4 Quick Tactics to Conquer Fears and Doubts – These might be just what is needed to help take your fearful thoughts and actions captive and reach new milestones –
- Fear is Normal—Learn to Proactively Manage It. We can train and equip ourselves to make logical choices that manage our fears (instead of our fears managing us). Oppositely, fear of failure not managed can cause all sorts of problems as mentioned above.
- When Fear Hits, Stick With Your Values and Principles. Even when we’re overwhelmed, we still have choices about how we’ll respond. Once a leader clarifies what is really important, he or she can make courageous choices to achieve goals even when faced with doubts and fears.
- Be Willing to Suffer for the Right Causes. Great achievements are generally the culmination of a lot of delayed gratification, making hard choices and doing hard things—and yes, suffering. So when you look ahead at your goals, consider your passion for them and be willing to sacrifice.
- Don’t Fight Fear Alone. We need connection to others who can support us with wisdom and encouragement. Mutual support is the critical need of every warrior and every person who is fighting the battles of life. Engage with your key support team.
Fears and doubts are part of life and especially a big part of leadership. Thankfully, we have ways to manage them. Lean into the pain of your fear and do the right thing—believe in yourself—I believe in you. Please comment on your wisdom and experience too – thank you
