|You hear it all the time, right?|
Like Chrissy Metz, from This Is Us. She had 70 cents left in her bank account when she auditioned for her starring role and SHE GOT THE JOB!
Most people hit it big years and years after they put in the work, the time, the sacrifice.
I don’t like reading about the one year wonders…”In the first 90 days of my business, I hit $1 million dollars.” It’s so discouraging and I’d bet my right foot it’s not true.
As I was planning out the next 90 days of my biz, I started thinking about a time in college when I was going to teach a dance class.
I was so scared.
I took this Cardio Groove dance class twice a week for almost two years before the instructor suggested I start teaching it.
First of all, she was like an expert dancer in my eyes, so the fact that she thought I could fill her shoes left my jaw dropped to the floor.
I didn’t think twice about accepting. HELL YA. I got to work.
I started practicing and teaching my friends, which ended in hysterical laughter because how the hell do you 8 – count?
My background was in gymnastics and cheer and it always took me three times as long to learn dances with counts, than 90% of the team.
But I accepted the challenge….kind of…
The day before my audition, I went out (I was in college).
Not the smartest thing to do.
I drank too much and ended up breaking my ankle and foot.
Easy excuse – no audition.
I think the broken foot thing happened because of fear.
I was so freakin’ scared about auditioning and subconsciously I was trying to get out of it, so I ended up “getting out of it.”
Definitely would’ve been easier to say, I’m not ready. But that’s not my style, so instead I had to break my foot.
I’ll never know what could’ve happened had I not gone out, had I practiced until I was confident I could do it, had I told her I needed more time or more guidance to teach the class while counting, etc. etc. etc.
Here’s what I do know…
We never know how anything is going to turn out unless we do it.
Unless we take off the life jacket and fuckin’ sink or swim.
No one sinks.
We might tread water or go in a little too deep, but we breast stroke to the other side. Sure, with some panting and wheezing but WE MAKE IT.
If you’re reading this, You possess those qualities, J?
YES YOU DO!
We never really know, do we J? Unless we try.
