Going back to my previous post, I discussed that self confidence opens up many possibilities for businessmen especially in the field of multi-level marketing. One thing that hinders people from being confident with their decisions and actions is fear. As Napoleon Hill has once put it, fear is a demon and as such, we need to find ways in which to overcome them.
There are six basic fears stated in The Laws of Success including:
- The fear of poverty
- The fear of criticism
- The fear of ill health
- The fear of loss of love of someone
- The fear of old age
- The fear of death
These fears can be crippling for businessmen since each one, to some degree, hinders certain aspects of how we do things that leads to success. We need to recognize these fears as we experience them and then act upon thwarting its ill-effects on our psyche.
The most important thing to remember is that fear is merely a state of mind. We can eliminate these fears as long as we have the right mindset.
I think it is very satisfying to say that you are not afraid of being poor or of being ill or of death because you have done something about it. Once you understand that there are ways to alleviate these fears (and that while it does take a lot of effort sometimes), you can be successful.
