When I’m Scared, I Quit!

Facetiming with my friend last night about life, love, biz and we got to talking about our dreams and what the heck holds us back from living full out.

I kinda knew I had this pattern of starting something, seeing it about 90% through and then stopping or dropping the ball for whatever random reason I come up with (that seems perfectly valid at the time).

Oy…it always circles back to this little things called fear. And I know ALL about the fear game.

Fear of standing out
Fear of being shamed
Fear of being judged
Fear of being noticed
Fear of being…not noticed

Ad infinitum…

Jeeeeeezzzzzuuuussssss. So much fear. UGH.

While much of what I teach here are strategies like funnels, launching, ads..things to help you grow a biz, I’m still a real person with real struggles, just like you.

I would love to say I’m a fearless entrepreneurial goddess warrior ALL the time but I’m not.

Putting something new out into the world is always a risk. And it’s freakin’ scary.

Even with the right “strategy” your idea, offering, project can fall flat.

And the only way to know if something is truly going to fly is to put it out there. 

Fears #1 job is to protect… Protection from things like failure or rejection. Which also means it keeps us from our desires and our success.

I’m launching a new program next week and was going to NOT offer it because of fear. (Everyone is launching in October so that seemed like a good reason excuse to my little lizard brain).

Luckily, I have people in my life who know me and won’t let me back down or come up with an excuse as to why I shouldn’t just frickin’ do it.

The more you put yourself out there, the bigger difference you make.

The more you launch, the more money you make.

My fear is so clever it usually shows up disguised as confusion, indecision, doubt, resistance, starting a cleaning project in the middle of my work day, being tired as soon as I sit down at my laptop and having to take a nap, getting sick (3 times this month), and lots of other super sneaky ways.

It won’t go away so I feel the fear and do it anyway…at least some of the time.

The workshop will be on Tuesday at 2:00pm and this stuff is so good I could charge for it, so come (it’s free, btw)!

Make sure you are on my list to get notified of the free LIVE list-building workshop. 

List building is something you must make time for if you’re serious about growing your business in 2018 (and spiking holiday sales these last few months of 2017!).

This isn’t one of those trainings you leave with a vague overview – this is STEP BY STEP material you can actually implement and get results.

I’ll see you on Tuesday, October 24 at 11:00am PST

Whether you decide to join my program or not, I want to help you get an understanding of what’s working now for growing an audience, launching a mini offer and making sales just by sending a handful of emails!

Last weeks video can be found here. I don’t know how much longer these trainings will be up so go check them out.

​​​​​​​And if you show up live on Tuesday, you will receive special pricing and bonuses so be there! We’ll start the party at 11:00am PST and bring your questions so I can answer them live in the workshop.

How does your fear show up?

 

Would love to hear from you in the comments below…
