Farnoosh on Clarity
Farnoosh believes that the first step to starting anew is CLARITY.
If you are clear on what it is that you need to create for yourself and WHY, then few things can get in your way.- Farnoosh Brock
While clarity is paramount, she recognizes that it is not easy to find it. Here is an exercise she recommends to get clear on your personal vision:
- Make a list of all the things in your life you don’t want and why you don’t want them. Aim for 30 items on your list.
- Then rank them in order of how badly you want to get rid of them. You will start to see the top few things that are non-negotiable. For Farnoosh, she realized that she didn’t want to have a boss and it was non-negotiable for her.
What is your non-negotiable?
She further clarifies that while lack of confidence sometimes hinders our progress, what often holds us back from starting something new is not knowing what we want or how to get there.
Lack of confidence doesn’t hold us back so much, I think its lack of clarity.- Farnoosh Brock

Farnoosh on Fear of being Judged
I am fascinated with the psychology of confidence (recommend The Code of Confidence ) and the more I read and observe, the more I realize that women in general battle with self-confidence more so than men. I will go into more details in another post but I wanted to know Farnoosh’s take on it. As a woman, she has sympathy for our kind, for our fear of being judged. She suggests that whenever we are feeling the grip of fear of failure or fear of being judged, we just stop! We allow ourselves time to stop and think about what is the worst that could happen. Once we embrace our fears, they don’t hold us back anymore. She admits however that this issue and its solution is not so black and white.
