I gave Andrew a tiny rubber chicken last year while in Portland, OR and shared my story of going from not confident to confident and believing in myself. He loved the story and kept the chicken in his binder as a reminder to step into his fears daily. I talked to Andrew yesterday and he shared with me that he just landed his dream job and it was that tiny rubber chicken that kept reminding him to step into his fears and really go after his dream job. Here’s what he shared.
Andrew said, “I kept seeing that tiny little chicken and was reminded of my hesitation to step fully into what I really wanted. So, I just kept taking action. I didn’t want to live my life full of regrets and not fully going after what I really wanted. I had to keep pushing through small little hesitations and after a year of pushing myself forward, I finally got the job offer I’ve been wanting for a long time. The company is taking a leap of faith on me because they see I am committed to helping create a great customer experience and customer success for the company. There’s power in that little chicken. It’s a great reminder to daily step into your fears and create your life the way you really want it. What I learned was that I didn’t have to have it all figured out beforehand and that as I stepped into my fears I just figured out things along the way.”
