You can use your fear to succeed.
Failures experience fear, and successes experience fear. Failures allow the fear to burn up their dreams, while those who succeed turn their fear into fuel.
What does it mean to use fear to succeed?
Fear should cause you to focus
When fear comes, some people freeze while others focus. To succeed, you must put forth the effort to create a laser focus. See what can be accomplished, and then act with courage and conviction.
Fear causes discomfort
It is only when we become uncomfortable that we start to pay close attention to what is going on. It is then that we put the effort into finding the way to achievement.
Fear requires effort to conquer
Being fearful is a part of being human, but fear can be controlled with a strong and positive mental attitude. Others do it, and so can you.
Remember what Harold Stephens and Roger Bapson said about fear:
There is a great difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and a concerned person solves a problem.
If things go wrong, donít go with them.
