7. You Don’t Need to Know How [Podcast]

Woman wondering how

Have you ever put off something because you don’t know how to do it? Or worse yet, you don’t know how it’s going to turn out? I hear this all the time.

How will I know what’s going to happen?

How will I know if I will succeed?

How do I know if I’m making the right decision?

Y’all, if I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard someone worry about HOW they were going to make something happen, I would definitely be a multi-millionaire.

Did Oprah know how she would take her locally based Chicago tv show and turn it into a nationally syndicated show that she fully owned only to become a billionaire? (I would rush home after school to watch Oprah every single day at 4pm!)

Did Michael Jordan know how he would become the greatest basketball player of all time? (Yes, I said it…better than all the others…#childofthe80s)

Did Sara Blakely know how she was going to get on Oprah’s favorite things episode and make Spanx a household name? (Come on, you know I love me some Sara Blakely #bosswomancrush!)

NO!!! They didn’t. If you know anything about their stories, and the stories of so many other super badasses who created success for themselves, they had no idea HOW it was going to happen. The thing they did know? They knew they were going to MAKE it happen!

And that’s what today’s episode is all about…suspending the belief that you have to know HOW something is going to happen.

In this episode, I’m busting out my top 4 action steps to move you from worrying about how something is going to happen, to making it happen!

Speaking of not knowing how something would happen, I am super pumped to share with you that I will be a TED speaker at TEDxSMUWomen on November 29th. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I could have this opportunity. TED was for other people, not for someone like me. But I focused on my message and my speaking skills, and BOOM, it’s happening! The topic…obviously, you know, it’s gotta be on confidence!
