Is Fear of Failure Keeping You Stuck?

Ep: 127

Happiness is something we all strive for in life. Unfortunately, with busy careers to juggle and a lack of clarity about what we really want, we often feel like our lives don’t meet our definition of “happiness”. If you feel like you’re continuously chasing achievements only to realize that your excitement is short-lived, the simple answer is to make a change. But change often invokes fear, and that fear is what holds us back.

In today’s episode, Blake shares the reasons why you experience fear when it comes to the thought of making changes. You’ll learn what happens when you focus on fear, and how you can stop letting it hold you back. You’re really only one step away from making the changes that could improve your life and career, and ultimately, bring you the happiness you deserve.

Favorite Quotes:

  1. What we focus on expands. If we focus on our fears, if we focus on our doubts, we will find and create more of that.
  2. Woman after woman after woman is proving that making a transition when you align your life and you align your career appropriately, actually creates more growth, more opportunity, more income, less hours, feeling more valued, more energized, more passionate about your life.
  3. You’re never going to create growth through thinking about fear.
  4. It’s important to understand when you’re unfulfilled how to align your life with what you truly value. Because if you just keep searching for the next job to make it better, the next thing to come your way to fix it, that root cause of why you’re unfulfilled, it will keep coming back over and over and over again.
