3 Big Questions for You
Today Judith & Jim have 3 big questions for you! Because they want you to better understand “Where in your life is your Unconscious holding you back?” They are following up on the topic of Unconscious Allegiances and Forbiddances, and will be helping you examine the difference between those areas in your life where you are doing really well – maybe even amazing – and those where you feel like the mysteries of the universe have you trapped and you can’t get out!
Today it’s Jim’s turn to share some of his stories that demonstrate where his Fear of Being Fabulous originated.
When you listen to Jim describe a bit of his background and the early roots of his Fear Of Being Fabulous, see what comes to mind from your own early experiences where you thought you had to be humble and modest, playing down your own excellence and expertise. That playing down is what J & J call “hold-backs” which are most often unconscious until you get awakened to how they are interfering with your larger more satisfying life. And that’s what “The Double Js” are dedicated to helping you discover.

Today’s episode is about Judith’s Fear Of Being Fabulous
Judith & Jim’s expertise in helping people with Overcoming The Fear Of Being Fabulous didn’t just come from working with clients in their private practice over many years and now coaching tech industry executives. It started with their own personal challenges.
Today you’ll gain insight into a bit of Judith’s background and how it helped create personal and professional challenges for her – so you can hopefully relate them to your own life.
Next week it’s Jim’s turn to share some stories about his holdbacks.
This isn’t some kind of psycho-jargon.
It’s important to understand the specific terms Judith & Jim use to describe how The Fear Of Being Fabulous is created, how it’s maintained, and what’s involved in order for you to actually Overcome The Fear Of Being Fabulous.
This isn’t some kind of psycho-jargon. J & J’s specific terms emerged through the process of coaching and teaching people about The Fear Of Being Fabulous, and continually exploring their own experiences with it as well.
In this episode you’ll find out what “Allegiances” and Forbiddances” are all about. And you’ll also discover the dangers of “The Love Grip.” Get ready to compare your own experiences with what The Double Js will be sharing with you.
Who are you really? And what is not the REAL you?
Many people associate the unconscious with forbidden feelings. Perhaps sexual, perhaps rageful, or anything else that’s considered forbidden. But we prefer to look at what went into your mind to help create The Fear Of Being Fabulous before you were old enough to evaluate what is actually true for you – who you really are – and what is not the real you.
That’s why J & J devote this podcast to helping you explore the power of the unconscious and how it can be controlling you without your awareness or understanding.
And The Double Js will also give you some useful tips to help you weed out unconscious prohibitions that are holding you back!
Do you worry about The Imposter Syndrome?
Do you refrain from speaking up at meetings or with friends for fear you’ll be seen as a bossy, imposing know-it-all? Do you struggle with anxiety and/or depression? Are you a chronic procrastinator? Perhaps you cater to old values you learned in childhood and don’t even recognize what it’s costing you. These are just a small sampling of what you’ll discover about The Signs and Signals of ways that people suffer from the Fear of Being Fabulous—and how it may be holding you back from a much larger, happier life.
Jim’s Personal Fear of Being Fabulous Struggle After a Stroke in 2016
Sometimes the Fear of Being Fabulous can have tangible, physical roots. For example, Jim’s stroke in October 2016 mostly hit the muscles in his mouth and therefore his speech. Even though most people now think he sounds “normal,” never having heard him before, Jim needed to explain his own Fear of Being Fabulous to you so you understand that it’s been caused by not trusting how he sounds when he speaks. Notice how Jim responds when Judith points out how he finds it difficult to give himself credit for Being Fabulous at speaking on their podcasts and doing executive coaching. Can you relate to that?
You’ll be sure to see yourself here!
Nearly everyone holds themselves back from the super success they could enjoy. Procrastination! Self-doubt! Anxiety! Judith & Jim describe how unconscious allegiances and hold-backs produce The Fear of Being Fabulous plus the underpinnings and the roots of deep hold-backs.
And for this and every podcast episode, Judith & Jim’s goal is to leave you more empowered and inspired to expand your freedom to be fully you!
They’re not prepared for what comes next
There was a time when we thought marketing was a sham, corrupt, a way to snooker people into buying something they didn’t really want or need. But then we began to learn about the actual benefits of marketing for everyone involved. And for our episode today we have the pleasure of talking with someone who has been a special person to us– and a marketing person as well – Denise Cassino.
Denise is an Internet Marketing Specialist having launched hundreds of authors to #1 Bestseller status on Amazon.com in a particular category. And she did that for both of Jim’s first two biographical novels – Worship of Hollow Gods and An Ambition to Belong
As Denise explains during our interview,
How do you respond to a compliment or some form of success?
So often people say their success is a matter of “luck” or “fate.” They’ll say it in response to a compliment or the successful outcome of a job interview or first date.
Why would people hand off these important issues and positive results to “luck” or “fate” rather than their own decisions, their own behavior, their own intelligence, their own excellence?
This isn’t just about receiving. It’s about owning responsibility for your choices, your actions, your excellence, and success in whatever ways it manifests. So we ask, how can you feel rightfully fabulous, when you’re not owning who you actually are?
