There is an old saying that says, "You Have Nothing to Fear Except Fear Itself!" How true is that?
Everyone has fears. What do you fear? Some people have a fear of the dark, some fear heights, some fear closed in spaces – What is it that you fear?
Did you know there are those that fear Success? That's right there are people that are afraid of succeeding at something! There are people that spend their entire lives failing because they are afraid of succeeding at something. So guess what – they spend their entire lives failing because they feel success carries to big a price tag. So they never really dig in and try to succeed!
What I want to do right now is give you a definition of FEAR that I heard some years ago. I can not remember where I got this now but it is the best definition I've ever heard. Are you ready? Here it is:
Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real! Fear will rear its ugly face and make you believe what is unbelievable. Fear can appear and make you see a false Reality, but Fear is never a Reality! That is why it spells out – False Evidence Appearing Real!
Let me ask those of you that Fear the darkness – What is in the dark that is not there in the light? The answer is nothing! We can imagine all sorts of things but where are those things when the light goes on?
When I was a little boy my mommy would come into my room and tuck me in than turn out the light (bedtime), after she left the room I would start screaming – 'mommy, mommy, mommy help me mommy snakes in my bed' . My mommy would come in and turn on the light and the snakes would disappear. Where did they go? My mommy would search under the bed, in the closet, dresser draws, etc. NO SNAKES! Were the snakes ever in reality there? FEAR!
Is not this the way we all do when it comes to success? We (myself included) can find all the reasons why it will not work! We drupe around in the darkness never thinking to just turn the light on so we can see the actual Reality of the thing. Do not believe the False Evidence Appearing (the friend who says you can not make no money doing that – get a job or this is a scheme, scam, etc.). The Reality is you in business treat your business like any business! Show up for work on time, learn what you need to do for your business to succeed and do what is required to succeed and you will.
There are 3 things that are REAL: Death (Hank Williams sang a song, "you is not getting 'out of this world a live), Taxes (Uncle Sam will get his share) and a High Power – Now that is Reality!
There is another Reality straight from the month of my mother – "Can not Never Did Do Nothin '!" The word can not come from FEAR! My mother also told me, "Son, You Can Do Anything If You Want To Do It Bad Enough. I'm asking you, 'How Bad Do You Want To Succeed?'
Do not let Fear cloud your judgment. There is all kinds of false evidence with an appearance of reality, but if you will turn the light on then you can see that what appears to be in the darkness is just an imagination run wild. Turn On the Light and See what is really there – REALITY!
There is no reason in the world why you can not do for yourself what you do for your Employer on the job. The biggest difference between the JOB and your Home-Based Business is you calling the shots – Not your Employer! The other difference is your Employer hands you that paycheck at the end of the week – Guaranteed pay!
Think of this for a second – What if all of a sudden your employer comes to you and says, 'Your production has been down pretty.' Do you think your Employer would not consider replacing you if he could find someone that would produce better results? Where is job security now? Talk About FEAR! ?
You have the ability to work at home in your spare time and build a business that could one day yield you a six-figure income. Will your boss on the job ever pay you what you are really worth? Which opportunity do you really think presents the most FEAR? Which Really Creates the Most Security – Which is False Evidence Appearing Real? Choose One !?
