As the great author Napoleon Hill talks about, fear can cause people to drift. Meaning if I'm in fear then I may drift from who I am, from standing up and speaking up. How does one overcome drifting? That's not an easy one especially with all of the fear happening now, believe me, I get caught up in it often.
For me, it’s really three things.
Community is to have people who are of either like-mind and/or a peer group. Demographic, psychographic, and geographic which we talk about in the target market in EOS with our companies. But even for me as a person, it’s about finding the groups/people that I want to hang with, learn from, and learn with. For me, it’s the visionary forum, the parent firm, the integrator forum, and the entrepreneur forum. It’s a group that has a set way to meet, communicate, share, and learn together.
The second is safe space. “Where can I have a safe space?” A space not only where I can say things, ask questions, and share dreams/thoughts without filtering what’s going on in my head and heart; but a safe space for me to hear myself think. It’s also about allowing others to have a safe space to hear themselves think. If I keep things in my head I go crazy and start to drift.
Last is inspiration. Who are people that I can be around or things that I can do that inspire me and can inspire others? Inspiration helps me to bust through that fear. Within groups you’re able to learn from others and find yourself hearing great ideas or things you’ve never thought about, realizing how brave your peers really are, and even asking yourself what you can do next. That’s inspiration.
Again, what’s happening in the world is creating a ton of fear and it’s often caused me to drift and that is very frustrating. Now we need leadership because being in a drifting state is not necessarily what the world needs right now.
Community, safe space, and inspiration.
Those are a few ways to get out of drifting, to be ourselves, have a great day, and lead a great f’ing life.
