Building Resilience in Business, Relationshis, and Life

Be AWARE to Overcome Fear

Overcome Fear and Increase Your Profits by Being AWARE by John Thurman
 
I am excited about today’s blog; Mark Tyrell has taken a tool that I have heard about before and has crafted it into a handy acronym. By adding this tool to you toolbox, you will find new, practical, fresh ways to push back fear and become more profitable.
 
Before I give you this great tip from Mark Tyrell, I wanted to give you a reminder that while all of us want to be profitable with all of our business ventures, there is more to profit than dollars and cents, nickel and noses. Jesus says in Matthew 16:26 – And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose you own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?
 
I want to be profitable, but I also want to be balanced. Building a business is hard work, and if you and I are not careful, it can consume us. One of the best was to maintain that balance is to be productive in your relationships, your friendships, and your personal charity.
 
Next time you feel you gut tightening or you thoughts racing try these handy tips.
 
A – Accept the anxiety. Don’t try and fight it. 
 
W – Watch the anxiety.  Just watch it when you notice it, scale your level of fear and start to breathe longer on the out breath. (A great free app – Tactical Breather – it is a great tool to help you master the breathing technique)
 
A – ‘Act normally.’ Continue to do what you are doing and behaving as if nothing is different. This type of activity helps keep the brain calm.
 
R – Repeat the above steps often if necessary.
 
E – Expect the best. One of the greatest feelings in life is the realization that you can control fear more than you thought possible.
