254: How To Overcome Fear – Turning “What If?” Into “What Now?”

Nov 8, 2016

Fear will hold you back. I get emails every single day from listeners looking for how to overcome fear. The fears are different, but the problem is the same.

  • I’m afraid I don’t have what it takes
  • I’m afraid that even if I’ll lose the weight I’ll put it back on
  • Fear of missing out gets me every time
  • What if I have loose skin when I lose the weight?

Fear impedes action and is fueled by thought.

In today’s episode I am sharing how to overcome fear and turn “what if” into “what now”.

How to Overcome Fear

Fear is a case of too much future & not enough present

Thought fuels fear

Use affirmations to redirect your focus when you’re focusing fear

  • I’m not there yet
  • That’s not real now
  • What can I do now?
  • What is my next step?

In this moment, you are creating the conditions of your future – is it the future you want or the future you fear?

“Thinking will not overcome fear, but action will.” W Clement Stone

Turn your “what ifs” into “what nows”

In today’s episode I mentioned a recipe from Bulletproof Executive for Golden Milk – I misspoke – it was Dr. Mark Hyman’s recipe &  you can find it here. (I omitted the stevia.)
