You are not scared of failing.
What does failure mean to you?
Failure isn’t real. Failure is just an excuse, a convenient distraction from what you’re really afraid of. You aren’t afraid of failing, you are afraid of WHAT PEOPLE WILL SAY if you follow your intuition and chase the dream you’re after.
You're scared of what other people will think (aka the new sabertooth tiger).
I've heard this over and over and over again from clients. I'm afraid people will think ______ if I do _________. This thought is the NUMBER ONE thing I see holding people (especially women) back from their true potential. AND IT'S ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT.
When you live from this place you take away your own power. You keep yourself small and hope that everyone will like you.
There will always be people who don't like you.
For years, I EXHAUSTED myself trying to please everyone and there will still people who were triggered by me. So I finally said, forget it. Obsessing over what people thought sucked, and I was meant for so much more than playing that game.
I launched my personal brand, created the business I was dying to create, and started sharing really vulnerable stuff on social media. I'm SURE there were people who thought I was full of shit. I'm SURE people unfollowed, unfriended, blah, blah, blah.
AND I HAVE NEVER FELT SO HAPPY IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.
My worst nightmare came true, AND IT WAS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME. STOP STOP STOP letting what people think, stop you from creating your own path.
Find your power within you and hold onto it tightly. Don’t let others take your power because of their thoughts about you. Stand in your power. Hold true to your message.
Your future self will thank you.
