Productive People Turn Anxiety And Fear Into An Advantage
It doesn’t matter what you’re afraid of, you can use the fear in a positive way. As a productive individual you can gather it up and use it to your advantage. One of the worst things you can do is try to ignore what you’re afraid of. Denying fear doesn’t help you conquer it and can cause you to make poor decisions because you feel ill-prepared when faced with the problem head-on. Instead, acknowledge it exists, explore where it’s coming from and outline what needs to happen for you to overcome it.
Many times, bringing your fear fully into the light of day by putting it on paper or saying it aloud will begin to remove some of the power. Take in consideration that most successful people don’t lack fear. They just manage to find a way to act and persevere in spite of it.
