It is said fear is “false evidence appearing real,” but sometimes it sure feels real doesn’t it? Is it possible in your professional and personal lives to face and overcome whatever is keeping you from living your dreams and becoming happy and successful?

I say it is!  But how do you begin? Andy Horner, Co-founder and CSO of Premier Designs Inc. shares: ‘after being in business for over 40 years and having been through six recessions, America may be down, but we don’t have to be!”  His keys to overcoming your fears and doubts are: “1. Trust God. 2. Know you have something to offer. 3. Don’t listen to negative talk. 4. Serve and care. 5. Give without expecting anything in return. 6. Believe you can do it. 7. Keep working no matter what happens: you’ll be glad you did!”

Sounds like a great plan for this Monday morning, ready to join me in following this wisdom from an amazing business leader who lives this, even at 89 years old?

Have a great week!

    Love that philosophy! Great man who is a great servant! Our desire to overcome our fear has to be bigger than what we are afraid of….and surround ourselves with people who can help us get there! Thanks for the reminder, Sue!

    Good thoughts! I relate in this way: Bravery and fear are choices, as are happiness and misery. A part of happiness comes from being brave enough and having faith enough to attempt new possibilities. The lessons learned from trying reinforce the value of bravery and contribute to one’s evolving happiness. Be open to attempting many of those Aha! Possibilities that arise from your imagination…you may be pleasantly surprised!
