Whatever it is…Bust the Fear! A few years ago, I did something exciting, some may say crazy! I jumped 14,000 feet out of an airplane! Believe me I was really scared but I did it anyway. I have always maintained, that we should do some things even when afraid. Follow fear and you talk yourself out of getting out of your comfort zone. Ask yourself, what do I have to lose? Where will I be this time next year if I don’t make that move? What steps do I need to take?
As I prepared to jump, I planned. I searched for a reputable company with a track record of safety and success. I completed paperwork, insurance and more. Then I stepped out and had the most wonderful experience as I did the tandem jump and floated in the air looking out on the horizon.
That was me. You must create that mindset. Ask yourself, what do I want to do? What are the steps I will need to take to get to my goal? Personally, I like vision boards. Like Magnet, they helped steer my way. For example, when studying we are often encouraged to look to graduation and put up that picture where you can see it every day, not Bury it. For me it was my research project. I was not interested in doing a research to place on a shelf at home. No. I wanted it to help others who wish to develop their leadership skills and become successful. So that’s exactly what I did. My research ended up being published in the Journal of American Academy of Business Cambridge (JAABC). It was also published in books, and I use the basis of my research and interest to encourage others through coaching. That’s my passion.
So, go ahead, bust out that fear! Develop that new mindset!
