What does Will Smith have to do with Phoning?
It’s Halloween, a time where people apparently enjoy being scared out of our wits. In reality, people feel scared a lot of the time anyway due to their own fears. I know I used to. Fear is not real. But it stops us doing so much. In the work I do both inside and outside of Ringhello I help people understand their fear. I love how Will Smith is an advocate for helping people understand their fears. Not to work through, not to ignore or quieten, but to realise them for what they are.
I urge you all to watch this really short video to see if it changes your life too.
In this next clip, he then talks about the bliss that you feel the moment you step the other side of your fear. For example the feeling of euphoria you get when you surrender because you’ve faced your fear and are just in the moment. I’ve been there.
I’ve been locked in fear in the past and I love what he says here too. The truth is in our lives and our businesses fear stops us doing so much. I help people understand their fear in a few ways. I work with people on a personal level in my “other work” outside of Ringhello. Within this business I help people understand their fears when it comes to picking up the phone to speak to people. I help them feel empowered and strong and confident in their own abilities. Some people say they feel like they’ve had counselling after I’ve worked with them. And I guess that’s a huge part of it.
I hope this post has helped you!
