Have you ever taken the plunge to reach a big scary, but exciting goal then found that there’s a niggling after-feeling of fear, doubt and self-recrimination of wondering what you’ve got yourself into? In my daily life of supporting clients to life their best lives and really step up to the plate, I see the anguish that can follow a commitment to master a new step – even though there is a HUGE desire deep down to do it.
I wanted to share something with you. These experiences are PERFECTLY NORMAL. How you handle it, is what matters…and here’s the thing. Nothing sucks the life out of you more than giving up on something that really matters to you, in fact, I believe, the desire never really leaves you – you just squash the life out of it. So, I urge you to NEVER do that, and to TRUST that whatever you’re experiencing now is happening FOR you, so that you can dig deeper and learn how to grow through it. You’ll be way stronger for it in the end.
But how do you stay the course when the jitters hit you
You have to learn to trust and have faith in yourself, or something else, that you CAN make it through the maze.
You can use these 3 ways to outsmart your fears and take giant leaps towards the life, career, business, relationship of your desires:
- Get super clear on why you want it – and remind yourself multiple times a day why your life will be better when you create the change or the outcome you desire.
- Know intimately what could possibly stop you, and determine what will help you through the tough times. It’s the mindset piece and your problem-solving capacity that make the difference every time.
- Form a buddy alliance with someone you can count on to help you through the tough times. Even better, get a coach/mentor. Someone you KNOW will only lift you higher, inspire you and keep you on the path that you have chosen for yourself.
When YOU choose so make it happen regardless, everything changes. Including you and your life. For the better.
