The Fear of Being Found Out

And the Hidden Secret to Getting Over It…

“If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.”… Dale Carnegie

For most of us, fear is a part of everyday life. For real estate professions, that’s even more true.

Being a real estate professional takes  courage. Courage to make sales, courage to stand up at auctions, courage to develop relationships with clients, courage to compete, and courage to take rejection. Every day, there are fears to overcome. Small fears, and big fears.

But one of the three Universal fears we face in real estate  – and it’s not just for real estate professionals, but for people from all walks of life, on all different career paths.

It is…

The fear of being found out.

We all fear that – however successful we become – people will see through the façade. And it’s not just those beginning in the profession. This fear haunts those at the pinnacle of success, those at the height of their careers.

Stress and worry must not be allowed to dominate our lives… John McGrath

And so, how can we effectively deal with this feeling?

There is one powerful way to deal with – if not completely vanish – your fear of being found out.


Action turns your focus away from this fear and back to productivity. Action proves your fear wrong. Action feeds the part of you that is conquering the fear. While – on the other hand – remaining passive feeds the fear itself.

“High achievers, regardless of occupation, understand that taking risks and massive action is a vital part in getting from where you are to where you want to go. And that goes for in life – and in business.”

Whether you’re nervous at auctions, anxious about showing properties, or fearful about closing a sale – you’re not alone. Everyone holds that deep-seated fear that somehow they will be outed. That somehow, they are inadequate for the job.

And of course, there is only one person that can show you how truly great you are. How much potential you have. How you are the very best person for the job. And how you can overcome your fears.

Who is that person?


Get out there and act. Every step forward you take, every decision, every phone call – each of those actions make your fear vanish into the past.
