We're living in interesting times.
Many (many) of us struggle to understand what 'it' all means at times. (Life, that is.)
The ups. The downs. The inconsistencies.
One minute, you want to conquer the world, the next minute you want to start a completely new career living the laptop lifestyle and making 'six figures' online.
If you've had these thoughts, you're not alone.
Far from it.
I've been there and I get it 110%.
Shouldn't I be driven and focused? Shouldn't I just tap into 'my why' like all of these so-called 'Leadership Experts' are telling me to?
After some internal questioning (and sleepless nights), I realised it wasn't because I was unfocused, undisciplined or hopeless.
It was FEAR.
Michael Gerber, the author of The E-Myth Revisited, knew it way back in 1986 where he wrote about it. And, Napoleon Hill, in his 1937 classic, Think and Grow Rich, did too.
We strive for growth, and yet when the growth starts to happen, we inevitably get uncomfortable and naturally shrink to escape.
But do you really want to shrink?
Most humans are designed to grow.
And if you're reading this, I'm guessing you're one of them.
Which means, instead of shying away from the fear, I thought I'd take the time today to share what I found is the best way to deal with this fear.
Not to remove it (impossible) but instead, to navigate it.
There are three things that will help you get to where you want to go in life:
1. Courage - to go after it (even when you're uncertain of the outcome)
2. Competence - learning the skills you need to learn to win
3. Confidence - to do it again and again without fear rearing its ugly head so frequently
When you start to grow in the areas that count, you start to remove the fear.
Because you know you can handle it.
Fear only ever exists when you haven't previously prepared for the challenge ahead.
The problem is, a lot of us just inherently want to 'know' the answers before first having learned the lessons.
To skip step 1 and 2, and just have the confidence.
I wish it worked that way....(I really do)
But it doesn't.
I've since learned (and am still learning) that it's a fine balancing act between pushing hard to get what you want, while not forgetting the path takes time for a reason and sometimes less is more.
Which is why I'm so dedicated to learning, teaching and mastering the fundamentals.
I didn't want to attempt to build a 100 story skyscraper, in 3ft of loose sand.
The deeper the foundation, the more solid the building stands.
