The Successful Mind Podcast - Episode 546 - The Sly Disguises of Fear

The Successful Mind Podcast – Episode 546 – Mindset Monday’s – The Sly Disguises of Fear

We often talk about the sly disguises of opportunity. But in today’s episode, Steph and I discuss the sly disguises of fear.  

Many of the clients in our TEM90 program ask questions that show fear in disguise. They’ll ask about one thing, thinking they’re solving a particular problem—when really, the underlying issue is fear.

There are many fears associated with being the leader of a company. People are often great at doing the thing they sell, but they don’t have the skills or knowledge to run the business from an operational standpoint. They have fear around those things.

They think:

“What if I do the wrong thing and someone leaves?

“What if I don’t set this up right and I have to redo it all over again?”

“What if I hire someone and I can’t pay them?”

One of the big disguises of fear is resistance or procrastination. If you’re procrastinating—there’s something you’re resisting being, doing, or having.

In today’s episode, we discuss:


    • How fear is designed to keep you alive 
    • Why you must be mindful, so that you can spot fear in your mind before it takes control of your behavior and results
    • How your decisions (or lack of a decision) can be controlled by fear—and this is tough to see sometimes, because your subconscious mind doesn’t want you to see that, because then you can change it
    • How confusion is a key indicator of fear—and confusion is strategy of your mind to try to stop you from moving forward into the unknown
    • Why, if you don’t have the results that you want in your business, you’re in resistance to something 
    • How many business owners resist growing, because they don’t want to upset the apple cart


Plus, Steph shares the story of how she caught herself experiencing fear and procrastination while working on a project on the plane this past week.

Most people want to move away from fear, but I think you should move INTO it. Fear is our friend. It tells you a tremendous amount of information about your next step. You can’t reverse engineer a multi 7-figure business if you’re in resistance. Maybe you need to make a decision about something. Whatever it is, procrastination exists because there’s some kind of fear underneath it.
