Step 6: Encourage, give support, hope, and grow your confidence.
Sometimes to encourage is defined as “inspiring with courage.” In her book, Do it Scared, Ruth Soukup outlines the different types of fear that often get in the way of progress. These range from the fear of making mistakes (the procrastinator), fear of authority (the rule stickler), fear of what others might think (the people pleaser), fear of rejection (the outcast), fear of adversity and of pain or struggle (the pessimist), fear of not being capable (self-doubter), to fear of taking responsibility (excuse maker).
You may find it helpful to reflect on your fears and to include encouraging thoughts, offsetting any fears as you develop step 6. Feel free to add another page or to use the back side of your Amaging™ Affirmation in your journal or notebook. Add as many pages as you need. For most of us, the need for encouragement is like a thirst that cannot be quenched.
