I have some decisions in my business to make right now that feel scary to me.
It’s something I’ve wanted to do for a long time, but because it’s something I’ve never done before I’m afraid to take the first step.
Almost a month ago now, my marketing coach Russell Brunson challenged me to send out an email to my tribe and just get it started…..and I still haven’t sent it.
I’ve been caught up in the details, in trying to make everything perfect….and if I’m being totally honest….I’ve been caught up in my own head with the fear of “what if it’s not good enough (what if I’m not good enough)?”
And then I started to realize that I actually do this a lot.
I get really excited about an idea at the beginning…..then when it comes to actually executing I get really nervous and afraid to start OR it starts to get hard and it feels easy to quit.
But I don’t want to be that kind of person.
So, I’m trying something right now.
I’m trying to train my brain and body to do hard things, even when I want to quit.
It’s one of the reasons I wanted to do that 10k a day for 10 days challenge
…..if I can push myself through all those hard miles (physically) I believe it helps to train your mind to do hard things.
And my hope is that when I can do hard things in one area….it will help me be able to do the hard things in other areas of my life.
This is what I keep telling myself right now:
Even Apple had to have a 1.0 version.
They couldn’t be on the amazing iPhone X right now (10th revision) if they would have been too afraid to put out the 1st version that was nowhere near as good as what they have now.
You can only improve and get better when you are brave enough to put yourself out there and get started.
Even if you are afraid. Even if you know you might get criticism. Even if you don’t have every detail figured out.
You can’t share your talents and gifts with the world if you are always afraid of the what-ifs.
(What I keep repeating to myself right now).
Anything you are afraid to get started on that you are holding back right now?
Reply to this email and let me know, I read and reply them all.
We’ve got this 👊
