We all have a fear of something. Snakes, spiders, birds, falling off high places, walking under ladders, flying…. those can be pretty scary,
especially if you have to face them alone or *gulp* in the dark *gulp*
But for this post, I’ll be speaking about Business and the fears we all face or faced at one time or another. I thought about this last night, after I posted the Blog I was actually working on. You can read that here too , How to Make Money From Blogging Kinda goes hand-n-hand a little. If you’re going to make money you can’t be afraid of it or the outcome.
Getting back to what I was saying, a post popped in my facebook newsfeed, “7 ways to think differently about fear”, written by Michelle Pescosolido.

Because that’s where the breakthroughs live.”
Your products have demand. The comp plan rewards distributors. The marketing tools work. In other words, the whole process has
already been tested and proven. It works.
So what is the only variable?
You. Or more specifically, whether you will keep trying and keep learning.
Because even if you don’t know everything you need to know yet…
Even if your skills are where they need to be…
Even if you mess some things up and make some mistakes along the way…
If you simply stay in the game and continue to work on these things, you will break through, because you’re simply following a process that has already been proven!
You have to be your biggest fan. The work you do matters. It matters to you, because you’re building self-discipline. You’re developing character and new skills that will help you in all areas of your life, both professional and personal. It matters because you care enough about yourself to challenge yourself, to refuse mediocrity and go after what you want in life.
