A few days ago I announced that my new book, Love Yourself Slimmer was released and ready for the world to read. And I was excited! I still am, but a funny thing happened just this morning that I want to talk about for a minute because maybe you can relate.
You see, I found this morning a seed of doubt creeping into my awareness around whether or not my new book is "good enough", whether people will like it or even if it will help them. I started worrying about spelling errors that I might have missed and whether or not the final product will be formatted correctly.
Just a bunch of doubt.
Ever feel this way after you do something kinda big and different? Well I definitely was (and if I am being completely honest, still am just a bit). And you know what? It is okay. I would venture to say that this feeling is kinda normal even. Anytime you step outside of your comfort zone, there will be doubt. It didn't stop me from writing the book, so that is a good thing.
A lot of times, doubt and fear can be so strong that we don't even get out of the gate with our ideas. I am here to tell you that doubt and fear will always be around when you are up-leveling and making your dreams a reality. And that is perfect. Be careful to not allow those doubts and fears to paralyze you though. That is just your ego wanting guarantees that everything will be perfect.
But I challenge you to just enjoy the journey. You will not be the same person at the end of your quest. Enjoy the experience. Learn. Grow. Laugh. And just go for it. You will never know if you never try how wonderful your life can actually be.
Anyway, I wanted to share that we all go through it, and you are never alone. I am here for you if you need to talk. I know you can do anything you choose to do. I support you in your vision of awesomeness.
Until we meet again.
