I just started my very first email campaign to engage those looking to make a change in their career - whether it is to figure out what one wants to do, venture into entrepreneurship, change companies or level up within an existing situation.
This is a first for me and it is part of many strategies required to grow my business. It took months to put it all together and then days to build up the courage to hit "SEND"... to over 450 people.
Within minutes, I realized that I had made some errors. I was so caught up having everything perfect, that I overlooked very basic things.
It's possible that the old me would have had some anxiety over this faux-pas. The new me, the one who coaches people through fear, shrugged her shoulders and thought of a quote by Amelia Earhart:
"The most difficult thing is the decision to act; the rest is tenacity"
I acted. Things have been put into motion and there is no stopping the momentum. And I am determined to succeed and help people. My mistakes are not going to make or break me, and I will be more diligent and thorough next time. But the take-away from this is that I acted. And although I have no control over the outcome of this email campaign, the effort is important to me.
For those of you who are contemplating your next personal or professional move, what action do you need to take? What will happen if you put things into motion and get your own momentum going? What's the worst thing that could happen?
The bigger question:
What is the cost to NOT take action?
If the fear of making a mistake is getting in your way of taking action, let's talk it through. Mistakes are inevitable and help us make improvements; they are a necessary part of your journey to succeed.
There is an opportunity waiting to be seized. My reinvention to change careers will result in new and unlimited opportunities, not just for me but for my clients. Your opportunity to achieve something greater than your current greatness is just waiting for you on the other side of whatever action you decide to take.
I have two goals:
To help people find the courage and confidence to put into motion that which is necessary to realize their goals, and
To turn people into believers of my motto: The Greatest Opportunities Are On The Other Side Of Change. Because they are.
