Coffee chat with Christy & Susanne | The fear of failure.
Coffee chat with Christy and Susanne is just going to be with me today. And I am sitting here at Marina Del Rey and Los Angeles, California, overlooking the beautiful marina. I want to talk to you about failure today and, more so, the fear of failure because if I’m candid with myself, I found myself a little bit frozen in fear of failure myself.
And I didn’t even realize that until this morning. You see, many steps have to take place to find your dream and discover your purpose. And every step that I’m taking, the feeling is bone-rattling scary to me. And I find myself pushing out the action that I need to accept that I’m choosing to take in order to make my dream, and hopefully, other people’s dreams come true.
While I’m talking to you, I’m getting shivers from head to toe. I couldn’t believe that I had fallen prey to this for the past week and a half simply because I am an expert in negotiating myself. I am an expert in, oh, I do this tomorrow. If you can relate to that, we are best friends already.
Now, here is the deal. We’re not going to get anything done. Nothing is ever going to get accomplished. Suppose we’re staying in the dream. We are achieving our dreams and accomplishing what we want to see. The change in the world we want to be part of and whatever that looks like for you, be apparent in this action.
I took apart today why I’m afraid of approving
the crowdfunding campaign. It requires us to step outside of our comfort area and change something to get out of that zone of familiarity requires a considerable level of awareness. There is a massive level of understanding and a level of really being able to step into these actions that you don’t want to take that you’re so afraid of.
Why am I so afraid to send the answers to the business plan writer that I hired? It comes down to what if it’s not good enough and not being okay with it? Not being okay with it, not being good enough. That’s what I concluded too. And, you know, we are never going to find out. I will never find out if I’m right.
Staying here and wishing and hoping and meditating. I am never going to find out if it’s good enough or not. So action is where it really may say, even if these are, if you have to inch your way towards uncomfortable, scary action every day, like, even if it’s just a tiny email if it is a paragraph that you’re editing.
If it is one phone call that you’re making, if you’re asking one person for help, that will rewire our nervous system in believing that we are capable of such things. So there you go. These are my thoughts for the day, whatever it is that you want. Wherever you want to go, stop fucking listening to all the people that are telling you, you can’t do it. Or that conveniently wish to keep you smaller than you are meant to be, so they can be comfortable being around you take those messy actions. No, is literally
just only feedback, and know that this is that one step closer to where you want to go, and no is not a failure.
Take messy action and let me know what kind of dirty action you’re taking today? What is it that you know you should be doing?
Okay, we’re sending you so much love. Thank you for being here. Thank you for always listening and till next time.
So much ❤ Susanne
