Are you hesitating to start a new blog or a new YouTube Channel or an App or a Startup? I know that exact feeling and I also know how to WIN over it!

Let me tell you a secret, that will help you to overcome it right away!

In the beginning, no one will even look at your work! So don’t even worry of the world trying to judge you!

In this blog, I am going to give you four more tips that helped me to overcome my fears.

Start with Why?

Let’s say you want to write a blog, ask yourself why do you want to do that? Are you writing to express your feeling? Are you writing anything that you learned that could help others? Are you writing to entertain? or want to give out a message to society?

Before doing anything, spend some time with yourself and understand your Why? A good “Why?” will always be driven by you, only then you will be able to stick it to it for longer. A bad Why? would be result-oriented, like I want to become famous, or make millions, etc because becoming famous or making money is the result of your work that is most often not in your control.

Have a Strong “Why?” that could drive you to do your work and not worry about your result.

Allow yourself to make mistakes in the beginning

Many do not even start their work, just because they want to make it perfect even before starting. Start as an amateur, enjoy the process!

If someone slams your mistakes to your face, then you must be happy that at least that person spent time with your work! That’s a positive sign!

Think to yourself that, “My work will have a lot of mistakes, but my goal is to make it as little as possible.” and let go of perfectionism.

You have to be perfect only if you're doing highly critical things that affect people’s lives but otherwise, the trial and error method is fine. You will learn from it.

Every Pro was a Beginner once

If anyone insults you for your work, in the beginning, it would be mostly the one who has never even tried to do the work that you are doing. I have observed it my entire life. Usually, a Pro will understand the beginner and usually give guidance and constructive criticism.

Either way, if you are getting any feedback be it good or bad, you should be happy that your work is being noticed by others in the first place! That is a positive sign!

If you are humble within yourself about your beginnings then the noise in the world would not really matter.

Enjoy the journey, you will be a beginner only once!

Every time you work and publish it to the world you will take one step closer to becoming a pro. If you just keep thinking in your head and never put out any work, then you will always be a beginner but if you start putting your work out to the world, the phase of being a beginner is going to be very small, you will soon become better than many beginners who started later than you!

The only way to overcome your fear is to work and publish as many times as possible and as soon as possible!

If you keep these things in your mind and start your journey, I believe you won’t worry about what others think, and also you will be humble and will accept the response of the world and use it for your good!

I wish you all the success in whatever you want to start for the greater good of the world!
