REAL TALK: There once was a time where I didn’t think I had what it took to create a name for myself with a sustainable business.
Unlike some others, I didn’t have instant success where I went from zero to an empire in a blink.
In fact, there were so many times where I almost gave up because nothing was working to grow my little sprouting “business”.
Truth be told, I was letting the fear of complete failure get in the way of actually reaching my goals. It was an impassable hurdle for me, and it felt so real ya’ll!
𝐁𝐮𝐭 𝐢𝐭 𝐰𝐚𝐬𝐧’𝐭 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐥. It was a product of my own insecurity and thoughts in my head.
“What if my photos aren’t good enough?”
“I have no formal training in marketing!”
“There are so many other talented photogs that are way better than me”
These thoughts ran through my head and discouraged me from even trying to take chances and make a name for myself.
One day I told Matt about these feelings and his reaction hit me like a ton of bricks.
“I don’t think any of those things apply to you.”
He had no idea at the time, but that response made me realize that everything I thought and felt was of my own creation. The only hurdle in my way was MYSELF!
Once I broke down the wall that I constructed, my whole business changed. I started taking chances, I started investing in myself, and I turned that fear of failure preventing me from soaring, into a failure and giving up is not even an option!
What’s stopping you from getting to where you want to be? A mindset change may be all you need try it!
