We often talk about the fear of failure, but we rarely consider the fear of success, which can be just as paralyzing. When a podcast listener asked if I’d address this, I wanted to know more. She shared that she’s been using the Life & Law PlannerTM and is now on track to reach her goals. Which is great, right? But the thought of reaching her goals is scaring her. She asked, “How do I deal with this fear?” I absolutely love this topic and can’t wait to dig in!

Things you’ll learn in this episode:

• Why we feel uncomfortable with too much happiness and success and start to assume something bad is about to happen

• What it means to hit an upper limit and the ways in which we self-sabotage our growth

• How success can create tension in our relationships or otherwise require us to show up in a new way

• What to do when you feel fear and anxiety related to your growth and success potential
