3 Reasons Why Stepping Out Beyond Your Fears Is Worth The Risk


.
Have you ever stood on the edge of a cliff and wondered what it would be like to fly?
.

I mean like  – take a leap and sour out over the valley?
.
.

I have an almost insatiable thirst to fly.
It’s apparently why I hike to the edge of cliffs
why I like to drive moving trucks across the country
and why I’m an entrepreneur
.
I once said to a counselor,  “I don’t live by fear.
She gave me a condescending look of doubt and disbelief.
I promptly fired her!!
.
It’s not that I don’t feel fear.
It’s more that I refuse to allow it to control my life.
I refuse to be stopped by it.
.
I today’s article, I’d like to help you do the same.
.
If you prefer to LISTEN rather than READ, then here’s your MP3: Enjoy!

.
.

Here’s 3 reasons why stepping out beyond our fears is worth the risk.
.

.
1) It teaches our brains a new definition of fear.
.

.

.
See – fear exists in the brain… not in real life.

Fear is a made up ‘reality’
It’s our brain’s way of keeping us out of danger.
Depending on each brain’s interpretation of danger – fear looks differently.
.
.

This is why some people are afraid of heights and others aren’t.
The height differential is the same.
What the individual brain sees and registers in each person is what makes the difference.

.

I honestly had a BIG fear that my crowd funding campaign would be a total flop.

* My family is now in heaven
* I’m still developing entrepreneurial venture partners for my business.

* Many friends don’t understand what I’m doing.
* Who else in this economy is going to help little ole me?

 

.
What if it failed while the world was watching?

* What would that do to my business?
* How would that effect my efforts to attract the right clients and partners?
* What would this do to all the progress I’ve made emotionally and in my ability to re-frame the difficult past experiences of my life?

.
I had a choice to make:

a) step out and and risk it all
or
b) give in to the fear and stay slumped down in a corner

.

I chose to step out!
.

By stepping out I helped my brain to learn that flopping publicly does not equal being eaten alive by a large animal and that I and my business would be just fine no matter the outcome.
.

I took the risk and I’m so glad I did.
.
.
.

2) It teaches us that ‘NO’ is ‘YES’.

.

.

Darren Hardy, my business mentor, says this:
“Go out there and fail as much as possible!”
.
.

As a real estate agent, Darren would knock on doors every work day until he had 50 nos.
He would actually mark them off on a chart!!!
.

He got pretty used to hearing no and he developed a strong resistance to rejection.
.
During my campaign I had to be very courageous.
It wasn’t enough to post photos and pleas on Social Media.
.
I had to email our community and contact personal and entrepreneurial friends. It’s a scary thing to contact people personally and ask for help.
.
I kept hearing my mentor in my head:


“Go out there and get as many ‘no’s as possible.

Eventually you’ll learn to like it.”
.

Did I hear ‘No’s?
YES!!
.
Did it kill me?
NO!
.
Truth is – Hearing ‘no’ from one person clears up space so we can hear ‘yes’ from the right person who truly does believe in us and what we have to offer.
.

Go head – go for the NO!
It’s the only way to get to the YES!
.

..

Now I mean this in every positive sense
Not every person who is in our life today is meant to be there tomorrow.
And – that’s OK!

.
In fact – anyone who has ever stepped out into a new adventure – chosen to use new language – changed careers – or became an entrepreneur has experienced this.
.
.

My mentors explain this in various ways.

.

They say people:

* feel afraid for us when we’re doing something they don’t understand
* feel angry because of that fear or because they wonder why they aren’t also doing it
* feel indifferent
.

They say people may:

* yell at you
* put you down
* ignore you
*show indifference: ‘Good Luck to ya. It’s not my problem.
I don’t want to hear about it.’ 

.

On the flip side, it’s a bright heart-lifting surprise to see who pops up with enthusiasm.

* People you never expected
* People you thought didn’t know you existed
* People who don’t even personally know you

.
These people show up on the sidelines yelling cheers and waving sparklers.
They dance.
You dance.
Others dance.
The party explodes with enthusiasm and joy!
.

All of the sudden, in the midst of your courage – you’ve sorted out who really is in your court and who isn’t. And that’s OK!

.

The ones who surround us most closely affect us in every way and even influence our subconscious.
When some choose to leave, we must simply see it as a gift.
If they were meant to stay, they would have.
.
Those in our inner circles get the front row seats of our subconscious minds. It’s better to have the ones in those seats who truly want to be there.

There comes a time

.

Why is stepping out beyond our fear worth the risk?
.
1) It teaches our brains a new definition of fear.
.
2) It teaches us that ‘NO’ is ‘YES’.
.
3) It helps us sort out our relationships
