Overcome Fear

There are several emotions, some are positive and some are negative. Positive emotions are always welcome like Joy, happiness, satisfaction, love, compassion and so on. Similarly, there are negative emotions. Fear is one of them and fear could be the most damaging emotion.
As I wrote in my earlier blogs that dream is the common factor among all the big achievers. And to achieve your dreams you have to consistently take actions in the direction which will lead you to your goals.
Now, many a times you will not be able to take action because of fear of failure. You may fear that you can lose money, time, reputation etc. Studies show that the biggest fear among people is people themselves. What others will say.  This is the most devastating thought which can lead a man to failure. But, the question is “shall it matter what people will say or think about you?” It’s your life; don’t give control of your life to others. It’s you and your family who are affected by your actions. You prosperity, your happiness, your health will affect nobody but it will affect your life and your family’s life. So, don’t fear what others will say.
The other fear is fear of losing what you are having today. If you work hard, you gain knowledge, apply your knowledge, it will boost your confidence and your confidence will earn you more than what you are having today. With commitment, perseverance and hard work you build your capability to such a level that you will get success. And the most important thing is once you build your capability and bring the required change in yourself you are definitely going to achieve your goals and live your dream life.
Other fear may be of ill health. But instead of fearing ill health take steps to keep yourself healthy. You can take care of your diet, take daily exercise, read good books and keep yourself in association of good people.
Action cures fear. Suppose you fear public speaking, take action. Whenever you get opportunity to speak in public do it. If you fear making your sales call, make calls on a regular basis. If your fear mathematics, practice it and the list can go on. These are facts and you can take actions to minimize or eliminate these fears.
Raise your faith in yourself and see how fear disappears.

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

Make monthly resolutions as you make yearly rsolutions

Like many people, I love making new resolutions. Today is the first day of a new month. Isn’t it exciting to make a new resolution for a month? But when I first thought of a monthly resolution my mind rejected it. One month, only one month what could i achieve in one month. I set a goal of losing weight of 10-12 pounds, year after year without ever achieving it. How is it possible to do it in one month? My dream list includes the purchase of a new home, a new car; it includes exotic vacations with my family. My dream list also includes substantial built of a portfolio in paper assets; it also includes completing my first book. It also includes running ultra-marathon. There are career-related dreams. All these long term dreams would take at least many months together if not years, hence it does not count a month. This was my thinking earlier but now, when I set daily goals, a month provides me with an opportunity to 30 times more than my daily time available to work on my dreams. There…
