One of my philosophies in life is to have no regrets. I consider all opportunities that come my way, regardless of how difficult they may be to implement at that point in time. I would rather try and fail, knowing it doesn’t work or is not for me, than be forever wondering!
So, what are you waiting for? Take that chance.
Yes, that one, the one you keep saying in your head. Perhaps you’ve identified that perfect client you would love to get. Go make contact. Call them, mail them or whatever it may be. Just go and do it!
Think about this scenario, you’re chatting to someone and they offer you the perfect opportunity. But it’s not the perfect time for you. Argh! I will say this once only. There never is a perfect time. Never. Period. Stuff happens. Get over it. Grab that opportunity and run with it!
You’re not ready to launch. You just need to do a few more things.
You’re waiting for all those ducks to be in a row, right? And then you’ll be ready. How’s that working out for you? Been lining those ducks up for years haven’t you? Stop lining up, it will work out one way or another. Get your stuff out there; get it into the hands of your customers and then tweak as you get feedback. Test, test, test.
You have a business idol; someone you’d really love to speak to. Email them and ASK for the opportunity to meet. Just ASK. So much happens in this world by people simply ASKing for what they want. Take that chance, put yourself out there and just ASK.
The least they can say is no, and then you move on.
Maybe its unchartered territory for you; your first teleseminar, webinar, presentation or workshop. Scary stuff huh! Everything new is, but once tried, it might still be a little scary, but you’ve faced the fear; you’ve done it! Take that chance. And yes there’s loads that can go wrong, but there is so much more that can go right!
Sometimes the only thing that’s stopping you from taking a chance is believing in yourself. Find those that believe in you and listen to what they say very carefully. Listen. I believe in you. I’m supporting you. Go forth and conquer.
