The Power of Fear in the Real Estate Business
Most of us took the leap of faith to go 100% commission in the real estate business in pursuit of some vision of freedom or flexibility. But for many of us, there is one big F-bomb in the way—FEAR! Achieving any level of success that we set our minds to can be hindered by fear, because fear is simply a part of human nature. There is not a single person we admire that doesn’t experience limiting beliefs. The only difference between those who’ve achieved what we desire, and us, is the decision to feel the fear and take action anyway. And that decision is available to every single one of us who chooses it! In this episode of Pursuing Freedom, I want to unpack some of the fears preventing us from living a life of greatness with predictable growth in our businesses.
Fear of Failure and Success
Fear of failure is a common theme, in the real estate business and in life. Whether you are new or you’ve been at this for a long time, there is always going to be a fear. Fear of failure and fear of what people will think of us hold us back from setting big goals, and taking the necessary actions to make them reality. As a result, we plug away, always doubting, and then, when the business takes off (which it inevitably does,) we experience the painful trade off of time, energy, and even happiness for the busyness that comes with high volume. Before long, we’re either convincing ourselves to play small, fearing success and the sacrifice it requires, or we learn to play smart, and finally ENJOY the very freedom we’ve been seeking all along!
Fear vs. Faith
The fact is, faith and fear are the same things—they are both believing in an imaginary outcome in the future, that hasn’t actually happened yet. The only difference is that fear is believing in a negative outcome that is highly unlikely. Faith is believing in the positive outcome and acting accordingly so we discover the path to our desired results. As we head into business planning season, it is extremely important to recognize this. The voices in our head are just that: voices. They are not our reality. And if we aren’t careful, listening to our limiting beliefs can either prevent the materialization of our goals, or make it so we’re prepared when they do come to fruition. Fear is a powerful thing, but so is faith, so put your energy into the one that will help you achieve the freedom and flexibility you desire.
