Are you afraid of success or are you afraid of more responsibility?

In this episode we’re going to explore why success can be so elusive and why self-sabotage rears its ugly head in moments when success is within reach.

I don’t remember when I first heard the expression “Fear of Success”, but I do remember being baffled hearing it.

Why would anyone fear success?

At that time, to me, success meant a great job with a fancy title, more money than I needed, being fit, being in a great relationship, etc.

That’s a pretty fantastic list. Most people want these things or some variation of them.

Where is the fear coming from?

As I started getting closer to actually having some of those things a light bulb went off.

That list of great things I wanted, they in and of themselves weren’t the problem. It was the thought of all the things that come with them that had me start pumping the break.

In a nutshell, it’s the added responsibility that causes us to cringe and hold back.

When you think about the life you want to be living, what new responsibilities will you need to take on if you were to achieve that life? Is there anything that causes you to hesitate?

If you are torn between the life and lifestyle you want to be living and an aversion to taking on even more responsibility, I invite you to do a Responsibility Remodel Session with me.

This is a life-changing opportunity to restructure your commitments and obligations, and get you closer to where you want to be.

In this 30-minute strategy session you will:

  • get to the heart of the work you want to be doing, or only you can do, and identify the work someone else could be doing.
  • know how to empower your team, clients, colleagues, etc., so you can work less (or refocus your energy) and still deliver.
  • have language to communicate new expectations and gain buy-in so everyone is onboard.
  • have the strategies to keep your to do list clear of non-essential time-wasters, allowing you to give your priority items your all.

This is a special session offered to help you get past those mental and physical hurdles so you can make progress on the things that are the most vital to you, and open up opportunity for you to say yes to the things that will allow for the life you want to be living.

You don’t have to work more or work harder to have that life. By restructuring what it is you do and do not do, you will actually be able to take on more responsibility and have the time and energy to enjoy the life you are living.

For that reason, this session is being offered for $97. That’s 30 minutes with me focused on the things that are most important to you. I would love and be honored to support you to set up your work and your life in a way that feels good to you. A way that honors your core values, allows you to express your gifts and talents, and allows you to enjoy life as well.

Go to to find out more and sign up for your session. I cannot wait to chat with you.

You deserve to have a life that works for you.

As always, I hope this was of value to you, and here’s to your success!
