When you need to see it to believe
I've always been the type of person who errs on the side of caution rather than taking a risk. As I child I can remember playing board games, and never making any moves that involved risk. I guess I just felt that if I hung onto what I already had, I was in a better position than if I risked what I had in an effort to earn more.
With this in mind, I'd like to share just how difficult it was for me to actually sign up for a premium membership, and then purchase my own domain. I actually lost half a nights sleep over it! Even now, I wish I could feel sure about what I'm doing. I've read lots and lots of positive posts, and received positive feedback to my questions and posts, and still I feel uncertain.
I can say with certainty, that at this point I don't believe a single one of your success stories would lift this cloud of uncertainty for me. I need to see my own success happen, even if it's just a tiny step of success. Right now, your success stories are not translating into personal confidence. I just need to see it myself to believe it.
I'm not a risk taker, and I have a habit of needing to see things for myself, and yet, I'm still here. I'm still working, I'm still walking through the training. I'm taking one step at a time, and doing my best to stay positive!
So if you have a hard time understanding why some of us newbies aren't 100% convinced yet, why we seem cautious and afraid to jump right in, please just have patience. Some of us are just trying to keep it together until we can see it for ourselves!
