When I first started my business, I remember feeling sooo sick before every session. I would pray and pray before every session.
- Will I remember my settings?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Will I be able to pose them?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Will I be awkward?
- Will I be able to carry a conversation?
- Will I look at the back of my camera too much?
- Will they think I’m a fraud?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Will the dad HATE being there?
- Will they trust me?
- Will I trust myself?
I think it’s good to worry a little bit because it shows you care. When you care enough to be worried, you can prepare more. a little bit of worry makes people better. But when it becomes more stress than fun the lies and negative self talk need to stop.
Have you ever felt this way in your business? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You’re not alone. And sometimes just knowing that, helps a lot.
