I don’t know about you, but I have a really hard time asking for help.
Of course now that I know that my Fear Archetype™ is the Outcast, it makes a lot more sense. You see, the thing that the Outcast fears most is rejection. And so, the way that often plays out is that rather than risk being rejected, the Outcast will preemptively reject others first.
And how that has played out in my life—and my business—is that I always think I need to do everything on my own.
But the truth is that has always terrified me to ask for help.
Because what if that person would say no?

The rejection would crush me.
And so it was way safer to just not ask.
Ironic, isn’t it, that it took writing a book called Do It Scared™ to make me realize just how afraid of rejection I really am, and how big of a role this particular fear has played out in my life. And not only that, it took writing this book for me to realize just how much this particular fear has been holding me back in my life and in my business.
But that is the cool thing about identifying your fear—because once you’ve identified how fear is playing out in your life, you can actually start to do something about it.
Which brings me to this big Do It Scared moment:
I am asking you to help me.
Specifically, I am asking you, as a member of this EBA community, to help me spread the message of Do It Scared—to help get this book into as many hands as possible, and in doing so, to impact as many lives as possible.
Because whether we call it fear or anxiety or apprehension or self-doubt or just a feeling of being lost or stuck or all alone, the truth is that fear plays a huge role in most of our lives. It talks us out of going after our big goals and dreams. It tells us we’re not good enough. It tells us that we might fail, and therefore we shouldn’t even try.
But here’s the thing—we can do something about it!
We can change the way we look at fear in our own lives, and, with your help, we might even be able to change the way the whole world looks at fear too!
So will you help me?
It’s still a terrifying question to ask.
But I hope the answer is yes.
