I’ve been working with a new group of investors recently.

Whenever I take on new clients, I always know they’re going to need help confronting fear. That’s because fear is one of the most powerful forces holding us back in life.

Think about all of the fears you might have about investing…

You might be scared you’re going to get it wrong and lose money. Maybe you’re afraid the property market will make a downturn.

Perhaps you simply have a fear of the unknown. There’s a lot to learn if you wish to use investing as a vehicle for building wealth and creating freedom.

The fact that you know so little about it creates fear.

Now, I’d love to be able to tell you that you can make the fear disappear.

But…that’s not the case.

Fear never disappears. It’s not going to magically go away.

It will always be there.

What can change is the impact it has on your life. That’s the element of fear you have control over.

Right now, your fear might feel completely debilitating. It might make you feel stuck and unhappy.

And yet, you’re not doing anything to change the situation. Your fear leaves you so paralysed you’re staying exactly where you are – because change is just as scary.

That’s what happens when you allow fear to control your life.

What’s the flipside to that?

The new group of investors I’m working with can tell you. Each one of them has fear in their life, just like you do. The only difference between them and you is that they’re not allowing the fear to control them.

They’ve taken the first step towards overcoming their fear by getting educated. Education reduces fear so it never again holds them back again from realising their dreams.

I want you to do the same.

Your fear will never disappear.
