I’ve been asked to prepare an offering this month. The offering needed to be relevant to my work and could take any format: video, audio, writing, and so on. About 10 days ago, I wrote the text which I intended to use in a video. It was about a memoir I’ve been working on in the last few years. The material came in one big gush which usually is a good sign. To me, it means it comes from deep within and not manufactured by my head.
I didn’t video it straightaway because… my hair wasn’t quite right. So I decided to do it the next day. Except, as time passed, doubts crept in: what if it wasn’t good enough? how was I planning to use this video in the future? Me on a video? Cringe. Maybe I should do an audio version first. Grow incrementally. No-no-no, don’t play small, go for a video! 10 days on and nothing was happening.
Until today. I decided if I want to grow, I need to take risks. What is the worst thing that could happen? Without a proper hairdo, new outfit, make-up or even the written text, I made my first video about the book.
And I loved it!
When life presents you with an opportunity to grow… run with it! If you are waiting for the perfect moment, the right outfit, the nice hair-do, etc. etc. etc., your growth will be slow. Here is the best part… Despite fears and doubts, you may surprise yourself and actually love the process.
