Whether you are afraid of speaking up in front of your co-workers, or not being invited to a party of your friends, you are not alone. The fear of missing out (FOMO) and the fear of standing out (FOSO) are some of the most pervasive forms of social anxiety. FOMO and FOSO have two things in common: they trigger in us tribal-consciousness rooted fears of abandonment and not belonging; in response, they tempt us to deny ourselves our natural desire to discover and express our authentic selves. Instead of wondering who we really are and what we want, we only ask ourselves, who we need to be in order to fit in.
If you have been dealing with FOMO or FOSO, join me on Thursday, May 2nd at 9AM PT / 12PM ET for the next episode of Empowerment Radio, and learn effective ways to outgrow these fears and find the courage to be true yourself.
