043: Don’t Be Afraid To Suck At Something New with Michelle Powell

Are you afraid to suck at something? 

Why do we put so much pressure and expectation on ourselves? 

The truth is, you are not not alone. As individuals, especially as professionals, we like to feel that we are confident, that we know what we know, and that we can handle everything on our own. The problem is, we become afraid to get out of that bubble. 

Children are great reminders that it’s okay to suck at something. They get back up when they fall down and try again. 

When we place too much expectations on ourselves we rob ourselves of the joy of the present moment. 

During this conversation with Michelle Powell we unpack why it’s better to just go out there, have fun, and realise that it’s okay to suck when doing something new.

  • The biggest killer of joy (8:46)
