Investing In Yourself
I’m experiencing a lot of fear recently.
I am about to hire another sales rep. My first sales rep is doing a great job, but it’s still very uncomfortable spending money for an uncertain future.
That’s funny for me to say, because I’ve never had a problem making short term investments for long term gains. I think the difference here is that I have always been the one doing the sales, and it’s uncomfortable to think of someone doing it instead of me.
I feel like no one will be able to do it as well as I can. But that’s bullshit. Plenty of people can do it, and after I die, plenty of people will continue to do it when I’m gone.
Bryan and Tricia gave me encouragement today. They have supported me fully as I have embarked upon this adventure. It felt good to hear that they have my back and they are giving me the space I need to experiment, make mistakes, and be scared.
It made me feel very grateful.
I don’t know what I’m doing, but every day I make progress. I feel like I know a little more each day. If I keep going, it’s unreasonable to think that I won’t figure it out.
I have absolutely no doubts that I will succeed. The fear isn’t about the fear of failure.
The fear is wondering who I will be if I'm not doing sales for Stodzy.
Growth is uncomfortable, but I am fully committed to this journey.
