Who do you aspire to be? What do you ultimately want to stand for? When you know your aspirations—both personally and professionally—you have a better perspective of what’s getting in your way. You can then use the image of yourself that you’re aspiring to as a tool to help you leverage your fear so you can reach your goal. For example, if you aspire to be the company CEO, but you fear public scrutiny, you can use your fear to help you become an ethical CEO—one who will pass any public scrutiny test with flying colors.
