I am not a natural sales person (whatever that means). But I did notice something strange. I have the uncanny ability to promote the hell out of something (and especially someone) I believe in.
All the insecurities I have about putting myself out there flee when I am talking about someone else and their goals and their accomplishments, etc. (link to post about a song by my friends, Dan and Kiko)
Why is it so hard for me to step out of the shadows? Why is it so hard for me to be there for myself? I should be my own biggest cheerleader!
In commenting on an amazing post by Farnoosh Brock at Prolific Living, I made a startling realization.
My Painful Realization
I can promote other people’s interests but not my own because I believe in them more than I believe in myself!
Now that’s a tough pill to swallow! (but it’s true)
I have spent so much time looking for the right techniques and tools to use to build my business online, but the external tools are irrelevant until the internal mechanism is set right.
When you believe in yourself enough to be true to your vision,
marketing is never a problem!
The challenge is the belief. That’s how it always is. The external world always reflects the internal reality.
Shift your beliefs and the rest will fall into place. It always works this way!
