When I read The Most Productive People View Fear The Way Other People View Lunch by Business Insider, I thought, “Wow! Sales call reluctance. How many salespeople could use a new mindset to overcome that fear!?”
Before I read the article, I thought it was going to be an ‘I eat fear for breakfast’ kind of thing. But, it was more of a “Feel the Fear . . . and Do It Anyway‘ kind of thing. Because, what it is, is a feeling that the feeling of fear is inevitable, so just deal with it, already.
If you think you or your team at work THE MAIN THING TO TAKE AWAY IS THAT YOUR FEAR CAN BE OVERCOME. THE FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING IS THE WORST, SO ANYTHING ELSE IS NOT AS BAD.
If you’re a salesperson, or in a position that requires persuasion, you can rest easy knowing the best of the best feel fear before doing what they do. A comedian, a speaker, an athlete, a surgeon, whoever.
Anyone hoping to achieve great things gets nervous. Anyone trying to achieve great things gets scared.
Productive people aren’t braver than others; they just find the strength to keep moving forward. They realize fear is paralyzing while action creates confidence and self-assurance.
Especially, if you eat what you kill, you need the following help because even though the Business Insider gives important insight, it doesn’t give you the how to. This is what you really need.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming for Dummies is spells out the strategy for actually doing this.
Another good idea for keeping on keeping on is contained in my article, Rejection Ejection.
