I signed up to do a course that will help me turn my ideas (I have millions of them) into products that help you heal and grow, and help me keep writing without having to go back to corporate world.
I have searched for a way to start an online business for years and finally this course seemed the right fit. I would give you an affiliate link but (a) the course is full and (b) I’ve only done one module so I can’t give you a complete review just yet.
But that’s not the point of this post. The point is that I’m fucking terrified.
I’m not terrified that I don’t understand the material, or that the program doesn’t work, I’m terrified that I’m not good enough and I don’t have anything worthwhile to offer the world. I’ve even thought about taking advantage of the money back guarantee and quitting.
But a few things occur to me.
- I’ll never know if I never try
- Fear means I’m out of my comfort zone which is where all growth occurs
- Being frightened because I don’t know what I’m doing is OK. Learning something new always means starting at the beginning
- If I fuck up then what is the worst thing that can happen? I’ll be embarrassed maybe, I’ll have squandered my money maybe but neither of those things will be the end of the world.
So I’m going to launch a free information product in the near future. I don’t know what about, I don’t know what format, and I don’t know who will want it. But I’m committed to doing it no matter what (did I mention that I’m scared?).
So this is my greatest fear … that I will stroke the face of suffering and make something beautiful and worthwhile from my pain and no-one will need it or want it. This terror keeps me awake at night.
Help me out. Tell me what is your greatest fear. What keeps YOU awake at night. (It can be anything — even completely off my usual topics). Telling me this will be your gift to me. If I know your struggles, I might be able to create something that will ease your pain. Leave me a comment and let me know:
→ What is the one specific thing that you struggle with the most?
→ What information product have you bought recently that has made a difference in your life?
