How to get from where you are to where you want to be

Fantasized Experiences Appearing Real

“We come this way but once. We can either tiptoe through life and hope that we get to death without being too badly bruised or we can live a full, complete life achieving our goals and realizing our wildest dreams.” Bob Proctor – Self made millionaire, radio and TV personality, and success trainer

We are now nearly all set to embark on our journey to success, fame and glory. When beginning any new venture, project, job or relationship we are going to have to confront our fears. This is just a natural progression one takes. Its usually this fear of the unknown which stops us from taking steps towards our goals. Fortunately for us these fears we face are all usually a construct of our imagination. It could be due to previous bad experiences, being too self aware not wanting to fail and a host of other reasons. Luckily we are in control of what we want to feel and imagine so have the ability to stop the FEAR as well as they are nothing but.

During my journey as an entrepreneur I have faced quite a few of my fears and still have many that I want to overcome. One of them which I still struggle with is Public Speaking. I have now overcome my fear of speaking in front of say 30 odd people. Its when the numbers start to exceed 50 and you are in a large auditorium I still have a problem containing my nerves. When you identify a particular aspect that you have trouble overcoming what I like to do is first to.

1. Identify the fear and the most importantly identify what scares you about it. For me; I fear the audience will think I have no clue what I am talking about and will likely create an incorrect image of who I actually am.

2. Replace the image in mind which scares you, so I have started replicating the times when I feel I am in total control of an audience when I am speaking and I feel the connection with the group.

They key is that you have replace those scary images with its positive opposites. Then repeat until all the fear is gone.

The fact of the matter is that if you want to achieve something extraordinary in life you are going to have take some chances. You have to trust your gut and just go with it. You will be surprised how far you can get with an attitude like that. You will fall along the way but that is how you are going to learn how to pick yourself up. So take your chances today and confront the fears which have been holding you back and start to live the life you have always wanted to.

“If you can’t, you must, and if you must, you can.” Anthony Robbins
