Hey everyone on today's episode of Digital Champions, I'm gonna be talking about, how to overcome the fear of being on camera.
Often people are, they say that they're afraid of the camera or that they don't want to do it, they don't feel comfortable.
The truth is you're not afraid of being on camera, you're afraid of the judgment that comes with it. You're afraid of what people may say, what people may think about you, you're worried that people may laugh at you, or that you say something dumb, or do something that somebody's going to judge you about.
If you wanna stand out, in your industry, you need to be that person that's on camera. Now listen, I understand that this is tough. I've been there. I was there.
I remember the first video that I ever posted, I was holding my phone, and I'm looking at it, and I was just, I was nervous about pressing publish. I kept watching it over and over again, and I'm like I don't know, you know, I don't know if I wanna do it, what if somebody says something, I don't know if I can take that.
But you know what, I did it. And amazing things started to happen. And the way that you can overcome, these difficulties, overcome the fear of judgment, it's very simple, it's one simple trick.
All you have to do is focus on the one person that you are trying to help. Is that not worth it? Focusing on that one person, you have knowledge in your head that can help someone else. Therefore, you have a responsibility to share that knowledge.
So when you're scared, when you're nervous, when you're thinking about, I don't know if I can do video, I don't think it's for me, you know, I'm scared of the camera, I'm scared of the judgment.
Focus on that one person that can make a huge impact. And I do wanna say this, in addition, is just because somebody else may be talking about similar content than you, does not mean, that you should not go through with it. It's okay if somebody has similar content than you because somebody out there needs to hear it from you. You are unique in your own way.
You have your own way of delivering content, delivering value, that's going to resonate specifically with somebody else. And that's what video's all about is building a community of people that resonate with you and that community.
So when you're struggling, think about that one person, hit that publish button. Alright! Are you ready? Go make it happen, get over that fear and I'll talk to you soon.
