My Mind Will Ruin Me Someday
And you as well.
It’s me again :) It’s a bittersweet feeling I have for this weekend.
I’ve been working non-stop for about ten days so far and there’s been added pressure because the LinkedIn Playbook has almost reached 50 pre-orders and now my mind has gone on a rollercoaster. Thoughts like:
Is this good enough?
What if people shit on me online?
Will it add as much value as I want it to?
You know this is the exact same feeling I’ve had when I:
Launched a course
*Thought* of launching anything
Quit my job
Thats the thing with your mind. It seeks solace in being comfortable and average. The moment you step out for greatness, it will jump all over the place and keep hitting you till you feel terrible.
Have you ever felt this way?
I honestly stubbed away these thoughts as thoughts and focussed on getting the work done. The more I worked, the less I had these thoughts. Which again, isn’t healthy.
But I’m off for this weekend so YAY.
Also, I know most worst-case scenarios only exist in my head. Isn’t that with all of us? We think of the worst ways of things going down which will probably never happen. It’s the way for your mind to keep safe.
It’s the reason such few people take risks.
By telling you this, I’m doing the opposite of what good marketing is. Good marketing means we don’t show we’re shit scared, we appear to be confident. But this newsletter is one place where I’ve always been and will continue to be my truest self.
What I’m Upto
Listening - Deep Dive with Ali Abdaal. I’m currently listening to his personal Q&A.
Reading - Sex Matters: From Sex to Superconsciousness by Osho (no, it’s not raunchy lol)
Listening - I like Bloom from Prateek Kuhad’s new album.
Studying - enrolled on the Creatorpreneur course by Ali Abdaal (you can tell, I’m his fan!)
Watching - I’ve been watching New York apartment tours on YouTube for some reason… I love skyscrapers and NYC is a dream city for me because of Gossip Girl.
See you next week!
Also, a gentle nudge that if you’re interested, the special pre-order offer on my Linkedin Content Mastery Playbook will end on the 2nd of July. Just use the code LAUNCH.
