When Fear and Anxiety Hit

One of the phrases I've been told most about business in the past 6 years is, "fear and anxiety are part of the game."

Being a few years into my business journey, I've learned how to detach myself from the general fears and anxiety that plague business development.

But alas, I am still human and still have days of doubt.

Well, today has been one of those days.

It feels like all the anxious thoughts come rushing in at once.

"Am I on the right track? What if this new product fails? What if my business fails?"

On and on the spiral goes... It sucks..

But then the craziest thing happened...

I got a message from one of my mentors around noon. Him, having zero idea what I am going through, told me exactly what I needed to hear.

"Are you anxious.. or is there an absence of meaning and enjoyment in your pursuit?"

It was a lightbulb moment. 


When I have these days, I can promise you I'm not thinking of my why or who I am serving. But that's the key. 

I need my why centred in my mind for times like these. I need to remember the value I am attempting to add to the people I serve. This is the only way to overcome my fear and anxiety.



If you got this far, thanks for reading. This post was more of an outlet to express myself than a business based one.

I'm sure a day like this will come again, but I know I can overcome it by remember what I am doing, who I am serving, and where I am going.

Have a great weekend,

Hayden Vara
