Abstract

While a moderate amount of worry may help you to focus, too much diminishes your effectiveness. Worse, it robs you of your ability to move outside your comfort zone. Whether you know it or not, if you're like most high-need-for-achievement professionals, your anxiety is a trap that keeps you from realizing your full potential. In this chapter, Thomas DeLong, an expert in the drivers of individual and organizational success, presents case studies, thought-provoking diagnostic questions, and proven tactics that can guide you out of the worry trap and onto the path of realizing your full potential. This chapter was originally published as Chapter 9 of ‘Flying Without a Net: Turn Fear of Change into Fuel for Success.’ This chapter is excerpted from ‘Flying Without a Net: Turn Fear of Change into Fuel for Success'.
