Welcome to the latest buzz around the Cynspiration Hive – This week, Hallowe’en week, we talk about something terrifying – Fear and how it holds us back! Grab your garlic and your wooden stakes because we are going to learn how to face up to it!
You can do this my brave ones, you need to dig a bit deeper so let’s talk about the weapons that you have in your arsenal to slay the monster!

What Happens When Fear Raises Its Ugly Head?
Fear is a universal human emotion. Every culture experiences it. As we approach Hallowe’en, we may even enjoy being afraid in controlled circumstances! Who doesn’t enjoy a good ghost story or scary movie?
Uncontrolled fear, however, is a different beast entirely! It can unleash a whole load of nasties that can plague us, torment us and lurk in the dark corners of our minds. My followers know that mindset is everything.
Fear can cause us to doubt ourselves, lose momentum, question our judgment and compare ourselves unfavourably. Just like the emotional trauma, I discussed last week; fear is an invisible menace that we only become aware of when it starts to manifest in our daily lives.
We begin to suffer from analysis paralysis, paranoia, and wasting our precious energy on things that don’t serve us and don’t move us forward as entrepreneurs or as people.
What can we do to stop the downward spiral of negative thinking and fear-based beliefs?

Make Your Own Magic
Everything that you need to be a success is inside you. Sometimes, because of past experiences, we don’t allow ourselves to claim the prize and we self-sabotage. Don’t be haunted by regret because you allowed fear to hold you back.
This time around, give yourself permission to believe in yourself, to aim higher, to use your superpowers because when you do, that is when the magic will happen!
Happy Halloween to the Cynspiration Hive – Until next time….Creep it Real!
Points to Ponder
