Scared You’ll ___________? Here’s a Clever Little Mental Tip for Becoming UNF*CKWITHABLE.

In: Finding Your Voice

HI, IT’S FRIDAY, and I’m sure you’re probably about to do all sorts of things I absolutely approve of. *slow clap*

To assist you in your ventures—which may or may not include spending the next 48 hours sitting your ass down at your laptop, hustling to grow your business / working on that project / making something from nothing / trying to remember to apply a second coat of deodorant—I thought I would share a little piece of advice one of our Unf*ckwithable Girlfriends posted yesterday, as a #TeachableThursday. (It’s a thing we do every week. IT IS SO MUCH FUN LEARNING EVERY SINGLE INSIDE TIP EVERYONE HAS FROM ALL OF THEIR INDUSTRIES / LIVES / BUSINESSES / BRAWLS.)

Anyway, she was talking about getting past all of those clench-your-ass-in-fear moments we all have from time to time, and using curiosity to do that. And I quote:

“If you’re afraid of something, find a way to be curious about some aspect of it.”

And, you know? I just about fell out of my seat with joy. Isn’t that just the most useful idea for becoming more unf*ckwithable?

  • Instead of being afraid of the airplane, learn how it works.
  • Instead of being terrified of giving your elevator pitch, study what makes a great one.
  • Instead of feeling like you’re an imposter all the time, do so much motherfucking research that you could school ANYONE’S ASS OUT THERE. (If those fools want to bring it, that is.)

Because isn’t that where fear stems from in the first place? Not knowing.

So, what if you went on a mission to find out?

Whatever you’re doing this weekend, I hope you’ll get curious.

It’s hard to be scared of something you’re an expert in.

A Note of Support for All My Dreamers Getting Their Ideas Pooh-Poohed By Their Family, Their Friends, Their Spouses, and Their Neighbors (Fucking Neighbors, Am I Right?)

In the year 2010, friends would call and say: “So, how’s your blooooooooggggggg?” The tone was obvious: How’s your cute little imaginary friend that you think is going to save you from the real world that the rest of us have to suffer through? The year 2011, I made $103,000 with that blog—a far cry […]

Look, We’ve All Got Our Faults. *Stomps Cigar*

Look, we’ve all got our faults. I, for one, have a wrinkly ass neck. I don’t know how it happened. I don’t know when it happened. But all the sudden there are lines as deep as the Panama Canal cutting across my trachea. Fortunately, all the resveratrol I’ve consumed over the years seems to have […]

How to Be the Most Confident Person At The Table

When somebody doesn’t buy from you, which are you thinking? “Man, I’m a loser”  or “Man, they’re a loser.”  Getting cocksure is the very first order of business. And if you don’t feel sure of yourself, you know what you need? Not more clients. You need to sit your ass down, read 100 books, grovel for the […]

Nice Brands Finish Last

[x_blockquote type=”center”]I take it as an insult when somebody calls me The N Word: Nice.[/x_blockquote] Out of 100,000 adjectives in the English language, if the best you can come up with is nice, then I’m doing something wrong. It’s like spending Thanksgiving Day ripping out gizzards and mashing actual potatoes, only to be told that […]

Plan On Being Nervous, Brilliantly

Being nervous sucks. Your pulse races. Your brain blanks. Your hands shake like little assholes. You tell yourself to take deep breaths, but the minute you do, you then worry that the entire room can see the fact that your heart is, in fact, doing the electric slide up and down your rib cage. (God […]

Defiance or Defeat? You Pick.

Sometimes, the shit hits the fan. Sometimes, you find yourself living out of your car, storing all of your toiletries in an oversize red purse, lodging sweatshirts in between head rests and sunroof panels to block the windows so you can sleep, explaining to unsympathetic credit card companies that you can’t pay your $41 minimum […]
