Feel the FEAR and Do it Anyway

Recently, I was interviewed for a PODCAST Show about female entrepreneurs in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region.

Delighted as I was to be invited to be a guest on the show, it was certainly out of my comfort zone!  My first ever interview on, for all intents and purposes, a radio programme.  Thankfully not a live one!

Yes I had butterflies in my stomach, sweaty palms and a dry mouth, all symptoms of nerves and apprehension.¬† More than anything it was the fear of the unknown;…..What was I going to be asked?….. How would I answer the questions?…. and ‘What ifs’ as I call them;…. ‘What if she asks that?’,…. ‘What if I can’t remember’…..

But as I state in the podcast, FEAR stands for False Evidence Appearing Real –¬†it’s all in the Mind and its a choice, you can accept to feel the fear or you can reject it!¬† I chose the latter as I wanted to accomplish the task in hand.

As a Hypnotherapist, Coach and Reiki Practitioner, I know all too well how important it is to use Positive Self Talk to motivate and create positive change.

Using affirmations helps to reprogram your thought patterns.¬† That particular morning a few were chosen – ‘I can do it’…. ‘I am a good speaker’…. ‘I portray myself succinctly and clearly’ amongst others.¬†¬†Plus¬†performing some self-hypnosis ……and the rest is history.

There is now a podcast out in the world to be heard by all….Goal achieved! Feel the Fear and do it anyway!

Thinking too much about¬†situations can¬†create worry, anxiety and stress in our minds and bodies.¬† To overcome these¬†emotions; turn the thoughts around, flip them on their head, look at the glass half full,…which creates a positive out of a perceived negative.

State your intentions about what you desire to happen in your life, then just allow the Universe to take over.

Remove the control from the scenario!¬† It’s the control that also produces the fear and the ‘What ifs’.¬† Allowing things to just happen, that’s the Key.

There’s the old saying, ‘What will be, will be’, whether you worry and stress about it or not!¬† So let it go….breathe in Love and exhale Fear.

Nicholla Henderson-Hall (from The Learning Curve) and I discuss many topics in the podcast; entrepreneurship, what it’s like to be an author, how to achieve your goals and parenting amongst other delights – click HERE¬†to have a listen and share with others who may need that extra bit of motivation.

EnJOY and remember, remove the FEAR….it freezes you from moving forward with your life and living your dreams.
