Full Transcript: All right, welcome, all of you. Thanks for joining me again today! I wanted to jump in real quickly and answer a question that I got and I think is really valid and relevant to most people listening. This came from Jamba, he's a listener of unbreakable success podcast and he says, "How can I get the confidence to share my expertise on videos, podcast, live streams, or even live stages? I know I need to, but I'm terrified of embarrassing myself." Jamba, I've so been there. I've been there and I'm sure all of you listening right now have either been there or know someone who has felt like this. Look, let's face it. None of us want to embarrass ourselves. We want to look good. We want people to respect us and the work we do and when we put ourselves out there on these platforms, it can be daunting, especially if we haven't done it before or we haven't done it much. I'm going to give you my best advice because I'll be honest, even though I've been teaching since the 1990's and I've had to show for the past couple years, there are still days that I feel nerves. It's very common. If there's one thing I did, and I'm going to share two answers to help all of us overcome this issue, but if there's one thing I did, if I had to narrow it down to just a single action that I took that helped me overcome that issue of worrying about embarrassing myself, It was this: I just did it. The number one answer is to do it! If you want to get on podcasts and that terrifies you. Get on podcasts! Get on as many as you can! If you want to do videos for your website, for your coaching service, whatever it is that you want to put out there, the only way you're going to get over that fear -- you're not going to think your way out of it, you have to do it and do it a lot. I promise you, I remember, I remember the first time I recorded a podcast the episode was a solo episode. I wasn't doing interviews for my first show and I wasn't recording it live. It wasn't going out live to people. I was just doing a recording and I was going to have to upload it to the server and put it out on the show, but I was so nervous to even hit the record button even though nobody was going to hear it except me and the dogs because they were, they were hanging around at the time. But guess what I did is I uploaded it and some people heard it and guess what? Nothing bad happened. And that's what's going to happen. And that's why it's so important to do these things because the more you do them, the more you're going to realize nothing bad is actually going to happen. You're going to go on shows, you're going to go on livecasts, you're going to get on some stages, do some podcasts, put some video on your website, and nothing bad will happen! And guess what? On the flip side, something good will probably probably happened because the fact is you'll start connecting with people because you obviously have expertise. Because if you didn't have any good expertise, if you didn't have something of value to offer, you wouldn't feel so compelled to get on these stages and get exposure in the first place. You want this exposure. You want to reach people and do these things because you have something to share that you know can help people and that's the most important thing. So do it Jamba, get on stages, do some live streams, do some video, slap it on your website, do some podcasts. Trust me, I'm sure you're a good person with all that good stuff to share, and there are a ton of shows out there that I'm sure would be happy to have you on. Get on as many as you can and you will be all right I promise you. The second thing,
