Fear is a tool that you can use for success.
Megan’s favorite Eleanor Roosevelt quotes –
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.”
“You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
“I believe anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experience behind him.”
Megan was a child who had a lot of fears growing up. Storm clouds, strangers, etc were some of them.
Bear Grylls quote – “Being brave is not the absence of fear. Being brave is having that fear but finding a way through it.”
The entrepreneurial journey is littered with scary things.
YOU deserve all of the success, goodness, joy and richness that await you on the other side of your fears.
Any of those fears that are holding you back from scaling your business are not even close to being as scary as you think they are.
Pinpoint what is holding you back from growing your business?
Think of a couple here – is it a project you’ve wanted to do; are you scared to reach out to someone you want to collaborate with? Recording recipe videos? Posting IG stories?
Picture fear as a big thick brick wall. Visualize it the same way every time no matter what the fear you’re tackling. Now you have 2 choices:
See the wall as impenetrable, be intimidated by it and believe there’s no way around it. Walk away from it totally defeated. OR
Walk up to it, scan it. See it, accept it for what it is. It is a wall that is scary and intimidating. But you don’t walk away from it because you know it’s a big fat liar. It hopes you will walk away because it doesn’t want you to experience the blessings that are waiting for you on the other side.
You’d get a glimpse of what’s on the other side of that wall if it were transparent. Instead of walking away, acknowledge it and then politely tell it you ARE going to the other side. Hop over it or smash it or walk around it. Once you do it once, the next wall won’t be as scary. You’ll be braver. Success, joy, richness will start flowing in your personal life and business in great abundance.
What if the wall is too tall to scale or you can’t smash it because it’s thicker than you thought? Some walls will cause you to fall on your butt or result in failure. Don’t stop! Keep pushing; some walls are more stubborn than others. Shrinking away from fear is not an option. Because you know about the goodness that’s awaiting you!
This week, challenge yourself. What is your specific fear? Do something to stand up to it! Make plans to take a step forward. Then you have to take another step, because you can’t let it win. Make a plan. Stick to it. Write it in your calendar so you have to stick to it.
It’d be sad to leave those good things there and not claim them because of your fears.
It’s the thing that that you know you need to move past in order to be the best version of you that you can
