Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – Negative Emotions: Fear

Rich Habits Word of the Day

Bête noire – Enemy.  Fear and doubt were Tom’s bête noire in pursuing his dream.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

According to Dr. Carolyn Anderson (http://carolynandersonmd.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/8-Fears-Holding-You-Back.pdf ), there are 8 core fears:

  1. The fear of failure
  2. The fear of success
  3. The fear of rejection
  4. The fear of not being good enough
  5. The fear of scarcity
  1. The fear of being alone
  2. The fear of losing control
  3. The fear of being different or standing out

Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

Everyone feels afraid at some point. Any change, even positive changes like marriage or a promotion, can prompt feelings of fear. Wealthy people have conditioned their minds to overcome fear, while poor people give in to fear and allow it to hold them back in life. Example: 63% of the wealthy in my study took a risk in pursuit of wealth compared with only 6% of the poor. Why? Because the poor allow the fear of failure to put the breaks on pursuing their American Dream. Belief is the antidote for fear. Believing in yourself and in your main purpose in life will overcome all fears. Belief is like a lawn mower. It cuts down and removes all negative emotions that get in the way of pursuing our dreams. The good news is that belief can become a daily habit. Through the use of meditation, visualizations, affirmations and the Future Mirror strategy, that I touched on yesterday, you can condition your mind to overcome all fears.
