Ever find yourself wanting to do something you just know will make a positive impact in your life, but are so afraid to do it? You may even know the reasons stopping you are just ridiculous, but you let them stop you anyway?
Well, I have been going through the same thing for months. I’ve been afraid to start recording videos as another tool to share my passion for helping people find opportunities that will make them successful.
My family, friends and colleagues have been encouraging me to start creating videos. My 17 year old thinks it’s hysterical that I am afraid to do it. I’ve had a YouTube channel forever and haven’t uploaded a single video. It’s not the making of the video that I let bother me. It’s worrying about how it will look. Will the lighting be ok? How will I look? Will anybody care? I guess the fear is really about putting myself out there to scrutiny.
I share my story to say each of us must find a way to overcome our fears so that we can grow. Fear is nothing more than a false belief. In another post we can talk about what fear really is and how to overcome it. The point I wanted to make today is that even the silliest little thing can stop us from achieving our goals, if we let it. I decided I was not going to allow fear to get in my way. So, I am uploading my first video to YouTube and sharing it today.
In the video I share how I felt about making the video. If you’re curious, here’s the link: http://youtu.be/hGAxYy5LlaU
