Why It’s Scary To Claim What You Want

By Amira Alvarez

In this episode, we’ll be diving into the complex issue of going for what you want. Why is it so scary to claim that desire? Why is it tempting to go after what others want instead? Do you find it easier to lean into your people-pleasing ways, rather than looking out for your own sense of fulfillment? We’ll discuss the countless factors that might be affecting your ability to go after what you truly desire – whether that’s your insecurities, your self-image, your fear of losing money, your need to be liked, or even your relationship with your family. We go deep to figure out how this belief system about your desire was created – when did you learn that asking for what you truly want is dangerous? Most importantly, we’re covering how you can confront that mentality, so you can finally transform it – and step into your newfound freedom.
