S3 : E7 \ Fear of Failure | Life, Career

Fxck Fear

06-01-2022 • 58 mins

If you scroll social media, failure is not something you see happening often but failure is something all humans face and not anything to be ashamed of. Yet, failure is real, existing in everyday life, but the fear of failure can sometimes keep people from reaching an attainable goal or even trying in the first place.

On this episode, Marika McHenry, sister of the show's host Catenya, joins the conversation to talk about her fear of failure as an entrepreneur and business owner. The two reminisce about their childhood where they recall failure not being an option in their household and how that upbringing affected them in both positive and negative ways as adults.

Marika also discusses how the fear of failure forces her to constantly perform under pressure- in extreme circumstances, and in a toxic work environment. She talks through how she kills the fear but how she's also learning to create boundaries and protect her peace.
