Are you scared of being “ordinary”? — as if that relegates you to the dull, low-achieving, not-living-life-to-the full bucket.
Or maybe you’re afraid of failing, so you only do things you’re already good at. You’d love to take more risks, but only if you don’t look bad.
Or maybe you’re scared of really shining bright, because that would mean you’re a bit full of yourself. So, you dim your light and play it safe.
If any of these conundrums have you nodding, you’re in the right place. I’m doing a Q&A with author and clinical psychologist, Michaela Thomas.
Michaela specialises in perfectionism and helping busy, stressed-out people find balance over burnout. She also runs the Pause Purpose Play podcast.
You’ll learn where the pressure to be extraordinary can come from.
You’ll learn techniques to take the sting out of failure.
And you’ll consider if you’re dimming your light with your accomplishments, even if you are pushing so hard for success.
Join us! Practical and pacey. Michaela is a real delight.
