I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this, and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough” — Marissa Mayer
I found this on the Addicted 2 Success website where they shared the “26 Highly Successful Women Share their Most Powerful Quotes” . I liked this one from Marissa Mayer and wanted to share it with you. You can check out the others on their website. Of course, I will likely use more of them for the show.
What a powerful quote from Marissa Mayer. From one of the earliest employees at Google to the CEO of Yahoo. I bet she said Yahoo, when she got that gig! She is a very intelligent and savvy woman. I would say Yahoo, too, if I can get her on the Goal Getting Podcast. So, if you know Marissa, tell her I would love to have her on the show to tell our listeners how she achieves her goals. And Marissa, if you are listening, I get in touch and let me know if you will come on the show. I am sure I listeners would love to hear from you.I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that's how you grow.

This is a powerful message Marissa is sharing. One of the best takeaways I have from this quote is, Don’t be afraid to try something you don’t know. I have heard from countless successful entrepreneurs and executives that you have to say, “Yes”, when you get asked to do something, even if you aren’t sure you can do it. Because as Marissa Mayer says, when you reach that moment where you do go, WOW!, and you push through those fears and those scary moments, that IS when you have the breakthroughs. That’s when your subconscious mind goes, “Whoa, They weren’t kidding! They Can Do It!”
So, the next time you have an opportunity to do something that you don’t think you know how to do,
DO IT ANYWAY!
When that breakthrough comes, you, like Marissa Mayer, will be unstoppable.
Have you had that breakthrough? Did you push through that moment and do what you didn’t know how to do, but were successful anyway? I’d love for you to share that experience with us.
