The Rule Follower
This fear occurs when someone is so dedicated, almost addicted to following specific rules or guidelines set by those around them. They are paralyzed by fear of breaking a rule, even if it’s only a ‘practice’ and not a ‘law’. They’re easily intimidated by people more experienced and authoritative.
The net effect of this fear is that you are subject to someone else’s rules all the time, versus defining your own guiding principles.
1 Educate yourself on all the things necessary to succeed, operate ethically and remember that knowledge equals confidence, ignorance equals fear. Take responsibility for your own knowledge.
2 Be sure your coaching is coming from experienced and proven sources. Then trust them and don’t waste time checking and double checking.

The Self Doubter
Fear of not being good enough.
This person is insecure about their abilities and overreacts to mistakes. Sometimes this is camouflaged by their over-reactive judginess of others which masks their own fears.
This person usually is very accountable and careful but sometimes to a fault. They are the secret agents of the world, afraid to talk about real estate because they might make a mistake or not know what to say. Fear of success is just as strong as fear of failure.
1 Accept that fact that you WILL make mistakes, that sometimes you won’t do as well as you wished, but learn from your mistakes. Expecting to be perfect all the time is an expression of ego.
2 Defeat fear of not being good enough by taking steps that make you uncomfortable ‘on purpose’ and realizing you’re more capable than you think. You are the sum of all your experiences so make sure you’re having experiences and not hiding out from life.
“If you dare nothing,
then when the day is over,
nothing is all you will have gained.”
