Ep.136 ~ Our Own Hold-Backs Part 2~Jim’s Fear of Being Fabulous ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous ~ Podcast

Today it’s Jim’s turn to share some of his stories that demonstrate where his Fear of Being Fabulous originated.

When you listen to Jim describe a bit of his background and the early roots of his Fear Of Being Fabulous, see what comes to mind from your own early experiences where you thought you had to be humble and modest, playing down your own excellence and expertise. That playing down is what J & J call “hold-backs” which are most often unconscious until you get awakened to how they are interfering with your larger more satisfying life. And that’s what “The Double Js” are dedicated to helping you discover.

Ep. 133 ~ The Power of the Unconscious ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous ~ Podcast

Who are you really? And what is not the REAL you?

Many people associate the unconscious with forbidden feelings. Perhaps sexual, perhaps rageful, or anything else that’s considered forbidden. But we prefer to look at what went into your mind to help create The Fear Of Being Fabulous before you were old enough to evaluate what is actually true for you – who you really are – and what is not the real you.

That’s why J & J devote this podcast to helping you explore the power of the unconscious and how it can be controlling you without your awareness or understanding.

And The Double Js will also give you some useful tips to help you weed out unconscious prohibitions that are holding you back!

Ep. 131 ~ Jim’s Personal Fear After His Stroke ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous Podcast

Jim’s Personal Fear of Being Fabulous Struggle After a Stroke in 2016

Sometimes the Fear of Being Fabulous can have tangible, physical roots. For example, Jim’s stroke in October 2016 mostly hit the muscles in his mouth and therefore his speech. Even though most people now think he sounds “normal,” never having heard him before, Jim needed to explain his own Fear of Being Fabulous to you so you understand that it’s been caused by not trusting how he sounds when he speaks. Notice how Jim responds when Judith points out how he finds it difficult to give himself credit for Being Fabulous at speaking on their podcasts and doing executive coaching. Can you relate to that?

Ep.129 ~ The Inside Challenge of Marketing ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous—Podcast

They’re not prepared for what comes next

There was a time when we thought marketing was a sham, corrupt, a way to snooker people into buying something they didn’t really want or need. But then we began to learn about the actual benefits of marketing for everyone involved. And for our episode today we have the pleasure of talking with someone who has been a special person to us– and a marketing person as well – Denise Cassino.        

Denise is an Internet Marketing Specialist having launched hundreds of authors to #1 Bestseller status on Amazon.com in a particular category. And she did that for both of Jim’s first two biographical novels – Worship of Hollow Gods and An Ambition to Belong

As Denise explains during our interview, “Lots of people write books, and even get them published. But they’re not prepared for what comes next.”

Ep.128 ~ Do You Rely On Luck Or Fate? ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous—Podcast

How do you respond to a compliment or some form of success?

So often people say their success is a matter of “luck” or “fate.” They’ll say it in response to a compliment or the successful outcome of a job interview or first date.

Why would people hand off these important issues and positive results to “luck” or “fate” rather than their own decisions, their own behavior, their own intelligence, their own excellence?

This isn’t just about receiving. It’s about owning responsibility for your choices, your actions, your excellence, and success in whatever ways it manifests. So we ask, how can you feel rightfully fabulous, when you’re not owning who you actually are?

Ep.127 ~ How Well Do You Handle Disappointment? ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous—Podcast

How do you respond when you’re not …

It’s a certainty, a fact that there will always be disappointment in life. So the most important question is – how do you respond when you experience those shocks, hurts, and sometimes soul-draining, devastating events?

Do you collapse, feel like a victim, decide it’s too much to bear? Or do you experience the frustration, the pain and acknowledge that it is real, without covering it over with false humor or developing a stiff upper lip.

Because how you respond to being disappointed is either a recipe for gratitude and a life well-lived, or a deeply contaminated recipe for bitterness and the chronic experience of defeat — no matter the actual realities of your current life.

Ep.125 ~ Speaking Up In Your Own Defense ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous-Podcast

Do you even dare do it?

When you eat out, do you feel comfortable returning dishes or drinks that weren’t prepared like you ordered? Do you even dare do it?

We’ve talked with so many people who told us they were horrified at the thought of sending back a well-done hamburger when they ordered rare; or limp bacon when they ordered super crispy; or a malt that’s delivered ahead of your meal when you specified that you wanted it with your meal and not before.

Even when we point out that they are paying for something they specified to be made a certain way, they shake their head and are clearly unable to be in charge of themselves in this regard. So today we are digging into the blocks that prevent speaking up in your own defense!

Ep.123 ~ Being Nice Versus Honest ~ Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous-Podcast

Are you more comfortable being nice or being honest??

How often do you feel you have to be “nice” rather than honest?  

So often people short change the other person and themselves by reducing their feedback, whether at work or in their personal lives, to “being nice”, when they could provide valuable communication if they were simply, and respectfully honest.

Why would you avoid telling the truth, in favor of being “nice”?

Most people say it’s because they are afraid of hurting someone’s feelings. But think about it this way — as the Dean of my graduate school once said, “Nice folks leave a wake of destruction in their path.”

So make sure to listen as we unpack that bit of true wisdom!
