Emotional Intelligence

Overcoming Your Secret Fears


Your secret fears. Do you have fears you keep secret?

Secrets are emotional poison.

Have the courage to free yourself from your secret fears, gain more confidence and self-esteem.

What is it you are afraid people find out about you? Think creatively about how to deal with your fears, just as Dan did – the businessman we told you about in our previous blog.

What can you do to free yourself from your secrets?

Self-evaluation – Get comfortable being uncomfortable

Score yourself on each question on a 1 to 5 scale in which:

1 = never/almost never

2 = seldom

3 = sometimes

4 = often

5 = almost always/always

  • When choosing between a project you can do with ease and one that will force you to learn, grow and change, you choose the second one. __
  • If you asked your colleagues how often you choose to take on the tough challenges when they arise, what would they say? __
  • In your personal life, you look for opportunities, even great opportunities to challenge yourself so you learn, grow and change.__
  • If you are physically active, you like pushing yourself hard enough to experience physical discomfort during your workouts.__
  • You welcome change.

Fearless Leaders often push themselves beyond what others would consider their limits, and stay focused on their vision and long-term goals. This is an important aspect getting comfortable being uncomfortable.

How can you get comfortable with being uncomfortable?

Use these techniques to learn, grow, improve and step out of FEAR.

Let me know what you come up with – I’d love to hear how you face fear.

Thank you for sharing.
