Full potential show ep. 6 taking action even if you're not 100% ready

  1. 1. Full Potential Show Episode 6:Taking Action, Even If You’re Not 100% ReadyH ello, I’m James Rick. Welcome to today’s Full Potential Show - where this is your number one source for living your best, cutting your costs, and doing what you love. Today is a very simple show about starting whatever it is that you want to do in yourlife and not worrying about the criticism that is sure to follow.You see, the Full Potential Show had its start in the very same way - raw, down and dirty. I justsaid, “Let’s get it out there, and we’ll refine it as we go.” I have gotten plenty of criticism on thefirst few shows, especially from industry veterans who say, “What are you doing? The sheet,you know. The text, the graphics, the support, you’ve got to do this, you’ve got to do that.” Youknow what? I accepted it all with an open mind and an open heart. Now this show will only getbetter and better as we continue to enhance it. So, that’s how I started the show.Even before that, seven years ago, when I started my call-center business, my outsourcingbusiness, I didn’t know what the heck I was doing, but I got into the business anyway andnaively sort of discovered my way through the school of hard knocks. Eventually, it becamewhat many would call a successful company. Again, I had no idea what I was doing. In fact, I remember one of the very first, and biggest, investments that I made was in a sign. I had probably $1,000 capital available to me at the time. I said, “I am going to get a sign for $500. I’m going to put it on the roof, because I know when people are aware that this company exits, people are going to show up and they’re going to pay me money.” That wasn’t how it worked at all. In fact, the sign was useless and I think a couple of months later, the Full Potential Show Episode 6 Transcript Taking Action, Even If You’re Not 100% Ready www.fullpotential.com
  2. 2. wind blew my sign over.The important point here is that I got started. Even though I made mistakes, I got started.Fortunately, the mistakes that I made weren’t critical, they didn’t kill me. So, I didn’t make anycritical mistakes, but I did make mistakes. I did get criticized, and eventually I found my way. Ifound how to do things. I had a goal and I eventually found my way to that goal.How can you apply getting started, down and dirty? Have you beentrying to perfect something, are you a perfectionist in many ways? Areyou afraid of criticism? Whatever it is that you might be afraid of starting(but feels very close to you, in terms of something you’re inspired to do)this show is about encouraging you to take that first step, to not beafraid of the criticism. In fact, be open to it, because that is going to beyour path for improvement, that external feedback.This is the Full Potential Show. I’m James Rick.
