Success Tip #3 of 31: What’s the Worse Thing that Can Happen?

Every day in January, I am posting tips to crush your excuses and get exactly what you want this year. Here is today’s tip:

“Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.”
Leo Buscaglia

Are you afraid to take risks? Do you have “roadblocks” that are limiting your potential?

For some, it can be a fear of public speaking. For others, getting on a plane to go to that convention. It can even be as small as not asking a question that you’d love to ask.

Instead of concentrating on your fear, ask yourself: “What’s the worst that could happen?” Knowing the worse-case scenario is better that walking around with vague fears that make you freeze in place without knowing why. Knowing exactly what can happen will allow you to think your way out of all potential problems.

Shine a light on your hidden fears by talking them over with a friend – or write it down. Get the thoughts out of your head where you can see that the situation is not so scary after all.

A walking around with general feeling of fear and worry without specifics is the worst thing you can do to yourself. If you feel that happening, catch it quickly and tell yourself, “STOP!” Go get a snack or take a nap and then try to pinpoint what’s going on.

Some scary thoughts can bubble up, but then you can work on reducing the risk. Keep in mind that most of the things you worry about never happen. Most of the time, you will realize that being bold has great rewards.

When my kids were small, they both took gymnastics classes and the semester ended with a gymnastics show that all of the parents attended. To soothe their nerves, I would always tell them that each parent is looking at their own child and not concentrating on them.

This is also true for real life adult situations. Everyone has their own problems and huge responsibilities to take care of and that’s where their attention is focused. So, never fear what others are thinking about you because they are probably not even paying attention.

So, the next time fear stops you in your tracks, take one step forward instead. Then take another and another until you have walked your way to a bold and much happier life.

My New Year’s Resolution in last year was to create a place online where I could personally connect with moms who want to work at home.

I knew it would be a place where I could give needed information, answer questions, and provide real opportunities to grow.

I’ve worked hard to make this dream come true – and it did!
