I’m known for having a ‘potty mouth’
But the ‘F’ word in question today?
Isn’t the ‘F’ word that you’re thinking of, mon ami
I’m actually here, to talk about FEAR
(And I may even rhyme whilst doing it)
From an evolutionary standpoint?
Fear is essential
It’s a defence mechanism
And being ‘afraid’ of razor-toothed predators…
Is how our ancestors survived during the ‘hunter-gatherer’ years
(Or so I’ve been told)

Life is pretty ‘cushy’ in comparison
In fact, we live in the SAFEST time in human history
(Despite all of the sh*t going down in some parts of the world)
Our brains are still ‘wired’ to look out for threats
And in the absence of ‘real’ threats with sharp teeth?
We tend to focus on things that, in reality, aren’t that ‘scary’ at all
Take business for example
Obviously, there are risks involved
And most businesses DO fail
But the reason most businesses fail, is because MOST business owners don’t know how to market themselves
Unfortunately, some business owners DO know how to market themselves…
And they STILL fail
They’re scared to do the work that’s required…
Because they’re scared of what other people will think of them
I used to suffer from this, myself
But then I discovered how to STOP being afraid
And that, my friend…
Is to take ACTION
If you spend ALL of your time living in your head, worrying about the future?
Nothing gets done
But when you take action?
You actually start to LIVE in the present
And that’s when you can actually start to make some PROGRESS
Give it a go today
Pick ONE thing that you’ve been putting off
(Even if it’s something small)
And make a START
It’ll seem a LOT less ‘daunting’ once you do
I can guarantee it
