There is only one thing that can prevent you from becoming the leader you should be: fear. Fear of failure. Fear of risk. Fear of taking a chance. Fear that you may lose a client. Fear that your staff won’t follow your lead. Fear that you won’t make enough money. Fear that the rainmakers might face a drought.
Ultimately, fear is an illusion. Any of these things can happen. But fear can be controlled. Replace your fear with faith. Faith that even if you fail, you can overcome. Faith that the risk is worth the reward. Faith that if you lose a client you will have more. Faith that your staff will believe in you because you care. Faith that when you do things the right way the money will come. Faith that the producers will keep on churning.
Don’t let fear control your firm. Fear is a choice. Choose faith instead.
