We all have fears, at least at one point or another, of putting ourselves out there. Especially when you want to create something and put it out into the world. Here are my top four tips on getting over this fear so you can bring your creative ideas to fruition.
Tip #1. What’s the worst that can happen?
Truthfully ask yourself, “What’s the worst that can happen if I create my idea and put it out into the world?” Usually the outcome isn’t as bad as wondering, “What if?” years from now if you dropped the idea.
Tip #2. Do your research
Doing your research first to see if there are actually people out there interested in the solution or idea you are working on can either save yourself a lot of time and energy, or encourage you to move on with the idea. Check how many people are searching for similar topics on Google using the Google keyword tool. Take a look around on Amazon or other websites to see if there are books or classes on the subject.
Tip #3. Check in with your peeps
Get in touch with some real people who may be interested in what you are creating. Are they excited about the idea? Do you get good feedback on social media when you talk about this topic?
Tip #4. Take your first step
If you’ve gotten some good feedback on your idea, its time to take that first step in creating your idea. The first step is always the hardest. But in taking that first step, you will gain the courage to finish it.
Everyone has fears, but as long as you take the steps to move past it, you can do anything!
