Fear Fear

347262327_2372e6b239It is unfortunate that are so many people driven by fear.  Fear of job loss, rejection, success, public speaking, being overweight, spiders, snakes, love - the list is endless.  With every fear that we have, we miss opportunities for growth, change, and knowledge.

Take a minute and write down your own personal fears.  I am sure that this is something that 99% of us have never taken the time to do.  Now look at that list and ask yourself why you have not taken the initiative to overcome those fears.  Do you not like your answers?  Have you come to grips with those fears?  Is this making you uncomfortable?

Now take that discomfort and multiply it by the number of people in your organization that are experiencing fear due to the culture you have created.  I would venture to say that you have never asked the question of your employees, since it is highly likely that you have not asked yourself this question.

You should fear fear in your organization.  Fear is what holds back the true potential in your organization.
