I was just coaching a client who was feeling really anxious.
She was worried about an upcoming internal review.
Her fear was that they didn’t think she’s a good fit for the team.
Her ultimate fear was the humiliation she would feel if she was let go.
Can you relate?
We spent some time challenging her fears. There were plenty of assumptions and unfounded predictions running riot in her brain…
But I think the most powerful thought we explored was this…
Even if the worst happened, it was 100% survivable.
Because she is a badass.
She’s smart, ambitious, resilient, committed, determined, resourceful etc. etc.
So yes, she would definitely feel BAD for a while. And then…. perhaps after some crying and soul-searching and hiding under a blanket on her sofa…. she would pick herself up, make her next best decision and move on with her life.
So, I just wanted to offer you what I offered to her this morning …
Don’t forget who you are.
YOU got yourself here.
And you will deal with whatever comes your way.
Because you, my friend, are also a badass.
