A lot of coaches say to be fearless. Go after your dreams and put the fear aside. But Cayla has a different approach. Fear is inevitable and we all have our own unique fears. One common thread with fear however, is financial fear. What causes this fear and how can we sit with it, acknowledge it, and use it the right way to gain financial freedom?
Cayla uses the example of a fire in this episode that helps make this concept understandable, memorable, and useful in controlling and containing our fears. Do you want to be a campfire or a wildfire? Remember that fear of failure is totally normal, but that you have the power to take that fear and failure and use it for success.
