Ok. As you may recall, on Tuesday night of this week I wrote a blog about how I had messed up with this guy whom I admire and believe is an awesome Internet marketer. That post was written almost immediately after the incident.
One of the steps (secrets) to Letting Go of Stuff is to do everything you can to influence a situation before you choose to – let it go. Wanna’ know the outcome of that situation from Tuesday?
I contacted the guy, apologized, and let him know how important it was to me, to develop a professional relationship with him. Now, we are back on track and communicating via email. He has provided challenging and valuable feedback about the most recent website for my home study course. I believe that the result will be, in the long run, better for my professional growth as an Internet marketer.
The moral of the story: one is never too experienced to learn a lesson in humility. As soon as you believe you can’t learn anything new, that is when you become the most ignorant. I am a full time, life long, soak it up, student of and for life. If you are not, then you should be too.
Until next time…
Today; actually, just about an hour ago, I realized that, in my attempt to be forthcoming, honest, and anxious about making a wrong move, I offended a young man with whom I wanted to assist me with the launch of my latest online product. Wow! How can you let it go when you are the one who inadvertently offended someone else? And when the project is one of the most important projects in your life’s work?
Right now I feel crushed about it on a couple of levels. At one level, since I am new to the Internet marketing game and he is a self proclaimed millionaire in this game, I feel as though I may have truly short cut my opportunity to launch the product with him. I may also miss out on an opportunity to learn more about this game from a great resource. Second, I just feel bad because I offended someone I don’t know that well. Not my intent at all!
And to make matters worse, his email response to me, more than likely as a result of being offended, was that he did not want to work with me on this launch. He did not even want to talk about it on the phone. That was crushing to my ego and spirit. Wow! My feelings are hurt. Seriously.
Ok. The first step in letting go of acceptance and acknowledgment. With this situation, I am at step one. Lesson learned and I MUST re-gain my composure about this and move on. And I will. But in the heat of this moment, it is difficult.
I will keep you posted on how I overcome this feeling of failure. I feel I failed myself and him. Oh boy!!
