As most of you probably know I’ve spent the past couple of years interviewing some of the world’s highest paid freelancers on the planet learning their insider secrets. One of the key things I learned and noticed all of them have extremely high internal beliefs. They believed in themselves even when they first got started even when they had zero clients. They believed they would figure it out no matter what.
A lot of them had to overcome large obstacles in their lives, but it never stopped them from believing. In fact one of my interviews was with Kevin Campbell who told me he had no idea whether if freelancing was going to work out for him or not.
But he wanted to follow his passion and its led to him earning over a million dollars freelancing on Upwork.
In order to succeed in anything you have to believe before you can achieve.
All successful entrepreneurs have this mindset.
Most people don’t believe in investing in themselves, so how can they believe others will invest in them? They don’t take a leap of faith during that moment they need to.
The few who do are become the exception.The few who do thrive and achieve extraordinary things.
So if what is holding you back from freelancing is that you’re not certain. Here’s a pro tip that will help put your mind at ease.
The first thing you can do is get educated, keep tuning in to Freelance University and get mentored by freelancers who have achieved what you want to achieve.
I recommend checking out my interviews with the highest paid freelancers in the world if you haven’t done so yet. You can grab them at the link above or below.
Here is an exercise that you can do. Write down a list of everything that could go wrong if you started freelancing and also write down what would you do if those things happened? You’re creating a list of all the worst case scenario thing and what you would do if those things happened.
This will help kill those limiting beliefs you have and help you get clarity.
So what you’re doing is your preparing for worst case scenarios so you’re eliminating the risk.
This the exact same strategy Kevin Campbell used before he got started with freelancing and once he did this his fear was gone.
Because he knew if any of those bad things were to happen, he had a game plan already in place.
Then I want you to write down a list of all of the benefits that could happen to you if you started freelancing and were successful. How much less stress would you have? How much more freedom would you have? Would you be able to spend more time with your loved ones?
Kevin knew that if his plan didn’t work out, he was smart, had a good degree, and could always go back and get a job if he needed to. It wouldn’t be a big deal. He could pick up right where he left off.
He also saved up a little a bit of money for his freelance journey, jus to give him a little cushion.
Then Kevin went all in, he burned his boats, didn’t look back, put in the work, and now he’s a freelancer who’s made millions.
The point is if you’re just getting started, plan for all scenarios, then go all in. You can’t have one foot in the boat and one foot out.
I hope this puts your mind at ease and if you want to get access to all of these interviews, you can grab them at the link above or below. And I will see your right back here tomorrow morning.
