I have heard it said that the “road to success” can be a torturous journey. Truthfully, I have heard it said that the “road to success” can be a bloody path. I can identify with that. First of all, we must face all sorts of external roadblocks such as the demands of other people, saturated markets, finances, and dozens of other obstacles.
Today, however, we are not going to talk about external obstacles but, rather, internal obstacles—the ones we often feel almost helpless in managing. I’m thinking about the fear failure and the need to feel like you must somehow “measure up” to your own outrageous standards.
My guest is an expert on managing your mental toughness and coping with the fear of failure. Dr Haley Perlus is a highly sought-after performance coach for athletes AND for leaders in corporations. Her list of clients is quite impressive as you find on her website in the Show Notes section of this podcast.
This show is for everyone—no matter your role in life. Mental toughness in the midst of the fear of failure can be learned, and Dr Perlus will tell us how we might find ways to master it.
