Fear is a natural response that helps keep you safe. Unfortunately, it can keep you from pushing past your comfort zones and into new territories. When it comes to accomplishing your goals, it can construct a difficult roadblock. Whether it is fear of failure, fear of success, or fear of disappointment, if you allow fear to take over, then success can never be achieved. The good news is, fear can be managed. Using mental imagery, you can control your fears by creating and overcoming fearful situations in your mind. When you can visualize yourself overcoming your fright, you are more likely to be able to minimize your fears in real life.
When you experience uncertainty, it is likely because you are entering into the realm of the unknown. You often fear what you don't know. But uncertainty can be overcome with preparation and guidance. Create a strategy. The more prepared you are to accomplish your goals, the less uncertain the outcome becomes. Researching your goals and consulting trained professionals can help control your uncertainty.
To have doubt is to disbelieve or be skeptical. This obstacle is the greatest because you have to believe you can accomplish your goals. If you don't believe you can succeed, you won't. The mind is a powerful ally or enemy; which one it will be is your choice. You can overcome doubt by maintaining a positive outlook (focus on what you can do, not on what you can't), creating specific, measurable, aggressive, realistic, and time-bound (SMART) goals, visualizing your success, and putting together the right strategy. If you think differently, you'll be different!
