First off, I have something to brag about. My family is debt free. We have been working on it since the Fall of 2007. It has been hard, but it is totally worth it. We are now able to build wealth and are not controlled by the banks. What would your life be like without payments?
Now the topic of the day.
One of my goals this year is to increase the number of people I reach with my blog. Growing this community will take some extra work each week so I am going to make a change. I am going to start releasing these blogs every other weekend so in the off weeks I can focus on growing my community.
This leads me to the topic: Making decisions based on facts not fear.
There is a chance my readership will drop but I am not sure, I do not have the facts. Also if my followers drop off does that mean I do not provide enough quality content to keep them here, or does it mean I now have a core following that care more than the people that dropped off?
I do not know the answers but I cannot let fear drive this decision. Do not be afraid to test your assumptions. If you do not try new things you will have trouble growing.
So if there is an area of your life that you need to change but you are afraid, then make a little test to see if your fear is substantiated. If you make decisions based on unfounded fear then you are going to be stuck where you are.
What change do you need to make that you are afraid to make?
