Are you more afraid of failure, or success?

What a loaded question.

It’s easy to believe that our minds are wired to want success. But in all actuality, the way that our minds are wired can be a leading factor that’s holding us back. 

In our lives, “the longer we have sat with thoughts of doubt, the more room we gave for doubt to feel familiar. So anything and everything else starts to feel threatening. The idea of being happy and successful starts to feel threatening because we’re not used to it” – (Tallia)

So how can you break free of these thoughts of doubt and fear? 

How can you work on rewiring your thought process to allow your patterns and habits to form around healthy thoughts?

In this episode, Tallia Dejou joins me to dissect the subconscious mental blocks that we have around fear of failure, so we can start peeling off our layers of learned fear, in order to step into our own power.
