I believe that fear and lack of focus are the two biggest obstacles that hold people back from getting what they really want…in business and in life. I’ve developed a four-step process to help people overcome fear as described below. Using the acronym FEAR makes these steps easier to remember.
Here’s how to turn FEAR into success:
FOCUS: Begin by getting focused on what you really want. What is your vision? What is your goal? What results do you want? Clarify the desired result. Get clear.
EXPLORE: Notice the warning signals. Notice your resistance. Notice your fear. Use fear as a friendly reminder to stop, be aware and resume control to best avoid failure or loss. Research the resistance.
ASSESS: Research what you discovered in step two. Look at your options and then create an action plan based on your research. Break your goal into small steps. What is your next step? What support could you get?
RESPOND: Choose to say "yes" to your plan or to say "no". Do you agree or disagree with the change you’re facing? If you choose "no" then just go back to step one and repeat the process until you are ready. If you choose "yes" then take action. Expect the best!
