photography training planning for success

One of the biggest things that can hold you back is . . . yourself. I’ve come to this realization over the past year, and have vowed to change my ways.

Here’s my motto for 2014:

If you’re not nervous about something you’re working on, you’re not pushing yourself forward.

Doubt, fear of disappointment and fear of failure can leave us dead in our tracks. Being busy can prevent you from keeping your sights on the bigger picture. You can’t see beyond your office doors. Fear can easily kick in because there’s so much riding on your reputation.

All these things are looming over our heads at all times. But what if we had no fear? What if we did everything with boldness and confidence? Where would our business be, and, for that matter, where would our lives be? I’ve found that the bolder I am, the more successful I feel I have the potential to be.

So how to start off 2014 on the right track? Start by getting a mentor/coach. For the purposes of this article, I am going to call this person a coach. I grew up playing organized sports, and that experience is rife with business analogies.
