While we often talk about procrastination – alot of what is behind it is our good old friend ‘fear’.
Fear is what holds us back.
Fear of failure.
Fear of success.
Fear that the worst possible scenario we keep playing in our minds will come true.
But the truth is if we can’t get past this FEAR – this barrier – we can’t get to where we need to be.
Nothing great ever comes from staying in ones comfort zone. And so it is true that to obtain a great life we must be prepared to BUST through our ‘Terror Barrier’.
One of my mentors, Sandy Gallagher, writes a great article about it …
As much as I love what I do every day, my transition from being a lawyer to the personal development industry wasn’t an easy one.
One minute I’d be very excited about doing this kind of work and the next I’d feel like I’d stuck my hand in an electric socket. My central nervous system was going berserk!
You’ve probably experienced something similar when pursuing your own goals and dreams.
Most people are reluctant to step out and act on a big idea for fear of what they will lose. Yet, if we’d stop and think about it, we’d realize the worst that can happen is usually not all that bad yet the best that can happen is generally incredible.
In this post, I’ll explain what’s going on inside you each time you’re about to step outside of your comfort zone. This understanding should help you defy the odds and step forward into freedom the next time you’re up against the terror barrier.
I hope you’ll read this more than once because…
Few people ever truly get this
There are two parts to our mind – the conscious or thinking mind and the subconscious mind, which is the emotional part of the mind.”
3 steps to becoming a wrecking ball on your own Terror Barrier
1. Do it scared. Just keep marching, no matter how badly your feet want to stay rooted to the ground. Refuse to permit this negative demon to control you, your emotions…your future.
2. Expect the enemy. Remember – the Terror Barrier rears its ugly head every time we attempt to make a major move in life into an area we have never traveled before. It’s as natural as day and night. Where before you used to let it stop you cold, now you can simply shrug and tell yourself, “Oh, there it is again. Well! This must really mean something great to me!”
3. Keep your eyes on the prize. Eleanor Roosevelt said, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” That is excellent advice. You may not know exactly what lies on the other side of your Terror Barrier, but there’s no question that once you get there, you’ll be that much closer to your goal.
If your goal doesn’t scare and excite you at the same time, you’re going after the wrong goal. Begin to visualize yourself successfully wrecking that Terror Barrier of yours. Mentally see yourself winning, and you will liberate yourself from the crippling emotional state that the Terror Barrier causes. Remember, perception IS reality!
