We need to trust our guts more. It’s that simple.
If something doesn’t feel right to you then it’s likely not right for YOU and that’s what matters.
Let me share a recent example of something that felt wrong for me for the last few weeks.
I recently began my quest to gain some traction on TikTok.
But I don’t have a ton of time to edit videos so they are TikTok friendly.
So what did I do? I went out and hired an editor.
I agreed to a certain price and the moment I agreed to it I just didn’t feel right about it.
Then when the work began, I felt even more wrong about it.
Despite my knowledge that going rates for this kind of work were somewhat comparable to the one I was paying, I just didn’t like it.
Instead of just stewing around about it, I took action.
I put out some feelers and sure enough I was able to find a person who could do the same work for a quarter of the price.
Not only that, I decided that I would try out some programs to see if I could do the work myself if I needed to.
Sure enough, within two hours I was able to edit and come up with my own TikTok videos.
It took me about 30 minutes to do one. Since I have to do 3-5 a day it’s just not time I want to spend so I’m happy to pay someone else to do so.
But the point is simple.
Something didn’t feel right and I took all appropriate action to make it feel right.
To make it feel right I adjusted the situation to meet my needs.
That adjustment could have very well been to keep paying the existing rate.
But as it turned out it wasn’t.
Remember, if something doesn’t feel right, act on it, research it, explore it, and don’t stop until it does feel right.
