Don’t think I honor all my agreements. I don’t but I’m working towards it and the goal is always to accomplish what I set out too. I think our shadows lie in the stuff we say were going to do but don’t do it. The action of not following through erodes our self-confidence and trust in our own word.
How can anyone else trust us, if we don’t even trust ourself?
In business, being your word separates pros from amateurs.
“The amateur believes he must first overcome his fear; then he can do his work. The professional knows that fear can never be overcome. He knows that there is no such thing as a fearless warrior or dread free artist.” — Steven Pressfield.
When I started my podcast journey I felt this fear. I kept breaking word because it wasn’t perfect yet. I wasn’t ready. You’re never ready for that thing and when you are there’s another thing.
The more we break our word, the more we live in the shadows of our fears. When we courageously act when we’re afraid, we learn to walk ahead of our shadow.
