You may be someone who gets a sinking terror at even the thought of doing a live video.
Yet you know you probably should be doing live sales if you want to be as successful as possible.
So what can you do to overcome that fear and do what you need to do?
Here are some tips that can help.
Understand that This is Common
The fear of doing live videos is by no means unusual. It is a fear felt by many.
So recognize that you’re not alone, and that many of the successful consultants you’ve seen likely had some of the same fears and concerns as you before they got to the point they are currently.
Have the Right Attitude
It may be very difficult to just “stop being afraid.”
But you can have the right attitude and resolve to do whatever it takes to succeed. Your resolve and motivation must be strong enough to overcome the terror you might feel about doing a live video.
You may need to stop and evaluate your why – What is your motivation for being a consultant and for wanting to grow your business? If your motivation isn’t strong enough, consider adjusting it.
What’s important is to take ownership and recognize that although it can be difficult to control a feeling of fear, it’s up to you how you respond to that fear.
Stop Focusing So Much on Coming Across as Perfect
Some reasons people may fear doing a live video include concerns such as “I hate what I look like on camera,” “It will not be professional enough,” or “I’m too awkward.”
These concerns and others like it are common, but they don’t really reflect reality.
The truth is that generally, people do not examine us as much as we examine ourselves. When we start to realize that often other people aren’t nearly as obsessed with our flaws as we are, it can be freeing.
If you don’t look the way you wish you looked, if you say something awkward on your live, if you do something that makes you feel foolish – People may notice briefly, but you know what? They’ll probably forget about it the next day.
People aren’t scrutinizing you to make sure your video is perfect. In fact, they may be able to relate better to you by observing you as you are, someone real, not a fake perfect person.
Just Do It
Sometimes the best way to push past a fear is to stop overanalyzing and just do it.
You don’t have to have it all figured out. True, you probably want to have some kind of plan before you hit live, but don’t get stuck in analysis paralysis.
The first time will be the hardest. But the more you do it, the easier it will get.
So particularly your first few times, you may just need to stop thinking and go for it. Hit that live button even though you don’t feel totally prepared, even though that fear may be nagging within you.
I’ll bet you’ll find that after a few minutes your fear will be significantly subsided, and you’ll wonder what you were so afraid of.
