Those of you who know me well know that I am an introvert.
I struggled with talking to people on the phone when I first started my business! I was SO afraid!
What if they tell me no, what if they don’t like me?
I was so wrapped up in the other person’s opinion I was holding myself back, which not only stifled my potential but hurt the ability of the people I talked to to believe in the opportunity.
I read a story about an old man who went to a graveyard with his young apprentice. The old man told him the greatest entrepreneur is buried here, can you pick him out?
The tombstone was hardly visible and barely marked. He lived and died never making more than $30,000 a year. He never had the courage to become an entrepreneur, but had he faced his fears, he would have been the greatest.
Most people never live up to the potential they have been given. The results they produce and the life they experience are only a tiny fraction of what they are truly capable of.
Why? What stops us?
Only one thing: FEAR.
Fear can stifle, block and bury your potential.
“Fear is not real. It’s an illusion, a phenomenon that resides entirely within your own brain”.
