Remember that Dave Matthews song “Ants Marching”?
Sure you do.
When all the little ants are marching
Red and black antennas waving
I can’t get it outta my mind since I read about this…
The flies “dive-bomb” the ants and lay eggs on ’em. But here’s the really gross part.
Maggots hatch inside the ants and eat their brains until the ants show “zombie-like behavior” and stray from their mounds.
Then in a week or two, the fire ants’ heads all fall off.
Just imagine — tens of thousands of zombified fire ants, scurrying aimlessly until their craniums plop!
Ever felt like that?
I sure have.
For the longest time, whenever I’d wanna create a new business or product, I’d take forever getting started — if I ever got started at all. In fact, I’d do almost anything but get started. Why? Fear, anxiety, lack of confidence — coulda been any one or all of ’em.
Heck, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that I’d waste a lot of time running around like, well, like a headless fire ant!
But I don’t do that anymore.
As internet coach Chris Farrell and I discussed in a recent audio report — http://www.wallyconger.com/stopworrying — you can only release the anxiety that comes from not starting a project by…starting!
So today, just another little nudge from me.
Get started on whatever you’ve got waiting. And be sure to keep your head while you do.
