How do you PUSH PAST the fear of REJECTION? Another first for me

Last Update: April 22, 2021

Have you ever been rejected in your life?

Do you remember the feeling and thoughts that consumed you after being rejected?

Did the fear that built up before you took action seem like it was impossible to do or say what you wanted to?

Today, I took another courageous step towards building my online brand and the anticipation is driving me crazy.

The Merlot that I am enjoying is helping to calm my nerves.

Today Is My YouTube Launch Day


Today is the big day!

At precisely 6 PM ET, my YouTube (YT) channel launches with its first video. It is nothing complicated. A very simple voice-over PowerPoint presentation that introduces my YT Channel and all that it will offer.

Am I nervous?

Hell yes!!!

But I am determined not to let fear hold me back. I am also not getting caught up in the imperfections of it all.

It is done and it is out there for the world to see.

What Is The Worse That Can Happen?


Well, people may not like it.

No one will watch it.

I may not get any comments.

They will not like my voice.

All of that is fine. I have been there before. First date. First interview. First job. First exam. We have all been there.

I prefer to focus on the best that can happen.

I will get feedback and I will use that feedback to learn, improve and grow.

Last week, I shared that by simply taking action, you are in the top 5-10% of the world.

So please, stop procrastinating. Keep stepping up.

Go Cassi GO! All systems GO!
Right on your way to Rock this world.

This is just another medium, YT, for your beautiful, valuable, helpful, fruitful expression of yourself, reaching out to offer experiential guidance, wisdom, and encouragement to another.

Thank you Cassi, from the bottom of my heart to the top of my heart.
You are just so profound. Heroes are not just guys who row when the going gets tough.

Let us not forget the She-rows. Cassi loves a good challenge and she's going to teach it as much as it teaches her!
She's going to teach it to mind,and take it to mind, because she is a mommy, and a grand mommy? too. It better mind her! She is going to OVER come any challenge, and that is what she is going to teach her children, grands, and you and I:

You are here on this earth for a purpose. You can not be defeated by anyone but yourself.
So always be on your own side. Never be against yourself!

Cassi, studies "not now" deeply, and turns "not now" into HOW to accomplish the thing.
Brains be working, and wheels be turning in that Girl!

Bless her heart, she is one of the Best, and Rising on the Horizon.
So proud of you, meet you up there some day!
Much LOVE to you Cassi,
Suzay

I LIKE YOUR youtube CHANNEL! I even emailed Twack about it.

And I always "like" and "subscribe" for my WA buddies, but yours is off to an EXCELLENT BEGINNING! (Cassi selling Books)

I listened to / watched all of them twice. Maybe everyday would be a good Rx for me!

! see Cassi speaking to huge rooms full of avid fans, waiting on your every word...

Yeah Cassi! Yeah! God Bless you more and more!

ok- I'm gonna be bold and just ask what a lot of others want to but haven't. Are you gonna share with us what your channel name is so we can follow you there also. You're a huge inspiration here on WA and I'm guessing it won't be any different on YT.
Congrats on taking the step... and I'm betting on you rather than rejection!!!

I do appreciate your kind words and sentiments and hope that I do not disappoint.

Scheduled posting is every Thursday, for now.

Thank you for your support and interest.

Searched two times to no avail but it showed up the third (weird). But loved it when I found it. Great job. Keep on keeping on!

Hello Cassi,

I hope you're doing well and business is good.

It's great that you are setting up a YouTube channel, that's a good step forward. I once heard a preacher say; "You are better doing something in faith and making a mistake rather than sitting there and doing nothing"! I have never forgotten his words!

I believe that the above phrase is so very true, although, the Pastor was talking about the Christian faith rather than YouTube! However, I believe it still works for our business. We can't just stand still and do nothing, we have to try things, we have to experiment, we have to be consistent.

There are far too many people doing absolutely nothing and wondering why the business is not growing. I know that you are an action taker Cassi and that starting your YouTube channel and being consistent will definitely work for you.

I have various videos out on YouTube, some of the videos have just a few views and one video has a 1/4 of a million views. We never know who's going to like our videos. Sometimes it's unbelievable what people like, often it's the opposite of what we think.

I think that Roope is a great example as he has shown consistency which makes a huge difference. Due to my offline business, my schedule rate for our YouTube videos is very sporadic which is actually really bad. It's important to put out videos regularly rather than sporadically.

Just a tip, I try and imagine that I'm talking to one person rather than an audience. Almost like having a one-to-one conversation with someone. If you have a couple of monitors it's good to have a bullet pointed list of things you want to talk about. In this way, you can just glance at one of the screens.

I know that you will kick fear in the face and you will do it Cassi.

Have a great weekend.

Roy, you have given me some really good ideas here!

I like the bullet points and laying out what I want to say.
Talking one-on-one is also an excellent way of projecting ease and confidence.

Playing around with a permanent space at this weekend and getting myself more organised.

250,000 views!!
That is AWESOME!
Congratulations!

Thank you for sharing so much with me.

Good morning Cassi,

It's a pleasure to try and help Cassi.

Regarding playing around with a permanent space, in some ways I would just make your videos from your workspace. However, I don't know what type of videos you are making, so maybe it's not appropriate to make the videos from your desk.

The majority of the videos that I create are sharing my screen with a small picture of myself in the right-hand corner. I use Camtasia and Snagit to create videos, both these products are made by Techsmith. The two products are two stand-alone products, I believe they do a special deal if you purchase both products.

I probably use Camtasia 85% of the time, Snagit is the cheaper product, although still excellent and definitely worth using.

One thing is for sure, just be yourself, don't try and be anyone else. We have all been created individuals and are all uniquely made. That in itself is enough to make your videos different from everyone else's!

I'm going to send you a private message regarding a few other items.

Have a great weekend.

Roy
