“I could never do what you do because I’m not outgoing/social/insert adjective of your choice”

“I could never do what you do because I’m not outgoing/social/insert adjective of your choice”
I’ve had some people say to me recently, “I could never do what you do because I’m not outgoing/social/insert adjective of your choice” and even though I disagree, I understand why they might think that…
And because I couldn’t help myself, last night I decided to go on a little expedition to dig up the questionnaire I filled out for my mentors almost 8 years ago as I prepared to start building my network marketing business…

Why is this important? Because I want people to know I really do understand their fear, their uncertainty, and their insecurity. In the core of my being, I get it.

But I also can’t imagine if I didn’t take action anyway. Because over time, scared action transformed to inspired action. Little by little, nervousness was replaced by confidence. Slowly intimidation was replaced with posture.

And now, without further ado, for your reading pleasure, welcome to the unedited mindset of Ciji Siddons circa 2011…
“Truth be told, this business scares me to death. I am not great at talking to people, I’m borderline socially awkward at times and I am not fantastic at small talk. That is half of what attracts me to it. Because I am petrified of it, I want to succeed at it.

I am so easily intimidated by basically anyone and everyone…

When my business is successful, then that means I have become confident enough in myself to make my business successful. My biggest barrier is that I’m not confident enough in myself and success in my business would essentially represent success in my personal confidence.”
Final thoughts: The fear, the doubt, the insecurity. I wasn’t special for experiencing it. And either are you. It’s all normal my friends. And we get to decide if we’re going to let it paralyze us.
