Are you daunted by publicity, by doing something like a podcast, live interview or a live video?
When you see other people getting publicity, are you telling yourself, “I could never do that!” or “I’m so scared; what if I do something wrong?” or “I’d have no idea what to say!,” so you’re stopping yourself from ever starting with getting visible on a small or larger scale?
What if you made this small shift in your mind today...instead of telling yourself,
😱“I could never do that!”
😱“I’m so scared; what if I do something wrong and look stupid?”
😱“I’d have no idea what to say!”
What if you changed those thoughts to:
😌“I could do that, I just need some practice.”
😌“I know from experience that things get easier every time I do them, so I bet that would be true for publicity, too.”
😌“I have a lot of knowledge to share already, and I can prepare what I want to say ahead of time so I go in feeling confident.”
See the difference? How does it feel when you read the first set compared to the second set?
What do the second set of thoughts and beliefs open you up to? They open you up to possibility rather than to “can’t.” They open you up to “how” rather than to “no way, end of sentence, end of story, done-zo.”
