The other day I was going through Ray Higdon's course on Fear and Procrastination and thought I would share with about FEAR.
We all go through fears in our lives and in our business, there's just no getting around that!
How we handle those fears is what makes us who we are or who we can become.
First off I can tell you that if you have not gone through Ray's Course then you are really missing out. It is my opinion that everyone NEEDS to go through this multiple times.
What I am going to share with you is my take on a very small part of the course.

MLM Mindset: 5 Fears People Have In MLM
Understanding exactly what fears you may be going through or others may be going through is the first step in conquering those fears.
If we don't understand these fears then it's going to be pretty difficult to overcome them and change that patterns that they cause.
MLM Mindset Fear #1 – The Fear Of Looking Bad
This is a pretty simple one that most of us have gone through. We just don't want to look bad!
I believe we have been conditioned from a very young age to worry about this one.
Make sure your clothes are clean, your hair combed, your shoes shined and on and on and on.
Have you ever hear the one…“Make sure you have clean underwear on, you never know when you might have a car accident.”
It's not that these things are bad we just take them to a place where they end up causing FEAR and we won't move forward because of it.
I love how Ray relates this to people making very bad decisions in life because they feel like if they don't they will look bad.
I multitude of issues are caused in life because of this fear – Looking BAD!
MLM Mindset Fear #2 – The Fear Of Failure
The Fear of Failure is very closely connected to the Fear of Looking Bad.
The reason we don't want to fail is because we don't want to be seen as a Failure and look bad to everyone.
This goes hand in hand with #1.
MLM Mindset Fear #3 – The Fear Of Change
The Fear of the unknown or Change is a huge one for a lot of people.
We get set in our ways, our environment, our lifestyle and how we do things and that becomes our comfort zone.
Getting out of that zone and making changes can be very scary.
I love what Ray says about this fear – “there is way more fear of succeeding, in the regard, than there is of actually failing, in my opinion.”
You've heard the old comment, boy have you changed. It's surprising how many people actually fear that and will do anything to avoid change because of this.
Without Change, there will not be a change in your results.
You need to examine your subconscious thoughts and see if you are the source of your nonsuccess because of your Fear of Change.
MLM Mindset Fear #4 – The Fear Of Rejection
Again this Fear is really tied to The Fear of Looking Bad.
Isn't funny how so many of our Fears come down to that same fear.
We don't like rejection because it makes us look bad!
MLM Mindset Fear #5 – The Fear Of Losing Something
Have you ever been in a situation where someone you cared for was trying to get better and deep down you were afraid that if they did you would lose them.
Or maybe you've been on the end of trying to better yourself and felt like your spouse is holding you back for the same reason.
It really comes down to the blame game.
It makes for terrible relationships and doesn't do anyone any good at all.
If you are going to play the blame game then make sure you are the one you are playing it with.
Remember you only have control over you!
You will have a much higher risk of losing something if you are constantly in the blame mode with that person.
MLM Mindset: Solution For Your FEARS
I'm going to make this as simple as I can.
The solution for your FEARS, in my opinion, is ONE simple thing and is ACTION!
You will be amazed at how facing your Fear and taking Action will change everything in your life.
Just taking consistent Action and pushing through your Fears whatever they are will be HUGE!
Start doing more in your business and in your life and these fears won't have the hold on you that they currently do.
They may never go away totally, but they won't stop you in your tracks and make things worse throughout your life and business.
I hope this has shed some light on Fear for you and how you can push past it and on to a successful life.
Again I encourage you to get Ray's full course and really get all that this incredibly successful man has done in his life.
