It’s a moment you’ll never forget … your adrenaline is pumping, and the most intense feeling has come over you.
And before you take the plunge, … words can not fully explain it.
The freefall instills a sweet sense of freedom (or so you thought).
An act one may deem as sensory overload.
And if you’ve been on this roller coaster ride, you know this is not a description of skydiving but merely the life of an entrepreneur.
Each day our work drums up another challenge, fear of this or that sets in.
And the feeling of needing to ‘do it all’ is often too much.
You start to freefall at a speed of 120 mph, and your mind struggles to comprehend what is taking place.
You’re overwhelmed, tongue-tied, and left to your own devices.
But does it have to be this way?
You hang on for dear life as the world moves along.
And in no time flat, you’ve wasted time and money to bring your
vision to life.
You fear you won’t make and before you know it, you’ve ventured into survival mode.
‘Cause you’re now a solopreneur…
But, what if we could flip those preconceived notions?
Before you throw your hands up in the air … lean in a little … I’ve got an idea we can weave into your business.
If you stop fighting your fears and instead turn them into fuel … I bet you’ll grow that business of yours with ease.
And, no, this isn’t a trick!
No matter how long you’ve been at it, as an entrepreneur, you bounce back and forth from living the dream to feeling challenged by some oversight and even wondering if you should be doing this at all.
For years entrepreneurship has been frowned upon, but we all know business owners (like us) keep this world going round.
We play an essential role, and we must succeed in keeping our economy healthy. And those beautiful ideas of yours and how you’ll make your corner of the world a better place are more important than you know.
And for those of you who aren’t paralyzed by the thoughts of building your business to pursue your dreams … let’s not pretend that fear won’t ever be part of the journey as we look to balance our fear with success.
Whether you experience fear of failure or fear of success, fear does not have to be negative.
If you begin to look at fear through a different lens, you’ll see a little fear can go a long way.
Stay with me.
When you go LIVE, what do you have to lose? Nothing. There will always be a few naysayers or haters, but the most important thing is to focus on your audience, the people you want to serve, because … they are what fuel your business.
And now that we’ve begun reflecting upon all the mind-numbing fears that impact us regularly … let’s look to the next phase … how to manage our fear.
It’s never easy to address what we fear most.
Whether it’s a giant hairy spider, heights, a discovery call, or going live … in the end, there is always a way to work through your fear.
And just like that, you think of a creative way to catch and release the giant audacious spider, you climb the ladder to save a kitten on a rooftop and then step down with ease, you prepare a ‘script’ and kill it on the call, and you go live like a pro only to receive fantastic feedback.
If not, I’d love to hear from you, firstname.lastname@example.org, so together, we can make this happen.
