How Can High Performing Entrepreneurs and Leaders Effectively Manage Their Fears?

Mashup1-thumb2How Can High Performing Entrepreneurs and Leaders Effectively Manage Their Fears?

Listen to this episode (0:08:20)

This week’s episode focuses on managing your fear. You may hear me talk about something seemingly basic yet what you may not know, is how you can make the most of this to redefine your relationship with your fear.

Getting real with this fundamental practice has helped me face my fears. And if you’ve been following me for some time now, you’d know that somehow, I’ve always managed to plant myself in crazy situations where I am face to face with what I fear most!


Key takeaways:

  • Leaders have been led to believe that they are scared of failure when the truth is, leaders are often scared of success.The most important tool as a leader is to is to be with your breath.
  • Take a breath at that moment of fear to calm your brain. Breathing helps it settle down and adjusts your neurology into letting the rest of you know that you are safe. Safe to be yourself and safe to action on what you are supposed to do.
  • When nothing is being said, we think we need to fill the gap with words. When it is oftentimes in silence that a message becomes more powerful.
  • If Public Speaking is a challenge to you, try the Three Second Rule where you spend 3 seconds making eye contact with one person as you breathe and then move on to the next person and so on. It’s like having a one on one conversation as opposed to the reality of being in a roomful of people which can usually intimidate and overwhelm a speaker.
  • Breathing is most helpful in chaotic situations where the shock of an event often leaves you frozen and unmoving. Follow the rule of chaos where you intentionally take four breaths, and it will help you unfreeze and resume mobility.
