Putting yourself out there is something that most of us only dream about. We all have regretted NOT doing something. In fact, most of us find this happening again and again in our lives.
If you don’t put yourself out there and take a risk, you are DESTINED TO FAIL.
In this post, Blitz Inc reviews a couple examples of people who put themselves out there when no one thought they could make it…and guess what…they made it. And no, this post is not about famous failures…although these people might become famous in the future.
You’re dumb for trying.
You’re not good enough.
No one ever does well with that. Don’t even try.
Sound familiar? Do you believe these statements? Why? Are the people telling you these things an authority on the subject?
Ultra-successful people have heard others say these things to them as well. The only difference between them and you is…they didn’t listen to them.
Put Yourself Out There: Cameron Johnson
I’m sure that you’ve heard of Cameron Johnson by now…but maybe you haven’t. I’ll save you the long biography. He’s an ultra successful millionaire…previously a teen millionaire but has grown up since. Watch this video where he is interviewed by Donny Deutsch on the Big Idea.
In this video of Cameron Johnson on the Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, he talks about getting rid of fear and self-doubt, finding someone to look up to, and putting yourself out there and taking a chance.
Just imagine if this guy fell into the false reality of everyone else who forms the status quo around us. Lost hopes and dreams, a ton of regrets, and a ton of debt just like everyone else.
If you are just getting started in your path to success, I hope you understand why you should put yourself out there and take risks. If you don’t, you’ll be like everyone else who doesn’t.
But who wants that?!
Put Yourself Out There Like Christopher Maloney
Still not convinced that you HAVE TO put yourself out there and take risks to find success? Watch this next video. If your eyes don’t water a little bit or you don’t get goosebumps, you have no soul. 🙂
Christopher Maloney’s X Factor UK audition is one to bookmark for future motivation. This guy applied to be on this show, what, five years?? But NEVER actually sent in the envelope? Maybe he wasn’t ready, maybe his voice matured and it sounds better now, but whatever. I see you pessimists shaking your head. If a person listens to everyone else, they will be like everyone else.
Blitz Inc on Putting Yourself Out There and Taking Risks
Here’s what I think…
We only have one life to live. I know that this isn’t a novel concept and you probably figured that out a while back. But here’s the thing…we can’t take what we learned in this life and apply it to the next. We can’t say, “Man, I wish I would have said something to that pretty girl when there was an OBVIOUS moment there. I think I’ll do that next time.” OR “Man, that opportunity looked like it could have taken me places, but it just wasn’t the perfect fit at the time. This second life that I have will be different.”
NEWSFLASH: You don’t get a second chance and things will never be the right time.
If we only have one life to live, than why are so many of us NOT LIVING IT?
But who controls that? Who decides what you can or cannot try to do?
Here’s what Jared Leto of 30 Seconds to Mars says about it (and a TON of other folks) in their new “City of Angels” video (short film).
“If this is the only life, then why am I not just doing everything that I want to do?” – James Franco
