Monday Motivation: Fear and Trying Something New. Vlogging Announcment
So, here we are again, another Monday Motivation. I am so excited for this one. Sometimes, we have to jump into something even when we feel like we are gonna drown in the process. So, I am excited to announce, I’m getting back into vlogging.
For those of you who don’t know, I have a YouTube channel promoting this site. I have some vlogs and stuff on it, but I haven’t done a ton with it. Doing videos makes a lot more sense because writing takes a lot of concentration, and sometimes I don’t have that long to get my message out. So, I’m going to give you some tips on overcoming the fear of starting something new.
1. Scary can also mean motivation.
So, my first tip is to use the fear to motivate you. You can choose to be paralyzed by fear, or you can let the energy of the fear turn into excitement to fuel your new venture. Think of it as the glass half full or half empty. If the glass is half empty, that is fear. You could also look at it as the glass is half full, full of excitement and new opportunities, the choice is yours.
2. Failing is how you Succeed.
So, if there were no failures, there would be no successes. Think of this as your ticket to try something new. Things won’t always work, but you’ll never know until you try. If it works YAY!!! If not, well there is always something else you can try to take its place.
3. Collect Failures and Fail Forward.
So this is a 2 part tip. For those who have ever been in a network marketing company or direct sales company, we are told to “Go for no”. This means that we challenge ourselves to get “nos”. If you look at it as collecting things that haven’t worked, you will find that there are things that do work. Now, please don’t confuse this with negative thinking, just be ok with things not working, and excited about the things that do. As far as failing forward, always find a lesson to come away from your failures with, and then learn from it.
So, now that I have given you some tips on fear and trying something new, what new thing are you going to tackle this week??? Tell me all about it in the comments.
