I have a confession to make…
It took me 25+ years before I finally had the nerve to start my own business!!
25+ years… think of all the people that I could have helped in that time!
Looking back, I have wondered what took me so long?
I could blame it on a lack of time… or money… or know-how… or a host of other reasons.
But here is what it really came down to.
Fear of failure…
And here’s the really ugly truth… Fear of Failure is holding you back too!
Sure, I know you have all the same complaints I did.
You do realize those are just excuses, right?
THOSE EXCUSES AREN’T THE REAL PROBLEM… FEAR is the REAL PROBLEM.
More specifically – FEAR of FAILURE.
But here’s the dirty little secret about Fear of Failure…
Failure is the only path to Success! You heard me right, and it’s worth repeating…
Failure is the path to Success! Need proof?!!?
How many of you who learned to ride a bicycle were a success the first time?… Yea… me neither!
Learning to drive??… Yea, I made driving mistakes too.
Learning to walk??… Learning to do long division??… Learning to do ANYTHING??… Yea… me neither!
Look at any successful person you admire and they will tell you that they are only successful 51% of the time!!!! That’s it… and if you’re in sales, that number is closer to 20%… and if you’re in advertising, plan on only winning 1-2%!!!!
That’s it! So, let go of that fear… all of you out there still reading… I’m talking directly to you… Let go, and know that failures are going to happen…
Try!… Experiment!…Try again… It’s ALL part of the process…
AND… if you want a Business coach who can help you shortcut the process so you don’t have to make all the same mistakes I made… all you have to do is Click HERE to schedule some time with me.
