This is how one of the most useful books I have ever read starts. Check out Susan Jeffers Feel the fear and do it anyway. In this book Susan highlights 5 truths about fear:
1. The fear will never go away as long as you continue to grow.
2. The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out....... and do it.
3. The only way to feel better about yourself is to go out ..... and do it.
4. Not only are you going to experience fear whenever you are on unfamiliar territory, so is everyone else.
5. Pushing through fear is less frightening than living with the underlying fear that comes from a feeling of helplessness.
In conclusion its not FEAR that is the problem just how we deal with it. What do you tell yourself? Can you handle it or not? Next time fear crops up try telling yourself - I can handle it and see how you feel.
journey. It may be that you are in a job right now where the feedback is non-existent, badly delivered and a negative experience. I have been subject to this in the past and so know how awful it feels.
Feedback is not a once a year thing, it should be there all the time. When delivered well it will motivate you and help you grow. Getting myself a coach was a real eye opener to the benefits of feedback done well. It was also a lesson in how to receive positive feedback as this was quite new to me. How often do you find yourself dismissing or brushing aside feedback? How do you response to a simple complement about how fabulous you look in a particular outfit? Often our default reaction is something dismissive like 'what this old thing'! rather than a simple thank you. Raise your awareness today and learn to accept feedback with good grace. If you would like some one to one time to discuss the benefits of a coach just get in touch.
