@Mindset Mondays with DTK – Ep #117 — This one hurts…I like to do things I'm already good at … or things that I can become good at quickly. Why? Because I am paralyzed by the thought of failure. And I let that fear stop me all the time! But wait, there's more! Whenever I realize that the fear is what I've allowed to stop me, then I get to beat myself up because, well, I'm a coach … I should know better or BE better!Not only does that fear consume my energy, I'm also burning energy on self-flogging. But, as Sherman Finesilver so deftly points out, all that energy is because my worry is misplaced:"Don’t worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try."Now I have a positive spin on FOMO (fear of missing out): when I let the fear of striking out keep me from stepping up to the plate, I miss out on amazing opportunities!As I reread this email I realize how simple this all sounds … and yet, after so many ears of personal work, this one still rears its head sometimes. Wow! We're never really done, are we?What brilliant future is waiting for you to try?

Episode #117 — This one hurts

I like to do things I’m already good at … or things that I can become good at quickly. Why? Because I am paralyzed by the thought of failure. And I let that fear stop me all the time! But wait, there’s more! Whenever I realize that the fear is what I’ve allowed to stop me, then I get to beat myself up because, “well, I’m a coach … I should know better or BE better!”

Not only does that fear consume my energy, I’m also burning energy on self-flogging. But, as Sherman Finesilver so deftly points out, all that energy is because my worry is misplaced:

“Don’t worry about failure. Worry about the chances you miss when you don’t even try.”
— Sherman Finesilver

Now I have a positive spin on FOMO (fear of missing out): when I let the fear of striking out keep me from stepping up to the plate, I miss out on amazing opportunities!

As I reread this email I realize how simple this all sounds … and yet, after so many ears of personal work, this one still rears its head sometimes. Wow! We’re never really done, are we?

What brilliant future is waiting for you to try?
