Many of us find ourselves in this self-doubt spiral that holds us back. In this podcast episode, we’re going to tackle this and more. Let’s dive in.
Episode 37: Is Your YouTube Script Mocking You? – Podcast Transcript
Hey, Thrivers. I’m Sara Nguyen, creator of the Thriving Creator Academy, and I’m here to help you go from stuck and overwhelmed to becoming a confident, profitable, and thriving YouTube creator. Join me here each week for honest conversations about what it really takes to be a successful YouTube creator.
Without compromising your creativity, sacrificing cheeky drinks with the people you love or downtime for yourself. You’ll hear about the hard lessons I’ve gone through so you can avoid making the same slow and costlymistakes on your journey.
As well as my secret weapons to help you dig deep and do the work it takes. I’m honoured and grateful to have this opportunity to share this together with you. Right here, on the Thriving Creator Podcast. I’m glad you’re here. Let’s get started.
Have you ever found yourself engrossed in a battle of wits with a blank screen? Trying to write the YouTube script for an upcoming YouTube video?
Does it seem as though your script is taunting you? For most of my clients, the answer is either:
A, all the time.
B I gave up trying to write my YouTube script or outline and have been avoiding it for at least two months now.
C I wrote something, but I hated it. So I didn’t record it.
Or D, wrote something, didn’t love it, recorded the video and didn’t get any results. Which one sounds most like you? Regardless. You’re definitely not alone.
Often my clients find themselves at a crossroad. They’re unsure about what content to include in their YouTube videos. Doubting if it’s engaging enough, or if it’s polished to perfection.
It’s like the inner critic takes the wheel and suddenly, they find themselves questioning everything. Even their own capabilities. Hello, dreaded imposter syndrome. With such a swarm of self-doubt and confusion, it’s no wonder that the idea of actually releasing a YouTube video can feel like an impossible task.
Take this client of mine, an extraordinary spiritual coach. I mean, absolutely amazing. Despite receiving tons of praise for her work, she’s been quiet on YouTube for over a year due to self-doubt because imposter syndrome had kicked in.
Even though she literally had pages and pages and pages and pages of people praising her work, thanking her for the coaching she offers, saying how much she changed their life, she’s still afraid that it’s not good enough.
And so the last time she even released a new video was over a year ago. That means for an entire year, she hasn’t been able to release more content, sharing her genius that could change even more lives.
For more than a year, there have been people looking for more of exactly what she has to offer, but just didn’t get it because she didn’t share it. It’s time to unleash that video and dazzle the world with your one of a kind magic.
Believe me, your audience is eagerly waiting to be captivated by every single moment of it. But here’s the thing, I get it, just saying don’t be anxious is about as helpful as a broken umbrella in a thunderstorm.
So let’s dive into something more practical, actionable, and real-world. Let’s explore some of the steps you can actually take. First, establish a system for creating videos that requires minimal oversight. This way your videos get released regardless of your mood swings or self-doubt.
How can you do this? Start by determining the style and structure for your videos. Once you’ve decided this, you have a reasonable framework, no need to reinvent the wheel every time. Secondly, get a video editor who is not you.
Trust me. It’s a game-changer. It allows you to produce videos faster. Irrespective of your mood. Or how much time you have. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, I’m here to help. I’ve put together a YouTube masterclass to guide you through the process of creating compelling videos, which will get your audience engaged and buying.
