How often do you disqualify yourself through being overly critical of yourself?
How often do you seem to be inspired with an idea, only to then start chipping
⭕ I’m not experienced enough
⭕I’m not qualified enough
⭕I don’t have enough money
⭕Who is going to listen to what I have to say?
But the truth is, if you wait to have everything in place before you start, you will never start!
You simply have to use what you know or what you simply have within your means at the time and start. With a view to add and build as you progress and move forward.
Your fuel to anything is your inward motivation, your ‘Why‘. If you throw cold water on it internally, you will never get going. So how do you fan the flames?
For one you must change the script and reframe that inner critic. For every reason that comes to take you away from your plan find the reason to move you towards your plan.
If Steve Jobs had listen to the leading companies in 1998 he would never of changed the world of music, communications, social media and the use of the internet. The iMac and iPod and iPhone were revolutionary in every way and his competitors hand to up their game because of his ideas.
This 2007 talk demonstrates some of Apples thought processes st the time.
Sometimes it’s best to just do it. Don’t tell anyone just action your plan and ‘crack on!’
The reaction of people can also be a sure way to cause you to doubt and second guess yourself. I have certainly experienced this in the past and regretted it. Because I found that I had inadvertently opened up myself to the negative chat or lukewarm responses of others.
Have you ever tried to get past people’s responses that play like a tape in your mind? It’s not easy. So try to save yourself any pain.
