Monday Motivator – How we React When We Are Down is the Key

If you have ever been down. If you are down now, please please understand that it is in these moments that success calls. These tough times are simply a test, simply part of the path to achieving our destiny, our brighter days, our calling!

Enjoy this great compilation that says it so well (6 min):

Fear of the Start

How is it that we have tried so many times to start that new killer business and yet we fall back, we shy away. Could it be that we that it just wasn’t a good idea after all? Perhaps it was but we don’t have the “resources”, (money, time, patience, commitment, drive, whatever) to actually do it. Or in Nike speak, to “Just Do It!”.

I think though that main reason is fear. It could be the fear of failure, the fear of success perhaps. I think it goes deeper than that though. The “fear” is only a manifestation of underlying issues like the responsibility to family (i.e the feed the wife (husband) and kids). The lack perhaps of self discipline. Maybe even, what will my parents say!

When it comes down to it, as we all know, nothing is easy, and no new venture is guaranteed. The thing we must always keep in mind is that many many factors go into succeeding in life, whether it is in business, relationships, what have you. One of those things is overcoming fear. The beginning of that battle is understanding where that fear comes from. The next step is of course addressing that fear. The subject of our next post.


I am amazed at the number of people who “have this great idea”, “just need…”, “Really want to…” BUT find all the reasons/excuses/faults in themselves, the system, whatever, and do nothing because of one small word, “but”!

Yes, there are always obstacles to overcome BUT, where there’s a will there’s a way. The main obstacle is not having the courage to overcome the obstacles.
