Solution Definition Button Shows Achievement Vision And Success

All of us have times when we are afraid of something, and sometimes we can allow these fears to get in our way and hold us back from pursuing what we want. Although fear sometimes can hold us back, we must acknowledge that fear has an legitimate function in our lives, it alerts us to something that could possibly be of harm to us.

I wrote of my fear of driving on the motorway at night in my last blog ‘Is your fear holding you back unnecessarily?’, of how the story I had been telling myself kept this unrealistic fear going for many, many years and how I was able to banish it in one weekend when I decided to handle my fear instead of it handling me.

Is Fear Holding You Back Unnecessarily?

FearIn my last blog, “Are you, your own worst enemy?”, fear was the third reason I stated that made you your own worst enemy.

Progress (2)






Isn’t it ironic the very thing that we think we have mastered comes back to bite us on our backsides, with a harder lesson to take us to the next level.

When it does, it’s up us to either work through it or bomb out!

Why do we self-destruct? Why do we stop half way through a process of change and say “hey folks, we need to stop working otherwise we will actually achieve the thing we most desire!”

Happy New Year to You all!!!!

It’s 2011 and many of you have probably made New Year’s resolutions to change this or that but by the time we get to the end of January many of us will have failed to continue with these changes we committed to make at the beginning of the New Year.
