How is a fear of failure showing up in your life?

Are you willing to get honest about the costs of letting that fear of failure drive you?

For me, the fear of failure has driven me to a relentless work ethic.

It’s also led me to exhaustion and sickness.

Fear of failure has meant that I can find it really hard to ask for help.

When my fear of failure pops up now, I have learned to welcome it.

I say to myself: “Hello, old friend. What would you have me pay attention to now?”

If you could trust that you are already whole and complete just as you are, then what is your fear of failure really saying?

Would you be willing to hear the opposite message than you usually hear?

Would you be willing to acknowledge that what you just might need right now is rest and recovery rather than more drive?
