Hey Team...

Do you ever at times have trouble trusting your gut?

Maybe you see what other people are doing and feel like you should be so much further ahead than you currently are?

Listen, it is really common.

BUT, it does not have to be this way.

Yesterday, I was speaking to a CEO Peer Group in Miami and we talked about all of this....

It was great.

Intimate sharing about what is going on inside the heads of some really successful people...

And you know what?

They have fear...

They have hesitation...

They have doubts...

But, what they do that most do not is use these things as FUEL to make them better.

Hear me out...

That fear they have... well, that gets them to work harder, study their markets, understand the competition, and most importantly, look at their business from all angles.....

Their hesitation.. well, same thing.

They hesitate, take inventory on what is going on.. and then take action.

Oh yeah, the doubts.

Well, they understand that doubts act as STOP and YIELD signs.. They give you time to take a pause, gather yourself, and match up your thoughts, decisions, and actions against your mission, vision, and goal.

So, this is all normal.

Unless, you let it stop you.

If you let fear, doubt, and hesitation stop you... well, then you are toast.

You have no chance at winning in anything you do. 

So what can we do to help ourselves?

MINDMAPPING.

What is it?

It is simply writing down what is in your head.

Not a TO-DO List.. but rather the themes you have going on in your head....

Writing down the fears and concerns you have in your head...

AND, Most Importantly, writing down your WORST CASE SCENARIO...

This way, it is all in front of you...

And, at the top of the paper, write down your BEST CASE SCENARIO.

Got it?

Now that the thoughts and themes are on paper, you can study them.

Work backwards out of them.

Look at them not as YOU, but as a consultant, a third party.

Study these themes without the emotion...

When you combine emotions and worst case scenario, you get stress and anxiety.

When you combine emotion and fear, you get paralysis.

Got it?

So get things on paper.. study the themes, and then get real with yourself.

You will quickly see that IT IS NOT THAT BAD..

You are not going to die...

You are not going to turn to vapor...

And, you may even see how hard it is to actually achieve your worst case scenario...

And, for some, you may actually be relieved by your worst case scenario actually happening!

Got it?

Make sense?

Let's get to work!

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
