All month we’ve been talking about overcoming the fear of video. We talked about the very common initial fear of not being ready to go on video, and we also delved into the fear of not knowing what to say. Today, I’m talking about the number one fear I hear – the fear of being seen. Frankly, it’s a fear of being judged. It’s the fear of “What will this person think?”
To this fear, I ask “How important is it for you to make a difference in the world?” You need to dig into this and get clear on your inner purpose before you turn on the camera. The people who truly change the world are not perfect people. You do not need to be perfect to make a difference.
Who inspires you? Look at their life and work. They aren’t perfect, are they? They are comfortable in the skin they’re in. When you can commit to being yourself, being comfortable with who you are, you can overcome the fear of being seen.
In this video, I tell you how I handle the negative feedback I receive and how I coach my clients to respond to it. You will also learn which part of this fear you will actually have to continually work at as long as you are pursuing your purpose in life.
The way to overcome fear is in the doing, not the thinking. I encourage you to take a step forward. Try something new. Reach out to me with any questions you have. I’d love to help you overcome this fear and truly make a difference.
In the meantime, keep dreaming it, living it, and being it!
P.S. Did you join us for last week’s “Lights, Camera, IMPACT!” 5-day summit? I’d love to hear from you how it helped you take action and push through these fears. And if you really want to develop your skills, get your ticket today for the Video Mastery workshop in Manhattan Beach, October 24th & 25th.
