How To Win Over Your Fears

If you really want to do something
you will always find a way.
But if you don't want to do it,
you will almost always find excuses.

The easiest way to combat fear is by facing your fears. Look for positiveapproaches to accomplish your goal. If you want tostart a business, attend a meeting at the Better Business Bureau. Read somenational magazines like "Income Opportunities" or "Spare Time."Start reading the business section of your newspaper. Subscribe to some ezinesthat discuss how to run your own business. Gather some ideasand do a little reading before actually jumping into a business. Surelyyou can find some spare time to read.

Also, begin associating yourself with people who are in their own businessalready. If you're afraid to go out and make new friends, attend localbusiness-related seminars in your community. Start watching televisionshows that are related to business. You'll eventually find people toassociate with who know others and you'll be the part of a new crowd -the motivating ones!

FEAR is always your enemy. Look at it this way: If you never try,FEAR wins by 100%. However, if you do try, FEAR only has a chance ofwinning by 50%. If you needed a place to live and only had $10 to yourname would you allow FEAR to win and make you homeless? No, most of uswould find a job or borrow the money to have a roof over our heads! FEARis the root of failure, depression and lifelong problems. Are you goingto let FEAR ruin your life?

FEAR also will cause you to lose out on many other things in life.If you FEAR the boss at work is going to fire you _ it will naturallybe on your mind day in and day out. It will eventually wear you down andyou will begin making mistakes on the job. You will also get depressedand build up resentments that may have never been there in the first place.Facing FEAR head on is the best way to combat it. If you think the bossis going to fire you _ go up and ask him. It takes guts, but isn't it betterthan putting yourself through many months of agonizing torture? Are youfull of so much FEAR to even ask him because you think it will triggerhim to say "yes" when he might not have been considering it at all? Believeme _ asking a boss "if" they are thinking about firing you will put youin no different position than you are now. In fact _ it will have theopposite effect. The boss will more than likely respect you for yourcandidness and ability to face FEAR head-on.

Is FEAR holding you back from a lot of things? Are you afraid to confrontpeople and tell them how you really feel? Do you smile in their face andtalk about them behind their back? What's so hard about being truthfulbut using tact? Doesn't it get rid of FEAR and solve many problems?

Complaining is also an act that emotionally drains you and goeshand-in-hand with FEAR. In fact, FEAR is normally the root of any complaint.

People don't want to admit their FEAR so they will complain to release sometension. This is a crazy merry-go-round! Instead of complaining, try to findways to solve the problem. Don't let FEAR keep you trapped in the RAT RACE!
