Spoke 11: Let go of fear-based motivation by honing your focus.
Some of the most productive, focused people you know, yourself included, may actually be motivated by fear. In fact, many of us have unhealthy focus patterns in our own lives. Patterns that may be diminishing our power.
Let me also say that shifting your mind away from legitimate fear is one of the hardest things in the world to do, but it can be done if you set your mind to changing your fear- based focus into an empowering focus.
In Reinvent the Wheel I want to show you how I let go of fear-based focus, and how you can do the same. Instead of undermining my own power by imagining the worst-case-scenario, I enter situations with confidence in myself and in my path.
I mean it when I say this is on of the hardest spokes to master, but it is one of the most powerful aids to move you toward well-being and success. Up for a challenge?
