Fear Is Not Reality (GWTW69)

I’m generally a fearful person. I often fear failure, the unknown, and even success. Leading up to my recent vacation, I was full of fear because this trip was going to be different. I had to rent a car, drive in LA traffic, and do things outside of my comfort zone. In this episode of Getting Work To Work, I talk about overcoming fear and five ways you can fight fear as you engage in new experiences.

Five Ways You Can Fight Fear:

  1. Act as quickly as possible to eliminate fear from taking root.
  2. Place your trust in systems outside of yourself.
  3. Positive self-talk can help prevent fear.
  4. Remember that reality will always be different than what fear says it will be.
  5. Ask yourself: If I give into my fear, will I regret it?
