How to Face Your Fears and Overcome Them to Succeed

>> New Program: Learn how to consistently attract your ideal clients and grow your consulting business <<

Hi, it’s Michael Zipursky again and I want to ask you a question – one that can have a profound impact on your life and on your business.  And that question is:

What drives you – what really drives you to do what you’re doing?

over-come-your-fears

Why are you doing it?

As consultants going through our daily lives, working on client projects, prospecting – just working on growing your businesses, you will (like I have before) almost always face uncertainty.

You will stare fear directly in the eye and you will need to make a choice. You will either choose to let fear win and you will hold back taking more action. You will find reasons to delay. You will use any excuse that comes to you and allow it to pull back your progress.

OR…

You can make the other choice: which is to look fear in the eye and say, “Thank you, but no thank you. I’ll keep moving forward and I will keep taking action because that’s what will get the result that I want. That’s what will allow me to be successful, to reach that next level.”

You could be doing – and you can be doing – anything you want. That’s the reality. You’ve chosen to do what you are doing for a reason.

In times like this, when you are facing fear in the eye, ask yourself and remind yourself why you’re doing what you are doing and what (or who) it is that really drives you. Is it your spouse? Children? Is it your parents? Your community? Is it the legacy that you want to leave?

Why are you doing what you’re doing?

You could be doing – and you can be doing – anything you want. That’s the reality. You’ve chosen to do what you are doing for a reason. Maybe it’s not the thing that you should be doing. Maybe you should be doing something else. Maybe you shouldn’t be a consultant.

But I’m going to guess, and hope and I’m going to put my passion and energy and my power into you.

Because I believe that you can be successful.

When you face that fear, call upon that inner drive. Ask yourself right now why are you really doing what you’re doing? If you have a good reason and you feel empowered by that, then take note. Remember it.

You’ve made a commitment to yourself for whatever reason; that reason doesn’t have to serve anyone else, it just needs to serve you.

Moving forward, whenever you face some doubt, whenever you get knocked down (and you surely will – because if you’re don’t, you’re not trying hard enough), remember that there is a reason why you are doing what you are doing.

You have drive.

You’ve made a commitment to yourself for whatever reason; that reason doesn’t have to serve anyone else, it just needs to serve you.

It just needs to give you the power, to give you the energy, motivation, intention – the focus to keep moving forward – to stare fear in the eye and say: “Thank you, but no thank you. I am going to keep taking action. I am going to reach that next level and I am going to be successful.”
