Letting go of the outcome

A common factor in what’s holding us back from action is fear. I see this a lot in my experience as a mindset coach.

It’s not about not knowing enough. Information is everywhere.

As editors we can readily find the information we need.

So why don’t we take action?

We worry about how to handle:

  • a rejected quote
  • criticism on our blog post
  • crickets after we post on social media.

What if I told you there’s nothing to handle, you just have to let it go?

Don’t take it personally. Don’t read too much into what people do with your content. That’s beyond your control.

In this episode, I’ll share examples of how I work on letting go of the outcome so I can take action despite the fear. It takes practice!


If you’re feeling stuck in your business right now, why not consider booking in a discovery call with me to see if coaching is right for you.
