Quote to help us Make Money and Wealth about overcoming Fear

Every journey, particularly those involving making money, involve a decision. A time where we will go through the test which asks us "Is it really worth it? Are we really ready? Are we willing to do what it takes?"

Every improvement involves risk, and often fear. To make money, we usually have to overcome some fear, whether it be speaking to someone, putting together a proposal for a business deal, even risking some money. The thing is, while these fears are there, often they are not real. They simply stand at the gate between where we are and where we want to be, trying to stop us from going in. So what can we do? Jeffrey R Holland has these words of advice:

"Beware the temptation to retreat from a good thing."

Sometimes it seems easier to turn back when the going gets tough. But in this there is no progression. If you really want to make money, to lose weight, to find that relationship, you are going to have to do things that cause you to shake and feel scared. As my mentor Gerry Robert says:

"Feel the Fear and do it anyway!"

The thing to remember is why we are doing it in the first place. Why do we want to make money? This is why it is so important to decide what it is you want in life. Make it so important to you that fears don't matter. Making money, or whatever it is, has to be much more important than the feeling of fear, so that you listen to your dreams, not your fears. My mentor Robert Allen says:

"Feed your dreams, starve your doubts."

Let us all remember continually why we do what we do, what are we aiming for? This will help us in moments of doubt or fear to move on into the life ahead of us, especially when making money.
