How to not stop before you start!
When we have SO many mindset gremlins running wild and having a party in our heads, how do you make sure you don’t stop before you start?
Last week the tech gremlins were wreaking HAVOC with me, but it ended up being a really good thing because I got the opportunity to show lots of people that...tech happens! Things can and will go wrong, all the time in your business. But the thing that stops people is the fear of it happening, without realising they’re the ones in control of how they react to it.
Because the ‘thing’ happening isn’t actually the scary part.
The scary part is what we unconsciously make that mean about us.
That’s the scary part of MOST things in business...and in life!
If this happens, then that happens. How many times have you created a story around something like that?
When you don’t have awareness, you can’t challenge it. So it stays. As a fact. Running the show!
So here’s a few things that happened to me last week. I must add I'm a complete technophobe. That’s not strictly fair, once I've learned I'm pretty good but the learning piece for me is excruciating and I stay consciously incompetant for far longer than I'd like. But I'm aware of it. So now I outsource pretty much all of my tech. Which makes me very happy indeed!
So...first up, my email system went haywire and wouldn’t let me send my Wednesday email to my list. Every week they get my nuggets of ‘wisdom’ into their inboxes and last week...computer literally said NO!
I was trying to create it and it was doing this weird thing where you couldn’t type into the body of the email. You also couldn’t type into the help chat box. A nightmare for a technophobe!
I just want you to take a second to think about how you’d feel and what you’d do in that moment.
We’re hammered with ‘consistency is key’ a lot in the online business world, and to an extent it’s true. But if you miss an email, or you miss an episode, there won’t be a revolt!
People might wonder where it is, some people might not notice. But it DOESN’T mean that everyone is going to unfollow you and you’ll be dead to them.
It doesn’t mean anything about you.
It doesn’t mean this is the end of your business.
It doesn’t really mean anything other than you didn’t get an email, or an episode, or an instagram post out.
I still don’t know if it will let me send an email this week...but really, what can I do?
I can let people know and bring them along the frustrating journey with me.
I can try to see the funny side and let them laugh with me at the ridiculousness of a technophobe not being able to do the most basic of things and send an email.
