The Hundred Dollar Club Update

Wow – it’s been quite a week since my last post.  I was nervous about deciding to put the idea for The Hundred Dollar club out there.  The old me probably wouldn’t have done it.  I would have thought about it, and then tweaked, refined and changed the idea in my head for a few weeks and then ultimately not done it.

I’m very glad that the old me isn’t in charge here.  This time, I gave it a shot, and put something out there.  It was an idea, but it was (and still is) only partly formed.  I didn’t check it out with anyone before posting, I just went for it.  And I’m very very glad I did.

It clearly helped that Chris tweeted about it. The post has so far had over 600 views, and more than 20 people have applied to be part of it. This far exceed my expectations, has really boosted my confidence and reinforced my new found belief in the power of doing. This is a minor success in many ways, but remember, I’m only comparing myself to me here, so actually this is a major success.

If that’s inspired you to do something,  big or small, let me know.  If I could be so bold, I’d suggest that there is still almost a week to go to apply to become a member of The Hundred Dollar Club, so maybe the thing that you do is apply by sending me a message or a comment?  Why not – what have you got to lose?

Cheers

  1. Hey Rob

    Just had a chance to read this, and I’m so very glad that you went with your instincts! We are all capable of change, but getting over the fear of failure is the primary challenge. Here’s a great quote: “There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” – Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

    And I love that you’re comparing yourself with yourself! I shall remind myself to do that the next time I doubt my achievements :)

    As Will Smith said in one of his interviews, ‘We don’t set out to build a perfect wall. We start by laying each brick as perfectly as possible….’ (or something along those lines).

    • Thanks Lindy. I’m trying very hard to just do this, and not think about why I shouldn’t or couldn’t.
