The Fear PR

When you face powerful emotions like fear and failure, do they stop you in your tracks or propel you into forward action?

I spoke about this a few months ago, but I'm so passionate about this topic I wanted to revisit it.

Today I want to challenge you to set a “Fear PR” (PR=Personal Record).

Identify the thing in life that scares you most right now. The thing that keeps you from taking decisive action and moving forward. Ask yourself a few questions:

1. What EXACTLY am I afraid of?

2. What is the absolute worst-case scenario around this fear?

3. Is what’s holding me back in reality or just in my head?

Often diving into what it is you’re actually afraid of will show you that the fear comes from the stories you’re telling yourself in your own head rather than reality.

Recently I set a personal Fear PR. My fear has always been being 100% vulnerable and putting myself and all my flaws out there for the world to see. Recently at a fitness business conference that we attended we had to present on our business. I was nervous about sharing our proprietary information and how we stacked up compared to our other peers in attendance. The fear of judgement is huge for me. Anyways, not only did I get through the presentation but the feedback and brainstorming that followed was amazing! It was so liberating letting go of the emotional stress of the fear and just trusting that we are in the right room. I would've regretted not doing this, and also not gained the new knowledge to progress my business and tribe.

Now go set your Fear PR! Tackle that fear head on. Tell yourself that this is just a stepping stone to your success. And if you “fail,” you get to have an incredible learning experience, since failure is just a slight derailment on your path meant to correct your actions to lead you to where you are supposed to be.
