Overcoming The Fear of Being Fabulous
With Judith & Jim


Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous

For the Fabulous Life You Always Wanted

Welcome to our
Overcoming the Fear of Being Fabulous
Podcast Page

Judith & Jim began their podcast series in 2019. Each 7-10-minute episode was devoted to helping you move past internal (often unconscious) barriers, or what they call allegiances and holdbacks.

At the end of 2020, largely due to the challenges of COVID-19, Judith & Jim decided to end the podcast series and focus on new projects. However, their podcast episodes will remain below for you to listen to at any time.


Ep.138 ~ Unconscious Contamination

Ever thought about how areas of your life can actually be contaminated — polluted by experiences and emotional associations in your early life?

In today’s episode Judith & Jim will help you dig into this as it applies to your life, your much larger life and your current fear of being fabulous. So  please give some thought to how early upbringing can twist how people think about other people’s race, religion, and other cultures. Think about how kids learn to make fun of other kids, to bully and badger them. They weren’t born that way. They learned it. And they think it’s okay. Those are the results of contamination!

So how has your life, and the way you relate to yourself, been contaminated by your early experiences?

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.

Ep. 133 ~ The Power of the Unconscious

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!

Ep. 131 ~ Jim’s Personal Fear After His Stroke

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?

Ep.129 ~ The Inside Challenge of Marketing

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

  • Practical and works!
    by Emm2372 from United States

    The difference between Jim&Judith and other career coaches is that they understand the psychological reason behind behaviors and therefore can eradicate the root problems. I had the opportunity to talk to them a few times while working at a tech company. They never talked about any high level principle or abstract concepts, but only gave practical suggestions which no one mentioned to me before. And it worked.
