In my first Etsy Tips vlog, I wanted to touch on a few related topics – taking the first step, conquering indecision and overcoming fear. Sometimes the only thing getting in the way of success is our own selves. The mind is a powerful thing, but we can outsmart it by simply taking action in the face of doubt.
Stop Planning (or Worrying) & Start Doing – Get Past Fear or Doubt
HIGHLIGHTS from the Video
Don’t let YOU get in your way. Fear is an illusion. Sometimes we create obstacles because we are afraid to succeed and be truly happy. There are many reasons for this, but in this moment, you have a chance to move forward. Take one step at a time. Just keep moving forward. Your doubts and fears will still exist, but they don’t dictate what choices you make.
FOR YOUR ETSY SHOP:
- Choose an item you love to make, and follow the steps in Etsy: Smart & Simple. It doesn’t matter if this is what you will be making a month from now. Just go forward from wherever you’re at, and allow everything to unfold. Trust the process.
- Enjoy the process. Learn more. Learn about yourself and what you enjoy doing.
