What are you afraid of?

You want to be more open with people,

You want to tell your friends or work colleagues about your life,

But you’re afraid to.

You believe that it you speak openly then they won’t like you, or maybe they’ll think you’re weak (or something else negative).

You’re hiding yourself.

And it’s so incredibly hard isn’t it?

I wanted to do a video blog and fear seemed a good topic to choose because it’s my first video to camera and I could easily have talked myself from worry to fear in no time at all.

If you watch (it’s just over 3 minutes), you’ll find out what it is about fear that keeps you stuck and I’ll explain how you can start to re-train your brain so you can kick fear into touch.

To quote the fantastic book by Susan Jeffers I ‘felt the fear and did it anyway.’ And I can say that, whilst the ‘doing’ was stressful at times, I learned so many things and feel so much better for having worked through my fear.

So this week, what fear will you start to change?

Over to you

  1. Great post and video, Lesley! Thanks for modelling so splendidly the art of ‘feeling the fear and doing it anyway’.

    And a great tip to recall a time when we felt the fear, did it anyway and it went really well – there’s such a fantastic feeling and sense of achievement afterwards, and possibly a small part of us wondering what all the fuss was about in the first place ;).

    Video is such a fabulous way to connect with our audience – I hope we’ll see more video tips from you soon.

  3. Well done on recording your first video!! I love your honesty in it and especially the bit you said that you were reading a script. The video was very authentic and real… It will get easier and easier from this moment on…I felt your passion and it was lovely to see the person behind the business and getting helpful hints and information along the way!!
