Have you ever felt annoyed by the person who constantly tries to prove their point irrespective of the reaction of their audience?
I’m not talking about the person trying to get their point across by various creative methods. You can’t go quiet or shrink yourself just because people are uncomfortable, but there’s a difference between desperately trying to STAND OUT and actually creating awareness with your point of view.
In today’s cutthroat market, entrepreneurs think that the loudest, boldest, and the fanciest message is equivalent to being smart and successful.
They couldn’t be more wrong!
If you only talk and don’t walk the part, how are you supposed to create an impact that will change lives and help you become more successful at the same time?
One of the biggest misconceptions is that being an “introvert” or a rather “quiet” person is a disadvantage that can screw you over in the long run.
When, in fact, if you look closely, some of the most accomplished entrepreneurs out there weren’t super smart, extraordinarily brilliant or outgoing in the beginning.
Not being the loudest person doesn’t mean you can’t be a good leader or a great entrepreneur, on the contrary, when you are a quiet person, you tend to connect with your intuition even MORE, closely observe things/responses around you, and take calculated action accordingly.
Every small step you take towards improving yourself and your business matters, whether or not you climb on the highest mountain to let everyone down below know.
Often times your best pitch or an important announcement can go unnoticed if you blab on and on about the inconsequential things that don’t matter! And instead of reaching 10 clients who could have benefitted from your knowledge, you end up with none.
We’re all here in this world to connect and touch as many lives as possible, even if that amounts to 0.000001% of the entire population.
Because like the saying goes… aim for “Quality over quantity!”
But how do you do that?
By looking at other people’s experiences and successes?
Copying their way and following it to the letter?
A little bit, YES!
But that shouldn’t be your ONLY strategy.
You’re on a journey that’s unique to YOU, NOT someone else!
And it’s easy to get sidetracked by the idea that if a strategy worked for your competitor, it’ll work for you, too.
But that is FAR from the truth!
Every person is on a unique journey and we don’t know half the struggles they went through to get to the point they are at today.
It’s like looking at the tip of the iceberg and saying, “I wanna get there!” without knowing the innumerable obstacles and hurdles you’ll have to climb to reach it!
So trust me when I say this, it is better to be the person who gets one impactful message conveyed, rather than the person who can’t help but bombard one thing after another as if on a sprint! People today are very smart and can sniff out someone who only knows how to talk and doesn’t know how to deliver.
Let your quietness and persistence be your biggest asset, and do the talking!
Be the person who helps others, impacts lives and provides something meaningful to those in need! As your hard work absolutely pays off when you keep your head down and let your actions speak for you!
