A few years ago I did my first live IG chat. I got a few compliments from people who said they liked my live chat on Instagram and that it made them think of their own creativity.
But what they didn’t know what that I was fumbling, using it as confidence booster, before actually doing that thing I really wanted to do.
Despite the compliments, I didn’t do it for the feedback. I did it to get over my own self-doubt. At the time I was planning to launch my own podcast. But then I got stuck in the research loop, listening to countless other podcasts and consuming endless content. But not actually starting.
Everything and everyone inspired me. I had lists and pages of ideas and possible people to interview but somehow I was afraid to launch. I was afraid that my measly offering of content, imperfectly produced and haphazardly packaged would not make a mark in the virtual world. I was afraid that not having the ‘right’ branding would render me a fraud. Who would bother listening to my uhms and ahs between questions. All of my doubts gave me an obvious case of ‘paralysis through analysis.’ I made countless excuses on why I couldn’t launch my podcast just yet, despite having acquired all the equipment that I needed.
So what changed? Join me for some key learnings on how to eliminate mental roadblocks that prevent you from getting started.
