What scares you?
Today is 🎃Halloween🎃, so I thought it’s the perfect time to ask this question.
𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘀𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲𝘀 𝘆𝗼𝘂?
And now for the 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 scary question …
𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗼𝗻’𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗶𝘁?
Job? Partner? Money?
Or worse – memories you never made?
I recently confronted one of my biggest, baddest, boogie-oogiest fears – being on video.
It was time.
For 13 years, this fear held me back from a LOT of opportunities.😖
But, because I’d held onto it for so long, it was a big part of my personal narrative.
I knew ‘d need help to get over that.
I’d need a system.
So I designed a system to make sure I was successful.😀
✔️ I set a goal (be a guest on The Hotness Unleasher Show on LinkedIn)
Setting 👆this goal👆 also doubled as my reward
✔️ I had 3 simple rules (messy over perfect; preserve the record; the challenge ends when hesitation does)
✔️ I established a routine (one live video every day)
The 👆routine👆 IS the system. It’s habit forming, mindset conditioning, and belief reset all in one. It’s where progress happens, so it also doubled as my accountability structure.
Prepping the environment was my cue to get mentally prepared to face my fear.😬
- Inside – tripod, ring light, mitigate distractions
- Outside – phone, leash, Newman, treats
Evan anticipating any one of those happening – the fear would bubble up.😬
Until it didn’t.😀😀
◉ Cue – Prep the environment.
◉ Craving – ‘Let’s get this over with’ as I went live turned into ‘What shall I talk about?’ planning.
◉ Response – Going live.
◉ Reward – Obstacle/Fear overcome.
“Behind every system of actions are a system of belief.” – James Clear
‘I don’t’ literally became ‘I do’.
13 years of ‘I can’t’ is now ‘I can’.
And you can, too.
I create transformational change by designing systems focused on career strategy, leadership development and personal evolution.
And I’m holding space if you’d like to talk.
