I learned to use a chainsaw a few years ago. It’s an essential skill when you live where I do, surrounded by trees in a high-wind area. I was petrified but I had an experienced teacher and, over time, my confidence grew and the fear dissipated. I still have a healthy respect for chainsaws but I do smile when I think about how long it took me to make the decision to learn how to use one, and how terrified I was at the time.

Don’t be afraid of being a beginner. We are all beginners at something somewhere along the line, whether it is learning to drive (remember how clunky that was!!!); joining a gym; learning ballroom dancing; playing the guitar, starting a new business or learning how to chop up a tree. The next time you’re reluctant to start something new, ask yourself what’s stopping you. Hope you love this Teacherlife tshirt. Check it out!
Turn your fear into excitement. Find a good teacher, a good mentor, a good trainer, etc. Think about the benefits. Think about the possibilities. Think about the personal satisfaction when you accomplish that goal. I’m not sure where you learned to whisper but I’m guessing inside a helicopter surrounded by chainsaws. Ask yourself if it’s life threatening. Chances are it won’t be, but it could very well be LIFE CHANGING.
