Navigating Fear on an Evolutionary Journey
In this Changemaker Challenge episode, Cate and Grace sit down to discuss how fear gets in the way of us stepping into our potential and how to navigate that fear.
As a Yoga Health Coaching enrollment coach, Grace Edison hears a lot of different versions of fear getting in the way of stepping into potential. On an evolutionary path, fear arises because inevitably, a part or parts of you have to die in order for you to step into your potential. When we realize that fear is normal and that fear can be a good indication that we’re where we need to be, it becomes easier to navigate through the fear.
A lot of wellness pros find themselves repeating the same patterns rather than advancing on an evolutionary path, and sometimes they don’t even realize it. Yogahealer enrollment coaches, like Grace Edison, are experts at recognizing those patterns and helping potential course members recognize them too. Recognizing the patterns and being willing to change them, even in the face of fear, creates a peak performance mindset that can catapult you into your evolutionary journey.
Are you ready for an evolutionary journey? Talk to Grace!
What you’ll get out of tuning in:
- Why fear arises when you’re on an evolutionary journey.
- How many wellness pros get in the way of their own professional growth.
- What steps you need to take to get out of your own way.

- 0:00 – As a Yoga Health Coaching enrollment coach, Grace Edison hears a lot of different versions of fear getting in the way of stepping into potential. On an evolutionary path, fear arises because inevitably, a part or parts of you have to die in order for you to step into your potential. When we realize that fear is normal and that fear can be a good indication that we’re where we need to be, it becomes easier to navigate through the fear.
- 4:55 – A lot of wellness pros find themselves repeating the same patterns rather than advancing on an evolutionary path, and sometimes they don’t even realize it. Metrics are useful indicators of where you are: income, impact, network, and integrity metrics are particularly useful.
- 10:25 – Because Grace speaks to yoga health coaches before they decide to enroll, and she is able to witness their growth through the program, she has a unique advantage when it comes to determining what makes a person successful in YHC. It simply comes down to the person’s ability to recognize that they are in a repetitive pattern and to be willing to change that pattern, no matter how much fear they experience. This creates a peak performance mindset.
- 15:33 – The role of Yogahealer enrollment coaches is to make decisions from a peak performance mindset. Part of that involves pointing out how, where, and when people are getting the way of their own potential.
- 23:00 – Thinking that you need to prove you can do something before you get help with it is a common way of getting in your own way. It’s a backwards way of thinking. If you align to a proven process, like Yoga Health Coaching, you’ll prove it to yourself along your growth path. And if you’re with a group of people going in the same direction you want to go, your growth will happen so much faster.
- “The more you’re in a peak performance mindset, the better able you are to take risk. So rather than it feeling risky, it feels like stepping into potentiality. It feels like stepping beyond and through the patterned self.” — Cate Stillman
- “Like Marcus Aurelius said . . . , the obstacle is the way. Where you’re in your own way, that’s the way.” — Cate Stillman
- “No one ever got out of their own way alone. Ever.” — Cate Stillman
- “Before it’s a skill set, it’s a process. . . . It’s developing a process. It’s breaking down the inertia of the old pattern and the old way of doing things.” — Grace Edison
- “The quickest way to evolve is to get with a group that’s going in the direction where you want to end up.” — Cate Stillman
