Attitude matters so much in our success. In fact, I’m doing a teleclass on Attitude adjustments and More, Strategies to Love your Job for the Association of Image Consultants International.
When our attitude is based in fear it holds us back. Deepak Chopra calls FEAR – “False Evidence Appearing Real.” When we act as if our fears are real, these limiting beliefs result in limited actions and limited results. You might not even know you are operating from fear. Below is a list of common thoughts I hear from my career coaching clients.
Can you guess how many are facts and which are fears?
Answer: Only one, “Changing careers takes time and energy.” – is a fact. The rest are fears – false reasons many people are stuck in careers they don’t enjoy. If you are ready to conquer your fears and do work you love, here are resources that work for me:
- Listen to Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers – The audio-version is my go-to whenever I need a boost to do something that scares me.
- Stay adventurous in your travels with articles and tours and read how ziplining helped me conquer my fears on a trip to Africa.
- Join my monthly mastermind program. Having positive, uplifting people in your life is crucial especially if you hit a roadblock or run into a setback. Enlist support from others, not criticism and you’ll benefit from having a positive touchstone in your life. I call it “entering Maggie’s world, where anything is possible.”
I encourage you to separate fact from fear and experience the energy that courage gives you energy. “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.”–Eleanor Roosevelt.
