How to Overcome the Fear of Success - Episode 88What if your marketing plan actually works? Will you have what it takes to respond to the leads? How will you deal with the objections and obstacles that might come up? If these are questions that go through your mind, you are not dealing with the fear of failure, but with the fear of success! In this episode I’ll define the fear of success, talk about how it can stop you in your tracks, and tell you what you can do to overcome it so that you truly can succeed!

The first step in overcoming the fear of success is to realize that you have it

If we think we’re fighting the fear of failure, we’re fighting the wrong thing! We need to understand the fear of success and realize that this is what we need to fight. In this episode, I’ll share some examples that will help you understand the fear of success, and I’ll explain why thinking like a child can be one of your best tools for overcoming it! Listen to this episode and join me in defeating the fear of success!

You don’t have to have the answers to everything

One of the reasons that we fear success is that when our ads work and all those leads come in, we’re not sure we’ll be ready to handle them. We might not know the answers to potential clients questions or objections and we’re not comfortable with that. The good news is this: There is power in not having the answers. Listen to this episode to find out what I mean by that and how you can harness the power of not having answers to actually build your relationship with your clients.

Understanding and practicing scripts can build your confidence as a Realtor

When I was a new Realtor, I absolutely hated scripts. But as much as I hated them, they really made a difference in my career. In this episode I’ll talk about how my thinking about scripts has changed, how scripts can be used for the client’s benefit, and how they can be a valuable tool for overcoming the fear of success.
