This week's episode is for you if you're heading towards the end of the year and you're ready to wrap things up by discovering what you learned from this year, so you don't have to repeat the same old story with a different theme tunes and different actors next year. In fact, I often find that this process is MORE important than having New Year Resolutions... It's the key to growing your business more easily and making a bigger difference in the world. It's different to looking back at what we achieved and whether we met our goals - and can create breakthroughs for you.

Today we are talking about what happens when worries get in the way of our dreams. This one's for you if you have ever had a big dream, a challenge or a comfort zone stretch and you've found yourself secretly procrastinating, distracting yourself, being too busy or telling yourself stories that keep you up at 3am, wondering if you're good enough to make it happen. I'm going to explain why this happens and give you a super-simple antidote!

This week I've had a potent reminder of what happens when fear gets in the way of our dreams. It doesn't matter whether those dreams are changing the world or passing exams or learning to parachute or saying hello to Mums at the school gate or introducing yourself at a networking event or giving a presentation or saying yes to a comfort-zone-stretching opportunity: fear is the biggest killer of hopes and dreams. My main objective this week was to finish the final edits for my new novel - First, Tell No Lies - to get the proof-reading changes done and to work with the cover designer to finish the graphics. I haven't touched the project. Instead, I've been a workaholic, barely pausing to breathe, let alone eat, grumpy with my kids, suddenly deciding I had to set up a whole different project which, frankly, could have waited. I've done 14 hour days, I've taught masterclasses, I've worked with clients, I've got my new author website up and running (it's looking great, even if I'm biased), I've worked on my media kit and I've been active in the EU VAT Action Campaign again, working with people to mitigate the impact of Brexit on UK microbusinesses. I'm even in fresh discussions on setting up the UK online business association, for which I had a meeting with the UK's Small Business Minster back in May. But I haven't once opened my laptop to edit my book. Why? Well, I've been too busy, haven't I? No. Most of that could have waited. The truth is that I have been scared. Scared to finish my new novel. Despite my editor loving it. Despite my proof-reader loving it. If I don't finish it, I can't publish it, so I won't risk readers not liking it. I felt scared they might think it's boring. In case it's badly written. In case they leave bad reviews. In case it's not good enough. In case I'm not good enough. (This stuff always comes down to identity-level fears, which is why 'mindset' approaches can feel like sticky plasters). The fact that book one - You Take Yourself With You - has been described by so many readers as 'unputdownable' actually makes it worse. Those reviews were a dream-come-true for me. But it adds in a new batch of fears: Can I do it again? What if I let them down and they're too polite to tell me they're disappointed? What if the trolls aren't quite so polite? Fifteen years ago, back when I was studying to become an NLP Trainer, I spent a lot of time reading the work of Milton Erickson, the father of modern hypnosis. One of the stories told about him was of working with an Olympic shooting team. They had to fire twenty shots as perfectly as possible, hitting the middle of the target. They could all do it, but once they had hit sixteen, seventeen, eighteen perfect shots, the pressure got to much and they would flunk it. He trained them to see each shot as a single event, unconnected to the others, so that the subconscious expectations didn't create fears that sabotaged their performance. And they won the medals. It's the same with anything we're secretly scared of. "Oh, my last presentation was great, but I'm bound to mess up this one. There's no way I could do that again." "Sure, the last three exams were good, but I can't keep up that track record. This one is bound to be awful." "My last two clients loved my work, but there's no way I can keep up that winning streak. I'm bound to fail soon." I have a friend who was a midwife and she even quit her career over this, having helped at 2,000 births of healthy babies and being constantly scared that she was 'due' the one that would go wrong. She couldn't handle t...

