"To become a fearless leader in business and life, get clear on what you fear most and do something about it starting today."
Being a fearless leader doesn't mean that you don't feel the fear; it means you act despite the fear.
Fear is the #1 career growth and joy killer.
Be honest with yourself, which of these fears keep you stuck, anxious, doubtful, even when you know what you MUST be doing?
Fear of being judged.
Fear of making a mistake.
Fear of not being good enough or smart enough.
Fear of being found out as an impostor.
Fear of success.
Fear of hard work.
Fear of commitment.
Fear of letting others down.
Fear of being disappointed.
To get over your fears, notice what you're sacrificing now and focus on what you want instead.
Imagine your fears being a "mountain" that you climb to get to the other side.
When you get to the other side, you'll be greeted by your best and most authentic Self yet. Your highest Self can bring all your resources, uniqueness, and value to your career, relationships, and other areas of your life.
The other side of that [FEAR] mountain provides all your MUSTs, the things that make you joyful, and your most significant contributions to the work you do, the people and community you love.
On the other side of that mountain also awaits your non-negotiables, your desires, and the impact that will bring you the fulfillment you crave.
When you CHOOSE to focus on these desires daily, you'll cultivate and seize your fearlessness as a leader in your life--you will take action despite the fear.
My friend, the truth is that you can't have these desires unless YOU CLIMB THAT MOUNTAIN of fears.
And yes, it requires work. But the alternative is to end up adrift, spiraling, continuing to settle, feeling powerless, stuck, or worse, turning to vices or simply becoming numb to everything around you and throwing in the towel.
I won't let you do that--your life and your time are too significant and precious.
As your advocate, I'm taking a stand on your behalf. I know you can do it.
If there's ONE thing you would change starting TODAY to conquer your fears, what would that be?
Now, do it--do that ONE thing today, and again tomorrow, and the day after that. Practice "consistency" and watch what happens.
And don't forget, as you move forward, to be compassionate and forgiving with yourself and those around you.
We're all doing the best that we can with the resources we have--including you--which is why I'm teaching you or reminding you of these tools so that you can re-tool and grow your skillset.
The more you heal yourself from your fears and understand and own your unique value, your superpowers, and your skill set, the more joy and abundance you will feel--financially, relationship-wise, physically, emotionally, and in your career.
If you need support doing any of this, we're here. Consider one of the programs and resources below, and reach out to get started.
With love and appreciation,
Coach Ginny 💕
