I just recently posted a quote about fear on my Facebook page, that got a big response. The quote goes like this, “The key to success is for you to make a habit throughout your life of doing the things you fear.” We all have fears that stop us in business—fear of rejection, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of humiliation, fear of criticism, fear of the unknown—you get the idea.
The list can go on for miles. As you probably know, I’ve worked with thousands of entrepreneurs and I witness how they stop themselves by allowing fear and self-doubt to keep them ‘playing small’ in their business and their lives. The thing is, they’re often not even aware of it. Here’s what I mean… People SAY they want something very badly, that they want a change, and theoretically, that they’d do anything to get it.
“Entrepreneurs often allow fear and self-doubt to keep them ‘playing small’ in their business and lives.” (Click here to tweet this.)
But when the rubber meets the road, it’s a totally different story. For many, when it’s time to take action, they’re just not willing to take the steps or do the work that creates the result. It’s that inner self-doubt and all the fear that consistently has them questioning every single move they make in growing their business and their income.
Watch this week’s strategy for the two steps you must take to break through that fear once and for all.
Your Client Attraction Assignment
Ask yourself the following questions. Are you willing to trade short-term discomfort for long-term success? If so, are you willing to go where you have to go? Are you willing to talk to whomever you have to talk to? Are you willing to do what you haven’t done? Are you willing to stretch beyond your comfort zone?
If so, I’ve got great news for you—that is when the clients, the money and all the opportunities show up.

Maybe it’s just me, but I can’t see the video. It’s an empty space on the page. Tried reloading page and right cicking where it should be… Any ideas?
I am more frustrated than I am fearful. You see, I am taking the steps to grow my biz, networking, blogging, social media, article marketing, going to live events, following up, etc, etc, you name it and I am not seeing any results. The FEAR I don’t have, but the FRUSTRATION I do have. I know for a fact that I don’t lack skill set ( social media and blogging), and it’s quiet upsetting to me that I am DOING everything it takes to make my biz grow and nothing is happening the way I want it to. I am not sure what is wrong!
I love a Course in Miracles :) Thank you so much for this reminder and giving me great assignment to work on this week!

So glad to hear you’re taking that step Kristin! Sending you big hugs, and lots of confidence :)
what about fear that we don’t recognize consciously but lurks in our subconscious that leads to self-sabotaging behavior? What is the best way to recognize and deal with those? e.g. people who say that they want to be successfully may subconsciously fear success so they do something to sabotage themselves every time an opportunity comes up.
This is where a lot of inner work, journaling, and working with a coach or mentor might be needed. A lot of time we can’t see our deepest inner blocks. But keep working on it!
Thank you Fabienne! Great video! Especially the reference to Course in Miracles ;) Yes the only moment is now so seize it baby! xxxx
