Take the next step

The other day I was talking to my friend John who is a very successful NLP trainer and coach. I asked him if he had any words of wisdom for my readers about overcoming fear and taking action.

He reminded me that inaction is a symptom of fear. Predominantly a fear of failure. He said that often times we are not clear in our desires to succeed. That is, deep down we can’t believe that we can be successful and therefore we take no action.

How do we get rid of this fear I asked John eagerly. Isn’t it what stops most of us moving towards our dreams?

“Look inward”, he said “Find in yourself those limiting beliefs that are causing you doubt. In doing this know that you are a unique and special person with knowledge, traits and perspective that ONLY you have and as soon as you believe in yourself and use your unique skills you will succeed.”

As long as you are afraid to take the next step in pursuit of your dreams you are inactive. Things go stale and you move away from what you want so take a careful self assesment and add up all the things that make you unique and understand that it is exactly this uniqueness that will help you reach your goals.

Dare and jump

To your unlimited success
