Fear fascinates me. It let’s me know when I need to expand my knowledge, dig deeper in a subject, or overcome a limiting belief. I’ve found that the more you find out about something, the less you fear it.
That doesn’t mean I don’t have fears; just that I have learned to conquer the ones that keep me back from living my potential. For example, I have fear of heights. Truth is, I get a little uneasy just going up in a glass elevator or being on a high balcony.
So I made myself do some things to negate that, like going out on the roof of the World Trade Center and riding in a hot air balloon.
The horsepower in my Vipers is enough to kill me ten times over. So I took lessons from racecar drivers until I could race around a track at 140 mph with confidence.
The more you know about a situation and the potential outcome, the less fearful you will become. If you have read my "101 Keys to Prosperity" book, then you'll remember number 64:
The best way to raise your self-confidence is proper planning.
And once you have done that planning, you push your boundaries. Blow up the old comfort zone and create a new one. Until it’s time to do it all over again. Because that’s where the real breakthroughs live…
Now that doesn’t mean taking foolish risks. Only educated ones.
