Dear Introverted Entrepreneur:
I get that you want to make a difference.
I get that if not for fear, you would be unstoppable.
Fear of failure.
Fear of what others think.
Fear that you might not make it, that you might make a mistake, that you might lose money.
Fear that you’re on the wrong path.
Fear of letting down those who have high hopes for you.
Fear of uncertainty and not knowing the right answers.
Fear that you’re not smart enough, talented enough, tech savvy enough, entrepreneurial enough.
All these are valid fears, and all of us have had them.
So I want to share a tip that has helped me and helped my clients to not let fear stop them following their hearts.
Care enough that your fear will seem insignificant in comparison.
Care enough to push through the discomfort and inconvenience.
Care enough to keep going when it’s hard and you don’t know if you can make it.
Care enough not to take no from someone who needs your help but lacks belief in themselves and their dreams.
Care enough to speak up, even though you’re an introvert who hates the spotlight.
Care enough to do something, instead of waiting for someone else who is more competent or experienced to come along.
Care enough to fight back, to find solutions, to get creative, when detours turn into dead ends.
Care enough to make a difference – in your own quiet way.
