The Mary Marantz Show

Feb 22, 2022

Insecurity. Overthinking. Playing small. Despite your heart’s desire to break ground on building your dream, do find yourself an expert in avoidance instead? If you’ve ever found yourself too overcome by the prospect of failure, that rather than moving forward it feels safer to remain paralyzed - then this episode is for YOU!

Tune in for Mary’s second solo episode of her Slow Growth Equals Strong Roots season, as she encourages you to stop playing small, stop staying stuck, and start moving forward on the work you were put here to do, the purpose and the calling on your life that you were put here to fulfill.

Mary is diving into:

  • The hold that the fear of failure has over our lives and what we can do about it 
  • The ways insecurity and her ‘friends’ try to make us doubt ourselves 
  • The myth that you have to have it all figured out in order to get started
  • Specific steps you can take the next time, fear, insecurity, perfectionism, or doubt tries to keep you stuck 

If you are ready to put your gifts to use and stop playing small, then make sure to tune into today’s episode for the encouragement you need to move forward today! And, be sure to stick around to the end of the episode where Mary unveils her achiever-type quiz that is live for you TODAY!
