The most crippling thing you can do in your web design business is not take action out of fear.
Fear of the unknown.
Fear of making the wrong decision.
Fear of not being liked.
Fear of making mistakes. Getting it wrong. Fucking it up.
Fear of playing big.
Fear of being selfish.
Fear of being judged.
Fear of SUCCESS even!
When you’re on the verge of playing big and stepping into your genius you start comparing yourself to others. You spend hours online pouring over every other designer’s website, their blog, their programs… you sign up to their newsletters, you watch their videos, you read their eBooks, and whilst it’s great to ‘research’ — the real you starts to slowly become discouraged.
And you feel like shit.
You retreat back inside your shell and tell yourself a story that goes something like:
“Oh they’re so good, why would anyone buy from me when they’re doing what I want to do… I don’t know what I’m talking about… why would anyone listen? I’ll just play it safe and stay within my comfort zone and one day I’ll know enough to be like them.”
You catch what I call ‘comparinitis’.
And as you pour hours, days, weeks and sometimes months analysing everyone else, you’re paralysed and don’t take action at all.
Analysis paralysis can destroy you and your dreams if you let it take a hold.
It all stops you from taking your thinking and your business to that next level.
I met with a rockstar designer the other day who was paralysed by choice. It’s a dead easy trap to fall into these days with such a digital world, let’s just say.
It’s easy to keep burrowing deep down into a ton of different rabbit holes and get completely lost in choice.
Your business name. Your website. Your free offer. Products. Services. Hourly Rate. Social Media Platform. Blog. Newsletter. Platform. Developers. Marketing. Rates. Video. Clients. Messaging. Copywriters. Niche. Staff. Money. Freedom. Success. Arrghhh
No wonder business is only for the 1%.
But the one thing you really have to do?
Well you’ll just have to watch to find out…
Leave me a comment and let me know what you do when the dark analysis paralysis comparinitis cloud sets in.
You were born for this.
