“If you face just one opponent, and you doubt yourself, you’re out-numbered.” – Dan Millman
We all have fear. Fear of failure, fear of not being enough, fear of other people’s opinions, fear of covid.
In his book Way of the Peaceful Warrior, Dan Millman talks about doubt and fear, it’s an awesome read.
After recently reading more on the fear of fear itself, I found myself preparing for a recent presentation realizing I was not being fearful of not presenting well…I was fearful of fear itself. Trippy right.
Once we realize that fear is a part of being able to perform and it will always be there, you can notice it, like a cloud passing, name it and move on.
We can all face one opponent. If we can harness and leverage fear, we will be less likely to be outnumbered. In fact, if you can talk openly about your fear with others, you can outnumber fear.
The kick in the pants you need. Sign-up for a better start to your work day.
