Why taking action when you aren’t an expert is far better than studying and learning everything before you act

You might be the one person reading this that has, in the past, listened to the peer pressure or your own self-limiting beliefs and not done something because you’re not an expert.

But let me pose this question to you.

How do you gain the necessary experience if you only read up on things?

if you only digest and learn the information from a book..?

but never actually going out and doing these things…

You see – we learn more by doing!

In today’s post and podcast episode, I posed this question to myself;

Chris – why are you doing your Podcast when you’re no expert?

and I decided (after I had battled with the inner voices) that I was going to make my mistakes as I move forward.

it is in the doing where I will make the mistakes, and learn how to overcome obstacles that I may face.

So I urge you, if you are reading this post and there is one thing you have put off die to listening to the peer pressure or inner voice telling you

‘you can do this’

or ‘you need to learn and understand more before you can take action’

Then start taking action! Just begin.

Look at this website, and my Podcast. I only got back online 11th February 2017 and as of today 30 July 2017 I have built this website, published 42 posts and this is my 22nd Podcast Episode!

So to answer the WHY I publish my Podcast I have broken this down into the reasons for me and also the reasons for you my listeners and readers.

The reasons for ME:
  • I have a calling to do this
  • I enjoy it
  • I love to give and help where possible
  • I love the technical side of things
  • I am growing an asset of digital content
  • building a solid foundation
  • branding me along the way
  • It is another skill I want to learn
  • I need to get better at my delivery of content
  • It adds another dimension to my content and website
  • I may gain a new or different audience
  • I get to explore and try new things
The reasons for YOU:
  • You get to know me
  • You also get to know what I stand for
  • You will get training, advice and guidance from my podcast and posts
  • By following along you will find I have a lot of experience that will help you
  • I have a BIG heart and love to help people
  • I have a calling to do this…
  • You get to ask your questions
  • I CAN help you
  • I can teach you new things
  • I am self taught
  • To inspire you
  • To tell you that you CAN do it no matter what

There are of course a lot more reasons for me doing this, and I am sure as I grow in experience and knowledge I will move onto other things.

I will keep pushing myself, challenging myself and seeking to grow. This is something we all should be doing.

I urge you to stop listening to those limiting people or beliefs and just start today!
