How do you overcome your fears? What most leaders aren’t addressing enough (or at all) is how freaking hard it is to get over your fears.
Seriously – how do you move forward in your work as a Conscious Business Owner when the minute you get to work, this shows up:
“What if I can’t get new clients?”
“Why would people even listen to ME?”
“Secretly, I feel like a Fraud…”
“I’m not ready yet… I need more training”
“I’ve done this before and it didn’t work…”
Mark here and let me tell you… WE FEEL YOUR PAIN!
Shannon and I have been knocked down to our knees.
We struggled with our niche, started businesses that failed and yes, just a few years ago we were totally in your shoes, worried sh**t that none of this would work…and maybe we should just get a J.O.B.
We happened to come across a sentence that helped us move past those fears for good.
Not that the fears went away forever – but anytime they did come up, we use this sentence and the fears melt away like snow in the Sahara.
THE SENTENCE THAT TURNS FEAR INTO LOVE
“We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?” – Marianne Williamson
Think about it:
Who are you that someone should NOT listen to you when you have so much wisdom to give? Who are you to think this won’t work when you’ve overcome so much already?
Fear and love can’t exist simultaneously.
So when you’re focusing on ‘What if I can’t get new clients’ – you’re creating fear.
But when you instead feel, “My new clients are going to love what I have in store for them” – you can’t feel the fear.
The way to overcome fear is to turn that exact and specific fear into LOVE.
“No chance people will pay me for this…” – just turn into, “People will LOVE to pay me well for my services and gifts” and watch how your energy shifts immediately.

Where there’s fear, there’s no love; and where there’s love, there’s no fear.
So the most powerful way to overcome your fear is by turning it into love.
