I mentioned in an earlier post that I have finished reading
. I am now going to go back and reread each individual section again, this time with a fine-toothed comb. I'm also going to blog about it (and highlight in my book key points, but you can't see that over the computer).
What is holding me back?
I think the thing holding me back the most is fear of failure. Like everyone else, I enjoy success. I don't like to fail at things. It bothers me. I'm a perfectionist. I like to do things right, and to do them well.
In order to be successful at my SparkJourney, I need to let go of this fear. I think that I can honestly say that I am learning to do just this! It's taking some time, but my downward spirals are now leading to upward successes. No more one step forward, two steps back. Now it's two steps forward, and one step back.
