Welcome to February! Did you make any New Year’s Resolutions? Do you remember what they are?! Your fears may be stopping you from accomplishing what you want. It may be time to face them and see amazing things happen.
You may read about my speaking engagements in my newsletters and think that this is no big deal for me. That it’s easy for me to get up and speak in front of audiences. This was not always the case.
For most of my life the thought of getting up and speaking terrified me beyond belief. I was the kind of person who always sat in the back row and was extremely happy to be there! Never did I think that I would ever be a speaker.
That is until I started my business in 2000. I had known for some time how wonderful it was to live in an organized home and I wanted to share my knowledge with others. I figured that if I just told others about this new business I started that my phone would ring off the hook! It didn’t happen.
I then realized that I needed to get out and educate people on the need for organization and why they should hire me to help them. When a friend of mine offered me her spa’s meeting room so that I could hold workshops, I looked at her like she was crazy! Me, get up and speak? Absolutely not.
But, I am a very determined and stubborn woman, and soon realized that this was the best option for me to let others know about my expertise. As I started giving small workshops, something very interesting happened. Audience members not only began hiring me to help them get organized at home and work but also started asking me to speak to their groups. This was working!
I realized something else, too. By doing what I was most afraid of I took back control of my life and business and started making things happen. Was I scared? Of course! Was I happy that I faced my fear, took action, and saw results? Absolutely!
Fast forward 10 years and I now speak all across the country helping women think bigger and make something great happen in their life and work.
How could you help others by facing your fears?
Being able to face your fears comes from deep within you and you can be fearless when you realize how worthwhile you are and how valuable the information is that you need to share with the world.
