G.P.S. Motivational Series EP 8 – Overcoming Fear – Part 1

Fear is one of the main reasons most of us don’t move from where we are to where we need and want to be. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Fear of the unknown. Fear of being under qualified. Fear of success. Fear of… (insert reason here.) But most of what we fear rarely happens. And if it did – with some thoughtful planning and execution – we could overcome the issue. Ultimately, overcoming our fear is about PERSPECTIVE.

Watch this short video from my G.P.S. Motivational Series which illustrates the point. Then ask yourself, “How can I change my perspective so I can get a grip on my fear?”

Why Is My Life NOT Working?

 WHY IS MY LIFE NOT WORKING?

Have you ever asked yourself this question? When I turned 30, I had a bit of a mid-life crisis as I looked back at my life and wondered, “Why is my life not working?” Why am I not farther along in life? Why have I not reached my goals and dreams? By the time I turned 40, I had done some real self reflection and study and had come to terms with some things. Maybe the question lingers for you…

HERE ARE 3 TRUTHS I HAVE LEARNED SO FAR:

1.   There’s something I am NOT doing. There are things I know I need to do, but I don’t do them.

Enhance Your Public Speaking Skills!

The fulfillment of our goals in life HINGE ON OUR ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE. However, very few people are comfortable with public speaking. Yet, speaking with others is a critical skill that connects to every area of our lives! Whether we are talking about our dreams or giving a presentation at work, the quality of our interactions with those around us will determine the level of our progress.

How comfortable are you with your communication skills? Do you want to improve them?

As your Interpersonal Communication Coach, I can help you enhance your public speaking skills so you can be in a better position to seize life’s opportunities for growth, development and impact.

Today I want to share a quote about reaching your dreams and aspirations. It’s from my book, MOVE! Your Destiny is Waiting on You.

“Dreams don’t happen just because we want them to happen. They happen when we work towards them and take advantage of opportunities that encourage their expression.” – MOVE! Your Destiny Is Waiting On You

VISION + WORK = SUCCESS

We must do three things if we want to stand a chance at reaching our dreams:

1. We must have a vision about what we truly want in life. (The more detailed the better.)

2. We must work towards the dream. (Wishing alone won’t cut it.)

3. We must be willing to take reasonable risks towards opportunities for our dreams. (Our dreams don’t grow while we stay in our comfort zone.)
