Mystery Shoppers, Overcome your Fear!

As you start your mystery shopping career, you may suddenly have mixed feelings inside of you that may cause hesitation. You begin to question if the decision to become a secret shopper will become more of a hindrance than a benefit.

Our fear of failure often hampers us when we begin to undertake changes in life. We start to doubt ourselves and our capacity to succeed instead of focusing all our mental energy on success. This can be a major dilemma, because we are all too often short-changing our own abilities at the expense of our productivity.

Fortunately, you are not alone. Many mystery shoppers experience this fear, especially when encountering a new chapter in their life. Yet, we should realize that such undertakings are actually good for us.  If we have the right attitude and perspective, we will become more successful in our chosen career paths.

Here are some tips on how you can overcome these fears and move into your career as a successful secret shopper:

  1. Know your fear. Is it a fear of failure or of success?  Identifying your fear will give you a better perspective of how to handle that fear. Identifying a problematic situation is the first step in reconciling it.
  2. Analyze the best and worst possible outcomes of taking action. This will give you a way to measure the costs and benefits of your endeavors.
  3. Visualize yourself as being successful. Encourage yourself by creating a positive goal and striving to achieve it.

If you make a constant, continuous effort to overcome your fears, you will not only be successful as a mystery shopper, but you will develop a healthy mindset regarding your work.
