Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous: 33 Keys to Creating Your New Life by Leaving Your Old Stories Behind is a self-help guide for those that want to improve their mental health and quality of life.Why was this an important book for you to write?
The two key issues that prompted us to write “Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous” are:
one – we were both professional actors – earning good money and easily cast over and over – earlier in our lives and we both walked away for “no good reason” except we both came from families where we were outdoing anything our fathers had ever done (our mothers didn’t work) – and when we met on a blind date we spent at least an hour discussing this “fear of being fabulous” as it showed up in our own lives
As PhD psychologists and now Executive Coaches for major tech companies for nearly 2 decades – we continually see how leaders at even VP, Sr VP, and C-suite levels can’t live up to the success they have achieved and instead play themselves down, even having difficulty receiving and owning praise and compliments.
— So we knew that we needed to get our point of view out to the public in a simple, easily digestible manner!
What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?
As you can see, we narrowed the issues down to the 33 Keys we use to illuminate the various ways people have trouble living up to their own excellence, their own self-respect! We wanted to make it practical so readers can implement what we suggest in their daily lives!
How much research did you undertake for this book, and how much time did it take to put it all together?
The research goes back to our early acting careers – before we ever met on a blind date in 1987!
And of course has continued throughout all of our coaching. It probably took about a year to put it all together and get it ready to publish.
What is one thing that you hope readers take away from Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous?
The ONE THING we hope readers take away from our book is BE ALL YOU CAN BE – and OWN IT!
