I know you feel it don’t you? Like me, you feel it in your veins, pulsating through your body. You’ve been driven by it, you’ve wanted it really badly. Your dreams and desires were staring you in the face, but there was something that was stopping you and holding you back from really going for it.
That thing, my friend is Fear.
Fear. The word and the feeling and the emotion that actually controls most of us in some form or another. Whether you are afraid of success, or failure for example. Maybe you’re worried about what other people will think and say if you do make it, or don’t make it.
If you allow fear to take you over then it can really stop you and it can actually control you. It can really kill the entrepreneurial spirit inside of you. Kill it dead.
And then you’ll just stay in bed that much longer and not get the life of your dreams. Now that really sucks, doesn’t it?
So, what is the entrepreneurial spirit?
It’s that feeling we have deep inside us. That feeling deep in our bellies. Deep in our hearts. It’s that sparkle in our eyes, you know the one. The one that allows us to dream, to really feel and to really be inspired to go for our dreams.
The entrepreneurial spirit is what gets us up in the morning, what makes us take the action we take in our businesses and what keeps us awake sometimes at night. You aren’t worried, you are planning, you are dreaming and you are achieving… or are you?
Do you feel the spirit inside you and then fail to take action because of Fear? If you answered yes, don’t feel bad. We’ve all done it. In fact, I’ve been terrible with it. I’ve really allowed the comments and opinions of other people stop me from achieving what I know in my soul I was meant to do and could do. I’ve destroyed perfectly good businesses because of other people’s opinions and I’ve allowed my fear to stop me and hold me back way too many times.
The moment my life changed, and I discovered the way to really harness my true entrepreneurial spirit was the day NLP waltzed into my life. With the help of an amazing practitioner or two (once I discovered the power of this, I couldn’t get enough of it), I was able to remove these fears from my unconscious mind.
With my fears gone, I was able to build my confidence and certainty and truly start believing in myself and my abilities.
When you clear out your negative emotions such as Anger, Sadness, Fear, Hurt and Guilt and any limiting beliefs such as “I am not good enough”, “I am not worthy”, and perhaps “I can’t have what I want”, then you are truly free to go out there and get it all.
Everything. Imagine it. Feel it.
I know you can, can’t you? With that entrepreneurial spirit running through you, and no fear, what could you do? What could you create? Who would you be?
Seriously, why would you wait another minute? If I had known the results of this stuff 20 years ago, when I had no self-esteem, no self-worth, and no self-confidence, I would have taken massive action then.
So, what are you going to do? I dare you to take action today, let your inner stallion run wild and take hold of your entrepreneurial spirit once and for all.
