I recently posted a blog about failure. I wrote about how failure can be your friend if you learn how to manage your thoughts about it.
That same day I took a walk with my dog, Kona, and decided to turn on the camera. I began to face one of my biggest fears, the selfie video. Sounds funny, right? It’s no joke. Those things scare me.
Even though I’m an extrovert, a blogger, and a podcaster, I’ve been afraid of filming myself for a long time. It’s been a failure for me. Still, I’m moving forward and facing my fear.
“When you do what you fear most, then you can do anything.” Stephen Richards
As someone who is comfortable speaking in front of large groups of people, I thought this fear was strange.
Turns out it makes sense. Many extroverts like myself feed off the energy of a crowd. I never thought about that before. The selfie video does not have a crowd. It’s just me and the camera.
To move forward, I needed to change my thoughts about it. Something I suggest to my coaching clients. Ask for what you want and believe you already have it. The Law of Attraction.
I needed to attract the result I wanted.
I visualized myself without fear and turned on the camera. It turned out to be fun, and I’m glad Kona was there with me.
In my hast, I held the camera in portrait mode. This is funny because I love watching videos in landscape mode. It’s okay though because facing my fear is way more important than the angle of the camera.
I followed through and posted it on Facebook. Now it’s real and out there. Check out my short video below.
What fear have you faced and overcome? Please leave me a comment and let me know.
