Fear! Doubt! Hesitation!
All too often, when presented with an exciting opportunity, we refuse to take action on it until we can see the entire pathway from start to finish. We are afraid to start because the outcome is uncertain.
And so we hesitate.
We spend too much time planning, thinking, researching, and analysing – and don’t notice that the opportunity has already slipped away. Highly successful practice owners take a different approach.
When presented with an exciting opportunity, they don’t let doubt or fear stop them from taking action. They open themselves to possibility and pursue that opportunity further – without any expectations or guarantees of success.
Do you ever wish you could embrace opportunities without fear?
Here are proven ways to cultivate a success-focused mindset within yourself – so you can act on opportunities faster, get better results, and create a life you love.
Focus on the “what” – the “how” will take care of itself
When we are presented with opportunities or envision big goals, one question often stops us in our tracks:
“But how will I do it?”
Even if we are able to picture the goal and get excited about the end result, our minds quickly start doubting our ability to turn our dreams into reality.
Don’t worry about the how. Just because you don’t know how every single step of your journey is going to unfold, that shouldn’t stop you from getting started!
All you need to do is get clear on what you want and then take that first step.
When you lean into opportunity, you create momentum. Each step forward, no matter how small, broadcasts your intention to the world. By leaning into it and being willing to explore the unknown, you became a co-creator with the Universe. All you need to do is put one foot in front of the other and keep taking the logical next steps toward your goal – and trust that the answers and resources you seek will appear.
Your journey will take you where you want to go… or even someplace better.
Turn roadblocks into redirection
Roadblocks don’t have to be insurmountable obstacles that put an end to your journey. Often they’re just sign posts pointing you in a new direction that will help you get where you want to go faster and with greater joy and ease.
Experience the fear and take action anyway
The fact is, if you want to take your life and practice to the next level – if you don’t want to stay stuck where you are – you will have to confront your fears.
And that’s okay. Fear is natural.
But some people will do anything to avoid feeling fear. It’s understandable – fear is uncomfortable. And so, in order to avoid that feeling of discomfort, they let their fear stop them from taking the necessary steps to achieve their dreams.
This is something successful practice owners don’t do.
They feel the fear – but they don’t let it stop them. They’re willing to take a leap of faith, even if they are afraid. They know that if you don’t act, opportunity will pass you by.
So many people stop because they’re scared. Don’t let that be you! Embrace your fear. Get excited about it – because it means you’re onto something good!
Almost everything that’s truly valuable in life involves taking a risk. And the truth is, sometimes that risk means things won’t work out in the way you want them to.
So what should you be more afraid of…
Taking the risk and not having it pan out the way you want?
Or NOT taking the risk – and remaining stuck where you are?
