One of the reasons people miss opportunities in life is fear. They fear what is going to happen if they fail. They worry about what people will say if they fail.
Nobody succeeds in life without first mastering fear. Successful people know how to manage fear. If you want to be part of them, you must master the art of fear.
You need to know that you are not going to be comfortable in all situations.
Some situations will be different; others will be familiar. For example, when you are with people you already know, you will behave normal and comfortably. But if you are meeting or doing a presentation to a group of investors, no matter how smart and powerful you are, you’re going to be nervous. One of the things you can do to master this kind of a situation is to practice very well before the meeting or presentation.
Know what you want to achieve in life.
If you know what you want to achieve in life, you will find a way to get it. You will do whatever it takes to succeed. If your desire to succeed in life is more than the fear in your mind, you will win.
Sow the seed of success in your mind.
Planting the seed of success in your mind is the first step to success. Once you have it in your mind, you are going to be thinking about it on a daily basis. The more you think about it, the more you will want to bring it to reality. You become what you carry around every day.
Nurture your seed.
If you keep nurturing your seed, the seed will keep growing. Nurturing the seed also means you must do everything that is humanly possible to keep your dream alive.
It is not enough to just plant your seed of success without proper supervision. If you allow your seed to grow without supervision, the result might not be what you have hoped for. Make sure you follow through in all your plans. If not, fear will take over the process. Don’t allow fear to take over. Take control of the process, and follow through to where you want it to be.
You will be there!
