The other day someone asked me, “Where do you come up with all your ideas about fear?”
I told them, “I’m afraid, and then I write that down.”
That’s it. That’s where my ideas about fear come from. And one that I’ve talked about before is the thing fear, fears.
Do you know what fear, fears?
Fear always tries to isolate you and put you on an island. Fear always wants you to think you’re the only one that feels a certain way or has a certain doubt. Fear is terrified that you’ll get plugged into a community of other people and learn the truth.
The truth that everyone gets afraid sometimes, the truth that chasing a dream isn’t easy or instant, the truth that fear isn’t all that big.
The challenge is that it’s not always easy to get plugged into a community. You can’t search “Quitters” on craigslist and then go grab coffee with whoever you find. That’d be weird.
So one of the things I’m trying to do is help build some community. The Quitter Conference is one way we do that. And today I get to announce an additional one.
My friends from Proof Branding are holding a Fall Retreat. It’s designed to help you gain clarity on your dream, even if you’re not 100% ready to make the leap from day job to dream job. It’s full of tactical, practical steps on shaping and succeeding at developing the brand of your dream. I personally did a one-day version of this retreat and it was incredibly helpful. It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done to figure out my dream. They seriously took years of jumbled “what if” ideas and helped me get down to the heart of what matters most.
There’s only 10 spots for the retreat because sometimes the size of the community matters a whole lot. So if you’re interested, sign up today.
