Just Generally Psyching Myself Out

As Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "Do one thing every day that scares you."

Today I added my shop to Heartsy (the Groupon for Etsy). Immediately my worry-mind started churning.

"What if no one likes my stuff?"

"What if EVERYONE likes it and I lose money on the deal?"

"What if this is a total scam?"

"What if I get too many orders and can't fulfill them all?"

As you can see, my scardeness vacilated between self-loathing and just generally psyching myself out. After all, wouldn't too many orders be a good problem to have?

Do one thing every day that scares me. Hmm... this definitely qualifies. I think it'll be a good thing though. You can't succeed at something unless you put yourself out there, right?
