Fear. It’s what stops most of us from doing the things we most want to do in life. At least some of the time. We’ve all heard the sound bites like “No Fear” and “Feel the fear and do it anyway”. But the subject deserves a bit more exploration than that.
Niamh talks about how from the outside we can look at other, very successful people, and imagine that they approach the big things they do all full of courage and without any fear. But they may have felt the same kinds of fears that we do back when they first started out.
Jen talks about her fear of launching (which she is doing anyway right now! If you want to check out the program that she just launched you can find her Mastering Money Matters program here!) And the fears that come up at different times in life about failing, being called out on failing and all the rest.
Niamh talks about her fears around doing this podcast. This episode was recorded before we actually launched, and Niamh suddenly realized that once the podcast starts, she will have to actually let her list and audience know that she thing new coming out every single week!
Many of the fears that we all have both in business and life are concerned with what other people think. What they think about what we do, what we create, the way we say things, how we look. There maybe an evolutionary basis in social fears in terms of not wanting to get kicked out of the tribe because then I will die. But these days, that is rarely actually the case.
We also talk about privilege, white privilege, our own privilege, and our fears about our voices helping or hurting others who may not as easily access platforms from which to amplify their voices.
Let’s explore what is really behind our fears and how those fears relate to our own personal realities.
