Does This Scare You?
This Week's Simple Tip: As we all know, the unknown can be a scary place! And unless we live under rocks, there are going to be unknowns regularly in life. I am in a scary place myself right now. While writing these weekly newsletters no longer scares me unless we have technical glitches, my pursuit for 2020 is scary. Because the bulk of my subscribers and books sold have originated from speaking engagements, I will be pursuing more public speaking opportunities in order to expand my reach to teach more people coping strategies for life's challenges. The actual act of speaking is not what scares me, it's figuring out the way to make it happen that does. By the way, if you belong to a group or know of one who brings in speakers, please let me know! So this week's tip is near and dear to my own heart right now: having faith and trust that you can figure out whatever comes along. If you think about, the odds are really good. All of us writing or reading this newsletter have survived 100% of everything in our lives so far, some of which are significant challenges. While there may be some associated nervousness, a little stress is a necessary element for growth. So the chances are very good that whatever comes along, we are going to deal with it just fine, and probably even end up better off than we were before. Trust that you can figure out the next thing that you are not sure about. Somehow, someway you will, just like I will with this public speaking thing!
