Willingness to feel ANY emotion

Uncategorized Oct 18, 2022

How many times have you not gone after something you want, because you fear future failure, embarrassment, disappointment or rejection? 

 

I’m pretty sure we’ve all been there. 

 

I see it come up in career advancement a LOT … we don’t: 

 

  • take on profile-raising projects
  • talk about our ambitions to get promoted
  • go after new opportunities (unless we’re 110% ready). 

 

Because they all risk failure …. in public!  

 

And…as much as we prepare or strategize, the truth is, we can’t control the world. 

 

So, if you want to totally avoid feeling embarrassment, disappointment or rejection, the safest policy is not to go after anything at all. 

 

Forget about the ‘big life’ you want for yourself. Stay where you are. 

 

Obviously, that is NOT what I recommend.  

 

I actually want to offer this instead…

 

What if feeling all of those things wasn’t a problem? 

 

Really think about it. 

 

Imagine if you had NO fear of those emotions. What could you accomplish?

 

That’s the version of self-confidence that I teach. Not a delusional belief that you’ll never fail, but the willingness to take action anyway, because you’re not afraid of emotion. 

 

The successes you accumulate doing that, will FAR outweigh the failures. 

 

I’m not saying it’s easy. 

 

But the truth is - Big Goals = Big Emotions

 

Avoid them at your peril. ☺
