As a new coach it is so easy to caught up in fear. When we don’t know what to say we get frozen at the computer. When we haven’t totally followed a program, we don’t know if it will work for others. So we begin to doubt, and self doubt leads to fear, and fear leads to failure.
There is NOTHING wrong with failure as long as we don’t let it paralyze us. There’s no easy way around it. In order to overcome, we must just DO. And we may fail. Over and over again, but that’s okay because that’s how we learn.
Take a step back and think about what you are afraid of. Is it?
– Fear that you would disappoint?
– Fear that you couldn’t be successful?
– Fear of what people may thing?
You have to conquer these fears not only to grow as a coach, but to also create yoru story of overcoming a challenge that you can share with others to help inspire them.
As One of my favorite authors Jon Gordon says, “the antidote to fear is love”. So instead of the fear of failing, decide to focus on your love of helping people, your love of being on your own journey, your love for your desire to make a difference. If you focus on love, you will cast out fear.
Today I want to encourage you to do the same and build your life, your business, and team with love instead of fear. Remind yourself that if you aren’t building it with love it won’t become all that it can be. Only through love will you create something special, magnificent and compelling. Only through love will you build a masterpiece.
So if you are trying to build a business focus on the love you have of building it rather than the fear of failing at it. Worrying about the outcome and what people think will steal your joy and sabotage your success but loving and appreciating the moment will energize you and enhance your performance.
Whatever you try to build with fear will eventually crumble. Because throughout your business journey you will face many challenges and negative forces that can shift your focus back to fear if you let it. When this happens decide to LOVE ALL OF IT. When you love all of it you will fear none of it.
- Love the struggle because it makes you appreciate your accomplishments.
- Love challenges because they make you stronger.
- Love competition because it makes you better
- Love negative people because they make you more positive.
- Love fear because it makes you courageous.
The secret to life and the greatest success strategy of all is to love all of it and fear none of it.
