At the bottom of this post, I am sharing my most exciting event of all coming up next month. Don’t miss it! Now for my post...
5 POWERFUL STEPS TO FREE YOU FROM YOUR FEARS!
Regardless of how successful you are, you have fear. Why? Because you are human. Yet, the difference between someone that reaches their dreams and someone that doesn’t is that one has the willingness to face and walk through their fears to get to the sweet side of accomplishment. Fear can be gripping and often hold you back from living a limitless existence.
In my practice as a homeopathic physician and strategic coach, I find that fear is the one emotion that paralyzes people the most. And when you make major life decisions from a place of fear rather than true choice, you will often find yourself regretting your decision later or yearning for something much more satisfying.
Have you stayed in a career out of fear, even though you were miserable? Have you settled in relationships because you were afraid to reach out for what you truly deserve? If so, it’s time to stop being hard on yourself and take this opportunity to change these behaviors once and for all.
I am sharing 5 powerful practices to unleash you from those shackles of fear so that you can live the full and abundant life you are meant to live. You can also find these practices and much more in my new best selling book, Blast Off!
1) Make a list of all your fears on a blank sheet of paper. Then, on another sheet, write the total opposite statement.
For instance, “ I am afraid of failure.” Your opposite statement might be, “ I know that whatever happens, I will find a solution that will bring me success.”
Now discard the list of your fears and read your opposite positive list out loud every single day. Keep it with you to read whenever your fear starts creeping up to give yourself a strong dose of courage. I call this Flip-Switching.
2) Team up with a supportive friend. The power of two is bulletproof. Share your goal with a good friend and make a commitment to one another that you will reach it no matter what. (Make sure you choose a friend that is positive and 100% on your side. Choosing someone that is negative, pessimistic or critical will be detrimental in your efforts to succeed.) Meet regularly to work on your goals and call one another when you need a cheerleader.
3) Write your Big Picture Vision. This is your pot of gold at the end of your rainbow. It encompasses your desired big-picture goals in any and all areas of your life. It is the ultimate, most beautiful and satisfying end-result you could ever imagine. Write a story about your Big Picture Vision in the present tense, as if it is already a reality. This helps to activate your goal and invite it into your life right this very moment. Then read your BPV out loud every single day. Visualize and feel this vision happening right this very moment. This is one of the success secrets of Olympic athletes. As you visualize and literally feel your dream happening in your body, the same brain waves are firing as if you were literally in action. The more you practice this, the more natural and real it will become.
4) Break your big goals into small bite-size baby steps. I call them Mini Feats. These are successive small accomplishments that add up to larger and greater achievements. Your big goals may feel daunting or overwhelming, but if you break them down to small action steps, they are much easier to swallow. You will be surprised because they add up fast and you’re your Big Picture Vision will become a reality before you know it! The more Mini Feats you take, the more confident you will become.
5) Take action. You have talked about it, dreamed about it, analyzed your decision to death, but are you taking action? I am sorry to tell you, but it is all fantasy until you take the thoughts out of your brain and put them into action. The good news is that we make the action WAY more challenging and scary in our thoughts than it will be in reality. And, the more forward movement you take, the more confident you will become. With each small step your fear will begin to melt away just like the Wicked Witch of the West!
I will leave you with this thought. What would you be doing in your life right now if you had no fear? Close your eyes for a moment and imagine what that would look and feel like. If you just experienced a glimpse of freedom and wide-open spaces, hold onto it. Your blast off is just through this door…
