Recently I had the privilege to interview my business coach Robert Gillette. Though he is not necessarily a full time business coach, he’s just been through some rough experiences and has a lot of wisdom to provide.
He shared with me an experience he had that lead to a moment of courage. A moment worth sharing on this show.
It was Fall 2011 when Robert had been out of work for a couple of years after being laid off. At this point he was looking to grow his free-lance photography business. That’s when an opportunity presented itself. This opportunity lead to a moment where embracing fear was necessary for growth in self-confidence.
In this episode:
- Story of Courage by guest Robert Gillette (Samuel’s coach)
- Moving from desperation to courage
- Facing doubt and embracing fear
- Circle of Influence
“Both fortune and love befriend the bold.” – Ovid
Circle of Influence
The things you can actually address are inside the circle of influence. There is no fear inside the circle, only what you can control. If you focus on the fears outside of the circle that’s when you begin to get consumed by fear. As you grow in your ability to control, your circle of influence grows and continues to push out fear.
As you push your limits you can begin to touch fear. It’s only when embracing fear do you begin to expand.
