Do not let fear stop you 

In life, there are going to be times when we feel fear. It is not the fear that is problem, it’s what we do when we feel fear.

I remember years ago, after going through a time period where fear dominated my life someone told me the acronym for fear. It simply is false evidence appearing real.

What an empowering way to look at fear from this point of view…Fear is false and you don’t have to let it stop you from moving forward in life.

What do you fear?

A common fear many people have is speaking in public. I used to be one of them until I realized that speaking publicly can help me reach more people with our message of hope.

Some common fears are fear of: rejection, the unknown, being talked negatively about by other people, heights, etc.

The bible in 2 Timothy 1:7 states for God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

No matter what you fear- do not let it stop you. I like what Joyce Meyer always say “do it afraid!”

I find that when I do things that I think are fearful that I gain more confidence and the fear starts to fade away.

Don’t worry about what people say

Some people are so consumed about what people are going to say about them. They don’t take action on their goals and dreams. This is one of the fears that are a stumbling block for a lot of people.Some people are so consumed about what people are going to say about them. They don't take action on their… Click To Tweet

I used to worry about what people say about me until I realized that they are not God and cannot control my destiny in life.

Mercedes or Mazda which one would you choose?

Years ago I worked with a woman whose husband wanted to buy her a Mercedes Benz. When she told me I was excited for her and told her to let him buy it for her.

I really like Mercedes cars and wanted to see her get one. She looked at me and said “Tam what would the ladies in the office say?” I could not believe that she was willing to forgo this car because of the fear of what her coworkers would have said.

She choose a Mazda. Don’t get me wrong a Mazda is a good car- but it’s not in the same class as a Mercedes.

Take action

You can do whatever you make up your mind to do. Start by planning and writing your goals and dreams down. You need to look at them regularly and make necessary changes in your life that you need to achieve them.

Research and gather relevant information that will be helpful for to reach your goals. Don’t discuss your goals with negative, jealous people who don’t want you to succeed.

Last but not least, do not forget to help someone else get what they want too. I like what Zig Ziglar stated “You can have everything in life you want if you will just help other people get what they want”.Last but not least, do not forget to help someone else get what they want too.
