To Inspire Your Way To A Productive Week
Sometimes you need a kick in the pants and a friendly reminder that what want to achieve really is possible. So, here it is:
Whatever it is you want to do, you CAN do it.
I wholeheartedly believe that. If you really put your mind to it and believe it’s possible, that success will ultimately come.
In this series weekly series, I have compiled 47 quotes from businessmen and women, public speakers, online entrepreneurs, philanthropists, artists, television show-runners and more. These people have achieved so much success, because they have also allowed themselves to fail. That’s one of the most important things to keep in mind.
What I want you to do is find someone new on this list and learn more about them. I’ve even given you a short bio to start things off.
Expand your awareness and maybe even find yourself a new role model. Many of the people on this list are incredibly influential to me, and have completely changed my view of money, business, and success.
“If people like you they will listen to you, but if they trust you they’ll do business with you.” – Zig Ziglar
What I Like About This Quote: The trust factor in business is SO important. If you don’t put forth some trust, then no one will buy from you. Be authentic, be vulnerable, be you. And remember, you don’t have to be perfect to have a successful side hustle or business.
The only thing perfection does is stop you from reaching your goals. No one in business, especially in online business, is perfect. We don’t need to be, because of the authenticity factor. If you’re authentic, the people in your audience feel like they know you. And they do get to know you. Just as you control how much you share with your audience, you also control how much your audience trusts you.
How do you really enhance that authenticity? Tell that funny, embarrassing story of something that happened to you the other day. Go live without makeup on. Go live on the fly for a few minutes without a plan. Have a stutter? Okay, you have a stutter. Don’t stress about trying to hide it.
Trust comes first, and the rest will follow.
