Those that turn up

October 6th, 2008

Woody Allen said:

“Eighty percent of success is showing up.”

However when you go to turn up, you get a sudden fear, a feeling in your stomach, so you stop.

That’s why free events have high rsvp low turn out rates.  

Rather than endure the feeling in your stomach you just don’t go. No pain if you don’t

However same thing happens in life, only your letting yourself down.

You need to stop.

Ignore this and dive in.

Been contemplating blogging? building a website? learning a new hobby? always let this pain stop you?

My advice is to learn to love the pain, thrive on it, throw yourself into it, scare yourself.

Some call this throwing yourself in the deep end.

If your not scaring yourself your not pushing yourself, so scare yourself and turn up. 

(that’s where success is hidden)
