If you want to conduct the orchestra you have to turn your back on the crowd…
Recently I put a post out on facebook with the subject line of this email and I got a lot of people coming back to me with messages saying they love that statement.
I thought since it got great feedback it might help you too FIRSTNAME.
See sometimes we forget that part of the journey to achieve our goals is standing up for something we are passionate about in spite of any negativity and feedback.
Sometimes it’s easier to just do nothing than to actually do something.
Very often we let what other people dictate our actions and behaviours meaning we don’t build or create the things we are truly passionate about.
And guess what…all these things lead us to become paralysed if we aren’t careful.
I’ve been there, Stressed and worried about how other people were going to react to my ideas, projects and statements.
Where did it get me? In a spiral that led to more stress and anxiety.
Of course I’ve had my fair share or scepticism and criticism and you know what? It hardens you up and makes you push harder! Because like the subject says “If you want to conduct the orchestra you have to turn your back on the crowd”.
So let’s re-evaluate for a second here.
I presume you have some goals in your life that you really want to achieve. (You wouldn’t be reading this unless that was the case!)
Well ask yourself this question?
how will you feel if you don’t take action?
If you don’t have a proper go at building these goals?
So is the little bit of pain you get from one or two people thinking things anywhere near the pain you will feel from not actually starting it?
Very unlikely. And if it is, it might be worth re-evaluating your focus a little bit.
So right now it’s worth asking yourself if you want the conductors job or not.
If you do it’s just not worth drifting along in conflict any more.
Like the powerlifters often say, surely it’s better to decide to go big or go home?
And if that’s you I want to hear from you. If I can help just reach out. I might just have the perfect programme for you.
