Most of us never get to do the things we truly want to do in life because fear holds us back. This is especially damaging in business, where the results of this fear can be seen in many ways. But how can we turn powerful fear into power itself?
In this week’s 15 Minutes To Action episode, Nick talks you through the ways in which you can transform fear into a force for positivity.
- Fear is our brain’s way of trying to keep us safe. It’s a perfectly natural physiological response, and in many ways can be helpful in terms of survival. But we must always recognise the places in which we must seek mastery of it.
- We can only ever influence the present and the future. Do not be influenced by events of the past, and concentrate on the things we can control.
- Seek to surround yourself with positive influence. Fear and negativity are everywhere in our society, and by osmosis, our association with it can grow our fears.
- We can use meta-conditioning to help us through hesitation. Count backwards from 5, and then just do whatever it is that has caused you to hesitate.
‘Repetition is the route to mastery’
‘Gratitude is the antidote to fear’
’The moment that you feel you are hesitating, it’s because fear has popped its head up’
‘Fear does actually serve you, It’s when it becomes overwhelming that it doesn’t’
