Is Fear Holding You Back?

Posted on

Many people have goals (whether or not they call them goals), thing they want to achieve in their life for example relationships, work, family or business.

A huge proportion of those people will not achieve their goals for many reasons, maybe their situation changes, perhaps the goal is not right for them … or there are surmountable obstacles in the way that stop people in their tracks.

So why do people not achieve their goal if the obstacle can be overcome?  Well sometimes the goal is not right for them and they know it – or the fear of achieving their goal itself can be scary.

For example

  1. Losing a significant amount of weight and becoming more attractive to others can be scary for some people with low self esteem.
  2. Moving on after a relationship – starting to date again, worrying that the next relationship will end for similar reasons, e.g. cheating, violence, debts etc
  3. Working in a job that makes you unhappy – but worried to leave incase you don’t get another job – or fear of taking another job and it not working out.
  4. Business – setting up on your own and finding that you can’t get clients or sell your products

There are many situations where fear can hold us back but what can we do about it? Firstly acknowledge the fear then take action – books, coaching groups and 1:1 coaching are all great methods that can help you overcome your fears and help you move forward in life and in business.

My tips is:

  • Acknowledge the Fear – what exactly are you scared of
  • Rate it 1-10 (10 being really scary)
  • How ‘real’ is the fear?
  • Explore ways you can overcome the fear
  • Take Action
  • Celebrate you Success at overcoming your Fear.

There are some great books on overing coming fear and self doubt.

Goals – Keeping Focused and On Track

Posted on

Having set your goals is one thing but keeping focused and on track is quite another thing altogether.  If you are not working with a coach or extremely motivated to achieve your goal on time it is easy to lets things slip.

Often when we set goals we are inspired and motivate, keen to achieve whatever it is we want.  However it is easy to sit back and expect things to happen, before you know it often time has flown by and little progress has been made.  It’s not that we don’t want the goal .. just that it is not as motivating when having set a goal then you have to actually take action to make it happen

Most goals require some form of physical engagement, whether it be to write a book, lose weight, run a marathon, change jobs.  It takes a lot of thinking and effort to turn your dream goal into a reality and it is so easy to start making progress then become complacent or become side tracked only to find that time has slipped by and your not making the progress you had planned or have lapsed with the progress you have made.

How best to stay focused and on track:

  1. Write your goals down, make sure they are SMART goals and have a deadline.
  2. Next chunk down you goal into smaller, achievable steps – working on one at a time makes it less scary if it is a big goal.
  3. Chart your progress – it’s motivating to see what you are achieving as you go.
  4. Work with a Coach – or if that is not possible join a Coaching Group.  Meet with other people who have goals they are working on will help you feel motivated as you help and support each other.

If you are interested in our Coaching Groups you will find our sessions listed on Eventbrite
