So many people are held back by fear. It’s always easier to stay in your comfort zone but that is not where you reach your full potential. To surpass the limits and transform your life, you must push past your fears and reframe how you look at life’s challenges.
In this episode, Steve Gill, the #1 Coach, shares how to conquer fear and transform your life and business for the better.
Here are some power takeaways from today’s conversation:
[03:44] How to Deal with Fear
The first step to dealing with fear is to take notice of how you’re feeling. Fear and faith exist in your mind. While fear causes your mind to run wild, faith is directed focus. Reframing the way you think about fear will give it new meaning because nothing in life has any meaning except the one you give it.
[10:42] Taking Back Control
There’s a lot of fear in entrepreneurship; that’s why you need more certainty. Rituals are controllable practices that will help give you a sense of control, thus eliminating fear.
Rituals plus routine equals peak performance. Giving meaning to your actions can make even the simplest decisions feel incredibly empowering.
[16:52] Thriving Despite Fear
Find out what you’re afraid of and ask yourself if you would do it if your fear did not exist. If the answer is yes, then you need to do it. The mark of a great business is how you thrive amidst the chaos and fear.
[25:00] Meeting Your Worthy Opponents
Worthy opponents come into your life to help you become the best version of yourself. When you meet people who challenge you, they are meant for you. It’s happening for you — not to you — to conquer that worthy opponent and step up to another level.
[28:50] Getting Into a Good Mood
Tony Robbins would say there are only two states of being: the beautiful state and the suffering state. Exercise your emotional muscles by acknowledging when you’re in the suffering state so you can overcome it and get to the beautiful state.

“The fear is always there. And you’ve talked about it earlier here. You just have to trump the fear, you have to be more powerful than the fear. And you do that with faith. And faith is this directed focus.” - Matt

“Conquer this one small hard thing that’s not going to hurt you — it won't hurt you, it’ll help you — and then the rest of your day, the hard things really aren’t that hard to just go ahead and step forward and do them.” - Matt
[32:19] — [32:26]
“A mood is not just an emotion and thought patterns in our head. A mood is a full-body experience.” - Matt
