Are you afraid to be clear? I was. Because I absolutely knew, in every bone in my body, that being really clear would move me forward in ways I couldn’t even imagine – personally and professionally – and frankly, I was afraid of that.
I know, I know, I kept saying that I wanted to make good decisions easily and be more successful, but there were some significant “yes, buts” I had been ignoring.
So why are you afraid to be clear?
I know, it’s odd, right? You invest time and money trying to get clear, trying to make the right decisions in your personal and professional life, and then it turns out you’re actually afraid to be clear and that you are the one getting in your own way!
Are you one of those people who is afraid of success? (Because, trust me, being clear will definitely make you much more successful!)
Maybe you’re one of those people who is afraid that once you’re clear, you’ll feel compelled to make a big change, and that’s too scary to you.
Maybe you are afraid that your clarity will “rock the boat” in one of your personal or professional relationships. (It usually does…)
Maybe you’re afraid that “they” will be upset with you when you are clear… and you’ll have to deal with their reactions.
To find out why you keep avoiding clarity, ask yourself this key question, and then I’ll lead you through some EFT/ Tapping to clear this fear…
