This is an intentional play on words. You could, literally, always be working overtime in your job because you have a fear of losing your job. Or, you could be a slave to your fears and working all of your fears overtime in every aspect of your life, not just business.
Fear is a distraction. It is not creative. It does not assist you to achieve or avoid – anything. All distractions stop you from connecting with that which lies underneath, usually your creativity and power.
It’s not about examining your past to understand what caused you to be this way. It’s about what you truly desire to create as your life and your business, and whether the choices you are making are contributing to that outcome.
