Do You Fear Outshining Others? This Will Help.


We all have that thing. The thing that holds us back from really chasing after our God-given dreams and unleashing our destiny. For some, it’s a fear of failure. For others, it’s fear of not knowing if they will be enough or if they will measure up. Yet for others, it’s the fear of rejection. More specifically being rejected or made fun of by family, friends or peers.

Don Miller says it this way: “Losing as a means to survive socially is the stuff of a sad life.” Ouch. That’s a tough statement to hear but I love how he follows this statement up by saying “It’s sad because the best thing that can happen to your friends, your family, and even your competition is for you to succeed.”

In today's video, I talk about I'm sharing some helpful tips on overcoming our fear of outshining others in order to really show up for our calling and purpose.

Watch the video here:

In the video, you heard me say, "Successful people set the pace for the rest of us. And I believe that success is not given only to a select few. Success can be found by everyone, every person who is willing to show up long enough, consistent enough while improving themselves and giving it their all. It’s a choice."

I'd love to know, do you agree with this statement? If you do, why and if you don't, again, why? Leave your thoughts in the comments. I'd love to hear from you.
