How Do I Overcome My Fears?

How do I overcome my fears? It’s something I am asked as a coach time and time again. Imagine if you were more afraid of what life would be like if you didn’t follow through on something. If you didn’t take action. If you didn’t make your dream a reality?

How much more useful would that type of fear be?

This mindset is the difference between successful and unsuccessful  people. Fear isn’t a bad thing, fear isn’t something that you need to avoid.

Fear can fuel you to make your dreams a reality.

Successful people fear missing out, they fear the cost of not doing something. They fear not taking the risk, both in business and their personal life. Successful people are excited by fear, because fear means progress.

So how do you use fear in a positive way?

Eliminate self doubt

Learning to eliminate self doubt is something that i am so passionate about. This month, I’ve been writing about all things relationships. Romantic ones, work related and the relationship you have with yourself.

This week I want to write about the relationship you have with your mind because I think this is one of the most abused (and allowed) relationships

Let’s think about it for a moment. You meet up with a friend for coffee, she greets you by telling you how much weight you’ve put on since you last met, how that jumper looks like an old bin bag on you oh and blue really isn’t your colour.

Over a brownie, You tell her about a new opportunity you are thinking about going for and she shuts you down with a “blimey, you don’t have the right experience for that and you are way too old, don’t even think about it. You would never get it anyway, not with a face like yours, I’d stop with these thoughts because you really do sound like an idiot.

You arrive home feeling like the total loser that you are and you’ve put your dreams in the bin where they belong!

What would you do next?..

How Not To Be Single - Start By Working On Your Relationship With Yourself.

You need to stop looking, then he will turn up, love doesn’t happen if you keep looking for it. Don’t worry, you won’t be single forever.

This was the well-meaning advice I received time and time again during what seemed a lifetime of picking the wrong men and being single.

This advice was normally forcefully offered from women who had bagged themselves a great fella, lived a seemingly perfect life in a perfect house with perfect children. What was their secret? How the hell did they do it?

Personal Development Coaching

Everyone should have a coach, coaching is the best thing that ever happened to me. Personal development coaching changed my life beyond all recognition. I love coaching, can you tell?

As a result of personal development coaching I am;
  • Less stressed and far equipped to deal with life’s hurdles,
  • Able to quickly reduce my anxiety levels with a handful of strategies so it doesn’t take over and ruin my entire day,
  • Far clearer on what I want out of life and now have the tools to ensure I make my dreams happen,
  • Able to decrease the level of worry I experience, allowing me to feel free with more headspace to focus on the things that matter.
  • I have more fulfilling relationships as I am more present and not constantly “in my head”
  • I’m more confident and ooze of self-belief,
  • Best of all, I am happier now, than I have ever been.

I would argue (very strongly) that everyone would
benefit from having a personal development coach.

Increasing your self-esteem on the most depressing day of the year

Oh great, there’s even an awareness day to mark just how low my self-esteem is.. Blue Monday is described as the most depressing day of the year. It’s based on a combination of;

  • How much time that’s passed since you made your new year’s resolutions,
  • Your low motivational levels,
  • The cold weather,
  • Christmas is now a distant memory, yet most of us are still paying for it,
  • Your debt levels (that credit card will be due soon)

Perfection

Are you a perfectionist? “I don’t have time to think about myself or take care of my own needs. Everyone else comes first; my kids, my husband, work…even the dog comes before me! I have to keep all the plates spinning; I have to be an amazing mother and wife and be successful at work…I just need to work out how to be perfect”

Sound familiar?
