Six years ago I jumped into the idea of making my dreams into reality, I let go of my fears and started my coaching business. It was exciting and scary at the same time. And because I listened to my heart, I’m still here now, living my dreams.
But recently, I had an experience I’m not proud of, fear took over me. The regret I had came from the fear I felt right at that moment. It goes to show that even when you are involved in mindset work on a regular basis, you can still get bricked and blinded by your own thoughts of fear.
In this episode, I would like to share with you how fear took control even if it was just for a moment. And I would also like to share how I was able to conquer my fear, dared to do it, and came out stronger six years after I decided to accomplish my life’s mission – to help women uncover the thinking errors that prevent them from success, in ALL areas of life.
When Fear Takes Over
I’ve been looking forward to being coached by a specific coach who just blew my mind with the kind of work and service that she’s putting out into the world. And not only is she doing that in such a beautiful and empowering way, she’s helping many other life coaches get to that point. I listened to her podcast and applied for her Mastermind group.
Two days later, I received an email that I got accepted! I was over the moon but suddenly it was replaced with fear. Why? Because it finally realized what I’ll have to commit to, especially having to pay the full amount of $25,000 coaching fee. Although I knew that coaching is really an investment and expensive, I was still haunted with the question – Can I spend that much money on coaching? Will I get the results I want? And because of fear, I declined.
The very next day I woke up with regret. I realized it was the fear of failing that got me. I had an opportunity to be coached by the greatest but I let it go. I knew that if I wanted to grow, if I wanted to push the limits of what I am capable of, I would also need to coach myself out of this illusion that I need to have a guaranteed success lined up at the end of that outcome. I’m not proud of it, but it definitely brought me back to regret.
When You Let Go Of Fear
Before coaching, I was employed and in a good position. It was a high paying job and I manage people. However, as time went by I felt unhappy. I wasn’t able to have my own ideas, I can’t be spontaneous, and I can’t be creative. That brought me to a question – What should I do next? I jumped on a call with a life coach for half an hour. And I had a vision of what I will be doing, how I will be helping, and that was the beginning of it all.
I planned on seeing one client once a week in November of that year. I thought there wouldn’t be anyone needing coaching but it turns out people wanted to talk to somebody during the dark cold months of fall and winter. One evening became two, three, then four. By that time I knew I could sustain it.
I had moments of doubts, and my manager even laughed when I told her I would resign to pursue my coaching career, but I did it anyway. I decided that although I could fail, there were still enough chances that I could succeed. And so even though I had zero guarantees, I decided to do something, which was to fuel my courage.
From Fear To Results
After six years I can proudly say I have helped hundreds of women. There are about 3,000 of you listening to my podcast, And whenever I launch a coaching program, there are people interested. The best part of it is that clients’ lives are transformed. I bumped into a client days ago, and she hugged me and told her company I changed her life. It was a privilege but I also believe it was not me, it was her who changed her life because she took action.
And this is what mindset can do. If you let go of your fear and limiting beliefs anything is possible. That is how powerful a mindset can be.
What I Have Learned
So what have I learned over the last six years? I’ve learned that everybody can build courage. I learned that fear will never leave my life, but that I can do things with fear and all. When I do that, I gain a new sense of self respect and self pride that I wouldn’t have had if I had not done the things I’m afraid of.
I have also learned that consistency is the mother of success, that there is nothing that you can do consistently that will not yield results.
Another thing I learned is less is more. I wanted to help everyone in every possible way for the last five years, but the more you do the less you will achieve and it can even leave you exhausted.
Also, I learned about real connection. The more I connect with myself, the more I get to know who I am, the more authentic I can be, the better I can connect with others.
And lastly, I’ve learned to celebrate every win. Whether it’s a small win or a big win, you need to celebrate it. It taps into gratitude and in turn taps into abundance. Everything in your life is a big deal.
