“Fear has no benefits. All it will create for you is paralysis, insecurity, doubt, and hesitation. Nothing productive will come out of being afraid of something.” – Steve Sims
The pattern of giving up on yourself ends today because this week we have the phenomenal CEO & Founder of The Bluefish, Steve Sims, aka The Real Life Wizard of Oz sharing his life story, how you can live the life you want without any fear, and how to make anything happen.
On This Episode:
- How to be your most authentic self from experience and share that with the world.
- The fact that we’re all beginners at some point and how to allow yourself to learn by failing.
- How to just begin to do what you want to do and THEN work on making it better from that moment on.
- How he became so good at what he was doing because he focused on bringing value to his clients rather than solely putting all his energy into building a business.
- Steps you can take to get out of your own way when facing doubt, anxiety, or depression.
