I am in need of some peer pressure. I have written before about the power of accountability and I am again in need of some. This time though I’d like it from you…
Bravery Vs Fear
I keep on wanting to take myself to my local and very friendly open mic, then when it comes to the day I find myself a very convincing ‘reason’ why today is not the right day. These ‘reasons’ vary but are always just good excuses to avoid the fear I will feel when I sit in front of people and a mic, alone with my Ukulele and my voice.
The next open mic is on Wednesday the 23rd September and I would like as many people as possible to comment below so I know this has been read. My plan is that the more people I know are expecting me to be brave and turn up, the more likely it is that I’ll want to show my bravery to you. That’s the power of accountability.
Why Do it?
Bravery is the whole point of this blog. When we step out of our comfort zones we grow, we learn, and we experience life. When we don’t we can get complacent and stagnant. I wholeheartedly believe in growth and pushing boundaries so I know I must do what I say! And I will. Especially with your lovely support.
So feel free to leave a word or two of encouragement below and I thank you hugely in advance. And if you have anything you want to do, and need some accountability in return, let me know!
Let’s all just do it.
Right, I’m off to practice my set…
Update: I have now attended two open mics and I completely survived the experience. The hardest part was getting myself out of the house the first time. The thought of doing things never quite matches up to the experience!
