EP 87: Overcome the Fear of Success and the Fear of Failure with Becca

EP87v1This episode is about overcoming the fear of success and the fear of failure. During the coaching session with Becca, it is clear she intellectually knows what she needs to do to build her business, but she can’t commit to doing it.

Everyone defines fear and success differently, but usually our fear of success has to do with being seen more, feeling unsafe, feeling more responsibility for changing, or changing or losing ourselves in some way. Our fear of failure normally has something to do with rejection, loss of money, or status, or security, judgment from others, or our own self-criticism that we endure if we fail.

So, how do we overcome these fears? It’s about more than taking action steps towards your goals. Maybe, you have tried to overcome it by just doing whatever it is. But, until you upgrade the beliefs and old triggers, which perpetuate the fear, you will continue to find yourself in your own way.

Many people think money will make them feel better about themselves or make them more confident. But it doesn’t — confidence is an inside job. We can’t create self-worth from money, but we can create net worth from self-worth.

When we have self-worth and do the internal work, we express our gifts and align with our higher purpose. We are then able to attract money to us. It is important for us to have a wealth consciousness.

Aubrey Marcus and I are facilitating a 3-day retreat in Austin, Texas over Memorial Day weekend for men and women. The focus of the retreat is Love: Practice Makes the Master. There will be yoga, breathing exercises, ecstatic dance and more. Come and become part of the tribe.

Consider/Ask Yourself:

  • What are your fears around failure or success? Do you know what to do when it comes to your business, but you aren’t doing it?
  • Is there a part of you that has longed to fit in?
  • Do you feel guilty if you have too much good in your life?

Becca’s Question:

Becca is about to start a new quest but she finds herself unable to get started.

Becca’s Key Insights and Ahas:

  • She didn’t like growing up privileged.
  • Cooking is her way of connecting to people.
  • Guilt and shame were at the core of her eating disorder.
  • She enjoyed having a secret, which was her eating disorder.
  • She has an unhealthy relationship with money and success.

How to Get Over It and On With It:

  • She needs a new image of what success and wealth look like.
  • She should write out her new definition of fitting in, and her definition of success.
  • She needs to give herself a feeling of longing and connection.
  • She needs to work on feeling grateful.
  • She should get a business coach.


  • Write out your new definitions of success and failure. Get clear about how you want to define success.

  • Identify the payoff of your negative emotions and find a way to get the payoff in a positive way.
  • If you are starting a business, invest in a coach to help hold you accountable.

EP 68: Overcoming Self Doubt and Fear with Anneke

EP68v1 (1)Listen in as I coach Anneke on putting her self doubt behind her so she can make the career changes she longs for by tapping into her unique gifts.  It is important we all take time to look at the gifts we were born with. They are the gifts that lead to your calling, and the gifts that make you, you. Often, we disconnect from our gifts and the truth of who we are. It is when we are too paralyzed and blinded by self-doubt that we forget about and disconnect from our natural gifts.

This call with Anneke was the first episode of the Over and On With It podcast. This session stands out for me because we explored the question, “Who am I?” and because of the level of vulnerability Anneke shared.

Remember, we get to choose who we are. Not being who we are can be suffocating. We are not defined by other people’s views of us. We are all born with natural gifts from the divine. It’s up to us to embrace them and use them.

After listening to this call I welcome you to revisit and complete the ‘Who am I?’ essence exercise from my introductory episode, The Why Behind this Podcast.

Consider/Ask Yourself:

  • Do you feel like you are really living authentically?
  • Are you fully expressing who you are, or are you being a version of yourself?
  • Do you struggle with loneliness?
  • Are you in touch with your emotions?
  • Are you concerned about what other people think of you?

Anneke’s Question:

Anneke is about to make a big career change and would like to know how to be open and honest about who she really is, and to shift from her pattern of keeping herself small and not seen.

Anneke’s Key Insights and Ahas:

  • Acknowledging she sugarcoats her difficult emotions.
  • She doesn’t want to be a burden on others.
  • Loneliness has been her friend, because it’s when she gives herself a break.
  • It’s ok for other people not to like it when she is her authentic self.
  • Recognizing she is staying in her comfort zone, because those emotions are familiar.

How to Get Over It and On With It:

  • Try taking actions to trust yourself and be consistently authentic.
  • Don’t compare yourself to other people, embrace your own essence.
  • Be willing to remember the essence of who you truly are.
  • Invite spirit into your space.
  • Practice self-forgiveness.
  • Don’t be defined by what other people have told you about you.

Assignments and Takeaways:

  • Write out who you are, what is your unique essence? Then, for 30 days get in front of a mirror and make ‘I am’ statements with your answers.
  • Pick 2‒3 people to practice intimacy and authenticity with.
  • Write a thank you letter to loneliness for giving you time alone.

EP 63: How to Beat Fear and Self-Sabotage with Jake

EP63v1Collectively we are all going through a rebalancing of masculine and feminine energies, not only in what it means to be a man or a woman, but what it means to be human. We are just moving into rebalancing this energy so masculine and feminine energies can be in flow together. While women struggle to find their place in the masculine energy, men struggle to fit into more feminine things, such as being vulnerable or pursuing more creative endeavors that may feel less manly. This is not a time to be discouraged. We are all longing for belonging and connection. This episode is about questioning the old paradigms and rules.

Today’s caller, Jake, thinks he is stuck, but from my point of view he is at a crossroads. Will he continue to let old programming and belief systems drive him, or will he make a commitment to move past the fear of old paradigms, and step into his full potential?

During the call, I didn’t want to take Jake down the road of investigating his past, because he had already spent too much time analyzing the past and worrying about the future. Jake said he had an easy-going upbringing without a lot of drama or trauma. Often, feeling that degree of comfort as a child makes it harder to take risks as an adult, because we don’t have enough experiential evidence to recover from failure, risks, and things that scare us.

We have to stop asking ourselves why, why, why. We don’t have to self-analyze ourselves to death. We need to be aware of the patterns and self-limiting beliefs, so we can shift them. We all need to step up into our full potential, and not allow outdated paradigms hold us back.

Men, it is ok to be vulnerable, to talk about your doubts, and to admit to confusion about who you are, and how to find your purpose.
