Even though it was rushed and not very well done, it was necessary!
At times you will realize that postponing something you know you have to do has become your guilty pleasure, and when that happens you will have to push it because at that point its either now or never!
I get a lot of questions from you guys asking about the perfect moment to this or that, or how to prepare to be 100% ready.
And I have answered many times before that well, you will never find the perfect time and you will surely never be fully ready for anything, so embrace this mayhem and just try to get the best out of it.
It took me a while to realize that the best way to demonstrate this solid rule of life ” you will fail at first and you will become better with time if you have enough persistence!”
Then well, to show you a physical example of it!
This was my first ever video, I have never done anything similar to this.
Yes, I am very used to public speaking and can command a room, but this is different.
Talking to a camera is so much harder than talking to a crowd of people, at least for me.
when you talk to a group of people, you can sense the room, you can physically see when you are fucking up and adjust accordingly.
Fucking up is my thing, I fucked up so many times that I got so good at dealing with it! that is basically the essence of my “Charm”
But I can’t fuck up in-front of a camera because, by the time I realize what has happened, the damage will be already done!
So yes, I am scared and nervous of this, but hell, you got to do what you got to do.
I have to fail in order to succeed.
So what if I ended up on some Youtube Cringe Compilation for my first 30 Vlogs!
It’s ok it will pass.
So here I am, with all my reputation on the line, pushing something so outside of my comfort zone, with no time to spare, and not much actual benefit out of it other than it is outside of my comfort zone and it is what I need to do to GROW!
Stop being a wuss, get out there and let people make fun of you until you learn how to ace it!
