“People say to face your fears. I disagree.
I say look PAST your fear to your goals, and focus on them. If those are important enough to you, your fears will disappear.”
– Terry Fossum
If you focus on your fears, then that’s all you can see! They become the biggest influence
in your emotions. Don’t focus on them. Focus on your goals. Focus on why it’s so critical that you accomplish them. Create emotion. If you do that effectively enough, you’ll be so inspired, angry, desperate or whatever emotion works for you that you’ll attempt to reach them no matter what. Then, and only then, can the fear lose its hold over you.
Read the story of Admiral Farragut, who won a distinctive naval battle with a singular battle cry: “Damn the Torpedoes, Full Steam Ahead”
If we embrace that same battle cry in our everyday life, our fears will shrink back from us, and our goals and dreams will become our reality.
Don’t believe me? Give it a try for a month. Look PAST your fears, and put them where they belong, in your past. Focus on your emotion of why you MUST accomplish your goals.
Then, Damn the Torpedoes, Full Steam Ahead!
To Your Success,
