Hello Bob,

Happy Halloween and welcome to our Shaklee business newsletter
for the month of October. Since Halloween will soon be here I thought
we could talk about the subject of fear.

 

Do you ever fear some things new that you do for the first time? 

Do you fear starting your own Shaklee business if you are thinking about it?

 

We all fear some things to some degree so if you want to control this fear,

"You Must Do What You Fear The Most."

 

 

Do What You Fear The Most!

 

The Best Way to Avoid Failure is to Never Try!


How many of us hide from the possibility of failure?

 

When I was in the fourth grade I was in my first play. I was excited to do my part in this play but when my line came,
I froze. I could not say a word. I was then led back off the stage. From that moment on, I had a phobia about getting
up in front of a group of people to talk. I went on to believe I could never do this and had no interest to ever try it again.
Later in High School, it happened again. I ended up taking a failing grade to avoid getting up in front of the class to give a report.

 

This fear continued until I joined Shaklee and decided to build a business. I was out of work and had to change careers
due to a car accident that ended my current career at the time. My back was up against the wall and I remember reading somewhere that the best way to over come our fears is to do what we fear the most. So I thought about this and also thought about my core desire for wanting to build a business with Shaklee.

 

The products, the company, the industry, were all great. 

But, my doubt or fear was even greater!

 

Could this really work for me?

What if I fail?

What will others say?

What if I succeed?

 

However, my core desire was much stronger than my fear so I decided to give it my best and do what I feared the most.

And that was to pick up the phone and call someone to share what I knew about Shaklee.

 

To be honest, I prayed for a busy signal!

 

At the time I got started in the business, we were taught not to say much on the phone except enough to get the prospect to attend a meeting, or meet in person to learn about Shaklee. In other words, we were taught to just get the appointment
without saying much of anything on the phone.

 

This was so much different from what I now teach when using my RWB business building process. It is so much easier

today but this was the only way you could build back then because we did not have the tools we have today such as the Internet, 3-way and conference calls etc. 

 

So I tried to avoid saying anything other than come to a meeting and you will learn all the details.

Needless to say, most would not come to the meeting.

 

However, every call I made, I got better.

 

It went something like this:

 

My first phone call was awful.

My second call was terrible.

My third and forth calls were both a disaster.

My 9th prospect said yes to getting together but never joined.

 

And so it went.

 

However, each call got better and better over time and I also got better and better to the point that I was
now enjoying what I once feared the most!

 

The payoff has been great for now 26 years without ever missing one bonus check from Shaklee.
Even when I am not working now, I continue to get paid over and over again every month

for work I did years ago!

 

I have people say to me many times over the years that it seems so easy for for me to do this business.
What they did not see is what my early days were like. When I had to do what I feared the most.

Today I get to help others to get over these fears the same way I did.

 

I no longer pray for a busy signal, now I hate it when I get one!

 

Thoughts of Doubt and Fear Can Never Accomplish Anything.

They Always Lead to Failure.

 

There is significant economic evidence that the Great Depression might have been avoided except for the "panic"
that swept over the country (and the world) after the 1929 stock market crash. What should have been no more
than a deep recession altered our world forever because of the prevailing “thoughts of doubt and fear.”

So great were the thought of fear that President Roosevelt felt compelled to deliver a speech about it.

By the way, FDR's speech with his now famous, "The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself,"
was suggested to him by Napoleon Hill, author of the classic, Think and Grow Rich.

If the thoughts of many can bring such great tragedy to our world, is it any wonder that our personal thoughts can do
so much damage to our "individual world." When we spend inordinate amounts of time fearing some thing or event in the future, many times that which we fear comes upon us. When it does, we wring our hands in despair and wonder why it
had to happen to us, when in reality, we are the one responsible for our own troubles.

Bob Proctor says that the process begins first with a thought of doubt, which causes an emotion of fear, which manifests

itself physically as anxiety. Anxiety robs us of our power, our energy and our purpose. Severe anxiety can even

undermine our health. And it's all brought on by a thought of doubt.

Three Things to Help You Conquer Doubt.

First, Change Your Mind About the Doubt, and Keep it Changed.

If you have a doubt about whether you're going to have enough money to make it to the end of the month,

change your mind about it. Whenever the doubt creeps in, affirm to yourself  that,

"I always find a way to have enough of what I need."

 

I love what Emmet Fox says about this, "If you will change your mind concerning anything and absolutely keep it changed,

that thing must and will change too. It is the keeping up of the change in thought that is difficult. It calls for vigilance and determination."

The Second Thing that Overcomes Fear and Doubt is Action.

"Do the thing you fear and fear will disappear" is more than a nice rhyming aphorism.
It's some simple wisdom that always works!

And the Third and Most Important Thing to Overcoming Doubt and Fear is Faith.

Fear and Faith are directly opposite views of the future and they cannot co-exist. My Faith is in a Creator who has

given me dominion over all things. Your Faith may be elsewhere, but know this:

 

Faith and fear cannot be present at the same time.

So do what you fear the most and all else will fall into place.

Have some fun.
