Musings Of A Bootcamper

Last Update: April 15, 2013
Joining WA has been kinda like diving from a high platform for me.

After I joined WA, I found myself so excited and terrified at the same time. It was like standing on that high platform above a pool and being ever so afraid to jump.

So, I spent some time just standing there, looking down at the water. My heart was racing and the blood was pumping through my veins at a rapid pace. "What would this be like?" I mused, standing there so still. When I throw my body in to the abyss, there's definitely no turning back.

What am I afraid of?

Well, heights, for one: elevators, high buildings with glass floors, etc. Terrifying! Always has been!

Fear of Failure?

Will it hurt when I hit the water? Will I go to the bottom and never come up? Will I drown? Probably not.

Minutes turned in to days, turned into weeks, turned into months.

Then, I finally jumped in to Bootcamp, Phase 1, Lesson 1. "Wow," I thought, "This is exhilarating!" There's something about that free fall - finally, bending your knees, springing out and letting your feet leave the platform.

There I was in the deep of the water.

I opened my eyes and truly saw for the first time the true value of WA. I swam toward the surface to take that first breath of precious air. Ahhhhh, air! And as I swam to the side of the pool, I thought, "Hey, I think I'll climb that platform again - Lesson 2 and so on and so on.

The answer to your fear and procrastination is, Jump In!

It isn't scary anymore, standing there at the edge of the platform. It's life changing. So, jump in to Boot Camp! You will be exhilarated!

LOL. .... chlorine, blah.... ozone, blah.... :P However, you've learnt the most important lesson in my opinion, which is "Take Action!". You can't learn to swim by just by reading about it or watching videos. Rinse. Repeat. Practise. Practise. Practise. :) R. x

Oh Kathy, I remember how nervous I was with my first website. I was afraid the world would end when I hit the key to actually put it online! :D That was five years ago, and now I feel like an old hand.

Jumping right in is the answer. It does get easier!
