Oh yeah, I get scared too!


I do a LOT of mastermind training with successful business owners.  I was on a live training today with a mindset coach and she asked us to list 20 reasons we are willing to get over our fears in business.  I thought I would share my list with you even though it is slightly off topic at times.


20 reasons/ways I get over my fears or keep doing my best to push past them & how I make it all work from ME.


  1. Knowing that I would rather do this then get a job
  2. Knowing that I am around for my kids if and whenever they need me
  3. I control my time
  4. I have time!
  5. I can make time for what is important
  6. When I take time for myself I sharpen my blade for greater work
  7. When I meditate I am able to lose time in a good way
  8. When I take time to plan my day I get so much more done
  9. I created a HUGE framed whiteboard that is behind my desk that keeps my to-do list for all my clients on it
  10. I set aside time for my teenage son because he matters so much
  11. I read a motivational book once a month minimum
  12. I read a marketing inspiration book at least once a month
  13. I do affirmations daily
  14. I do my best to separate the past from today and from the future
  15. I have an office I LOVE to work in
  16. I keep an emergency fund so that I don’t get as scared to make errors which keeps my mind from going crazy.
  17. I use what I have and I make it work
  18. I remember that I have never failed so bad that I lost my house or my son
  19. I go back to my success moments and let myself feel good about them all
  20. I work with a mindset coach and do EMDR
  21. I hired an assistant even though I initially could not afford to
  22. I hired a proofreader because I suck so bad (that is a new thing as of today)
