Holistic Entrepeneurs Transform Fear
T. Harv Eker says: “Fear is the most expensive habit we have.”
Those words rang true for me when I considered all of the barriers I’ve faced with starting businesses as a holistic entrepreneur.
Fear used to cost me thousands in asking for a raise, planning rates for my services and in holding onto people, places and things that didn’t serve me anymore. Fear can keep you frozen in a no man’s land unable to do it all yourself and unable to reach out for help.
When we start a business of any kind, all of our fears and anxieties come slithering from under the bed out into the open. Often glaring back at us with each step we try to take. Fighting is futile. Avoidance just fuels it.
Something amazing happens when holistic entrepreneurs say “YES” to fear
When we acknowledge fear with loving eyes and a full heart, it starts to melt a little. It’s been like a life long companion through thick and thin. In its own way its been trying to protect us. But it often ends up short-circuiting our path to greater success.
But there comes a time for us to stand up and “Not Fight” but to say “YES” and embrace it like the little child it often represents. Those of us called into the healing fields have faced enormous fears and challenges in our finances, health and relationships while we’ve managed to care for and support so many others. So, imagine if there were a way for us to transform our fears. After all, having a thriving wellness business requires our inner resolve as much as our outer actions.
Holistic Entrepreneurs Who Succeed in business face with their ‘stuff.’
If we spend our energy trying to dismantle it before we move ahead, we don’t. We get entangled in it and can’t get free. What we resist persists. So, when we resist it, we become the fear and it shows up in every business conversation, email and service we provide. What we pay attention to grows so we have to be careful not to water the weeds!
Our clients are interpersonal detectives. They sense who we are before we ever say a word. To draw clients to us, we have to get real and get creative with our fear management, so we can allow new dimensions of ourselves to shine forth.
Holistic Entrepreneurs Navigate Dark Nights of the Soul
“The only way out is through” is what psychiatrist Fritz Perls always said. I think he had it right.
One of the best ways I know how to get ‘through’ to a wellness business that rocks, is to use the ‘Access Consciousness (founded by Gary Douglas)’ questions. When confronted with yet another business tool that is enormously complex or intimidating, I call upon the questions.
I want to share them with you so you can allow the process to bring ease and flow into your client attraction endeavors.
It’s important to keep in mind that when you ask the questions, you don’t answer them yourself. You remove your monkey mind chatter and let the universe show you the way. Yes, I am very much talking about getting out of our own way!
Here’s 3 of my favorite Access Consciousness questions:
- How does it get any better than this?
- What would it take for ___ to show up?
- What would it take for _____ to turn out far greater than I could imagine?
Start using them throughout the day when faced with your fears and negative judgments and watch what happens!
