How to Handle Fear

Posted by: Rod Kurtz on December 25, 2008

We all worry, and today’s business climate doesn’t make worries any easier to avoid. Worrying is little more than trading your peace of mind for self-inflicted negativity about the future. It’s needless, and the cost of that trade-off is simply too high. Take a hard look at what you’re worried about today, identify your underlying fear, then let the feeling pass through you like a wave. Once fear’s peak has passed, you can have the courage to change what you can, and the serenity to accept whatever remains.
