In today’s episode, Anna looks at the fear of quitting your job and how the fear of failure might be holding you back from quitting your corporate job and escaping the 9 to 5 for good.
(2:34) “Is there one right choice out there and, if so, who decides what that choice is? And even if you do make the “wrong” choice, does that mean you’re stuck with that choice forever and ever? Does it mean that you will never again be able to make a different choice, and does it really mean that you’ve completely and forever ruined your CV and drawn a red line through all of your past experience, the skills that you’ve accumulated, and the personal brand that you’ve built and reputation that you’ve earned?”
(4:50) “The problem here is that most people haven’t defined what “enough” looks like, either in terms of the number of clients, number of projects or in terms of income, and they also haven’t set themselves a deadline when it comes to the time in which they want (or need) to achieve those goals.”
(11:07) “Of course, it’s easy to say this and to tell you to ignore what anyone else thinks, but for most of us our egos will be bruised and our confidence falter when we see that other people are judging our choices and how we are doing.”
