3. Identify exactly what you are afraid of. As long as your self-doubt and fear remain general and nebulous you will never be able to overcome them. Only by articulating exactly what it is that you are afraid of, are you able to develop a game plan to conquer that fear. "I'm afraid of failing" isn't enough. Dig deeper; figure out EXACTLY what you're afraid of. Are you scared of being broke, looking foolish, or not having enough knowledge? Once you pinpoint exactly what is holding you back, you can create a strategy to minimize your risk. For example, if your fear is of being broke, then you may want to pay extra close attention torepparttar financial part of your business plan and work to minimize your personal spending. If you fear is of not having enough knowledge then you want to build your available resources and have outside experts that you can draw on.

A little bit of self-doubt or nervousness helps to keep you humble, but too much self-doubt however, can be paralyzing.

There’s an idea put forward by Brian Tracy and Colin Rose, in their brilliant course ‘Accelerated Learning’.

They say that if you want to become an expert in, say for instance Stock Trading, find someone who is already an expert and find out what they learnt to get them to where they are today.

If Joe Bloggs, who is currently said to berepparttar best Stock Trader inrepparttar 123913 country, read certain books, attended certain seminars and took certain courses, then dorepparttar 123914 same. Take exactlyrepparttar 123915 same steps (add some of your own alongrepparttar 123916 way) that Joe took to get to where he is.

The more you learn about a subject you’re interested in, repparttar 123917 more confident you become in your own abilities. The gathering and learning of information will increase your self-confidence, will get you known asrepparttar 123918 person with repparttar 123919 answers and somebody who is an expert in that field.

This accumulation of knowledge will then help you get a promotion faster, ensure a better salary and position within repparttar 123920 company, and make you feel happier with your ability to do any job required.

And that’srepparttar 123921 key. When you are armed with knowledge, you can handle any situation that you’re presented with.
