The Big Fears That Hold Creatives Back (and How to Overcome Them) – with Beth Kirby

The first step is the hardest.

Whatever goal you are chasing, it is all too easy to come up with a long list of reasons NOT to start.

What if people don’t like my work? What if I’m not good enough? What if it’s simply too late? I’ve had all of those fears myself, many in the last few days. And the truth is, we’re never going to eliminate fear completely. 

But we CAN learn to appreciate where our fear is coming from and choose to take the next small step, despite our uncertainty.

Today, I am discussing how to get over fear and START. I share the importance of taking the first step to build momentum and explain why the people who ‘make it’ don’t let failure turn into unsurmountable fear. I also explore the value in teasing out the negative thoughts that inform your fears and dismantling them logically—with a little help from your rational brain.

Finally, I walk us through some of the big fears that hold creatives back and offer advice on overcoming the fear of rejection, the fear that it has all been done before, and the fear that we are too late to the party. Listen in for insight around honoring your own timeline and learn how to confront your fears, walking through them bravely each day.
