27 Dec Pushing Through the Anxiety
Most professionals I meet with ask me about Legacy Forum. At least there is a viral component to our acceptance or existence. If the person(s) is qualified for membership by virtue of trusted advisor status and ownership in his/her firm, I may ask if he/she wants to guest at a meeting. Nearly everyone says yes, enthusiastically. Then, the malaise or anxiety creeps into them prior to their actual appearance at a group meeting.
I guess that feeling is based on “unknown fear” of how will an already existing, close knit group accept me. You never know until you step up to the experience. I admit that I am not (nor probably is anyone) totally immune to potentially uncomfortable situations. Yet, I know the importance of making and solidifying the best and right connections/relationships.
Thus, I implore you with any completely new environment to push through the anxiety. It only lasts for a short time anyway.
