If we think deeply on what’s stopping us from realizing our goals, it is nothing but FEAR.
Fear stops us from realizing our true potential.
But fear can be good as well. It can help us address problems early and solve them. Sometimes even before we encounter them. But solving problems before we encounter is being over cautious. That’s not necessary.
More than Planning and Execution, what is important is this: Persistence. That is the single most important ingredient for Success.
Persistence can be the antidote to Fear. There’s nothing that cannot be achieved with Persistence. Simply nothing.
In Sales, we have fear of rejection and that stops us from even approaching a client. The bright side is that there are a million Opportunities worth pursuing. There is someone whose needs you readily match. Find them. Get them. In the process, you will lose many opportunities, but that’s fine.
Fear need not be feared but needs to be addressed and overcome.
In Edward De Bono’s Six Thinking Hats, there’s a RED hat that signifies feelings, hunches and intuition. It is important to address fears, likes, dislikes, loves, and hates.
Even to Lose a game, we need to first PLAY.
So let’s PLAY without FEAR.
