Is Fear Stopping You?

I don’t know about you, however, fear has been my #1 enemy on my Business Journey.

Please allow me to share a brief story with you: In 2002, I almost allowed fear to stop me from going back to school to further my early childhood education.  In fact, going back to school to further my education was one of the best decisions that I made in my lifetime. At that time, the local community college was offering free early childhood education through a program called: Child Care Field base (where the instructor came to my home).

A Fearless Business woman, takes risk and is bold in her business endeavors. She is always moving forward, evolving and doing things that she never thought she could do.

A Fearful Business Woman is paralyzed by fear. Her vocabulary is full of the following words: I can’t do it, I’m scared, I need more time, What if? And many other words that feeds her Fear and stops her growth.

Can you see the difference between the two types of Business Women? Which one would you rather be? Whats stopping you from becoming a Fearless Business Woman?

How I Overcame my top Two Fears…

Fear #1-As a child I stuttered and I shied away from speaking in public, however, when I moved my business out of my home; I was forced to host events and speak to my staff of 5 or 6 in a formal weekly meeting. I must say, my palms would sweat every time I had to host a meeting.

To make a long story short, the more that I hosted events or held meetings; I discovered how to communicate effectively.  Now I have meetings every week, I host workshops and I enjoy it! In fact, when I stopped thinking about what others thought of me, I was able to speak my truth and share from my hear.

Furthermore, I discovered that I have a great speakers voice. Moreover, you never know;  that which you fear, may turn out to be one of your greatest assets!

Fear #2 My husband and I bought a home with an in ground pool in July 2006. Within weeks of moving into our home, we invited some friends over for a barbecue. Our friends were in the pool and I was sitting on the edge. My friend’s husband said to me (laughing), ” Why would you buy a home with a pool and you can’t swim?”

He challenged me (in a joking way) and that day I learned how to swim! It took all day, but I did it.

Guess what? It felt so good!!! In fact, I felt as if my soul was released from bondage.
