“Do your best… then do better.”
Immersing myself into the wonderful world of Social Media Unicorn and joining the phenomenal team earlier this month, I already can see that my wish has come true. Allow me to preface you with some back story:
For some time now, as in the last six years, I have had developed some sort mental block when it comes to social media. I found myself putting out content then wanting for my audience to engage, and yet when they did finally engage, I would freeze and fail to respond. Numerous times I have found myself wanting to strengthen friendships, establish new contacts through networking, or participate in an event; however, after making initial contact, I would fizzle off after a message or two.
This behavior has been bothering me for some time. I have been completely unsure of what the root of my social (media) anxiety is, but I knew that I didn’tt want to keep it up anymore. This even reached to the bounds of my e-mailbox, where I had a clutter of over a thousand emails.
I started with little steps: Deleting old emails. Unsubscribing. Combing through Facebook messages to organize the messages that are just filler and those that need responding. One step at a time. Above all, I was manifesting, telling myself that I would get over these anxieties and become a more productive person… and then Krista happened to me.
Through stepping out of my comfort zones, I corresponded with an old friend from college, was then connected with Krista, and a unicorn was born. Synchronicity occurred full force when sitting in a meeting, I heard Krista say, ”do your best, and then do better.” For a while now I felt like I was doing my best, but only recently I realized I was doing the best with what I could at the time, but my situation could be better. I needed to push myself. I needed a new environment so that I could, ”do better.” I now have a job, nay — a career, where I am forcing myself to achieve those goals of facing anxiety, empowering myself, and growing. The concept that I have been envisioning was verbalized the other day in that meeting room — my eureka moment — and everything came full-circle.
Do you suffer from social anxiety or other weird hang ups too? Lets talk about them and how to “be better!” Comment bellow, lets work on excellence together!
