Is fear of screwing up holding you back?
It was holding my client back in spite of her already being really, really successful.
She’s known around the world in her field and has been featured on international stages.
Yet the fear of making a mistake had her refusing to let her talks be recorded. Keeping her playing smaller than she could.
She was afraid of making a mistake and having it out in the world. Forever.
And she was days away from having her presentation recorded.
No backing out.
And she was scared of screwing it up.
Watch the video to hear more.
(Spoiler alert: she did great!)
If you have a fear of screwing something up—like posting a video or doing some public speaking (which is America’s biggest phobia, by the way)—you’ve probably heard that the way to get past it is to just do the thing. Whatever it is.
Because then you’ll realize it wasn’t so terrible and you won’t be as afraid the next time.
And if you can just do that, then go for it!
But if you can’t just make yourself do the thing—if you’re toooooo afraid to push through—then use some tapping.
Tapping can make all the difference. (I’ve seen that happen over and over.)
Because when you’ve tapped down your fear of screwing up, you can just get out there and do the thing.
Whatever it is.
Screwing up doesn’t seem like such a big deal after all.
You’ll start thinking “If I make a mistake, so what?!”
“People need me to get out there.”
“Even if I make mistakes along the way.”
So let’s get you out there in a bigger way, helping those you’re here to reach.
Don’t let fear of screwing up get in your way.
