1 - Embrace vulnerability - if you live a fear-based life you’re less likely to have little or no confidence if you feel afraid of others seeing who you are, open up and be more vulnerable.
2 - Admit you have fears - Admitting your fears and identifying what you’re truly afraid of gives you the information you need to overcome them.
3 - Face your fears - Exposing yourself to what you fear is the best way to overcome it, scared of spiders? Go and handle one and see how you feel after.
4 - Think positively - Sure difficult times will come, but it’s best to overcome these by thinking positively.
5 - Reduce your stress - Easier said than done I’m sure, but sometimes you experience fear due to being exhausted, sleep, good food and exercise certainly help reduce stress.
6 - Demonstrate courage - Take time to help people who are in uncomfortable situations, instead of ignoring people in distress, help.
7 - Know failure but press forward - If you fail, learn from it, keep moving forward.
8 - Cope with risk and uncertainty - Conquer fears by learning to deal with life’s uncertainties. If you fear to lose your clients, or employees, figure out what it’ll take to keep them.
9 - Continue to learn - Grow, learn and improve. Take all opportunities to learn new skills. Read books, consume podcasts and videos, the more you know the more you can grow.
10 - Accept your challenges - Stay the course, even the greatest plans can fail, the best option is to have a plan b, c, d and e to make sure you can get through the challenges that can come.
We shouldn’t let fear drive decisions, we shouldn’t let fear have control, the answer is to be positively courageous!
