As humans, we tend to like staying in our comfort zone.
I admit, I’m not always a big fan of doing new things. I don’t consider myself a Nervous Nellie, but I’m not likely to engage in extreme sports either.
It’s actually good for us to stretch and do things that are a little scary. It’s only in those moments of uncertainty where we find out who we really are and what we’re really made of.
Here’s a HUGE aha moment I got last week having some fun at the beach and doing something a little outside of my comfort zone.
No part of fundraising has to be scary.
Focus on the people who will benefit from the work your organization does, instead of the nervousness you might be feeling.
Their need is greater than your fear of fundraising.
