Are You Motivated By Fear?
I'm preparing a presentation to be delivered in two weeks called "Getting Beyond the Fear Factor." Here is the description:
How much of our work experience is dictated by fear? If we're honest, we might be shocked to realize how much we are being held back from achieving our goals. This thought-provoking presentation will give participants new ways to think about what's keeping them from achieving their full potential.
I love Lance Secretan's distinction between motivation and inspiration. He says motivation is external and fear-based while inspiration is finding what's already inside a person and helping to bring it out.
What are your fears and how do they keep you trapped? I'd love to include information and research from my readers here, so please help me spread the word about fear at work. If you have any resources for me to refer to, that would be great, too!
My theory is that if we can talk about fear openly, we'll be much more likely to beyond motivation to inspiration.
Thanks in advance for your help!
