What if I told you that you’re afraid of success?.. and the fear of success could be what's holding you back?
There are so many mindset blocks that come up as entrepreneurs but not enough of us are talking about the fear of success. Or when we do talk about it, we gloss over it like it’s something we don’t really have to deal with.
Marketers and course creators talk about making 6 figures in a weekend, and it’s easy to find ourselves reaching for our credit card to purchase yet another program promising us riches and a dreamy beach lifestyle.
But then we don’t do “the thing”. You know–the thing it really takes to be successful. The thing that scares you the most (other than spiders or heights or snakes–but bare with me here!). After 10+ years of mentoring other wedding pros, I know that the thing that holds us back can look different for everyone. But we all have something!
For you, the thing might be getting in front of the camera. It might be a product or service launch you keep delaying. It might be a constant energy drain of what people might think or what they might say if you start to really show up in your business.
