Recently I had a real panic at work when I had to be two places at once, and it meant finding someone else to be “me” at the last minute.  I thought carefully and then asked a business contact of mine, whom I know pretty well and she rose to the challenge amazingly well.  I asked her afterwards for feedback and she admitted that if she had been given time to think about things, she would probably have talked herself out of doing it. However, she ended up making a split second decision to help out and consequently did a fabulous job. What is it that you could be talking yourself out of trying?  The “chatterbox” in our heads that Susan Jeffers talks about in Feel the Fear and do it anyway, sometimes needs to be turned down so that we allow ourselves to achieve more than we thought was possible. So, how loud is your internal chatterbox?
