This is such an important article! I’ve thought about this before – how you need to be willing to embarrass yourself in order to succeed. For example, as a blogger, I have to share posts on social media. It’s embarrassing when I only receive 10 likes and 0 comments, but I know that it’s just something I have to go through right now.

I have to keep in mind that this embarrassment won’t last forever. You can’t focus on it too much because then you’re going to stop yourself from ever taking risks. The best we can do is feel confident in ourselves and our long-terms goals!

We might feel embarrassed now, but a year from now, when we see results, it will have all been worth it. Great post, Michael! Thanks for sharing.
