HERE'S A SNEAK PEEK OF THE GOODNESS...
“What if they loved me? Not ‘me,’ but what if they loved the work and the business. Then what? Then what would I have to come up with, what would I have to do, and how would I feel about that?”
— Jenna on the fear of success
“It’s expanding your container. You know how when crabs switch out shells, they move into a bigger shell? That’s what it feels like. You’re like, ‘Oh, I’m so comfortable in this shell. It’s cozy, and I fit in it perfectly. I don’t want to go to a bigger shell.”
”Because then people might see me, more people might see me.”
— Lindsey + Jenna on upleveling
“Remembering everything that I’ve been able to accomplish in the past is really helpful because in the past, I’ve taken scary leaps, and I’ve come out on the other side okay, sometimes better than okay. It’s been a great, scary leap to take.”
— Lindsey on turning fear of success on its head
“People who judge their success based on how far they’ve come have so much better outcomes and enjoy the process so much more because they’re constantly seeing their successes, whereas others are constantly seeing their failures and their shortcomings where they haven’t yet met their ultimate goals.”
— Jenna on the importance of mindset shifts for managing fears of success + failure
