Why Aren’t YOU, Your Biggest Fan?
By: Alice Coaxum
Ok, so you have a business and you want to be successful, but is that what you are projecting to others? Are you putting yourself out there where you and your business can be seen as well as communicating to others? If the answer is no then why not?
Are you struggling with feelings of self doubt? Do you just no believe enough?
There are many reasons that people wont present themselves as bright or as knowledgeable as they really are. There is a reason that many hold off from bringing their dreams into fruition and they stall or never create products that will actually sell.
Now why would someone hold back and not do their best?
Many mistakenly hold out on doing their best because of:
- Not knowing how to carry out their dreams.
- Not investing in the tools necessary to make their business run smooth, so everything is chaotic.
- Lack of faith and confidence in their self, product, company or service.
- They feel that no is interested them or their product.
- They are too worried about their more established competition.
- They are scared of messing up.
- They are afraid of being successful.
- fear of acceptance by their peers.
If you don’t exude confidence and show others that you are worth getting to know and eventually doing business with, why should anyone take a look at what you have to offer? People need to see that you feel you are the best, they aren’t going to put confidence or spend money on something they don’t even feel the creator believes in.
Why am I even going to take a look, let alone buy if you aren’t even sure about your business? Show people the real you, the confident you that believes in yourself as well as your business.
Presenting yourself on social media sites:
Does your profile read like this?
About Me: I’m okay, you might want to uhm get to know me but if you don’t it’s ok. In fact you should probably go get “whatever” from so and so because theirs is a lot better. Hope you stop by and visit me again. Please sign up for my list if you dont mind, you might be interested, but you can always opt out if you dont like what I have to offer. You probably won’t, so just forget about it. Sorry for wasting your time.
Who would visit a profile like that a second time. No one that I know of. Is your profile just dripping with a strong lack of confidence?
Of course this is an exaggeration but I want you to really think about the way you “word” the things you write regarding yourself. Do you sound sure and steady or wavy and unsure?
If you don’t believe in yourself, your abilities and your business with all your heart, you will never be able to persuade or convince anyone else to either, unless they really get to know you and see all of the good qualities and skills you possess, that you don’t see or recognize.
When it comes to social media, people are going to run across your profiles and websites, and more likely than not, they won’t know you, what you stand for or about your business. You have to show them something that makes them want to come back to site or give your business a chance to fulfill whatever needs or wants they may have .
Let the confident YOU, shine through.
Warmly wishing you success,
