I recently read a blog via @weareauburn_uk on “5 Common Fears and How to Address Them To Reach Your Goals” and I loved it so much I’m sharing some of my fave takeaways below...
The Fear - “I won’t have enough time”
The Solution - we all have enough time to do whatever we want, we just need to prioritise.
The Fear - “It’s all too overwhelming”
The Solution - break the challenge down into easier steps.
The Fear - “I am not physically capable of getting it done”
The Solution - write a list of all your achievements, big and small. You will be surprised how capable you are when you review your skill set.
The Fear - “It could be the wrong decision”
The Solution - imagine the worst case scenario, if you can cope with that take the plunge.
The Fear - “What will other people think”
The Solution - it is important to take advice but make sure you listen to those who have experience that can help or have your best interests at heart. And most importantly listen to your gut.
The Fear - “I won’t have enough resolve to keep going when I hit my first hurdle”
The Solution - Plan regular inspirational “pep talks” and make sure you have mentors to turn to for advice when you need help and encouragement.
There will always be a solution, just tackle your fears head on and know that you can and will overcome them. Also, don’t forget to lean on your community. We’ve got your back xxx
