Let's admit it, we all face FEAR in these uncertain times. It might be directly related to how fast the novel coronavirus is spreading or whether you have a job by the time this pandemic end. For others, it may be dwindling income, health issues or possibility of closure of the business you have built over the years.
Like everyone else, I feel FEAR too. As a keynote speaker, no matter how confident I look when I go on stage, FEAR is constantly present. This is especially so when I speak on a new topic or concept that I am unfamiliar with crowds of thousands. I have asked many of my fellow inspirational speakers in Singapore and they also admit to the same feeling.
We try to get rid of FEAR, but it is often not possible to do so. No matter how you try, the feeling is still there. This is because FEAR is a protective mechanism that shields you from potential harm. It is a natural reaction.
The trick is to channel FEAR into EXCITEMENT. To do that, we must first understand that FEAR is normal. Even pros who are the best in their fields have FEAR. Then, we must embrace it with an open heart and use its power to our advantage. Utilize it to energize our dreams and visions as leaders, managers, entrepreneurs or professionals.
We cannot lock FEAR out of our minds. Become friends with FEAR, understand it and you will unleash potential you never thought possible, even in these difficult times.
