How Fear Can Stop Your Dreams

By Jordan Francis
Posted Friday, December 24, 2004

Let me tell you something. Fear is bad. Fear is the opposing force to taking action. To achieving results... to reaching out and fulfilling your dreams.

Fear can stop you from taking action that could improve your life considerably.

I have direct experience of fear getting in the way of my dreams.

I’m a Kung Fu nut.

Last year, I really wanted to travel to Malaysia so that I could do a Shaolin Kung Fu course. This is dream stuff for me. I REALLY wanted to do it.

It was expensive and it would mean I would have to travel alone to a different country, but I really REALLY wanted to do it.

Lots of people travel alone all the time, and would not consider this to be a problem, but for me it’s the opposite. Sure, it sounds fun, it’s an adventure and all but I just couldn’t get comfortable with it.

I didn’t go to Malaysia.

Now it’s a year later, and the course is available again.

Same place, same fee. And I have the same fear.

Am I going?

I can not let this fear inside rule me. It’s not fair right? Why should I let it rule me, why let is get in the way of my dreams?

You see fear can be the opposing force to realising your dreams. It stopped me last year, and I didn’t really know why. This year is different though. I still have those feelings, the fear, but this time I know that if I...

...take the first step

...the rest WILL follow.

It just has to. What is the worst that could happen? Nothing that couldn’t just happen any other day.

So I WILL be going to Malaysia this year, in April to be exact, to learn Shaolin Wahnam Kung Fu from my Sigung (Sifu Wong Kiew Kit) and I can’t wait.

So what has this got to do with you? What has this got to do with running a home business?

==> Fear is the opposing force to taking action... realising your dreams.

I want to ask you something.

Is fear stopping you from doing something that you really want to do? It could be about work, it could be about anything.

It could be that you are worried about what other people will think.

It could be commitments that you feel are stopping you from taking action.

Is it a fear of losing?

It could be that you are worried about making mistakes. It could be the plain and simple fear that I described above.

Are you going to let it stop you, or are you going to beat it?

“The longest journey starts with a single step”

How to be beat fear.

It’s all about taking action dear friend. The sooner you start, the sooner your fear will vanish. If you never make the effort, you will NEVER achieve your goals. How can you? It’s you and only you that can make things happen in your life.

Are you taking action every day? Do you take steps every single day that push you and your business towards your next goal? You do have a goal right?

Is it commitments? Are they real or apparent? I don’t know about you, but I have a habit of making things more complicated or bigger than they actually are. Don’t do it!

If you spend all your life always worried about what others think, worrying what people will say or think, you will spend your entire life never making progress.

It’s that simple.

Trust me as soon as you take the first step, you will be starting your journey to success. It all hangs on the first step.

If you never start, you will never finish. If you start, you can then proceed with the journey. Everything will fall in to place when you start taking action.

If you make a mistake, don’t worry about it! Don’t get down about it, just pick yourself up and try again. Learn from it and move on.

Trying to build your list? It won’t build by itself now will it? Go take action. If you don’t know how, find out. If you know how, do it! It does not matter what stage you are at, you can always move forward. So get moving!

Still not sure what to sell? Quit thinking about it so much, it’s time to pick something and get on with it. If you want to change it later you can do so, but if you don’t get on with it now you might never do it! You won’t even begin. Don’t let fear hold you back. If you want try your hand at selling something, do it!

“The longer you leave it, the less likely you will even begin”

What ever you decide to do, just do it and enjoy it!

Wishing you success,

Jordan Francis.
