The moment you start to have expectations is the start of a downward spiral where no one wins.
What’s even harder to understand is that using your loudest voice is often energy wasted on deaf ears.
What you bring to the table is important, but what’s more important is your reason for showing up to the table at all.
If you think that you can capture success by sheer will power, then you may be heading down a road of disappointment.
You can have a great product or idea, but a crappy way of leading people to it.
It’s not about giving your all, it’s about where you choose to put your effort.
If you goal is to help people, then you have a chance. Leading with thoughts of lining your pocket will undoubtedly leave you penniless.
Put your effort into creating something great.
People are smart. They can see through a fake pitch the moment it leaves your mouth.
What people are looking for is you to stand back and show them how much value you bring.
They want to come at their own pace.
The moment you do this, is when people will begin to trust you.
It’s never about the words you say or even the actions you take.
It’s about what you have to offer.
Taking a stand is hard and requires courage.
Chasing people or looking for the easy way will trigger a small reflex in the back of people’s mind.
They learn in an instant that you can’t be trusted.
But, people are forgiving. If you change how you represent yourself today and start to believe it, you can convince some to follow.
If you have a blog, simply write about your passions and let people come to you.
If what you offer is valuable, then opportunities will come your way.
If you choose to market yourself, don’t waste time and energy chasing the wrong people.
Take the time to figure out who your audience is.
But, don’t run up to them with a pitch about what they can’t live without.
And just maybe, find a new way to succeed.
