Ep #5: How to “Do” Fear

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | How to "Do" Fear

When I practiced as a lawyer, there were moments I felt fear, yet it wasn’t, and still isn’t, commonly discussed. Intellectually, I knew that fear is normal and that we all experience it on some level, but it didn’t make it any easier to deal with. If you have experienced fear – which I’m sure most of us have – you’ll be able to relate to this episode.

When we see fear as something threatening, we deprive ourselves of the opportunity to grow.  It is important to recognize that even though you may not see it, it exists in everybody, and the question is not whether you experience it, but how you go about processing it. Fear is a sign that you are growing and learning, and it is a stepping stone to any big dream you may have.

Ep #4: What Perfectionism Is Costing You

The Joyful Practice for Women Lawyers with Paula Price | What Perfectionism Is Costing You

I coach lawyers around all sorts of topics, but one that comes up time after time is perfectionism. I’ve had my own struggles with perfectionism throughout my entire life, my time as a lawyer, and funnily enough, it even came up when planning this very podcast episode about perfectionism.

You might not see it as a problem in your life. However, if you want to start creating results that are in alignment with what you truly desire, noticing where you are getting caught up in perfectionism and how it’s affecting your life is a non-negotiable.

The concept of infinite joy might sound like an impossible dream. But there is an infinite source of joy available to you right now and there always will be, and when you allow yourself to reconnect with how you feel, you can harness this concept and be able to find a lot more joy in the moment and the journey.
