Failure. If there was one word that scared the heck out of people it would be failure. So many people put off their goals, their dreams, their aspirations because they are afraid of that word. They are so afraid of the possibility of failure that it paralyzes them to never even get started. That's kind of crazy to think about isn't it? You don't even start down a path in fear of MAYBE failing at it. Think about your own life for a minute here. Has there been a time where fear of failure stopped you from taking action towards something you wanted?

The brain hates change and it thrives in a constant internal environment called homeostasis. As long as your subconscious believes that you are safer being out-of-shape then you'll be stuck. Frustrating, right? Don’t give up just yet. The good news is I’ve coached clients around this struggle by identifying their subconscious fears and formulating a plan for success around whatever they feel is holding them back. Let’s start digging around your reasons. Do you believe…Your comfortable? Being comfortable with where you are today could be the reason that you sabotage your efforts to improve your life through change. Change is scary and so is uncertainty. Your comfort zone is only holding you back from where you truly want...
