How to Overcome Your Fears

"How to Overcome Your Fears" Young Girl Hugging Lion Graphic

~by Donya Zimmerman~

Do you sometimes have doubts and fears about yourself or your business? How do you overcome your fears?

The past week has not been the best week for me because I allowed doubt and fear to take over my mind and my thoughts. I did fine the prior week because I was very active and productive. But, then this past week I lost the drive and desire to want to work on my business. I don’t know what hit me, but I just wanted to stay in bed all day. I was like this for several days until this past Saturday. I kept thinking about everything I didn’t have, and comparing myself to other female business owners I knew. I just felt like a failure because I was not at the same level as some of my business colleagues.

But then on Saturday, God tapped me on my head and told me to wake up. He let me know that He did not bring me this far to see me give up and fail. God let me know that I am as good as anyone else, and that I have gifts and talents no one else has. I have a story to share; how can I share that story with others if I’m being lazy? How can I inspire others when I am moping in bed?

Some of you may be going through something similar, but remember God is with you. He can get you through it. No matter what, do not give up, because God has not given up on you.
