Prospecting is tough.

Talking to your family and friends about a new business venture can be intimidating.

Starting a new business in the first place is tough, especially for those who have never done it before.

Fear stifles many aspiring network marketers, limiting their results, and in many cases washing them out of the business entirely.

Fear, however, is a product of what Seth Godin calls the "lizard brain."

To succeed in network marketing, you must wrestle your decisions away from the "lizard brain" and be more conscious about your choices and daily actions.

Answering the following four questions will help you do so:

1. What's the worst possible thing that could happen if my fear occurs?

2. What's the worst possible thing that could happen if I never overcome or eliminate this fear?

3. What's the best possible outcome I can expect if I don't overcome or eliminate my fear?

4. What's the best possible outcome I can expect if I do overcome or eliminate my fear?

As you go through this process, you'll realize that the outcome of not confronting and productively dealing with your fear is much worse than avoiding the things your fear.

What are you afraid of? Get your fear out in the open and let it dry out and shrivel in the heat of conscious choice.

Got a story to share about overcoming fear, or the consequences in your life of not doing so? Share your story, or general thoughts on these four questions, with the community by commenting below.
