I conducted a survey last week asking small business owners and entrepreneurs to share what was on their mind about growing their business.. The answers were startling, to say the least.

Almost 80% of you are scared.

I mean really frightened that you won't be able to get the results you want. I understand that growing your business can create fear. It is a healthy sign that you are stretching, moving outside your comfort zone, and really growing.

This is a requirement for successful entrepreneurs.

However FOCUSING your energy on fear will keep you stuck, confused, and zap your confidence. You must feel the fear… and then do it anyway!

Let the fear serve as fuel to your dreams.

Do you know that fear and excitement are the exact same energetic vibration? In fact, you create the same chemical response, in your body to both emotions. It's your perception of the feeling, that dictates your experience.

Fear keeps you stuck, stops you cold.

Excitement propels you forward.

The choice is yours.

When you feel fearful:

1. Ask yourself how you can shift this into excitement. What about the situation is it that your really desire?

2. Make a quick list of things you are grateful for in the moment about this topic. You cannot feal fear and gratitude simultaneously.

3. Get into action, as if you were excited and knew everything would turn out for the best.

Practice this for the next 7 days and notice the change in your mindset and your business!
