The Resistance of the Video

Often people will delay in making a video pitch because there are subconscious fears that manifest in self-doubt:

“People will reject me.”
“I’m not good on camera.”
“I’m not going to say the right things.”

Move through this Resistance and just shoot a 30 second video pitch. It’s going to be good enough. The very fact that you would send one puts you in the top of the applicant pool.

If you want more reassurance, then record your pitch and email it to us. We’ll give you lots of encouragement.

“Rule of thumb: The more important a call or action is to our soul’s evolution, the more Resistance we will feel toward pursuing it.”
