Moving from fear to freedom isn’t intuitive when faced with a tremendous amount of self-doubt. But it’s important to remember that difficult circumstances happen. It’s getting back up and moving forward that brings back self-confidence.

Don’t let unfortunate circumstances negatively impact the way you look at yourself. This is only a recipe for getting stuck.

At one point in his career, our co-host, Weston Pokorny was faced with opportunity to do something great. This was an opportunity to do something courageous.

After years of success in his career, Weston found himself laid off and in a mess of self-doubt. Though he had years of experience in the computer technology arena, he felt hopeless.

This is a story of how he went from paralyzing fear to freedom.

In this episode:

  • We hear how Weston gained freedom from his own fears and self-doubt
  • The two major factors that moved him from paralyzation to massive action
  • Why you should never discount your abilities

Sitting in fear isn’t worth it

Feeling fear is sometimes a necessary step for overcoming it. However, when we allow ourselves to wallow in fear and self-doubt, usually it is very difficult to get out of it on our own. It isn’t worth it to allow fear to grip you to a point of paralyzation.

Moving from fear to freedom

You may be facing fear and self-doubt. It’s never worth it to discredit your abilities and skill-sets. Life happens. It doesn’t mean it’s the end of the world. We just need to pick up and move on.

It also helps to surround yourself with people who believe in you. Certainly, there will come times when you don’t. This is why consistent community is important if you want to find success in your chosen field of work.

If you are having trouble finding freedom from your own fears do the following: Stop, embrace the fear your fears, surround yourself with encouraging people, create a plan, and press on.

    Thank you for sharing your story. When you said “tectonic
    shifts” in life, I could relate to that. I can see where
    paralyzation can set in and stagnant areas of life.
