Ep 230 Fear of Failing


In this episode, I dive into the role of extrinsic and intrinsic fear in creating mid-year doldrums in our minds. I am to offer an alternative way to look at remaining year, and the opportunity it brings.


These ‘what have you achieved by mid-year’ prompts can lead us down a spiral of self-criticism and feelings of insufficiency. I talk about importance of intentions as opposed to goals. By focusing on intentions, we introverts feel more empowered and purposeful in  our quest for growth, without succumbing to externally imposed expectations or experiencing cognitive dissonance between personal values and professional demands.


Intention setting is where fulfillment and alignment flourishes.


Key Points

Focus on intentions before goals

Align actions with your principles/values

Reduce fear of failure through being pragmatic
