EPISODE 12:

EASE ON DOWN THE ROAD: JOURNEY BEYOND FEAR

(01:05:26)

March 15, 2021

DESCRIPTION:

This week Nia spends  “tea time” in the hot seat. It’s a chat inspired by a blog post she penned about her journey from fearing success to fully embracing life. Nia shares from a place of vulnerability and honesty regarding her experiences. She expresses the origin of her fear, how she overcame it, and offers tips on how others, especially teens, might avoid falling into the same trap.

Nia’s article can be found here.

(A technical glitch resulted in a slight audio reverb in this episode. It was not fixable. However, we felt this was such an important conversation that we overrode our “fear of failure” and have released it to be found by those who might benefit.)

A SIP OF “THE TEA”

(Nia on how she felt about the concept of a “fear of failure”. )

EPISODE SUMMARY:

Join us for “tea” once more, as we ease on down the road. Listen in as Nia relays her journey of finding out that she held her own special brand of power within, all along.

Recognizing a fear of success can be tricky. It can disguise itself as a fear of failure, yet yields the similar crippling results.

Being entangled within one’s personal fear story can be disempowering and result in the loss of one of our most precious resources–time. Nia shares with us her story.

  • The difference between “fear of failure” and “fear of success”
  • What led Nia to fear success
  • How Nia navigated & overcame her fear
  • Nia’s important takeaways from the experience
  • What parents can do to help their teens
  • Advice for teens caught in their own fear stories
  • Books and resources on the subject
  • And more!

Keep boldly easing down that sometimes windy road of life!

Just keep on steppin’ and you’ll be just fine,

Deb & Nia
