“The biggest lesson that I’ve learned. I repeat to myself every single time that every time I fail, what’s the opportunity. Every time I literally fall on my face, I used to be like, I can’t believe it. I’m so bad. See, I knew that I shouldn’t have started this. I told you that you were no good Lisa, right, the voice in my head. Even now, it doesn’t matter how many successes because the failures and the mess-ups still sting. And I can’t get rid of the sting. So now I recognize that even if it’s a private failure, I must address it.”

In This Episode
On this episode of the Get Loved Up podcast, Koya talks to entrepreneur, author and podcast host Lisa Bilyeu. Lisa takes us through her journey from devoted housewife and mother to a leader of women. Overcoming the limits of the belief system imposed upon her, Lisa has developed what she calls the radical confidence to ask questions and give herself the grace to learn new things. Instead of being held back by our fear of failure, we need to embrace it. And when we do fail, as Lisa demonstrates through her life story, we need to look for opportunities to learn. Radical confidence is not to go blindly into the storm, but to willingly face crippling doubt with a concrete plan for success.
“I thought that I was asking for too much. And as women, we all know that we think about all of these things. We want to be people pleasers. We want people to like us, we don’t want to ruffle the feathers. And so a lot of the time we end up stuck in a life that maybe we didn’t want, but we don’t feel like we have the right to ask for more.” – Lisa Bilyeu
