THE GENEROUS CHANGE PODCAST

EPISODE 14 - TRY NEW (HARD) THINGS

Episode 13: Try New (Hard) Things

*Explicit! Adult language in this episode.*

On day 531 of entrepreneurship, we're exploring trying new, hard things! 

Big Ideas:

  • Name your fears. Say them out loud. There's science behind this! Once you give your fears a name, they are less scary. If you're terrified of a change, stressed out about work or a big decision, write down your fears. Then, tell someone! Talk it out.
  • Everyone else DOESN'T have it all figured out. Let's stop trying to appear so damn perfect. Everyone is a beginner at something at different times in our lives. Admit when you're a newbie. Ask questions. Get advice. Find a coach or a mentor. BE a coach or a mentor. Then, do something new all over again!
  • New = Memorable. It's easy to remember our firsts - first day of school, first dance, first kiss, first car, first house. Do more firsts. Make more memories. Grow.
