When I pretended
Shannon here with a HUGE EPIC FAIL.
It was a number of years ago when I started Speaking. And when you’re just starting out and have yet to see any “success” – you do what most people do starting out:
FAKE IT UNTIL YOU MAKE IT
How did I “fake” it?
I had this ONE amazing Speaker in mind when I started out. And I just wanted to be HER.
I wanted to have her huge stages, massive income and Big Impact. So I tried to be like her.
And ya know what? It didn’t work!
After enough times falling on my face in front of those early audiences – I realized I can’t be someone else anymore.
I had this inspired idea that if I STOPPED trying to be like her and started to just be ME – it might be easier… and more FUN too! And ya know what?! EVERYTHING changed.
But I was just SO embarrassed of myself after things turned around. Especially now, with Mark at my side and we’re rocking a 7-figure Speaking business, LOVING our incredible Tribe – I am SO embarrassed how little I believed in myself then.
Let me know in the comments below:
Did you ever PRETEND and Regret it? How did you turn things around?
Your comment will inspire the Tribe – we’d LOVE to hear from you 🙂
Mark here with something… ROCKIN.
Forget your strategies. Ignore what you learned about “marketing”. Get rid of any piece of information you have about “Speaking” and commit to this mantra:
I WILL BE WILDLY MYSELF
This is a HUGE reason Shannon and I feel we’ve been able to do what we’ve done in just 2 years. To go from 0-$400,000 in 10 months and within 2 years to have a 7-Figure business – has everything to do with us NOT being anyone else…but our wild selves.
It’s crucial you START with this. If you need, inject it into your veins. Because your Tribe wants YOU – no one else. No one’s message or personality to special gifts – they only want YOU.
And every part of YOU.
Your humor, your quirks, your energy, your spirit, yourSELF. Give YOURSELF more to the world, raw and wild as you are – and watch your Big Impact UNLEASH itself faster than you ever thought possible.
