“Put me in coach, I’m ready to play today.”
― John Fogerty, “Centerfield”
You can’t win a game you don’t play. It’s the same in chess, poker, and baseball. It’s true for copywriting, public speaking, and business, too. Watching from the stands doesn’t count. Standing on the sidelines won’t make any difference. Being a cheerleader isn’t enough. You need to get in the game.
So, what’s holding you back?
Maybe you don’t know the rules. No problem. You can learn them.
Maybe you think you don’t have the skills required. No problem. You can train.
Maybe you’re afraid to fail. No problem. If you fail, try again.
Get in the game. What’s the worst that can happen? Get on the field, play the game, learn, keep improving, and have fun.
