The Successful Mind Podcast – Episode 521 – Life Is a Dance Between Desire and Fear

Your success is the equivalent of what you can get yourself to follow through on. What you follow through on, is a “dance” between what you desire the most and what you fear the most.

If you let fear stop you, then you stop. If you desire safety over uncertainty, adventure, and risk—then you let that desire for safety stop you. The idea is to push to another level and break through the fear—because that’s the only way you’ll grow. 

In today’s episode you’ll learn:


    • Fear makes you instantly look at why you CAN’T do something—it wants you to look at the facts, the figures, and the past, which causes you to stop in your tracks 
    • How I learned to “recruit up” when I worked with a network marketing company—which means “find people who are more effective than you are and who have more influence”
    • How I was able to recruit doctors by getting past gatekeepers and trying a new approach
    • If something’s not working, you don’t give up—you change your approach
    • Most salespeople are very concerned about rejection; superstar sales people don’t care about rejection—they’re completely driven, money focused, sales focused, and they want to put numbers up on the board
    • Why sales people must be consistently resourceful to keep creating the numbers and the sales
    • Going into a fear state won’t make you resourceful


Every day, your job is to break through fear in order to get yourself to do what you need to do to become as successful as you want to be. The only way to do that is by setting a higher standard for yourself—and immediately taking action on the opportunities that come to you.

If opportunities don’t come to you, then you have to create those opportunities.
