My biggest fear when I started Sara Da Silva Brazilian Sportswear was to be vulnerable. I was so afraid to let myself to be seen, I was terrified to put myself on display. (I still cringe when I think about it tho)
I would always think, why would people buy from me, I'm not that interesting. Don't they know I'm not that interesting? Don't they know I'm not even from "here", they are going to hate my accent, Don't they think I'm not even "fit enough" to have a fitness brand...
I was afraid if people found out things about me they wouldn't like me, they wouldn't trust me and they would never buy from me!
Fear, oh my dear fear... always trying to kill our vibe! I can not tell you how many times I let fear to stop me...
What I have learned is that people like real people and the more real you are the more people respect and connect with you! Trying to be someone else to be loved, does not work, trust me on that, I HAVE TRIED MANY TIMES!
Now I realize that all I really need to do is try to work on myself or entertain myself, and the right people who need a similar kind of saving or entertainment will show up to partake in whatever I’m offering up.
Let yourself SEEN!
