Job Board Detox Tip #11: Fight the Fear
Today’s job board detox tip: Fight the fear. Fear is a powerful inhibitor of our success. It slows us and it can even stop us if we let it. The job search and transition that you are in could easily not be your choice. Many times, lately, it is not. Simply starting a search that is not by our own choice is a challenge. Then, add all the elements of fear that can hinder and you have unmotivated job seekers. Then, I go and add this challenge on top of it! Sweet!!! If you have accepted this challenge I know you are a strong person. Even the strongest among us has fear. It’s how we face it that matters. To help I have a quick list of steps to help you kill the fear.
  • Name it.
  • Ask - Why is it here?
  • Ask - What do I need to do to tackle it?
  • Act to change it.
Find someone who can help you through it. Who is an encourager to you? Who can keep you accountable to do the action you need to take to overcome the fear? Call them and ask for their help. Be specific with them. Set timelines and go. Action fights fear! Keep moving! You can do it! Resource: Free Kindle edition by Julien Smith , The Flinch.
