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 🙂
