There is a trap waiting. It springs on you, sometimes even before you get started with saving your marriage. That same trap is waiting for you at every point of the process. You can easily get stuck in it.
What’s the trap? I call it the FOF Trap — Fear of Failure Trap.
We humans have a disproportionate fear of failure that we can either set aside or allow to trap us.
How many actions and options have you missed because you were afraid it might not work out? How many opportunities pass us all by because we are afraid that it we might fail? Oddly, when we allow FOF to dominate, we absolutely fail and miss out.
Don’t let this trap keep you from restoring your relationship. Decide there is another option. Move boldly toward your efforts.
Listen to this week’s podcast to find out how to avoid the FOF Trap.
