How to Use Fear to Your Advantage
The invisible force surrounded him, squeezing tightly around his chest. His eyes became wide and bewildered.
Suddenly his mind raced with dark thoughts, his stomach churned, and he became engulfed with a sense of hopelessness.
This man had just come face to face with FEAR. Now he had a life altering choice to make, one that we all must face: Fight it off, or let it destroy his dreams.
You will never face a more worthy adversary than your own fear. It knows all of your weaknesses, and it will try to use them against you.
The thing about fear, is that it preys on your innermost demons. You can't hide these thoughts, because this dark force lives inside you. It hides in the shadows of your mind, eagerly awaiting the opportunity to pounce and create self-doubt.
Fear will manifest itself in many ways, and the more you feed it, the more control it has over your life.
If you want to be a successful online marketer, you must prepare yourself mentally to wage a personal battle against your inner demons and self-doubt.

In a nutshell, a professional is someone who does their job, no matter what the circumstances are.
They have fear just like you, but they don't let it control them. In fact, many professionals use it as a motivating factor to achieve their goals (I.e. fear of failure).

You must teach your mind how to react to negative thoughts, and push these thoughts away with positive thinking.
Fear is simply a negative thought about a future event, which often times is something you have total control over.
It is astounding how many people overlook the importance of these kind of courses. Most of the successful people I know, attribute their success directly to a self-help course.
To become a successful online marketer, it is almost a requirement that you think in a positive way. You must visualize your own success, even before it happens.
Remember, if you allow fear to control your life, you will have something much worse to live with:
Sadly, you can't control regret, because it is an emotion based on a past event. It is no longer something you can change.
I can think of nothing worse than waking up one day and saying to myself "What if..."
