I was listening to the My First Million podcast and the guys said these 3 steps are the self-sabotaging actions of everyone building things.
It resonated so much that I thought I’d share it. No matter how many things I’ve launched, I always go through these myself.
Death by analysis. Overthinking it and doubting ourselves: Am I good enough? Do I have enough time? Do I have the skills? Am I passionate about this? What if it doesn’t work? What if it does work out?
“It’s harder than I through”. Once we start building we always find unforeseen challenges. This is when we want to quit because it seems too difficulty, it’s taking too long, it’s above our pay grade. Doubts all over the place. Sleep on it and keep going.
The Perfectionist. Finally you made it to the 90% mark but you’re so close to launching, all the fears rush back to you as you think about releasing your creations into the wild. We all find enough excuses to keep us busy for another 3 months. We work on useless details that don’t matter for the business and nobody will ever notice.
If you’re going through these stages, just know that EVERYONE is experiencing these and it’s okay. The superpower is to recognize that you’re in one of these stages, overwrite the fears and keep on pushing forward.
You are capable of incredible things that you’re not even aware of yet.
