My friend and I are talking, and you know that feeling when someone mirrors back to you something that seems obvious, but for a second you’re able to see it through that other person’s eyes? It’s kind of a marvelous “ah ha” moment.
My friend said, “I really admire how you were able to get your new business running. You just said ‘No one else made what I wanted, so I did it myself.’”
Yeah, so. Isn’t that what you do? No big deal. Isn’t life about finding interesting and challenging things you want to do, then doing them? Hello Captain Obvious!
Except for a moment, I could see exactly how my friend would not do something like that, so my doing it appears larger than life to her. As she sees it, I have ventured out from safety into something wild and costly and unknown. I’ve stopped pining for something I wanted, and just set off to take it/make it instead. I’ve jumped the fence of fear. I’m running hell-bent into new pastures.
How cool. Except from my POV, making InFlowRadio was almost a boring inevitability.
I’ve been kicked in the ass enough times for not changing when the universe prompted me to change, that now I want to get ahead of the curve. To me, that is the safer road, even though it looks the exact opposite to an outsider.
Still water stagnates. You know the feeling of “I’ve been here too long, things have changed, I have changed?” That is the least safe feeling you can have. Because that only ends one way: You make a break for it, sooner or later.
Sooner is easier, later is hard.
Case in point: On InFlowRadio.com right now, five of my former or current M.E. school students are hosting their own live radio shows.
They had zero experience going in. And they are kicking butt.
This is amazing. It says they’ve each adopted the same feeling as me: “Go for it, go big. Here’s an opportunity.”
And they took it.
They didn’t wait for someone else to go first. They didn’t sit back and tell themselves they weren’t big enough or known enough yet. Each one said, “I have a plan to share my gift and build a beautiful tribe around me. This is a piece of my plan. Let’s start now.”
And that’s the thing. We so often say, “Someone else will do it.” Or, “Someone else is already doing it.” And, “When will someone else do it?”
Here is the fact: Someone else WILL do whatever you are wanting to do. They will. Guaranteed.
So that begs the question: why don’t YOU do it? You think these other people have an edge on you? You think they’re going to do better, be bigger, go brighter?
Are you already comparing yourself to other people before you or they have even started?
Because that’s the way you stay small. You cut off the road before you step in it. You give the road over to someone else to walk.
I’d love to see five more of you broadcasting on our station.
I want five more of you who’re ready to build your brand, build your following, and discover your message. Yes, discover.
The only way to find your message is to begin sharing it. Messages don’t arrive rolled on scrolls under your pillow one night. They are built and discovered through sharing. Having your own live radio show is ideal for developing your message. It’s how I built Flowdreaming. It’s how I learned Flowdreaming. My audience taught me.
What is your message? What’s your skill? What are your insights?
If you think hosting your own live radio show is a super fun idea, then email me, and I’ll send you our Host Application.
I produced Dr. Wane Dyer, Louise Hay, Doreen Virtue, Gregg Braden, Abraham-Hicks and scores of others on HayHouseRadio. I’m pretty sure I’d know what to do with you.
One request please: I wish I could, but I can’t give away these shows. It does cost money to hold a position on the network. I invest in you, and you invest in the station. So please be able and willing to invest in your growth and in your message. It’s very likely your tribe will repay you a thousand times over.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll take it from there!
Love to you all!
