It might be hard to admit but fear is real and it can be debilitating.
However, people deal with fear in different ways. Most people by doing nothing.
I’m a little different.
I do everything.
Fear causes me to focus on doing more rather than laser focusing. It’s easier to do everything so you never truly fail but then you never truly succeed.
I saw a visual for a quote that was a great reminder about how powerful the sun is and how it can beam down on a boat for years and never be able to burn a hole through a wooden boat.
However, when you take a magnifying glass and you focus the power of the sun on one place, it begins to burn that hole through that precise spot.
In other words, laser-focus is everything. In order for me to fully take the next step and level up. It doesn’t just ask for focus it requires focus.
That’s what I intend to do is take that magnifying glass and remove everything else.
For me that maginfiying glass is CBNation (primarily the podcast) and LinkedIn. Using the 1 or 2 “ingredients” to reach my goals.
I went skydiving to face my fear of heights. I left a few positions to go skydiving. Now, I’m skydiving in a different way.
Feel the fear and do it anyways.
