This week’s focus:
Fear is a warning – don’t let it debilitate you!
As you will appreciate, the notion of fear crops up repeatedly in the coaching work I do with my clients, at all levels from leaders to middle managers. Interestingly, over time I have received several posts on Facebook concerning fear including this one from a Jungian Page:
“The brave don’t live forever but the cautious don’t live at all.”
Most often, fear tends to debilitate us – fear tends to stop us doing what we might otherwise consider doing.
Here’s the thing, though. Fear is only a warning!!! Take the analogy of crossing the road: fear is there to ensure that we check for traffic – it shouldn’t necessarily stop us from crossing the road!
