This is Part 2 of a three-part series talking about fear and how to overcome it so you can reach higher and rise to your full potential.
I invite you to ask yourself these three questions so you can see the opportunities that lie ahead.
Question 1: What’s the worst possible thing that could happen?
There may be some doom and gloom that’s spinning around in your head right now. What you may not realize is those scary scenarios are being created by fear.
The trick is to release those fear-based thoughts out of your head by saying it loud. That way, it’s not spinning inside of you where it expands. Get it out in front of you.
Question 2: How likely is it that this worst possible thing will happen?
Ask yourself, on a scale of one to 10, with one being, “It’s definitely going to happen,” and 10 being, “No, not at all. It’s not going to happen at all.” Where does that fear-based thought fit?
Question 3: What could you learn if that worst possible thing were to happen?
There are so many learning opportunities connected to every situation … especially those that are rooted in fear. So ask yourself, What could Iearn, and how might I grow?
Asking yourself these three questions allows you to reframe the fear because you can clearly see the opportunity that lies on the other side.
Every situation has an opportunity attached to it. That’s how you reframe your fear so that you can see the opportunity and you can see the importance of moving forward and moving past it.
In Part 3 you’ll see how to recommit and push past the fear even further, so you can get your important work done.
