I can tell you that if I didn’t take a leap of faith I wouldn’t be where I am today. What I’ve noticed over the course of my personal training career is that we fear the idea of failing. I can tell you that I’ve failed countless times. Through experiencing failure I was able to develop better ideas, refine my approach and try again and again until I get it right. I wouldn’t have been able to start my own business and I definitely wouldn’t have been able to stand up on stage in front of hundreds of people in my underwear. I believe we all have a purpose in life and we also have the ability to be extraordinary. Don’t let fear stand in the way of your success.
You can overcome fear by developing confidence and developing a strong inner belief system within yourself. Also, envisioning or seeing yourself being successful or overcoming that thing you maybe fearing. Developing confidence and a strong inner belief system takes time and patience. But by having a relentless pursuit to tackle your deepest fears you`ll be able to knock down your obstacles of fear.
