Are you afraid of your own ideas? Perhaps you always go with the tried and true. Maybe you feel it’s safer that way. In some ways, it is. However, truly successful folks don’t always go with the crowd; sometimes they go with a gut idea they have, something they never heard of before. They’re not afraid to take certain risks. The timid come up with marketing ideas for themselves, for instance, but they are too chicken to try them out. Next time you have a raw idea, go for it and see if it works. Start trusting yourself.
