Don't Let Fear Keep You From Being Successful


For some reason, our minds lead us to think that the familiar is usually the best way to live.

It's crazy, isn't it? Even though we're not happy with our situation, our natural tendency is to prefer the way things are over what we can make it.

We don't like being uncomfortable. Some people call it being pushed outside our "comfort zone."

Here's the way we look at it...

In today's world, we have the tools, resources, and education right at our fingertips to accomplish anything.

And with the way the "corporate world" is looking, it seems to be a bigger risk to live according to your boss's rules. Not to mention the threat of layoffs and downsizing.

When you look at it, that job security that so many people search for isn't so secure after all!

So don't let your fear of risk hold you back. Because you're probably not really risking that much to try and achieve your goals and dreams.

Try and remember that those risks are mostly your natural reaction to change.

Put them in perspective and you'll be able to master those feelings once and for all!


Let's get this out of the way right now...

Failure in business does NOT mean you are a failure as a person.

So what if you fail at a business venture!

It's not the end of the world. In fact, you should use failure as a learning opportunity:

What mistakes were made, and how can you prevent them next time?

How can you change the course of the business to make it a success?

Everyone knows about Michael Jordan's success.

But here is what he says about his failures:

"I've missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I've lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."

Listen... the cost of starting and running an Internet business is so low, you can get in and try selling to different markets to quickly and easily see which one is most promising.

Besides, you're not on your own. You don't have to reinvent the wheel yourself. Just follow someone who has been successful and copy their systems. Finally, never forget that failure is not permanent.

Just pick yourself up and start again!


If you're the type of person who thinks that something has to be perfect before you allow the world to see it... which means that you NEVER push your business out into the world... you're not alone.

At some point, you just need to get over your potential
embarrassment and say, "To heck with everyone, I'm doing this!"

Your job isn't to be perfect. No one expects you to be perfect, not even your future customers.

They just want you to deliver what you promise and to be responsive when they need help.

They expect you to be human, and humans sometimes make mistakes. No big deal. Just make it right with your customers and they'll continue to be happy.

Here's the BOTTOM LINE:

There are a million things to be afraid of.

But you possess something more powerful than all of those fears...

Your desire to succeed!

Continually remind yourself that those fears you have inside are totally artificial.

Take the leap toward your goals and you'll begin to leave those fears in the dust!
