Fear and insecurity They invade us all. If you can manage to overcome doubts and uncertainties, you can experience the freedom to be yourself and reach your full potential as an entrepreneur. The most important thing to understand is that all people go through these feelings at some point in their life, no matter how confident and confident they seem.
After a presentation in the Google offices in New York, an audience asked me, “How do you manage to be so confident and confident?” To which I replied, “How do you know I have so much faith in myself? The truth is that you don’t know what I’m experiencing inside of me, only I know. You get the impression that I have a lot of confidence in myself, but you really don’t know. “
We’ve talked over and over about the importance of trust versus fear, and I left the presentation alarmed about how relevant this topic is. I have seen many people who have prevented themselves from starting something because of great doubts about their own abilities.
It doesn’t matter whether your candidate won the July 1st elections or whether the nation project you supported was not selected. Regarding this important change in Mexico (and the world), I’ll give you five tips when fear and insecurity arise:
1. Don’t forget that it’s normal
When you are afraid or feel insecure, remember that you are simply feeling what most other people are experiencing. You are probably doing something that is new to you or that inspires you. Fear is a common feeling, and I would be more concerned if you never felt it.
2. Complete your calendar
The busier I am, the more secure I feel. Never leave too many spaces in your schedule so you never get scared. I tell people, “If you want to meet the devil, you just have a lot of free time.” Doubt loves people who have plenty of time to think about themselves and evoke negative feelings.
3. Accept the fear
For me, fear has become an indicator of the things I really need and have to do … and which have produced the best results. Do what you are so scared of and only then will you see your self-confidence increase. I am not suggesting that you take any physical risks, but I do suggest that you make the call that you have avoided so much.
Regardless of the results, you will get out of the situation inspired by what you did instead of thinking less about yourself for not doing anything about it.
4. Get out of your comfort zone
Successful people do not seek solace; She strives for success and is ready to do the most uncomfortable. Most people seek the traditional and the comfort, which are the traps that cause you to become mediocre. If you want to take your business to the next level, you have to make yourself comfortable doing the inconvenient.
5. Take 10x actions
Albert Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge, but I will take higher measures. I am not the smartest or most creative person, but I assure you that if I operate at activity level 10 times above my competition, I will dominate.
I never use the word “action” in the singular because I have never found a single action that is effective enough and does not require others. Multiply whatever you think is necessary by 10 and become an action machine. If you do, the fear will go away.
