    Prefer to read, rather than listen?
    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

Practical nuggets of wisdom for those who dare to dream bigger

I love Clare Josa's book, 'Dare to Dream Bigger', and her podcasts are so useful, coming in bite-sized nuggets that are easy on the ear but really get you thinking ... and acting on her tips, which is critical for change. Full of practical solutions and ideas for small business owners who may lack resources to help get them through the sticky patches. Highly recommended!
