Step Into The Fear



A few months ago, I signed up to go on a coaches’ retreat.  It was going to be an intimate group, about 6-8 people, coaches of all levels of experience.

In the confirmation email, the course leaders offered an “experimental space”, the opportunity for participants to try out a coaching tool they hadn’t tried before, wanted to refine or get feedback on.  My first reaction, as I quickly shut down the email message, was that there was no way I was going to stand up in front of my peers and deliver a session, especially one which wasn’t tried and tested.  In fact, my reaction was so strong, I knew there was only one thing I could do.

I immediately opened up the email again and before I could think twice, shot off a rely saying I would love the chance to run a new session on visioning the future.

The result?  Yes, I was nervous, but the session went marvellously and was described by one of the course leaders as “the champagne moment of the weekend”!

I have had clients who have been fearful of leaving a secure job to start up their own business; of showing the draft of their first novel to someone; of moving to a completely new country, to name but a few situations.  But each time, they have stepped into the fear and it has worked brilliantly.

Sometimes fear is telling you what you need to avoid - dangers like being eaten by tigers, falling off a high building, being hit by a truck.  And sometimes, fear is telling you to step out of your comfort zone and do something exciting!


If this has struck a chord with you and you want to find out if coaching will support you, check out how we could work together and get in touch.
