Dealing with Fear: Why Fear Can

Anxiety Relief Doesn't Help Your Business
How to Overcome Fears and
Your Online Guide for Getting Unstuck
and Living the Life You Want to Live
By Molly Gordon, MCC
Of all base passions, fear is the most accursed.
Chances are that you are reading this page because you
know that fears keeps you stuck in at least part of your life, part of
the time. As a coach, I know that fear is responsible for much, if not
most, frustration and failure. When my clients learn to work with and
overcome their fears and anxiety, they step into a world of virtually
unlimited possibility and satisfaction. I love witnessing the transformation
that occurs when fear and anxiety stop running the show.
This guide outlines four principles that have freed dozens
of my clients and hundreds of readers of my newsletter from crippling
fear. Applying these principles will empower you to understand fears and
anxiety and to choose how you respond to them, creating a space for greater
meaning and prosperity in your life.
I hope you'll share your experiences with me by emailing
your personal stories about overcoming fears and anxiety and how you set

How to Use This Guide
You'll get the most value from this guide if you follow
- Read one principle at a time, re-reading it as needed until you
feel clear about the principle.
- Do the exercise in each section before moving on to the next step.
It will deepen your learning if you keep a written record of the exercises.
- Gremlins are the natural allies of fear and anxiety. You can spot
a gremlin by listening for critical, sarcastic and skeptical inner
commentary. Notice what your gremlins are saying to you as you read
and work the exercises. Jot down their most common comments. Acknowledge
these and choose to move forward anyway.
- You can deepen your understanding and develop your facility at applying
these principles by keeping a Getting Free from Fear journal. Make
a commitment to yourself to journal every day for 21 days. Each day
note how fear showed up, identifying the
type of fear (Principle 3), exploring how you may have amplified
it (Principles 1 and 3), recording how it shows up in your body (Principle
2) and naming ways to move through it (Principle 4). You can download
and print this
worksheet to support your progress.
- Have faith. Call on whatever form of Higher Power you believe in,
asking for insight, support, and grace to overcome your fears and
- Practice. The way you respond to fear is the result of billions
of internal messages (you say 50,000 things to yourself every day
of your life!). It will take some time and some repetition to shift
your patterns. Be patient, be persistent. You will succeed.
