“What’s the smallest, tiniest thing that I can master and what’s the scariest thing I can do in front of the smallest number of people that can teach me how to dance with the fear?” Once we get good at that, we just realize that it’s not fatal. And that idea is what’s so key — because then you can do it a little bit more.”
Our fear usually tells us what we need to do most.
But many of us have gotten highly-skilled at avoiding and/or numbing that fear.
But the only way you achieve success is by facing a fear and breaking through to the next level.
Otherwise you stay exactly where you are for the rest of your life.
Scared and numb.
Or scared and dissatisfied.
Question 1: When is the last time you stared down a fear and broke through to another level in your life?
Question 2: What are you afraid of doing that you KNOW you must do to achieve success?
Today, take Seth Godin’s advice and take the smallest, tiniest step you can in the direction of your fear.
Someone once said “Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step”
Go ahead….get started on something that scares you a little.
I did and could not be happier.
