Overcoming Fear

Do you know what it feels like to be scared? Do you know what it feels like to have fears swarming around in your head? I can almost guarantee you everybody has had that feeling at least once in their life.

How do you overcome fear? You might ask. Or even, you might ask: “What is overcoming fear?” Both of those two questions are two good questions. The answer to Question #1: Understand that fears are only worries swarming around in your head that make you hesitate to live your dream and, possibly, do what no one else has done before.

The answer to Question #2: When you overcome fear, it means you overcame an obstacle that was blocking your path. It means you have disregarded that fear, understood that you can do it, and pressed on toward the finish line. Never give up. You only fail when you give up.

I read this real story once, and it was about one of the runners Jamaica sent in one of the Olympic games. He was hurting and tired, and the winners had already been recognized and the race was over a long time ago. He limped across the stadium, trying to get to the finish line. One of the observers watching him asked him something to the effect of this: “Why didn’t you give up?” And the Jamaican answered to the effect of: “Jamaica didn’t send me to give up; they sent me to finish the race.

One of the important things is to never give up – ever. Fear helps you give up, because it gives you thoughts that are blocking your path. There’s a great acronym for fear. F.E.A.R.: False Evidence Appearing Real.

“Fear is not real,” says actor Will Smith in his movie After Earth, “The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may never exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me: Danger is very real, but fear is a choice.” In summary, Will Smith’s character in the movie is saying that the danger that causes fear is real, but not the fear itself. It’s an illusion.

Just remember to think those impacting words in your mind: “Fear is a choice.

Executive Kids

I’m sure the name of this article probably got your attention. Executive kids are the next generation of business and business owners, and not many people recognize that. It is vital for kids and children to know executive and business skills, to learn how to be an entrepreneur when they grow up, or even become one as a child! The next generation of business – kids – would be kind of like this picture, if it were to happen: A kid in an executive business suit, with paperwork, walking out of a big business building, with a phone in hand, talking to some business partner or client. Here at Big Ideas Kid Coaching, we inspire kids to succeed, and help make that next generation of business owners come sooner, by equipping – teaching – kids on how to succeed, personally, and in business.

“Executive kids?” Says Trisha Fox with award-winning creative ad agency Splash! Designworks, “That’s kind of a big idea.” Also I no doubt caught the reference to Big Ideas Kid Coaching.

Another thing I noticed is that kids are not getting much business education in schools. They’re getting a daily dose (except for the weekend) of every other kind of education, but business is not regularly taught in schools – of Delaware, at least.

If you want your kid – or you want to; it depends on who’s reading this article right now – to succeed, you’ve came to the right place, to offer business education.

Time to Inspire

Inspiring kids and youth, from pre-teen (tween) to teenage kids, is very important. A lot of kids don’t really have any child role models to look at and learn from them how they too can be successful. Kids don’t get much business advice or knowledge from schools, and it’s a crucial thing to have expertise on how to excel at business. It’s always good to have kids succeed.

I know that there are a lot of mean people out there, especially bullies in school, and we are here to inspire kids to be brave and stand up to those mean people, and obstacles that stop them from achieving their dreams. Here at Big Ideas Kid Coaching, we make sure kids can achieve their dreams and their goals. We want to inspire kids to succeed and not discourage them.

“So many people seem to have a knack to discourage others,” Mike Fox, owner and CEO of award-winning Delaware graphic design company Splash! Designworks says, “Why not stand out from the crowd and inspire?”

Here at Big Ideas Kid Coaching, we inspire kids to succeed, just like our tag line says. We inspire personally and in business, so that the kids can succeed in business and personally.

So, I think it’s time to inspire. Don’t you? I think it’s time to inspire kids to succeed – and that’s exactly what we do.
