What If You Couldn’t Fail…?
I was asked this question recently and it literally stopped me in my tracks like a deer in headlights.
It was probably the biggest lightbulb moment + slap in the face combo I’ve ever experienced.
And honestly, I think it will be for you too…
So I’ll make this quick, that way you can get right to your journal and change your life.
Literally – CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
“What would you be doing right now, if you couldn’t fail?”
When I answered this, I immediately realized that I’ve been operating in a place of scarcity.
Actions lead by fear of judgement.
My truth not being spoken enough and my energy being held back to not turn people off.
That’s who I am and if I can’t FULLY be me, at all times of the day, I don’t know how to live.
I’m not living, actually.
And to be honest, it was beginning to eat at me.
But here’s the kicker…
I journaled this, realized what I was doing, acknowledged the problem, and then committed to changing it.
And guess what happened…?
Nobody got mad.
Nobody got offended.
Nobody publicly judged me.
NOTHING BAD happened…
The only things that happened were my self-acceptance improved, my fear of judgment decreased, and my self belief increased.
ALL amazing things… Yet, I was stopping myself from living this way out of fear of something that’s not real.
And for the little bit of it that was real (i.e. some people judging me)… I didn’t care. Because why would I want to associate with people who judged me for being me?!
The other thing I realized with this question was that I’d work harder at all that I do.
I’d put more out.
I’d speak on more stages, record more podcasts, create more impact and coach more people.
Because the reason I wasn’t doing more of certain things, is because I was afraid of failing.
But honestly, what’s the worst that can happen?
I learn a better way of doing it…?
I’d still be alive.
I’d still have my family.
I’d still have my business and my team.
I’d still have clients.
I’d still have my health.
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Write down this question and answer it in as much depth as possible, with as much vulnerability and transparency, with yourself, as possible.
You will realize that YOU are the only one in your way and that alllllllll the reasons you’re not accomplishing _______…. Are literally stupid. Like, you’ll laugh when you see it in writing or say it out loud. I promise.
2. Take this seriously.
This can change your life and make you 10x happier day to day, if you REALLY do this work.
