Something I’ve been thinking of recently.
Is Fear synonymous with Perfectionism?
Fear of screwing it up?
Fear of not getting it right the first time?
Fear of looking like a fool (a usually unjustified concern)?
Fear you’ll launch and sell not one item?
Fear you’ll screw up your job interview and miss out on your dream job?
Are you fearing what others might say and think about your choices?
Does it really matter?
As long as you’re choosing something you’re passionate about, and believe in, by action you can convince yourself.
It’s all about learning along the way.
And acknowledging your fear.
Seth Godin says here to “acknowledge” the fear and shame. Don’t fight it. “I listen to it and do it anyway. And that is where we’re going to make the impact.”
It’s being mindful of it.
And recognising your power to conquer your fears.
What are you scared of most?
Is it really that bad?
Write down three actions you can take to challenge it.
