Waiting for Perfect Conditions
This Coffee Break is for all of us who get to the edge of the diving board and hesitate. We think we can make the jump but there's still a voice inside that tries to convince us we're not ready, this is dangerous, and we may not make it out alive.
I bought my first home recording gear a long time ago. The thing I remember most is looking at it and then finding out that I "needed" something else to make my recordings sound more professional and polished, then I "needed" another thing to make my guitar tone sparkle, then I "needed" something else. Then when I made my first recording, it sucked - a lot and I didn't think I'd ever be able to make it sound good. But with practice, it got better and better.
I spoke with someone recently who wanted to write but had been taking several courses and wanted to wait until the courses were finished before they'd start to write. My encouragement was to go ahead and start.
Our minds create impossible scenarios for us that feel like they must be in perfect order before we act. It is a protection mechanism that many of us have and it has kept way too many people from realizing their creative dreams and potential.
The same thing goes for promoting the things we make, offer, and sell. Sometimes there is a part of us that wants to avoid failure by hesitating to act. If there isn't a legit reason to hesitate, act. Not acting because of fearing failure or rejection is de facto failure and rejection.
I want 4 more people to join me for the upcoming Discover your Marketing Modality (The totally unsexy name for an incredibly sexy outcome) workshop on Feb 25th and Mar 4th. Each session is two hours and we'll be learning a lot that will help you feel more comfortable and confident as you tell people about your work and your business. I keep my workshops small for maximum participation and impact. This one is priced low for being the pilot. It will be increased in price by at least 500% after this. It is going to be that good.
