This week one of my clients came to my office to work on her email newsletter. She had gone through a rough 6 months and hadn’t sent anything out to her list in a long time. She was not feeling very confident about writing her newsletter, formatting it, nor sending it out, but she wanted to let people know about a workshop that she was going to be doing. When she finished it, which was not as bad as she had feared, she was even hesitant to push send.
Later that evening she forwarded an email she got from someone on her list. It went like this:
It is foolish to compare our insides to someone else’s outsides.
We all have those feelings, but they are only feelings. When we go ahead and put our ass on the line to do the things we know we should do, even though we are afraid, each time we get a little more confident about doing a little more. Great things happen in this way.
