“Anything I’ve ever done that ultimately was worthwhile initially scared me to dead.” Betty Bender
“This isn’t a case of taking a big chance. It’s a matter of giving yourself a big chance.” If you’re not experiencing anxiety or discomfort, the risk you think you’re taking might not be worthy of you. Any problem solved will be immediately replaced by a larger, more complicated one! Progress often masqueraders as trouble.
When people have low self-esteem they protect themselves by not taking risks. When you have high self-esteem, you take chances.
Here are three practical ways to overcome fear and emotional turmoil;
1. Talk to your mentor
He or She will have been in far worse scrapes than you are currently in, and will help you to achieve a sense of perspective on your problem. A problem shared is a problem halved. ( Not meaning shared to Morons!)
2. Know the following: “That which does not kill me, makes me stronger.” Freidrich Nietsche German Philosopher.
3. Push the envelope of your abilities. Place yourself in risky situations.
The objective is to replace fear with passion. “I am increasing my risk and stretching my comfort zone on a daily basis. Risk doesn’t scare me any more…I have replaced fear with Faith. I find the two emotions can’t exist at the same time.” Bruce Whipple
