How to KICK fear’s ASS
Fear is something that everyone experiences. It’s one of the deadly killers and kills more dreams than failure ever will. Our ability to fight fear will be the determining factor between our success and failure.
I know fear very well. Fear is a close enemy of mine that regularly rears its ugly head. I’ve been an entrepreneur for 2 years now and I can tell you that fear is constantly on me. The fear of failure. The fear of rejection. The fear of the unknown. The fear of success. It’s a constant battle between my faith and my fears and we need to become resilient to fighting fear if we want to live our dreams.
Below is a framework that I use whenever I face a fear and its served me well so far. I hope you find the same value.
K – Knowledge
Once you have gotten the knowledge, fear has less of a grip on you. With knowledge and competence you can build confidence, which is fear’s worst enemy.
C – Coach
A coach should be someone who is living the life you want to live, which means he knows the path you have taken and can guide and support you where needed. You can ride on your coach’s confidence and they can fight the fear alongside you.
A – Action
Inaction feeds fear, actions beats it. There is a saying, if you hear a voice in your head that says you cannot paint, then by all means, paint and that voice will be silenced.
S – Support
The journey of fighting fear is a tough journey and can be lonely (especially since most people choice to surrender in silence to fear). Make sure you’re surrounded by people who are supportive, positive and have your best interest at heart.
S – System
Success leaves clues. There are millions of systems that have been proven to work, you just need to find one that gets you where you want to go and replicate it.
FEAR stands for False Evidence Appearing Real. So the next time that fear rears its tentacles, remember you just need to KCASS!
