Many would-be entrepreneurs never get ahead with their biz plans or ideas because of big Fear Factor! They'd really like to make some project click, but too many negative thoughts and ideas hold them back. They worry about failure, legal problems, family opposition, rejection and a myriad of other possibilities. Here we will outline 3 things you can do now to destroy fear and move on confidently toward success!
1) Take Action!
Action actually cures fear. Once you get in middle of a project, you mind will start looking for ways to make your plan work. Inaction, or doing nothing is fear's workshop. Not doing anything will destroy your confidence and those negative thoughts will dominate.
If a net biz is in your plans, take time to learn some new things. You don't have to be an expert on tech issues (experts are a dime a dozen and you can hire as many as you need), but it does help to know something about it. A little understanding on your part can relieve a LOT of stress and doubt. Take time to do your homework.
2) Focus On The Positives!
We live in a negative world, so don't beat yourself up too bad if you have fallen into grove of doubtful thinking. The good news is that you can get out of that rut! When it comes to your biz plan, focus on reasons why it can work instead of why it won't. Whatever you focus on, that is what you will come up with. It's funny how mind works.
Since our business is teaching folks how to earn online income, we did an exercise where we asked individuals if it would be possible to take a homeless person from street and teach them how to make money online. The results of our research are interesting!
The ones who were less successful said that it would not be possible, that person would not even have a PC to work with, or an address to mail his checks to. They could think of every negative reason in world why our experiment with a homeless person would not work.
On other hand, more successful folks (who have earned income online) started to tell us all reasons why it could work. We could take street person to library and teach them how to get online. They could set up a Pay Pal account and have commissions deposited there. We could help them set up a P.O. Box to get mail.
These were some of same ideas that less successful folks came up with when we asked them "Well just imagine for a moment that it could be done, how would you do it?" Then positive answers came!
So get your mind reasoning on all ways something will work, and it will come up with many ideas for you. If you focus on negatives, it will paint a picture for you full of reasons why your plan or biz won't work! Try it yourself. Have some fun with it. Then focus on positives for rest of your life!
