I'm still an introvert. My biggest fear is still disappointing people. I still feel not good enough for the next level in my life, still have nervous ticks that show up every day, and still don't fit in to most social groups. But I've learned to tell myself that, "I do difficult things." I've learned to not allow those fears and struggles to prevent me from taking action. And I've learned to adapt my learning style so I learn through visuals instead of telling myself I'm stupid because I can't learn other ways.
(Having a supportive spouse helps a ton too!)
And I've got other insecurities like being divorced, having a son in another part of the country, and worrying that I'm not a good enough father. I still get nervous before I get on stage, still doubt myself before I get on camera, and still get insecure before I do an interview. I struggle with these things but I don't let them stop me. Whether it was people I could talk with like my parents, Mrs. Farr, or Steve... or people I could model like Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates, I learned that even if everybody around you is negative, hopeless, and toxic, if you can get just one person who makes you believe that something greater is possible, it can make all the difference in the world.
I've had the tremendous honor of helping millions of people around the world and if any of this resonates with you, I'd love the opportunity to humbly be one of your guides. Like I said at the start, it's not your fault where you're at right now. You did the best at the time with what you had. But where you are now doesn't have to be where you end up if you get the right people and models to follow. I #Believe in you.
