Why I Am Scared?

Last Update: August 31, 2020

After a month of pounding Kyle's excellent training, I thought I should write my first blog post. My excuse has always been, "Well, I have nothing to share with the WA Community, they all know so much more than me!"

Then I remembered that part of learning, growing and stretching myself is this:

"Do something every day that scares you half to death."

I have consistently written in an online personal journal for nearly 20 years. Because it's very personal stuff, it is locked and no one can ready it. I have resisted the notion of other people reading what I write. It feels, well, scary.

As I've followed Kyle's training, I have written three keyword-rich posts on my site. But again, only a few people have read them, so I'm still in the safe zone. So I'm going to do something I've been resisting and write my first blog post.

Thanks for all your examples of hard work, determination and willingness to do something new. I hope all of you continue to learn, grow and do something scary every day!

There, that wasn't that bad.

Yay, thumbs up for you, Garin! There is always a first time to everything!

You've got this, blogging here in WA. Everyone has their own insights, experiences and moments of enlightenment to share that can benefit somebody.

I have my own fears too - creating videos. That is why I have put off building a Youtube channel for too long. Even my 12 year old son is doing better than me in this aspect.

Have a great day and week ahead!

Thanks Joo. It's reassuring to know that even a veteran like you has fears they need to face. Thanks for all your support!

Way to go. Now that the first one is out of the way and in your words "wasn't so bad" you will be able to keep up the momentum with more posts for your site and more sharing here in WA.
You got this. One step at a time. Best wishes.