Wish you could have been at Chris Ducker's fabulous Youpreneur Summit last weekend? FOMO-be-gone! Here are ten surprising things I learned there - and you won't want to miss them! And if you were there, I'd love to hear which actions you're taking, based on what you learned. As a massive introvert (though that doesn't mean I'm shy), I don't go to many big events. I choose carefully! But after Chris Ducker's 2017 Youpreneur Summit, I booked my 2018 ticket even before I left. Learning from world experts is great, but I got even more value from the round-table masterminds we did during the event. And this year was just as good for that. I love meeting people I feel I already know from the virtual world and hugging like old friends. It kick-starts relationship-building and JV ideas in a way that a random breakfast networking meeting could never achieve. So I hope you enjoy listening to ten surprising things I learned at this year's Youpreneur Summit - they are all things I will be implementing in my business over the next thirty days. And if you were there, too - hello! - let me know in the comments what you learned, too!

Tweetable Here Are The Ten Youpreneur Summit Presenters I Mention:

  1. Carrie Wilkerson - www.carriewilkerson.com

Entrepreneurial fear - the fear of taking inspired action towards our dreams - it's what keeps us stuck, dreaming big, but playing small. So why are so many of the Big Names in the business world telling us it doesn't exist - or that we're somehow weak or not cut out for running a business, if we feel it? Isn't it time to ditch the taboo about this elephant in the room? Today's episode of the Dare to Dream Bigger podcast is perfect for you if you have ever felt secretly scared, particularly if you felt you couldn't talk about it. And I share with you how to adapt my ABC process to mean you no longer have to feel the fear and do it anyway.

Tweetable Is entrepreneurial fear a 'thing' for you?

I'd love to hear from you!

  • Do you think too many of our gurus are pretending that fear doesn't really exist?
  • How do you think fear gets in the way of taking action on our dreams?
  • What are your strategies for turning this around?

I skived off work yesterday. For a full two hours. Yes, I know I'm the boss, but as a self-confessed workaholic, I rarely take time off when the kids are at school. But yesterday the sunshine was calling me and there was the small matter of desperately needing to get some fab new clothes to wear to Chris Ducker's Youpreneur Summit in London, in a couple of weeks' time. I found myself walking down the street in my new town of Salisbury (cathedral above - spire 123m, in case you ever need to know), wallet and keys in hand, almost without realising. Over the next two hours, I learned some valuable life lessons that I hadn't expected. And I share them with you in today's Dare to Dream Bigger podcast episode. And, as promised in the episode, here's a sneak peek at the dress and boots!

Tweetables: I'd love to hear from you:

I'd love to hear your answers to the two questions I ask at the end - via the comments. And in other news: are you joining me for today's live masterclass?

How To Write Your World-Changing Book - Made Easy

During the training session, I'm going to be taking you through:
  • 10 reasons why your dream clients WISH you would write your book - aka why it's a brilliant idea and could be really exciting
  • 5 hidden reasons why most people will never do it - and how to avoid them
  • My step-by-step process for going from 'nice idea' to 'brilliant, biz-growing book'
I know that the idea of writing a book can feel scary - even overwhelming. I know it can feel hard to imagine how you might find the time - or to know where to start - or to figure out which book to write and how. So my intention today is to help you with that - and more - to help you to turn things around to see what you could create, with the right support. Here's where to grab your spot:
www.clarejosa.com/authormastermind/masterclass/ Yes, there will be a replay until 7pm on Sunday (only if you have registered, above), but please do join us live, if you can - you'll get so much more from the session. See you there? x Clare Clare Josa | Author | Speaker | Mentor P.S. Have you grabbed your spot on my November Author Mastermind yet? P.P.S. If you're at the Youpreneur Summit on 3rd / 4th / 5th November, make sure you say hello!

Do you ever get to the end of the year and beat yourself up because you didn't achieve what you set out to do in the past twelve months? And then set tonnes more New Year Resolutions at the start of January, ready to secretly repeat that cycle? It doesn't have to be that way! In fact, 15+ years of mentoring Passionate World Changers has taught me that there are three main reasons why New Year Resolutions don't work. And this episode of the Dare to Dream Bigger podcast takes you through them - and what you could be doing instead. Plus it tells you how to join me for two masterclasses I'm running on this in January. Are you in?
