The notion of being fearless suggests that one does it on their own. To live fearlessly also doesn’t mean living without fear. Instead it means that you find a way to put a straightjacket on your fear, walk with fear in front of you, but now you are pushing it forward.
You see, as a champion you understand that fear doesn’t leave town or go on vacation. You live with fear and move forward together through every accomplishment. That nag is there, still pecking at your drive, but you’ve managed to get control of fear.
Beyond having fear as your success partner, you don’t have to get over fear alone. Every successful person deals with fear, some with great bravado, others with quiet strength and still others surround themselves with people who have been there, done that.
- Seek out stories or videos about champions living with fear or living fearlessly.
- Ask a trusted colleague to share a story about how he or she got over a fearful period in their life.
- Deepen your connections with others so at to receive and to give support through adversity.
