Using Fear as a Motivation Factor
By Johnson Cook, an EO Atlanta member and COO of Peach New Media
One of the side effects of pushing yourself to new limits, expanding your horizons and generally living life to its fullest is that occasionally you will sense the inevitable presence of fear.
I’ve never encountered someone who is immune to fear. I’m not sure it’s possible. If it is, I’m not sure it’s healthy. What I’ve found personally is that fear must be managed. It must be appreciated as a motivating factor, but you must keep it just behind you. If fear starts to take hold of you, it can draw you in and paralyze you.
Use this as a motivating factor and keep fear at arms length in the proper direction: behind you … and then keep moving.
