Creativity without fear

How many good ideas have you left uncreated?

How many times have you left someone else earned a lot of money with a product that you thought wasn't good enough for the market?

The reality is that you were afraid. What ever you choose to justify not taking action, it is all come down to being afraid.

How can we learn to go over our fear so we can be as successful as we should be?

-         The first thing to do is to acknowledge there’s a fear involve. If you don’t acknowledge your fears, you can’t work on them
-         The second thing is to identify the fear. Don’t skip this step.
-         The third thing is to understand why you have that fear. You need to understand the root of that fear. This is one of the hardest parts. On top of that fear, there’s a lot of justification that has been put there. For most of us, justifications are seen as good. But, when we think about it, we can understand that they’re just tools to not taking action and face our fear.
-         The last thing is to face your fear. Among all these steps, this is the hardest one. Look at all the people that are successful, they all do what most won’t. If you want to be among them, you’ll have to face your fear.

 This is not a miracle process! The stronger the fear, the harder it will be to overcome them. You could be in need of the help of someone else to take care of them.

“Action is the foundational key to all success.”
 - Pablo Picasso

Take action to get out of the fear zone. It’s better to start and work on it then to put it on the side for another day. Taking action now will make all the difference in the end.

“To fight fear, act. To increase fear - wait, put off postpone.”
 - David Joseph Schwartz
