed by fear it was causing me to dream about every worse case scenario… even though they were impossible!
It then took me a further 9 months to buy my next property… even though my first property was doing amazingly well and was creating more profit that I’d ever dreamt of. I was still so nervous and apprehensive about repeating the process.
Although I was so scared, I also had my ‘big why’ of my 2 beautiful daughters and my love for them far outweighed my fear. By doing the very thing that I was scared of made me stronger and much more confident. I have now done over 400 property deals, using so many different strategies it’s now become second nature.
This thing called fear causes millions of potential entrepreneurs to end up stuck in their lives and not fulfilling their dreams. When I speak to my clients, they all were apprehensive about making any change, not just by joining a property programme, but by stepping out into the unknown. However, it’s this unknown that has changed so many of their lives. They faced their fears and are now reaping the rewards.
I am a true believer that your success – or lack of- is due to how you handle your fear and if you’re prepared to acknowledge it’s this that is holding you back. To help you understand what it is that’s actually holding you back, try this very simple yet effective technique:
Write a list of your goals
Then write a list of what you fear and why they are holding you back.
By seeing on paper, in your very own handwriting what’s stopping you from reaching your dreams, you’ll have a clearer understanding about how you can overcome these.
When you have the list, visualise the life that overcoming these fears can look like for you and your family. Assume all responsibility for why you are not moving forward and stepping out of your comfort zone. If you want to live a bigger and better life by having more money, time and freedom, you need to face your fears and take a leap of faith!
Every entrepreneur, no matter how big or small will have felt the exact same way as you do now. No business or personal development has been done without someone facing their fears. Fact!
Trust me, you will get to grips with your fears and one by one you will get a handle on them. You were meant to fulfil your dreams so use your fear to fuel the fire within you to reach your dream!
