Being an entrepreneur today seems to be filled with the task of stop worrying and coping with anxiety.
Exactly what is it that stops somebody from pursuing a dream and reaching goals?
Worry, fear and doubt!
As you absorb this brief article keep in mind this spiritual metaphysical principle from The Course in Miracles:
- “What is the sense in seeking to be safe in what was made for danger and for fear?
Fear is a terrible obstacle in the world when you lack faith and trust in your passions and purpose.
For the self-employed as an entrepreneur excessive worry likes to raise its ugly head.
It is fear that triggers us to halt when we need to step forward.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said about stop worrying: “You get strength, guts, and confidence by every experience where you truly stop to look worry in the face. You need to do the important things which you believe you can not do.”
When she encouraged others to begin managing anxiety and look worry in the face, Eleanor spoke extremely wise.
Typically we have the propensity to recognize fear and then allow that worry to grow until we can hardly breathe. And when thinking about it far too much, isn’t it tough to stop worrying?
Mrs. Roosevelt also supplied the very same encouragement revealed by Nike– Just Do It.
She made no effort to reduce the worry and anxiety we might experience. She just provided a strong statement that there is something waiting beyond the worry if we will move through it
I mean letting go of the thing that imparts fear to the opposite where we are most likely to find nerve and success.
To stop worrying and coping with fear and anxiety is not a reasonable thing.
You can not negotiate it away.
But you can look for the fact about what you fear the most and what your excessive worry is about.
In being an entrepreneur this can be accomplished by asking questions of those who have established a business of their own.
It can also be accomplished by investigating the dangers associated with company or corporate ownership.
Once these steps are taken you might have to ask an objective, yet trusted, source to assist you honestly.
Yes, someone to help you comprehend your strengths and weaknesses.
It’s so you can figure out if you can face your fears with a strong possibility of success.
It is intriguing to keep in mind that frequently we fail to trust ourselves enough to make a determination on our capabilities to do something.

Try to find someone you can talk with to identify the truth about the fears you might have.
Especially when considering an entrepreneurial effort, you can always start by taking a note pad and noting your strengths and weaknesses.
You can follow that up by recognizing the advantages and disadvantages of your business venture.
Write a letter to yourself about the fears you have. I’m saying try to determine just how much truth there is to the fears you’ve expressed.
Being an entrepreneur does need a specific quantity of risk and can impart a particular quantity of excessive worry.
You ought to always seek the truth about yourself and face your worries one at a time.
The Course in Miracles asks us to contemplate: “Do I want the problem or do I want the answers?”
With each small victory you come closer to getting exactly what Eleanor Roosevelt described as, “Strength, guts and confidence by every experience.”
Ask yourself, Why do I worry so much?”
Once these actions are taken you might think to ask an impartial, yet trusted, source to help you. Again, I say to truthfully understand your strengths and weak points.
It’s important you determine if you can face your fears with a strong opportunity of success.
Compose a kind and gentle letter to yourself about the doubt and fears that are holding you back in life.
You need to determine how much reality there is to the excessive worry you’ve expressed.
Remember, being an entrepreneur does need a certain quantity of facing fears and risks.
Likewise risk can instill a certain amount of effort on your part to stop worrying so much.
Go ahead, right now, and seek the truth about yourself and face your fears one at a time, and naturally start coping with anxiety and fear.
