Do you dream of playing a bigger game in your business and life, but sometimes fear gets in the way? If so, I totally get it.
Several years ago, I remember desperately wishing I wasn’t so fearful and sensitive.
I was the kind of person who would:
- Turn down publicity and speaking opportunities left and right, because I was afraid of not being perfect and losing control
- Hide in the bathroom at industry events, because I was terrible at small talk and struggled to connect with people
- Look at other people creating inspirational content, moving crowds, and helping lots of people…and think that I didn’t have the right personality to be a front-facing leader
To be totally honest, I still have internal struggles around “being seen.” I still struggle with shyness and introversion.
But here’s the thing: I made the decision to move forward and play big, even in the face of fear.
