Do you ever feel fake? I mean like you’re trying so hard to get attention, or get a sale, that you don’t even feel like yourself anymore?
I’ve been there and it made me feel ICKY!
I’ve been in various MLM (multi-level marketing) type businesses over the years, and each one regardless of the empty promises to make hundreds of thousands of dollars, left me flat out broke and feeling just plain icky. In fact, I even lost a few friends and disrespected family because of these businesses.
The reason is not that these businesses don’t work. I don’t look down upon anyone in MLM type businesses because a few have seen real and lasting success. The reason behind MY personal failure is due to conforming myself to someone that is not me! I stopped being myself, and conformed to the selling style and methods of my “sponsor”.
NEVER EVER DO THIS! Anytime you move one INKLING away from your own personality in ANYTHING you do, you will drain yourself! Always be authentically you! Any other version of “you” will lead to that icky feeling all over again. One step away from how you talk as a person, will lead you to hard selling that damages your relationships with other people. One social interaction that doesn’t have the direct touch from your personality will damage your social reputation and leave you with a hurt business.
Regardless of how successful the “methods” are, unless it matches to who you are as a person, and you feel RIGHT about incorporating it into who you are, DON’T CONFORM! BE YOURSELF!
Are you listening to me? You are an amazing person! You have a God-given personality that no one else can match. BE YOU! Be you in not only in life, but also in your business.
