Today is going to be scary. You are going to face a sad reality that is human nature. This reality faces us every day and we often cower in fear, ignore it, hope it will go away, or want somebody else to do it. This reality is also often the key to what is holding us back in life. It is why we are not rich, what we don’t have enough customers, and why we are not in shape. This reality makes us sabotage our own success. This reality is fear itself.
We often fear and avoid doing the things in business and in life that are the very things that will get us ahead. They are the things you dread. The things you do last in the day or maybe leave for tomorrow. They are the things that require us to put ourselves out there and make us feel vulnerable. They cause inaction. They makes us freeze.
We already know what they are. We know that we should do them. We know that they are important. We just don’t do them. Within you, you already have a path to success. It comes with that uneasy feeling in your stomach. It challenges you. You must move past it. It is never going to go away. Use it to lead you into action.
Maybe it is getting on the phone and making that sales call for the third time to a prospect. Maybe it is having an uncomfortable conversation with an employee or even a spouse. Maybe it is cutting ties with somebody or something that is holding you back. Whatever it is, it is what you need to do NOW. You know that once you do it you will feel much better. You KNOW that it is the right thing to do and yet you stall.
Draw a line in the sand today that you will no longer be controlled by fear but rather run towards it like a firefighter entering a burning building. Fear will be your guide to success. That tasks you dread will be the very first things you do today and every day going forward. Leave your favorite tasks as a treat later in the day. You will get a ton more done and move much quicker this way. If something is on your mind and bothering you, confront it. Don’t let it build up and sabotage you any further.
You are not a victim. You are in control of your destiny. Your future is not determined by fate but rather by your actions. You are responsible for your success. Likewise, you must look in the mirror when you fail. You cannot blame the competition, the government, and employee. You are in complete control. The more you face your fear, the better you feel. The better you feel, the more you get done. The more you get done, the more you succeed.
Stop reading this, go do that one thing you need to get done and are dreading, and get on with life.
