In this coaching call, Brian Troop talks about “action orientation.”

The biggest obstacle to taking action immediately is fear. Fear of failure, loss, embarrassment, ridicule, rejection, etc.

Action orientation is the internal motivation to get going immediately on any goal or project to get the job done quickly and one of the most important qualities of the most successful people in the real estate business.

The antidote to fear is self-confidence. Self-confidence is based on a foundation of courage. Courage is the key quality that leads to success.

How do you develop the unshakable levels of courage and self-confidence that overcome fear? Deliberately do the very things you fear over and over until the fear is gone.   

Thought of the day: “Within you right now is the power to do things you never dream possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you can change your beliefs.” 


The Control and Mastery of Fear

Courage is not the absence of fear, it is the control and mastery of fear.

Take Courage.
Self-discipline is necessary to deal courageously with fear induced events. Fear is natural. Everyone experiences fear. Fear can be used to guard against financial mistakes, preserve life and prevent injury.

So what’s the difference between the brave person with all this fear and the coward? The brave person is disciplined to confront, deal with and act in spite of the fear. The coward allows fear to dominate and control.

All fears are learned so therefore they can be unlearned. The most common to agents, which is a saboteur to all hope for success in Real Estate, is the failure of poverty and loss of money. The most common reaction to a fearful situation is the attitude of “I can’t”. Fear paralyzes action and shuts down the brain which causes us to have a “fight or flight” reaction. Fear undermines happiness and the ability to move forward.

Unlearning Fears.
Change behaviors with positive affirmations. Visualizing and acting as if you already have the quality you desire. The “I can’t” message is replaced with as emphatic “I can” do it. When you repeat the “I can” message with conviction, fear becomes canceled and overridden. Confidence and courage are eventually built in such a way that you are unafraid. Your visualization images will be accepted as instruction for your performance. Which leads to more success. You develop courage by disciplining yourself to do the things you fear over and over.

A simple formula guaranteed to work every time to reduce fears is the “100 call method”.

Fears decrease as you move forward and your confidence grows.
Two types of courage to instill:
1. Launch – take action- step out in faith- be all in without any guarantee 9of success with the high possibility of failure.
2. Courageous patience – the ability to hang and hang on continuing to work hard before you even see any results.

The key here is to deal with, confront and overcome fears. Resolve to deal with your fears by confronting the situation.

Mark Twain quote: “I have worried about a lot of things in life and most of them never happened.”

Final analysis:
The only real cure for fear or worry is discipline and purposeful action in the direction of your goals.

Get so busy working on your goals you don’t have time for fear to set in.

Thought for the day:
“Persistence is what makes the impossible, possible. The possible likely and the likely definite.”
