Afraid of Getting It Wrong?

The potential for success -- in any and all areas of life -- is within each of us... but it does require that we take action. We actually have to do things, which means the possibility of making a mistake. Gasp! The fear of this stops so many great ideas before they even have a chance. Many of us have messages from the past -- either directly stated or simply inferred -- that we need to be perfect. And if we can't be perfect, it's safer not to try. And haven't you let that hold you back long enough? Yeah, I agree. Please tap along and start clearing out that old programming.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the "Tap Out Your Fears" series -- which explains the basics of EFT -- click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing fear. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I always ask folks to take full responsibility for their own well-being before tapping. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at
