You’ve got big goals for this year and even bigger dreams for the rest of your life.

 

What's really stopping you from achieving them?

 Lack of money, resources, or intelligence aren't holding you back.

 

Limiting beliefs are.

 

And the most common limiting beliefs are what I call the Four Horsemen of Fear...

Understand and Overcome The Four Horsemen of Fear

Fear of Failure

It whispers things like:

  • What if I'm not good enough to make it work?
  • This probably won't work.
  • What if I can't figure it out?

Fear of Failure tricks you into giving up before you even begin.

Fear of Ridicule

It whispers things like:

  • What will my friends and family think?
  • People will probably make fun of me.
  • What if my audience or customers hate it and leave?

Fear of Ridicule tricks you into staying small and never taking a chance.

Fear of Uncertainty

It whispers things like:

  • What if I make the wrong choice?
  • I need more info to feel "ready."
  • I have too many ideas to choose from.

Fear of Uncertainty paralyzes you in a constant state of over-analysis.

Fear of Success

It whispers things like:

  • What if I lose my ambition?
  • What if I become corrupted by power and influence?
  • What if I don't deserve success?

Fear of Success tricks you into abandoning your path right as you're on the edge of victory.

Why the Four Horsemen of Fear Show Up

When we’re emotionally invested in our work, the Four Horsemen of Fear rear their ugly heads.

This a good thing—they’re a signal you’re on the right path.

But if you don’t learn how to deal with them, they’ll stop you from ever making your ideal life a reality.

Why the Best Productivity Advice Has Failed You

The Horsemen are subtle.

They trick us into engaging in self-sabotaging behaviors like:

  • Imposter Syndrome
  • Constant self-doubt
  • Endless procrastination
  • Shiny Object Syndrome 
  • Unconquerable perfectionism
  • Never-ending analysis paralysis

Most productivity advice only addresses superficial symptoms.

But if the root cause to why you haven't made your ideal life a reality is fear, then all the productivity advice in the world won't help.

  • No amount of time blocking will give you the confidence you're on the right path.
  • An Eisenhower Matrix won't give you the clarity to overcome what's standing in your way.
  • The 80/20 Principle won't give you the courage to take action to make your ideal life a reality.

Which is why despite all the books you've read, all the courses you've taken, and all the "gurus" you've followed, you're still stuck. 

You don't need more productivity "hacks" that only address superficial symptoms.

 

You need to understand  and overcome the root cause:

Hey, I'm Dr. Corey Wilks, aka the "Psychologist for Creators"

I believe too many people die regretting not having done more with their lives because they let fear stop them.

So I want to help as many creators reach their potential as I can with the time I have left.

Time is our most precious resource—it’s the one thing we can never get more of once it’s gone.

Everything I do is about helping people like you reach their potential and make the most of the time they have left.

I've worked with some of the biggest names in the creator space like Ali Abdaal, and have worked with creator communities like:

  • David Perell's Write of Passage
  • Jay Clouse's Creator Science Lab
  • Justin Moore's Brand Deal Wizard
  • Tim Stoddart's Copyblogger Academy
  • Ali Abdaal's Part-Time YouTuber Academy

I'm also a contributor for Psychology Today, where I write about the psychology of human flourishing, fulfillment, and what gets in our way.

I also write a free weekly newsletter, Creator Alchemy, where I explore the psychology behind how to succeed as a creator and reach your potential in life and business.

I’ve spent the last 15+ years studying psychology and helping people clarify what matters, overcome limiting beliefs, and reach their potential in life and business.

I'd love to help you do the same.

I'm already further down multiple paths than I could've imagined."

Stop Waiting for "Some Day"

How many times have you sat around daydreaming about having the freedom to control your schedule, build a business doing meaningful work that supports your lifestyle, and make the most of the time you have left?

 But, for some reason, you keep telling yourself:

  • "Someday, I'll start tapping into my potential."
  • "Someday, I'll build a business that supports a life where I feel free every single day."
  • "Someday, I'll stop procrastinating on taking action toward aligning my life and business with what matters most."

Here's a cold hard fact of life:

One day, you'll be out of "somedays."

This is why my right tattoo sleeve is dedicated to the Stoic concept of memento mori. It means "remember you will die." It's a reminder to make the most of the time we have left and use our mortality as a motivator to live fully.

To turn "someday" into "today."

Right now, while we still have it.

Because time is our most precious resource. Why spend it letting fear keep us stuck doing unfulfilling work?

Two years ago, I almost died.

As I laid in the hospital bed waiting to be transferred for the life-saving procedure, not knowing if I'd live to see the morning, I asked myself, "If this had been my last week alive, am I satisfied with how I spent my time?"

Thankfully, my answer was "yes." But a few weeks before that fateful night, it would've been "no."

I'd recently left an unfulfilling career and started down the path of being a solopreneur and content creator. I struggled with self-doubt, self-sabotaging behaviors, and had no idea how to make my ideal life a reality.

But I refused to spend my entire life in mediocrity, doing unfulfilling work, and letting fear hold me back from reaching my potential.

Over time, I've developed the clarity, strategy, and accountability to make it happen. 

Every single day since that fateful night has felt like I'm living fully, doing work that resonates with me and positively impacts the world, and allows me to support my lifestyle and my loved ones.

Because one day, I'll be out of "somedays."

Every week since that fateful night, I ask myself the same question: "If this had been my last week alive, am I satisfied with how I spent my time?"

Because one day, it will have been my last week alive.

With my last breath, I want to honestly be able to say, "YES."

And I want to help you do the same.

The systems and insights you'll build throughout this coaching group are designed to help you get hyper clear on what truly matters, identify what's standing in your way, and develop strategies to overcome them.

So you can build a thriving life and business aligned with your values and reach your potential and spend your most precious resources—time—doing meaningful, purpose-driven work that fulfills you.

The 4 Horsemen of Fear trick you into staying small, doubting your capabilities, and delaying your dreams.

If you're ready to stop waiting for "someday," to put yourself and your ideas out into the world, apply to join the next cohort now.
