So Do You Fear Ridicule Or Are You Bullet Proof?
Do you fear ridicule or would you say, “What the heck?” I hope you realise that to build an online business now requires you to stand up and be counted. You know put yourself in the firing line, with the chance of failure.
If this makes you feel any better I have a short story to tell you.
In 1974 I was a young 19 year old uniformed police officer in East London, in the UK. One day I was walking down the main road and something took my eye over the other side of the road. Now I promise you that it was not a woman, on this occasion at least.
Now what happened next was totally embarrassing for me and painful. I walked straight into a concrete streetlamp. It was so hard I thought I had broken my left cheekbone but was I worried about that. No, of course not I was worried whether anyone saw me or not.
The moral of the story is this, watch where you are going. No, it is if you want to earn the big bucks, pounds or euros, you will have to stick your neck out and be willing to take a risk. The biggest fear we all have is public speaking, which is another form of rejection. So just go ahead and feel out of your depth.
People will be cheering from the sidelines and you who are the only one who will worry about it. No-one else will, I can assure you. Why is that? Because most people have been where you are and will understand.
So if you find yourself putting something off because you are afraid that you might fail or be embarrassed, then just remember me and the street lamp.

Do you fear ridicule? Or are you a person who will step up and get stuck in, regardless of the result?
