Have you ever wanted to make a big change in your life — whether in your health, relationships or even a career change — but you didn’t go for it because you were afraid?

Maybe you were afraid you’d fail. Or afraid that you’re too old or too young to go for your dream. Or maybe you were afraid of not being “perfect” right out of the gate — and looking foolish or incompetent to others.

Or maybe you’re afraid you’re not good enough, motivated enough, focused enough or intelligent enough…

The reason I’m sharing this is because we received a question that really touched my heart. It’s from a hardworking, single mom named Rejani.

She wrote in because she wants to make a big career change. Specifically, Rejani wants to heal others by entering healthcare and becoming a nurse.

But here’s the problem: she’s terrified. She’s afraid she doesn’t have the focus, motivation and support to bring her dream career to life. Plus, with the enormous responsibilities of being a working, single parent — she afraid of losing the security of her present job.

If fear has ever held you back from making a big career change, this MarieTV is for you.

In this episode, you’ll learn two must-have keys to making big change happen. Especially if the fear of failure is one of the obstacles that’s in your way.

Here’s a link to the video about The Power of Following Your Fear that I referred to in this episode.

Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear from you. Is there a dream you’re putting off, or a big career change you’re not making because you’re afraid you’ll lose motivation and let yourself down?

What’s one significant and deeply personal ‘why’ that if you focused on daily could fuel you past any challenge or roadblock that might come in your way?
