I have been “exploring” video production/quality using my iPhone as well as my Nikon camera. This clip is straight from the iPhone, and after processing it I realized that the camera orientation does matter, hence the black frame around my very vertical video.
This is a small, yet excellent, example for today’s post. I could have freaked because my video wasn’t “perfect” as the orientation was incorrect. I could have scheduled a time to re-do the video, or just dumped the video altogether out of fear that someone will criticize, tell me I did it wrong, or judge my “professional” skills.
But here is the thing, instead of saying I failed, I knew I was just “exploring” new video options. I was not attached to the outcome of the quality of the video. To be honest, I didn’t even know if it would come out. But once I realized that my message came across OK, I was good to post it.
How many times have you shelved something that you really wanted to do out of fear? What areas of your life remain paralyzed? Watch this short video for a tip to shift your mindset.
