Prefer To Listen


When I transitioned from an employee to an Entrepreneur, I had variety of emotional conflicts that prevented me from taking consistent action to operate my business. I am sure you can relate to this feeling. From my coaching experience I learned that the emotional conflicts arose due to fear.Apart from having several fears, the following three types of fears made a huge impact on an Entrepreneur

Three Major Fears That Affect An Entrepreneur

Fear of loss: As an employee, we were bound by certain rules and regulations of the employer. As long as we followed these rules and performed well, we got paid. Our regular paycheck motivated us to work consistently. However as an Entrepreneur, you are your own boss. Even though initially you may feel very good to be your own boss, you must be prepared to pay for your mistakes and poor judgments with your own money with a possibility of incurring a loss.

Fear of failure: We are mentally programmed to think that having a job is secure (which is not completely true). Hence when we lose our job, we tend to feel helpless. When you operate your business, fear of failure is stronger because you put your reputation not just with one employer, but with each new customer.

Fear of Rejection: In a job you, as an employee normally work with your boss, peers and subordinates. As you get to know them gradually, there is hardly any fear of rejection. However when you operate your business, you must find ways to market effectively. You will have to contact several prospects/ potential customers/Service Providers. Not all of them will say yes to your services or product. Hence you must be prepared to face the fear of rejection.

Action Points For A Frightened Entrepreneur

It is very important to become AWARE that these three fears can affect you as an Entrepreneur and eventually, the growth of your business. Once you are aware, you can make a decision right now to take consistent action to conquer these fears. It could be by way of reading an empowering book or listening to an audio or getting Coaching or doing activities that can help you become a courageous and empowered Entrepreneur.

What does staying connected to my CORE mean to me?

To me my breathing is deep. When I inhale, I can feel the outside air connecting to the center of CORE body in my Solar Plexus.

Simple right…

But the benefits are profound!

Why is it important to stay connected to your CORE?

Based upon my own observations, I would like to list how being connected to my core serves me daily. You are welcome to test it for yourself and be sure to add your comments at the end of this post.

1. You feel very good, calm and centered.

2. When you feel calm and centered, you are in control of your mind.

3. When you are in control of your mind, you know exactly what you want even if involves doing a complex task.

4. Now that you know what you want, you are able to break the complex task in hand to simple easy to do tasks.

5. When the task is simple and easy, you are able to give focused attention.

6. When you have focused attention, any distraction is averted by your synchronized working of your left logical and right emotional brain.

7. When your left and right brain work in synchronicity, you are able to give focused energy to the task in hand.

8. When you give focused energy to any task, your child-self (That has wavering mind and needs constant attention) and adult-self (That is concerned and is required to be responsible) work collaboratively.

9. When your Child-self and Adult-self work collaboratively, you are now able to run your day from the feeling of courage, abundance and “We have it all” INSTEAD of feeling fear, scarcity and “What will happen next?”

10.As you can see, by staying connected to your Core, you are calm, centered, be in control of your mind, accomplish complex tasks with focused attention and energy with a feeling of courage and abundance.

Now it is your turn…
