Does Fear Prevent You From Starting/Reaching Your Goals?
I posted this on FB, but I wanted to go into a little bit more depth. Over the past three weeks, I have spoken with close to 150 people who have considered committing to our Killer Kurves 12 week lifestyle transformation program, which just happens to cause people to lose a lot of weight in the process.
To qualify, a person must need to lose 40-200 lbs of fat, and for many, committing to the program is one of the scariest things they could ever think to do.
Fortunately, we have 97 people who are going to face those fears and start our 12 week program.
So many let fear and other excuses rob them of their Transformation, and 6 months from now they will be in the same situation or even worse.
Wish you could commit to things despite fear?
He shares a powerful story about skydiving. We both share a similar belief about fear and it is why I believe everyone should skydive at least a couple times in their life. It is extremely empowering and transformational.
I wish I had a magic formula for you to use to overcome fear and commit, but I don’t.
Nike has it right… Just do it.
Some of the most magical and memorable moments in my life came when I felt a lot of fear but just did it.
Here are a couple that come to mind over the past few years…
-Proposing at the finish of Ironman
-Going 7 figures into debt to invest in the building for the Transformation Center
-Signing up for Ironman
-Taking my first swim lesson
-Speaking in front of hundreds of people
-Asking a girl I had a huge crush on out on a date
-Traveling alone to Africa
-Committing to do a fitness model runway show
-Going 50 plus mph on my tri bike
The list could continue to go on but in all these situations I had a pit in my stomach and in some cases got sick to my stomach. Once you make the commitment and take that step, you find the only regret is that you didn’t do it sooner.
