Fear of being seen

As I surface from the new mother fog, and really being offline for the past 12 months. For the first time I’ve felt a massive amounts of resistance about putting myself out there.

In the past, I’ve had clients do this. “I am too scared to post a photo of myself on social media” They say. “I don’t need to blog, write emails, connect with my audience, I’ll just pop my website up and hope for the sales to start rolling in”.

I always thought it odd that they didn’t want to step up and be the shining light of their business. But now I get it. I totally get.

The anxiety around hitting send on that email campaign.

The constant battle of your ego.

I am not good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, talented enough, I don’t want to intrude.

Who am I to show up in their inbox or Facebook newsfeed? Who am I to voice my opinion or offer my advice?

The negative self talk comes thick and fast.

I get it. It’s easier to dull your light. To sit in the comfort of your introverted cave. A¬†comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.

You have to remember none of this is about you.

You’re here to serve your audience and that has nothing to do with you, your ego or your agenda.

Once you get your head around that, it will be easier. I promise.

Let go of the fear. Show up for them.
