This week’s video has a message I really wanted to get out to you before the New Year.
In taking this on, doors are going to open up to you that never would have before, you’re going to be free to take risks that you otherwise wouldn’t, and feel liberated that you are allowed to mess up.
It’s about why it’s important to experience embarrassment, and how to get over your fear of it.

From The Video
It’s not an understatement to say I used to spend an enormous amount of energy trying to avoid embarrassing situations.
I would not approach a woman I was interested in because I was worried it might go wrong. I would avoid getting on stage and speaking in front of audiences for fear of looking foolish…
And the problem with avoiding embarrassment is that it prevents you from doing the things you want to do.
We wonder why the people we’re attracted to aren’t attracted to us – while everyone we’re not attracted to swarms us like flies.
The reason is, when we’re in front of the person we’re attracted to, we’re deathly afraid of embarrassment and this causes us to close down our channels, sensor ourselves, and prevents us from getting across our personalities.
There’s a case for embarrassment I want to make to you:
1) People Will Like You More
People like to see the human side of others, and we see the most human side of people when they mess up. The Pratfall Effect is the idea that if you’re perceived to be competent at something and you mess up, people will like you more.
2) It Helps You Learn
If you can allow yourself to screw up, it helps you gain the reference points to do something better next time. Failure can help lead to success, and part of failure is going through a little embarrassment here and there.
3) It Liberates You
Allowing yourself to be embarrassed is allowing yourself to get the best out of life. It’s freeing yourself up to use your creative channels and experience the greater things life has to offer. The moment you’re willing to embarrass yourself is the moment you’re completely free.
