Doing something you’ve never done before can be scary.
Because you don’t want to experience the pain of failure.
Doing hard things that you don’t want to do, but know that you must do, brings up all sorts of fear-based thoughts…
- What will it mean if I don’t succeed?
- What will people think of me?
- What will I think of myself?
- How will I recover?
- How will I regain the wasted time?
But it’s only by doing those new things and doing those hard things that we give ourselves the opportunity to learn and grow…and a shot at success
So, how do you do those new things or those hard things and stick to it until you succeed?
You test and learn.
You’ll get some things right.
And other things may go horribly wrong.
And when, not if, that happens…
You find the courage to tweak or pivot and give it another go.
YOU PRACTISE TILL YOU GET IT!
