Can I tell you a secret? Even though I know that entrepreneurs and coaches are eating up livestream video with a spoon it’s so yummy, I don’t like it. To be accurate, I don’t like seeing ME on video. Perhaps you know the feeling?
I know how important video is becoming to connecting with potential clients and influencers. 70% of all content will be video in just a few years. It’s time to get the kinks out now, right?
The first pillar is self awareness. Can you identify your emotions when dealing with your business.
Fear of being visible, something many entrepreneurs share, was delaying my mission to awaken entrepreneurs and lawyers to what happens when they fail to create a business that runs without them. Can’t have that, right?
What can you do when you become aware of a fear?
You have three choices: meet it head on, go sideways, do nothing.
Yes, doing nothing is a choice. Researching endlessly is a form of doing nothing. Not to generalize, but women say they feel most powerful when they are prepared. That can lead to a lot of endlessly study and preparation. Just saying. Ask yourself what else is going on if you find yourself in analysis paralysis.
Go sideways! Courage is transferable. Once you experience success in one part of your life you can transfer that to another part. Recently, I took adult swim lessons with an amazing school called Miracle Swimming to gain confidence in the water after a lifetime of being terrified.
I highly recommend this sideways experience. I shared my swim journey here. More learning pops up daily so I’m sure there will be more to talk about.
Meet it Head On. Powering through only works short term. There’s only so much grace. After that there is illness and injuries that come from pushing and rushing.
This is my typical MO. I don’t think I’m alone. And, I’m not judging because whatever we did got us this far. Taking the swim journey has allow me to go a little farther in growing my business (and myself) without struggling.
Because of swimming I got the courage to do this Facebook Livestream.
