Why I “Go For It”10/6/2017
I recently had an opportunity to present to a group that I knew very little about, that reached out to me rather unexpectedly via LinkedIn.
After a few phone calls and skype meetings we had an agenda and topics for me to present.
In a couple of days, I had a presentation prepared that I knew I could deliver with confidence, clarity, and conviction.
As I was driving to the airport it hit me that I am literally going to be back in 24 hours.
Then for the first time during this whole process, it occurs to me this wasn’t normal.
For the first time, I wondered if I was capable of pulling this off.
Well it was too late now, so I just refocused on doing my best.
I will admit the day was a bit surreal, several times throughout the day the thought popped back in my head.
And then what felt like just a couple of hours I was back in the car on my way to the airport heading home.
I felt the day went very well, I don’t know if I fulfilled their vision for the presentation, but I did the best I knew how and that is all I can ask of myself.
During the flight home, while reflecting on the day’s events, I realized something.
At no time did I ever consider not doing it!
At no time did I question, if I could do it, if I was capable of doing it.
Sure, I’ve never done it before, so what. 100’s if not 1,000’s of people do this every day.
If they can do it, I certainly can.
The list of things I’ve done and tried seems nearly endless, because, “Going For It” is part of my daily activities.
What is your reaction when a new opportunity presents itself, do you “Go For It”?
I hope you are living a fulfilled life by “Going For It”, if not, give it a try, you will thank yourself.
