Fear Of Starting Your Online Business
- Have you ever thought about starting your own online business?
- How would your life look if you were doing what you love?
- So,……….. what is stopping you from starting your online business?
I’m a wife and a mother of 4, I never went to University or College, I left home at 19 for what then was my only passion, to go travel around Australia!
I never thought about my future, having a career or starting an online business, I was a free spirit and was eager to venture out into the big wide world and discover what opportunities it had to offer me!
Leaving my hometown in NSW Australia with a train ticket to Mackay QLD and $20 in my pocket (Lol what was I thinking). I had NO FEAR of the unknown and departed with just myself and my backpack. I knew what I wanted, and I went for it!
Once I arrive in Mackay I went to a backpackers for $10 a night and I took myself to what then was the CES, now known as Centrelink, to get myself a job.
I so desperately wanted to work on one of the Islands in the Whitsundays. So, I went in and told the lady just that, she said to me “Come back with a decent top on and a pair of shoes and we’ll see what we can do”, (I must have been pretty feral back then lol).
Off I went to St Vinnie’s and got myself a white shirt and a cheap pair of shoes. Now with no money left I went to another backpackers and asked if I could stay there and work for my board. They agreed and all I had to do was clean the kitchen at night, winning.
The next day off I went back to the CES, had an interview, and within a couple of days, I had a job on Lindeman Island Club Med.
I didn’t start for 2 weeks so I got to explore Mackay, made new friends, went sightseeing on the back of a Harley through hills and beautiful beaches, and probably too much partying lol.
The best decision I ever made. Everything worked out perfectly, just as the universe intended.
So, at what stage of my life did I lose that free spirit, NO FEAR kinda gal?????
- Could have been after having life experiences that weren’t so positive!
- Negative programming in my mind!
- Once I believed I had to always be careful and not take risks!
- Lost touch with my eternal nature!
- Stopped believing I create my own reality!
- Being conditioned with emotional responses that include fear and pain!
- As we grow into our teen years and adulthood, fear perpetuates and becomes a natural and learned response that we identify with.
When Fear Sets In!
As children we just love, we do not know dumb until someone calls us stupid, we are all equal humans until we meet racism, we are perfect until someone calls us fat, we take risks and play until we’re told to be careful you could get hurt, we are taught it’s a big bad world out there.
And there you go, fear and self-belief are instilled within us.
I actually have no idea when things changed for me, but I do know I am still that free-spirited, NO FEAR kinda girl deep inside and it is my mission to bring her back to life and create my own destiny!
JUST DO IT!
There is no other way to make things happen other than getting out of your own way, facing that fear and taking the first step!
No one else can do it for you, only you. Don’t be one of those people that get old and say “what if”, would you want to live with that regret for the rest of your life wondering.
Why didn’t I start my online business? What’s the worst that could happen! You fail! Get back up and try again! Fail as many times as it takes. Just don’t ever give up!
Easier said than done ha!
So, how can you get back your power!
What has helped me in personally redeveloping me and fear of starting an online business is Meditation. Meditation has helped me to gradually strip back the layers of self-loathing, insecurity, self-belief and years of negative programming which no longer serves me.
Meditation techniques can help to control and program your future life experiences. It teaches you to respond rather than react as to not keep adding more layers of fear and self-limiting beliefs on yourself.
You can achieve mental clarity, emotional calm, reduce stress, anxiety, depression, and pain while increasing peace, perception and well-being.
It can take some practice if you’ve never done it before as we all know it’s not easy to calm the mind sometimes with so much going on in our hectic lives.
It can, be learned and is easy once you get going. Even if you just start with 5 minutes a day and work your way up.
First thing in the morning is a great time to start as you can set your intention for the day and keep the momentum of your great mood going throughout the whole day.
I use a lot of meditation videos on Youtube at night before bed to help to reprogram my mind with positivity for the next day.
So, if there was anything I could do for someone who wanted to change their lives and fulfill their dreams, I’d say go for it. Don’t let the fear of starting your online business hold you back because anything is possible and most millionaires were once just like you and me.
I’d love for you to reach out to me and have a chat, maybe I could help! x
