Conquer Your Personal Dragons

Change your mindset, and you can change the world.

When we know what we want, what sabotages our success and prevents us from getting what we desire most? Dragons.

Every one of us has a dragon or two or three, and they aren’t the cute ones from the hit show “Game of Thrones” that everyone wishes they could have as a pet. 😉

Khaleesi's Dragons, Game of Thrones

Our dragons come in the form of self-doubt, procrastination, and other limiting beliefs. In today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV I’m going to share some of the most common dragons people have, and help you identify and conquer the ones that are holding you back from reaching your full potential.

Watch the episode below (or watch on YouTube):

Now I want to hear from you: What would you say is your peskiest personal dragon? If you’re comfortable sharing your new mantra too, I’d love to hear it.

P.S. This is one of the topics from my brand spankin’ new book, Conquer: A Manifesto For Achieving What You Want Most, which is now available digitally on iBooks, Kobo, Sony E-Book Store, and of course on Amazon. Check it out:

  1. This past weekend as I was trying to work on the course I hope to launch in July, I saw one of my big fears straight in the eye. I am afraid that I will not be able to create systems and frameworks that will really work for people. It’s pretty obvious how this is affecting me: I’m stressed out, less productive, and because of this paralyzing fear, not getting much done for my course either. I’ve been working on letting this go for a few days now and it’s definitely getting better. Here is my affirmation: I have boundless creativity and intuition and easily create personal development systems that work.

    I love your advice, and can’t wait to read your manifesto! Here’s one thing I have done in addition to all of the great stuff you recommend: look for evidence against my fear. Once I realized what I was afraid of, I paid close attention to every new idea I had that would build my system, and told myself “Aha! See, you do come up with a lot of great ideas! You just need to pay more attention to how great you are.” After this happened a number of times, I realized just how unbased my fear was after all.

  2. An other amazing video! The way I can relate to this is when I realized a couple weeks ago that my biggest fear was actually to become successful. What would others think of me? What would others say about me? It’s always less scary to keep on playing small than to step up and play a bigger game because it requires from us to get out of our comfort zone.

    Here is a quote from Marianne Williamsonson that identifies both my dragon and my new mantra:

    “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.’ We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”

    And woot, I just got my own copy of “Conquer”, it looks gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your success tips with us Natalie.

    Looking forward to next week’s video,

  3. Sometimes I hear those Dragons wanting to sneak up to me, however, with continued positive thoughts they are never able to land. I feel very strong about believing in yourself and what you have set out to do/your goals. Eventually they will all come to you. And go with your gut instinct-its always sends a strong message that people too often forget to listen to. Grab hold of your dragons, and do not let other people’s dragons enter your circle of life!!

  4. Hi Natalie: Too bad that in the West, dragons have such a bad rep – dragons seriously need their own publicist hahaha 🙂 – , when here in Asia (or in East Asia at least), dragons are considered to be harbingers of luck and prosperity.

    But having said that, I believe that one of my “dragons” is my fear of risk-esp risk that involves spending money in order to pay for a coach or take a course, whatever. I’m always worried of the ROI owing to bad decisions that I made in the past. It’s like this: I’m afraid to spend this money because there’s no way I can recover this because I won’t succeed and I might get cancer and I wont be able to pay for chemotherapy and here in this blasted developing country public healthcare sucks, etcetera….” I know, right? I have lots of issues about risks

    These days, however, I’m doing a lot of inner work. telling myself that this is just a modest risk, that i have a safety net and if i really really want to have this life that I want I must learn to take a risk, let go and let Goddess
