Overcoming fear is one of the key ways to become successful.  Fear is something built into our human body.  The whole idea of fear is self-preservation.  In the bush, it keeps you safe from lions, tigers and bears.  But in the information age we live in, fear can be deadly.  It can keep you from achieving, succeeding and aggressively pursuing your dreams.

Where do you want be?

If you want to change your life and accomplish more, become happier, improve the quality of your finances and relationships, you need to eliminate fear.  Taking chances and accepting risk is the only way to achieve excellence.  Don’t be afraid to push against the lid that is keeping you within your comfort zone.  In order to gain more confidence and create deeper relationships, gain more time for the things you enjoy and increase your financial success you need to push through obstacles.  More often than not, you are the biggest obstacle and fear is the thing keeping you stuck in the mud.
Time Management

Be consistent

The only way to eliminate fear is by practice.  Fear is always there. It is part of the primitive human brain.  However you can recognize its existence and put it back on the shelf to gather dust.  If you are consistent with going after your goals you will come face to face with fear over and over again.  Practice your response to fear.  Say “Thank you for your concern, but I am fine.”

 

Take consistency to a new extreme.  Make an effort in every facet of your life.  Make sure your mood corresponds with who you want to be.  Dress for success and ask others for guidance on how you are coming across.  Convey your goals by modeling the behavior and image of the person you want to become.  Your life is a stage.  Make sure you are ON and don’t let fear of what others think, your doubting mind, or past failures keep you from sabotaging the person you know you can be.

Do not apologize for who you are

Be who you want to be.  Love it.  Unlike animals of the wild, we can change our stripes.  We don’t have one outfit of fur.  Great leadership is a skill we can obtain.  Great confidence is within our grasp.  We can have deeply satisfying relationships with friends, family, lovers, clients and coworkers.  If we focus on what we want to achieve, go after it and get it.  We can have greater time for the things we love to do. Greater power, wealth and freedom are within our grasp at any time.

You are your own champion.  To achieve excellence be brave enough to face fear and come out ahead.  Conquer fear and conquer your life.

Time management is the key to success.

Time management is all about learning the keys to mastering your own time.  You are the master of your own time.  You decide who you want to spend time with, what activities you want to focus on, and what conversations you want to have with yourself and others.  Yes, interruptions happen, but everything can be controlled and organized, giving you mastery over you own time.:

 

Time Management

Unleash your Power and Overcome your Roadblocks

Take a week and keep a log of how you manage your time

Lawyers keep track of their time.  Time = Money.  They know this an so they track meetings, reading documents, researching topics, etc. down to the 15 minute interval.  You can do this too.  Take a week and keep a journal of what you are currently doing, how you are spending you time and who you are spending time with.  Don’t edit it.  Don’t leave out the warts and bloopers.  We can work on more effective time management in the next step.

Analyze your time management results

If you want exceptional results you need to take exceptional action.  This is especially true with your time.  You are what you spend time on.  Look at what was the most effective use of your time, what gets you from point A to B the fastest, and what was a big time waster.  Time wasters could be activities, people, or just plain not having a plan of attack.  If you make calls or have meetings with people, spend a moment coming up with an agenda of action and set outcomes you want to accomplish from calls, meetings, emails, etc.  An ounce of planning will have greater impact and better results.  It will even reduce the number of follow ups that could waste future time.

Schedule time for interruptions

Don’t forget that you need time for people to tell you about problems and to have those impromptu meetings that can stave off issues before they become bigger problems.  Don’t eliminate the important interruptions just to keep to a rigid schedule.  Schedule time for these interruptions.  Train your staff and support people to approach you during the last 10 minutes of each hour.  Help them get to the point faster, and train them to be autonomous as much as possible.  You will become a better time manager when you actually manage and lead rather than doing all the work and making all the decisions yourself.  This starts with trusting others.

We are what we focus on.  No matter where we are in our life today, all the decisions we have made that have led us here all are caused by what we were focusing on along the way.  Many times we don’t even realize what we are focusing on.  Sometimes we are just overwhelmed with all of the influx of responsibilities and tasks and we lose track of what is important and what the bigger goals we really want to achieve.  The following suggestions will help revitalize your focus and get you back on track.

Last week the Miami Heat became the NBA champions for the second straight season. It is the third straight season where they reached the finals. In the weeks and months ahead they will be paraded around Miami, on sports talk shows, and eventually culminate with an elaborate ring ceremony. However, taking a “victory lap” should not just be for sports heroes. You can celebrate your own victories.  It is the reward for all of your own hard work and the contributions of many others.
