Play • 26 min

Overcoming your fear of failing is a big deal....

Is fear holding you back from living a healthy free life?

Does your fear of failure keep you stuck in an unhealthy lifestyle, unable to lose weight or change your habits?


If so, you’re not alone. I know how it feels to be afraid of failing or making mistakes, but here’s the thing… fear doesn’t move you forward.


At its core, the fear of failure is an intense feeling of anxiety or apprehension about not meeting our expectations or the expectations of others.

This fear can manifest in a variety of ways, such as 

  • fear of making mistakes, 
  • fear of disappointing others, 
  • or fear of not being good enough.

When it comes to health and wellness, and weight loss especially the fear of failure may manifest 

  • as a fear of not being able to stick to a new diet or exercise routine, 
  • or a fear of not seeing the desired results,
  • or worse -- fear of succeeding then failing.

Do any of those symptoms resonate with you?

If so, I will help you overcome. First, we remember to invite God into your Healthy Free Life journey because it’s our faith in God that helps us overcome our fear of failure, embrace a growth mindset, and reach our health goals.

We will learn how to:

  • Recognize the lies that fuel our fear.
  • Develop a growth mindset.
  • Learn from failures and mistakes.
  • Use strategies for overcoming this fear and take action towards our health goals.

As Christian women, we know that we are called to take care of our bodies and honor God with our health, and we cannot let fear hold us back from doing so.

The reality is there are no failures, only ineffective solutions.


“There is a 1 in 6 chance that you are going to die from a preventable cardiac condition – from heart disease. That is what you should fear… You’ve got to get healthy, there is no other option here.”


Take heart, dear one. Because when you take a body-mind-spirit approach, as we do here at Healthy Free Life, PLUS you couple it with developing healthy habits the right way, like I will teach you in the Academy… you will succeed. This is the strategy you’ve been missing all your life!


You are not alone. Together, we can...

  • Trust in God's plan and purpose for our lives.
  • Pray for strength and guidance.
  • Find encouragement in scripture.
