Favorite Posts for Overcoming Fear and Doubt

We all experience personal and professional fears and doubt, that’s normal. It is what we choose to do about overcoming the obstacles and challenges that makes the difference between success and disappointment. Here are three of my favorite empowering blog posts.

As a woman in business, have you ever felt overwhelmed by fear – so much so that it prevented you from doing something you wanted to do? Believe it or not, this is a common problem faced by many people daily.

Fear has the power to hold you back from taking risks, following your dreams, or becoming successful at anything you attempt to do. If you allow it to control you for long enough, it can eventually erode your quality of life and keep you locked in a prison of inactivity.

Let’s take a look at belief systems. Your belief system regarding sales, selling and salespeople is tied closely to your perception of how others will react when asked to make a buying decision. Mental and emotional “truths” learned from childhood and adult experiences have formed negative and positive attitudes about selling and buying.
