IT GIRL RADIO EPISODE #65: Don’t Let Fear Hold You Back
Have you ever wanted to do something, but been held back by the fear of what other people would say or think? Are you too afraid to step outside your comfort zone and take control of your own life? On this episode of It Girl Radio, my guest is Courtney Dow, a leader in doTERRA Essential Oils, and she talks about how she worked through these mindset issues. Courtney worked in various industries — finance, digital marketing, events, to name a few — before leaving her career behind to become a stay-at-home mom to her daughter. She had been using doTERRA Essential Oils in her home and life, and finally decided to take the plunge and make it her business as well. Courtney shares how taking action helped to boost her confidence and made her step outside her comfort zone while still giving her the flexibility to be a stay-at-home mom.
Fear and self-doubt is a common and natural part of starting something new, but when we get rid of the negative stories we tell ourselves about what is possible, we expand our possibilities. Courtney and I discuss how she worked through her mindset issues of what people would think of her, and her motivations for stepping outside her comfort zone.
If old stories or insecurities around what other people think of you are holding you back from living your best life and starting whatever business that you desire, this episode is going to be just the push you need. Tune in to be inspired by Courtney’s story, and to find out how taking action can change your life too!
