Grow a Multi-Million Dollar Business in 2009 Instead of Nurturing Profit-Killing Fear

22 Mar, 2009 | by


Unconscious fear-based business models propel most firms – and the people within them – head first into self-fulfilling failure. But with just  five easy steps that dreaded scenario can be turned into fantastic success.

During 2008, all of us who are entrepreneurs and business owners faced the most devastating challenges since the Great Depression. But by simply following five proven steps we can all avoid stressful and financially detrimental pitfalls and mistakes in 2009. For years, through my business consulting company Make Your Business Boom, we’ve been showing clients throughout the world an innovative five-step method to identify profit-killing fears disguised as organizational plans and strategies. Companies that have implemented the formula have found that their poor performances of the past are quickly replaced with powerfully profitable positive results.

The fact is that individuals, groups, teams, and entire corporations consciously and unconsciously manifest fear into everything they do. Managing, marketing, branding, selling, and negotiating are all aspects of business that suffer from the fear factor – especially during times of extreme economic recession. To root out that toxic emotion and move the mental and emotional hurdles out your path to success, just follow these five steps:


1)      Make a complete list of all business goals, no matter how big or seemingly unrealistic they may be. Put all your dreams and aspirations on paper.
2)      Write a short statement or story about each of the goals or objectives, and why the company has not yet attained it.
3)      Now ask a simple question. What disguised fear hides within the story? Is it, for example, procrastination, doubt, or confusion? Maybe a perceived lack of resources is causing fear. Whatever it is, reduce the fear to a single word label to clearly identify and isolate it.
4)      Next to the word that describes the killer fear, write a statement about why it is false. Use bullet points – the more the better – to reinforce the fact that the fear is unwarranted and is nothing more than a mental myth and an irrational, imaginary stumbling block.
5)      Last but not least, write down the steps needed to reach each goal, including the people, resources, education and training, or whatever else is needed to make them happen. Then go out and fearlessly do what it takes to reach those goals and realize dreams not hampered by the illusion of fear.


Turn tales of fear and loss into billion-dollar success stories. This process is a proven solution that is easily implemented, so you can get the desired results in record time – without having to invest precious capital or strain any of your valuable human resources.


If an organization has a losing strategy, the natural tendency is to project that negative mindset into the future as a projected fear of failure. Ninety-nine percent of business issues are fear-based. But as Franklin D. Roosevelt said, “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” Overcome that fear and grand success is guaranteed.
