Feel the Fear and Launch Anyway

I just got off a call with my NLP coach. We swap services, so I give him advice about internet stuff, and he helps me with my (many) “issues”.

One of the things he is helping me work through is my fear of moving my family thousands of miles away to live in Calgary, Canada.

He said something that made me smile.

“It will work out because you are an action-taker, you will %^&* make it work”.

Swearing is not a big habit of his, but in this instance it did add some force to what he was trying to say πŸ™‚

Until a few years ago I wasn’t really an action-taker. I lived in fear a lot more than I do now, but even so, sometimes the anxiety does take hold. Being able to see the progress I have made from leaving my job 5 years ago to now gives me some comfort.

Making the leap was the best thing. I am thankful I found the courage, because daunting as it was, my family and I reap the benefits every day.

    You should just move to Ohio – We have awesome beaches and mountains.. And the healthcare is expensive.

  2. Fear has played a huge role in my life. I know I can’t escape it so I’m doing a better job of embracing it. I’m launching a product in 3 weeks. I know it won’t be perfect, but it will change lives. I’ve waited too long on past projects and missed out on my window of motivation.

    We have to strike while the soul is hot.

  3. Glad to see you’re coming home πŸ™‚ You’ll love it in Calgary – although it can get pretty brisk in the winter months!

  4. Fear is one factor that keep most people in their homes, not moving towards change. Although fear may be viewed in negative point of view, it should be also looked positively. Human need fear. Fear made me think twice when we do something, so we do not do thing hesitated. Fear made us realize that there are something or someone who are more powerful than us, and that made us humble. It’s okay to have fear in your Life, Chris. Just do not let it overtake our life and made us a coward.

  5. Nike’s slogan “just do it” is highly underrated.

    Enjoy Calgary – I am a Canadian living in Whistler and Vancouver – you’ve got some pretty amazing surroundings in Calgary….

    It is great to read about your NLP experiences, and great that you are writing about it – it is super important for folk to see the importance of “getting help” and not being afraid to talk/write about it!


  6. Hi Chris,
    I know exactly how you feel as I approach a launch date for myself. Is it fear or excitement or a stew of both? In my case a bit of both but I’m holding on for the ride with a smile on my face (or is it a grimace?) πŸ˜‰

    Good luck with the move. I am sure it’ll all be great,

    The beauty of a connected world is that although we lose you from the UK, your blog will continue(I hope).
    I have a lot of networking to do over the next few weeks and I am trying to be brave about it!

  8. Good you say that, because I’m bout to start an new offline company. I really been lacking to get things going. Reading this article has really lit a fire under may butt now.

  9. As someone who has been a Calgarian i can tell you that you will have know problem adapting to Calgary. If you need help finding a house in Calgary. You can call my brother-in-law Konrad Heassner at Coldwell banker. He has over twenty years experience in selling homes and helping people to relocate to Calgary. Just google him.
    On another topic. I love Mojo marketing plan and will use it religiously as i work as a product launch manager and because of your program i can quit my day job in a few months. I am looking forward to taking your authority blogger program as soon as i finish going through Mojo.
    A special thanks to Melanie for taking time on a Sunday to help me with my account. That’s taking customer service to a new level.
    All the best

  10. Thanks but the way my family has gone through healthcare in the past I think we need some of that evil socialist healthcare we are all warned away from πŸ˜‰

  11. Good luck with the launch Karl, and remember that the follow-up is just as imporant as the launch πŸ™‚

  12. One of the best changes I made in my life was learning to take action despite fear. The results have been amazing πŸ™‚

  13. Thanks, it will certainly be an adventure! πŸ™‚

  14. I am always seeking help, none of us a so self-contained they can’t use a bit of help πŸ™‚

  15. Glad you are enjoying the Mojo course Brian, Melani is a gem isn’t she? πŸ™‚

  16. Good luck! πŸ™‚

  17. I think I will need to blog if only for therapy πŸ˜‰

  18. Yes, I’m struggling, shipping is hard and I sway between gung ho confidence and utter hopelessness. Isn’t that normal:)

    Your course sounds great and I hope your experience will help you overcome your fear of making the big move.

    If it makes you feel any better, we uprooted our 3 kids (then aged 2, 5 and 8) from their idlyllic life on a stunning island in New Zealand where they were born and took them to live in Panama. A country where we had no work, didn’t speak the language or know anyone and had never visited before.

    We ended up living in Costa Rica, the kids going to local schools and being totally immersed in Spanish. There were no books, pictures on the walls or fun school activities, just learning by rote and bullying of gringo kids!

    Still they learnt so much, can recognise and name every type of jungle animal in english and spanish and survived the experience. Your kids will too.

    What’s best for you is best for them:)

    Guilt seems to be a natural part of the parenting experience, I hope you can let it go and enjoy the exciting adventures you have ahead of you!

  19. the way Chris..I will love to get an skype interview from you soon if you have a couple of minutes to spare.

  20. awesome stuff man..thumbs up….very usefull especially for a full time blogger like me

  21. One of my favourite quotes from Millionaire Mind is, “if you’re comfortable, then you’re dying.” Whenever I feel ‘the fear’, I know it’s the right thing to do!

  22. We are in the same boat. I live in Sweden and will now move to New York to expand my business. Thanks for the post and good luck! πŸ™‚

  23. I related so much to this post. About 30 years ago, I uprooted from my home, and move thousands of miles to another state. I left my career, my family and my friends, but it was the most amazing best decision I ever made.

    It happened so quickly I didn’t have time to think about it until I had settled in my new home. Since that time, I have continued to take action, and make it right and not analyze every move I make. The vast majority of time my actions have been successful, and if not I learn some great lessons πŸ™‚

  24. Hey Chris, 2 great points in this article I like, and want to expand on:

    1) Moving to anywhere is 100% achievable and fun. I’ve so far lived in Auckland, the Whitsunday Islands, Sydney, Geneva, London… The best thing about moving is it adds perspectives and experiences to enhance ones life, mind and outcomes. Canada then… I hope you Ski or Snowboard?

    2) Taking Action is the key. Yes a clear and simple plan to follow increases chances of success, but I’ve found execution of the plan the big key. So, idea to deliver in 6-12 weeks… I like that!

    – James
