Its easy to assume that because you are an introvert, that you are not going to feel comfortable showing up online.
I hear that all the time.
That is why this conversation needed to happen, because that is just a misconception.
Being introverted and being fearful of showing up online is indeed two different things.
Your fear of showing up online stems from a deeper rooted fear.
It could be a fear of:
- Being embarrassed
- Other people’s opinions
- People not relating
Whatever that fear is, THAT is what is holding you back from showing up online.
Not from being introverted.
Guess what – When I started doing FB lives, I would sweat through my shirt I was so nervous.
Every time I do something new, I will sweat right through my shirt.
You need to get uncomfortable to learn how to be comfortable with doing something new.
You need to work through that fear and anxiety around the challenge that you face, or the challenge will win.
Scout Sobel & I are chatting today about this major misconception – both as introverts who indeed are very much online.
