Just getting started is sometimes the hardest thing you will ever have to do, in fact, I will be so bold as to say it is THE hardest thing everyone faces. And I am here to tell you, just get over the biggest hurdle which is the first of anything you do. The 1st is always the hardest thing to do; first investment property, first wholesale deal, first mortgage money given out, first estate sale, first foreclosure, first flip, first…I think you get the idea.
So, the faster you can get there, the faster you can start to really grow to your best.
Unfortunately, too many get stopped in their tracks, whether it is from the gravity of the situation, or baggage that you are carrying into the situation, regardless of what the excuse, getting to the first of anything is always better than staying at 0 of anything.
For years, I came up with every excuse in the book not to public speak, and I had enough people around me to support me that it was okay. But it wasn’t okay. Until I did my first public talk (which was a complete and utter disaster BTW), I would never get over the fear I had of public speaking.
But now, years later, fear is gone, butterflies are still there, but I am happy to engage with the people in the audience now, and it is only because I jumped over the hurdle of the first talk. And guess what, 1 was ALWAYS greater than 0!
It’s time to Elevate!
