Episode 64: When the Need for Control Holds You Back

What would happen if you could seize the moment instead of squandering it? Instead of contemplating all the things that could go wrong when you risk reaching out to a prospect, ask an important question, or push back in a conversation – think deliberately about what could go right. In this episode, Dan and Kiley discuss how to experience a steadier grip in the moment to push yourself, expand outreach, and drive conversations forward. Avoid the habit of hesitating and pulling back – making the moment the enemy. Empower yourself to let go of short-term control and comfort, so you can minimize long-term discomfort and achieve more future success.
