Have you ever been afraid to do something? I have. Plenty of times.
So, how do you get over that fear to actually do what it is you want to do?
Use this secret, and at the right time in your life, it could help you make millions. We have all heard the saying:
“You are the closest to success when you feel like giving up.”
Or something like that. Anyway…
To sum this up with an example we will use a ficticious character named Joe. Joe is still “working for the man” and has been for about 10 years. He gets up each morning, takes a shower, kisses the wife goodbye, and goes off to his seemingly dead end job.
At the seemingly dead end job, Joe keeps thinking of what life could be like if he started his own home business. For the last two years, something inside of Joe has been gnawing at his gut.
“What if I just turned in my notice right now and started a home business?”
In the case if Joe was already an entrepreneur…he could be saying…
“What if I took that risk/bought another business etc…?
The point remains the same…there is fear in either case. Fear of the unknown, fear things could go terrible, fear everything could go wrong.
And that fear is what brings me to the lesson in this post…
Let’s continue with Joe as an employed individual, then as an entrepreneur.
Joe started to think“What is the worst that could happen? I could give up my job, start this business…get kicked out of my apartment and on to the street. I might have a hard time looking my wife in the face from falling flat on my face.”
Then Joe felt that feeling of his subconcious trying to tell him something…but this time he listened to it.
Joe’s subconcious said“Is that the worst it can get? Life is short…you can get another apartment, another job if you need to, in a pretty short amount of time.”
Think about that for a second. Really let that thought sink in. Have you ever wanted to take that risk, start a business, etc… and never did it…
All because of the worst case scenario?
If you really think about it, the worst case scenario is worse than staying at your job and dealing with the stress or that “dead end” feeling that you carry home to your loved ones every single day.
Does this imply that you should just take stupid risks? Nope.
But it does imply that you should think twice before giving up on your dream of starting a business, expanding your current business, trying a new method of marketing etc…
We are on this planet for too short of a time to put off working outside of our comfort zone.
And here is the real kicker (and a secret)… most of the time, because our body is preparing for “the worst case scenario” when actually stepping outside of our comfort zone and taking a new risk…
The worst case scenario NEVER happens.
Then you can look back and say “Ha! I overcame that obstacle.” And an even better thing happens…
You look at the next risk a whole new way.
Then, you can unleash the profit machine we all have inside of us.
So, go unleash your inner profit machine, and I hope that after reading this, you will look at risk in a whole new light.
