There are people who will try to stop you from sharing your story. Ever heard this – WHY DO YOU POST SO MUCH ON SOCIAL MEDIA? DO YOU REALLY NEED TO SHARE ON LINKEDIN? WHY DO YOU PUT PICTURES UP ON INSTAGRAM?
How about this – have you heard these?
Just work hard – people will eventually see what you’re doing. There is no need to focus on social media – nobody goes there anyway.
Companies will say to me – why should I post more than once a day? WELP, do you have more than one demographic you’re trying to reach? That’s why. Sharing your story is vital. In-person and on social media.
Have you made mistakes? GOOD, welcome to the failure club. People who don’t fail also never succeed – failure is a requirement of success…if you don’t understand that, ask yourself how you’re really doing.
HOW DO YOU SHARE YOUR STORY?
This is the harder part especially for those who aren’t natural born storytellers. In the book I focus on this a TON – why? People aren’t oracles…You are the best at what you do? Have immense integrity? Work hard? Awesome experience that sets you apart? If you don’t share through stories – not in a cheesy or braggy way – how does anyone know?
Afraid to share because you’re afraid of what people think?
Well, here is the deal. Those people aren’t paying your bills and when you’re 80 years old, they won’t care. I love a good naysayer – I have a whole rolodex full of naysayer names – when I need some inspo I just pull out a name and continue to crush it. You should too.
