Insecurity is part of the human condition, so much so that if there was a drug that enabled people to overcome insecurity, it would be out of stock continually. We all hate insecurity but don’t know what to do about it. That’s why it’s a rare treat to hear someone like Sean Stephenson unravel the mystery. If you don’t know Sean, you need to. When he was born, doctors predicted he would not survive more than 24 hours because of a rare bone disorder, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, that stunted his growth and caused his bones to be extremely fragile. Despite the challenges he faced, he’s taken a stand against insecurity and has helped many others do the same. You can be among those he’s helped by listening to this inspiring episode.
Compare leads to Despair ~ Sean Stephenson
Sean Stephenson believes that one of the main reasons people struggle with insecurity is because they constantly compare themselves to others. My body is not as fit as his. I haven’t had the level of success she has. I’m not as pretty, or nice, or interesting, or funny – or whatever. You know how it goes. Sean says that one of the first steps we need to take in overcoming insecurity is refusing to compare ourselves to others. But in order to do that we have to understand something deeply personal – we were each made for a specific purpose that ONLY we can fulfill. Find out how Sean helps his clients understand themselves and live the life they were meant to live by hearing his responses in this Q&A session from Freedom Fast Lane LIVE 2016.
Sean Stephenson’s formula for beating insecurity: GAP vs FED.
When you focus on your goals, your appreciations, and your preferences, you will join the ranks of those who are crushing it in business and enjoying fulfillment in life. They are people who understand what they want, appreciate what they have, and pursue what they like. But when you focus on your fear, the things and people you envy, and the things you dislike – you will be miserable and unsuccessful. Sean tells some great personal stories and anecdotes from client experiences on this episode that will help you put these into a practical frame of reference so that you can see how to apply his GAP vs FED formula to your own life. Be sure to listen.
Insecurity will be your constant companion if you can’t control your internal climate.
When it comes to the WAY things happen in your life there is very little you can control. If you want to overcome insecurity you have to take your focus OFF those things – the things you can’t control – and put your focus on the things you can control – and those things are almost always internal. Sean Stephenson has encountered his share of obstacles, but he’s learned that in order to beat insecurity and accomplish the things he wants to accomplish he’s got to orient his inner world toward success and meaning – and only HE can do that for himself. This Q&A session from Freedom Fast Lane 2016 reveals how Sean overcomes his own insecurities – and what he does to help his clients overcome their own insecurities.
