Conquer Any FEAR or Anxiety in 30 Seconds

A few years ago when my son was deployed to Aphganistan as a Black Hawk pilot in the US Army I had some anxious moments. War now became very real for me. To think that an enemy wanted to kill my son was very worrisome to me. I had never really suffered from anxiety before or great fear.

During this same year, my business went through some major changes and my income was reduced. That caused a great deal of anxiety too. I had to really resolve this issue. It’s not good to live in fear and anxiety. These emotions just don’t feel very good. It was starting to consume me and I know from prior experience, what I focus on, I find. I was giving life to my fears and anxiety and had to get back to peace and joy, the two emotions I do best with.

That’s when I developed a strategy to remove these emotions. With practice, I was able to remove these negative emotions just about as fast as I got them. Let me share my discovery with you.

Replace Anxiety & Fear with Peace & Joy

There are six distinct steps in the 30-second process. I’ve discovered that I can’t exempt any of the steps. Trust me, I’ve tried. In the beginning, using this method it would take

My Experience With This Profession

When I was in high school I really didn’t have a clue what I wanted to do. My dad was a plumber and his dad before him. My dad did teach me how to use my hands and I’m forever grateful for that. He said there were only three things I needed to know to become a plumber; “Poop rolls downhill, the boss is an SOB, and payday is Friday.”

Why set goals?

Goals setters see opportunity. Those that don’t have goals become skeptics.

Goal setters look for knowledge to accomplish their goals. Those that don’t never crack a book.

Goal setters are able to add value to others and make a better income. Those that don’t avoid helping others.

Goal setters are happier. Those that don’t never understand that happiness is something you create.

Goal setters preform actions leading to accomplishment. Those that don’t seek inaction and are always rewarded with nothing.

Goal setters are open to new relationships. Those that don’t avoid new relationships because they fear the worse.

Set goals. Don’t be one that doesn’t.

 

One of the best revenue models in America today

When I practiced as a CPA I specialized working with entrepreneurs of small and highly profitable businesses. These entrepreneurs were titled, “Rugged Individualist” by Dan Sullivan, noted business coach. I was one of them. We all worked long hours, took all the risk on ourselves and could never duplicate and leverage ourselves.

In time the “rugged” wore me out and I knew it was madness to continue. No amount of money would ever make me happy if I had to slave 60+ hour weeks with limited time off.

I searched for a better model and I found it.

The revenue model of network marketing (NM) works very well! There are five main reasons it worked for me, and millions others too.

  1. It supports anyone’s skill level, from none to expert.
  2. If you want to only be a customer of the products, you can still be rewarded with wholesale pricing.
  3. If you only want to share your good results with a few friends and family members, you can earn a little bonus.
  4. If you want to share with others part-time, you might actually earn enough, over time, to replace your full-time income at a fraction of the time of full-time employment. Many in this category earn $10,000 to over a six-figure annual income.
  5. If you go after it and run it like a full-time business, you can achieve a 6 or 7-figure annual lifetime income.

I started in 2006 as a customer of a NM company and over the first four years I was in the 3rd category. That worked well for me. I earned about

Daring greatly; what’s it like in the arena?

I’ve often thought why sports are a big part of American culture. Billions are spent on it annually. Fans flock to opinion talk shows and discussion groups are flooded with arguments why an athlete is or isn’t good.

As a fan I have my favorite teams. I have my favorite athletes. I’ve been on the courts and field of play. I’ve had fans yell for me and against me.

Perhaps sports are a microcosm view of life. Especially in the pursuit of owning your own business. Being employed for yourself, by yourself, completely independent as an entrepreneur is always scary.

One of my favorite excerpts from a talk is a corollary to entrepreneurship. It reads:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

(Excerpt from the speech “Citizenship In A Republic” delivered at the Sorbonne, in Paris, France on 23 April, 1910 by Theodore Roosevelt)

I honor all those athletes who dare greatly. I have little regard for the talking heads and especially fans who express disdain for an athlete as if to judge him/her for not making the fan’s team or perhaps the fan’s prediction look good.

I honor those daring greatly in the independent pursuit of entrepreneurship.

They are each to be honored and respected. Not the critic or skeptic “who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.”

Each of my heroes, an athlete or entrepreneur,  who “strive[s] to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”

Daring greatly is a way of life for some.

No wonder the athletes and entrepreneurs never hear the jeers from the critics and skeptics in the stands. Critics are everywhere only to watch (and judge). Critics are to fearful to play and dare greatly because they couldn’t take what they dish out.

The only courage is from those on the field of dreams.
