Friday Quickie: Money Fears

Mark Rothko, No. 13 Some days money fears have me by the balls.

And this week I was reminded of the best way out of this place: just do something.

By doing something I mean taking the tiniest bit of action that moves me in the direction I want to go. Simple things like: reaching out and talking to someone. Sending out an email to announce coaching offerings. Reading a blog or listening to a lesson on how to market new products. Or writing my blog. Emptying the dishwasher. Going for a run. Taking a walk to do some creative brainstorming. Looking at a piece of art, like the Rothko "No. 13," above.

My 2c is this: Action is the best way to work through fear.

When you're living in the space of creation, there is no room for fear. So ask yourself this:

What am I going to create today?

And sometimes a great salve is connecting with another human being that says: You're not alone. You can do it.

You can do it! Happy Friday.

Any comments on how you stare down fears, especially money fear$, let 'em rip.
