    Episode 4: Solo Episode: Micro Failings and the Fear of Success.

    Episode 4: Solo Episode: Micro Failings and the Fear of Success.

    What a month it’s been. I’ve been very much living this failure stuff in real time. So I’m chatting about it here. Despite my cold ridden and croaky voice! This episode is all about those insidious small failures that we beat ourselves with and how they feed into a wider fear of success. That lesser known (or talked about) fear which can be just as acute as the fear failure.
