Do it Scared
Do it scared. You know that thing you've wanted to do, but the bigness of it FREAKS YOU OUT. Do THAT!
Oh, and in the process of doing it when you want to scream and throw in the towel....just know that's [...]
part of the process.
When the ways you're putting yourself out there and making yourself vulnerable wake you up at 3am, just know it might all be worth it if it helps just one person.
The thing is though...that one person is already taken care of...it's YOU. Standing up to the voices inside your head that tell you you're not enough and that you're not worthy of happiness and big things is a big, FAT, yet believable liar. When you stand up to this you're serving YOU.
So, when you dare greatly you have already succeeded, even if you fall flat on your face.
You deserve happy relationships. You deserve big things.
When creating LOVE, SEX, KIDS Live -the course for more awesome relationships- I felt the fear and did it anyway. For years I felt the fear so strongly that the course remained on post-it notes of many colors on the hallway near my office.
I can't REALLY do this....WHAT IF THEY ALL HATE IT!!??
That was the EASY thought to think. But....but what if this format DOES work? What if I could serve LOTS more people? And those people's kids....surely they'd feel the impact, too?
I just couldn't let the chance to help families in a big way go. The idea wouldn't leave me alone. Those thoughts beat like a drum in my mind....at first quietly and then so loud I couldn't stand it.
Honestly, I set dates for the first course before actually having an OUTLINE!! That drumming got REALLY LOUD. That was the only thing I could think to do to quiet it. I knew I needed a deadline to push myself to do something this big. And let me tell you, when I saw my first participant sign up I had equal parts exilaration and terror (sometimes those are kinda hard to tell apart, aren't they?).
But this course is ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IN THE WORLD!! And it turns out, other people like it, too. DOUBLE BONUS. Did you see that testimonial at the top of this page?
AND NOW!! I've opened up 2 sections of the course in O'Fallon at Rendezvous Cafe and Wine Bar. The first class starts November 3rd. Scroll down for more info. EARLY BIRD PRICING ENDS TOMORROW! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Click the pic below to sign up! DRAG FRIENDS WITH YOU! Trust me, you're in for big change and a few laughs.
Feel the fear, and do it anyway.
