Well, today I went off the high dive for sure!
I just launched my new affiliate program called The Organized Artist Big Fan Club (learn more here: http://sambennett.wpengine.com/about-us/big-fan-club/) and I gotta say – I feel excited but mostly I feel very, very exposed.
It’s unnerving to put your self and your work front and center.
We worry what other people will think. (As though we had any control over what other people think.)
We worry that it’s all about ego. (Believe me, if all we wanted was ego-gratification, there are LOTS of easier ways to go about it.)
We worry that it won’t work. (But there’s no way of finding out if it will work without trying it – and failure is a wonderful, wonderful teacher.)
So once you’ve done your homework and you’ve prepped and proofed as much as you can, there’s nothing for it but to take a deep breath, bend your knees and JUMP!
And what felt like terror will turn into EXHILARATION.
