Coaching Call #090 – Her Fear of Failure is Holding Her Back in Her Career
This client has been on the long, slow career path for far too many years. She knows that she’ll reach her goals eventually, but is there no way to speed up her progress? When can we know when we’re ready to take the leap? How much preparation is necessary and how much of a role does skill level play in our chances of success?
Our fear of failure can be crippling and our minds will come up with all kinds of excuses as to why we’re not ready to go for what we truly want. If you want to learn an easy and gentle way to release that fear, especially when it comes to the workplace (but it’s really applicable to all areas of life), this call is for you.
